As a professional Photographer, I love all kinds of sessions. Whether it be children, families, newborn babies, or expectant mommies, I enjoy being part of the experience and fun of my clients lives. Fresh 48 sessions are no exception. The Fresh 48 is a photo session that takes place in the hospital, birthing center, or home (for home birth), within the first two days of your baby’s life. There is something special about capturing those breathtaking moments of a sweet newly born baby connecting with parents, siblings, and loved ones for the first time.
If you’ve never heard of a fresh 48, here is how it works-
If you decide you’d like to book a Fresh 48, you reserve your session ahead of time. I take a limited amount per month due to the last minute nature of the session. I typically book 2-3 months in advance.
When you are on your way to the hospital, you or a loved one just give me a quick call or text to let me know the time has come! The day after the birth, at a time convenient for you, I will come visit for this special session. This gives mom and dad a little time to catch their breath and bond with this precious new soul. Fresh 48 sessions are photographed in a more candid, lifestyle approach. I want to stand back and observe the real interactions between new baby and mom, dad, and siblings if present. Capturing the moment the baby turns its head towards moms soothing voice, the wide eyed, curious look they give as they try to focus on dad, and the look of awe as siblings meet their new family member for the first time. I also want to preserve those little details- toes, eyes, nose, lips, and any other tiny feature that will quickly change and grow over the next few days.
