A Fresh 48 session is named for the very first 48 hours after a newborn is born. Typically done at the place you gave birth whether that be at home, in the hospital or at the birth center, these photos are intimate and so special, documenting some of the most tender hours of life as a new family.
Any stage with a baby is fleeting and even more so in the first week. Your whole world has been turned upside down by the arrival of this sweet newborn. Freeze these tender moments in time and you’ll be amazed at how much you missed in the whirlwind that is birth and postpartum.
Your Fresh 48 photographer can capture moments like your older children meeting the new baby for the first time, the tiniest newborn feet and hands with the delicate skin still wrinkled from time in the womb, the skin-to-skin bonding and first moments of breastfeeding.
Lifestyle newborn photos are often done when everyone is settled in at home. It may involve choosing outfits and coordinating children and even having your pets involved. Fresh 48 is a more raw and real look at the first moments of your newborn joining your family. Both are beautiful and document a different aspect of your story.
When you book a Fresh 48 session, I will save your due date in my schedule and remain on-call for your family around that time frame. When your baby has arrived (or before, if you have a support person to call for you during labor!) I’ll be prepared for the text or call saying you’re ready for me.
