What are Fresh 48 Sessions?
Fresh 48 sessions take place within the first 48 hours after your baby’s birth at the hospital, birth center, or home, and capture a precious, fleeting time in your baby’s life. Your baby changes so rapidly in those first days and weeks that even a newborn session will not quite capture the brand newness that a Fresh 48 captures. (Although my recommendation is to book both a Fresh 48 session and Lifestyle Newborn Session because of how quickly your baby changes. You will never regret documenting your precious bundle of joy in those early days!)
Why Should I Have a Fresh 48 Session?
Fresh 48 sessions can also be a great substitute for a Birth Story Session if you aren’t quite comfortable with the idea of birth photography, but still want pictures at the hospital. Fresh 48 sessions are lifestyle, or real life, sessions so I will come to your place of birth and capture you and your baby interacting naturally, the details of you and baby’s stay in the hospital, and all of your baby’s tiny features. Depending on your preferences, we can also plan for me to be there for your baby meeting siblings, grandparents, and dear friends for the first time; getting his or her first bath; or other special milestones.
How does scheduling a Fresh 48 work?
After you have reserved your due date for a Fresh 48, we will plan a pre-session consultation either by phone or in person, to discuss your vision for your session and the special moments you are hoping to document. As your due date approaches, we will stay in contact so that I know when you go into labor. Once the baby has made his or her grand appearance, you will call me to schedule the exact time (during daytime hours) that I will come to your birth place and capture these sweet moments.
