WHAT IS A FRESH48 SESSION?
Fresh48 sessions are special photo sessions for families that what their brand new baby photographed without having the whole labor and delivery documented. These sessions are held within the first 48 hours of baby’s life and are perfect for remembering the details of your brand new baby fresh after birth. Fresh48 sessions are lifestyle sessions that take place at your place of birth and include no posing, props, or artificial lighting.
WHAT TO EXPECT
For these sessions I will arrive at your birthplace within 48 hours of your baby’s birth. Fresh48 sessions tend to go more smoothly taking place in the early afternoon hours when the light is beautiful and you have (hopefully) had a chance to get some rest after giving birth. When I arrive I will check out the space, evaluate lighting, things like that, and then we get started. For the remainder of the session I will be following baby’s lead. I always try to include specific elements in a Fresh48: Feeding time, changing, cuddling, both parents bonding with baby, and baby’s little details like hands, feet, hair, etc. After I have gotten everything I need to complete your gallery I will slip out quietly. Sessions typically don’t take more than an hour, but I allot 90 minutes just in case.
WHO SHOULD BE THERE?
It is best to try to keep these sessions as intimate as possible. Especially in a hospital setting, the room is small and including extended family and such can cause issues with space. I do encourage parents to try to arrange for older siblings to arrive about 15-20 minutes after I arrive so I can document their reactions to meeting their new baby.
