I have been photographing newborns for almost 10 years. So last year when I was asked by a client if I would do their Fresh 48 session I was thrilled! I was immediately hooked, and couldn’t wait to start offering these sessions as an add on to my normal in home sessions, or as a stand alone service.
We all know that babies change so, so fast. Just from the day they are born to the day we do their newborn session they have already changed! Those wrinkly little feet fill out along with those yummy cheeks. Their umbilical stump may have fallen off, and their face has already started to change.
Having 4 boys myself, there are still details I remember about each of their births, but I wish that I even had more pictures of each of their time just born. Things about the room, or siblings meeting them for the first time. Or just those special first hours of breathing them in, and knowing your life will never be the same.
I’ve had clients say although they love their newborn pictures; their Fresh 48 pictures mean the most to them. A compliment I will gladly take!
There is just something raw and beautiful about these images and the stories they tell. And every story is different. Every birth is different, but watching people become parents right before my lens is humbling. And I tear up at almost every session hearing the stories of these little miracles.
I know there are photography services offered now at many hospitals. Which can be convenient. But please be sure to check the pricing and packages beforehand so you are aware of the style variations, as well as what is and is NOT included.
I am so, so honored to be one of the first people who get to meet that sweet baby! Please let me know if you have any questions about adding on or booking your Fresh 48 session. I promise you will not regret it!
