you will always remember when you held your baby for the first time

The Fresh 48 Session is for families who want those first hours and first days of their baby’s life remembered, outside of the rigors of labor and delivery. The session takes place in the hospital or birthing center during the first 12-48 hours after the birth of your baby. The relaxed lifestyle photography captures first feedings, sibling introductions, the place of their birth, quiet moments, and all the newness of this brand-new tiny human.

fresh 48 details

Only 1-2 Fresh 48 Session is scheduled each month so that I am available for the two weeks before/after your due date.  When we reach the final weeks, we’ll stay in touch and eagerly await baby’s arrival. Once baby does arrive, we’ll schedule a time during the day to photograph this special welcome, typically during the first 12-48 hours.  An online gallery will be delivered within 72 hours so you can formally introduce baby to the world.

Payment is due in full two weeks before your due date in order to proceed with the Fresh 48 Session. Most families choose to divide the package into payments to make things easier.  You may also choose the digital package and upgrade to the digital + album package or add on a la carte after receiving your gallery.

Each baby is a precious gift and I look foward to welcoming your little one. 


Can we meet first?

Before our session we'll set up a consultation, which can take place over the phone if you're pressed for time or at the studio if you'd like to meet in person. I'm going to be a part of some of your most intimate and vulnerable times and having that trust established is vital so you feel comfortable and at ease in my presence. 

What if the baby comes early?

Every baby is on their own schedule and we're just along for the ride! I make sure to gray-out the weeks before and after your due date (and won't take a due date if I'm going to out-of-town during that time) and will stay in contact in the days leading up. Whenever baby does make their arrival, you'll have my personal cell number and we'll set the time for your Fresh 48 session. 

What about digital images?

Everyone wants the digital images and I want you to have them, too! That's why the digital files from our session are included in each Fresh 48 package, with full printing rights. The images are also archived for one year afterwards, just in case you accidentally delete them and need the files replaced. 

What should we wear?

Fresh 48 sessions are relaxed and as close to 100% natural as we can get. Parents are blissfully exhausted and this is not the time to bring out the fancy clothes. Just wash up, put on something clean, and love on that new baby. 

Where do sessions take place?

Schedueld for the first 12-48 hours after birth, Fresh 48 sessions can take place at the hospital, birthing center, or home and documented the location where baby was born. 

What about birth photography?

Birth photography is absolutely beautiful and makes me cry every time (good tears, I promise!). Due to the unpredictable natural of birth photography and my current childcare limitations, I can't commit to being there for the actual birth. As such, Fresh 48 sessions allows us to get as close as possible and still capture all the newness of baby's arrival.
