Why a Fresh 48 session? | Hospital newborn sessions
What is a Fresh 48 session?
A Fresh 48 session is the documentation of the first 24-48 hours after birth. Sweet little babes change so quickly. Birth can be a blur, so it’s wonderful to have photo documentation of one of the most monumental moments in your life- bringing a little soul Earthside. These sessions are not posed, intimate, and raw. I want to capture your beautiful postpartum body. I want to capture the tiny toes, the learning how to nurse, the first time taking a bottle, herbal baths, skin to skin, Mama gazing into those precious new eyes. I want to capture the tiny details of those first hours.
I will bring along some muslin blankets and use the hospital provided blankets or any blanket provided by the midwife/birth center. I suggest a robe/kimono for mom, but it’s not required. I will capture life as it really looks- nipple shields, SNS feeding, bottle feeding, mesh underwear (I wore Depends after I delivered!) and your beautiful postpartum body that just carried that perfect little baby.
These sessions are on call, so I only book a few a month! Book your session early to secure your spot.
