What is a Fresh 48 session?

A Fresh 48 session is simply a session done within the first 48 hours of your new baby’s life.

These sessions are perfect for those who want to capture baby’s first hours of life without recording the entire labor and birth story.

It is a more documentary style photo shoot, usually done in the hospital if that’s where your baby was born.

This type of session does not replace a standard newborn session. Baby will not be posed or use props at all. It’s just me capturing your baby’s birth in a casual, natural way.

The majority of photos from your Fresh 48 session will be in black and white. This is because the hospital lighting is not the best, and also because the black and whites are usually more emotive. Black and white lends itself to more emotion and this is a great time to showcase the emotions of the day.

Capture and preserve the formation of your new family with a Fresh 48. If you already have children, this is a great time to get photos of them meeting their new brother or sister.

You just need to let me know as soon as you go into labor so I can prepare. Contact me when you have your baby. (hooray!) I will come to the place of birth within 24-48 hours to record this incredible occasion.
