Often people ask me, “why book a Fresh48 session when we are doing to do a newborn session a week later?” This is a great question and one that I LOVE having the opportunity to answer!
If you’ve had a baby there are a few things you likely know. The few short days following birth are an absolute blur. You’re learning all about the precious new life you created. Their wrinkles and dimples and birthmarks and the way they suck on their chubby little fingers. The position they like to eat in, the grunts they make that can only mean a dirty diaper and how snuggled up on daddy’s chest is already a favorite place to be. That new little life changes so much in the first few days and will never again look as fresh and new.
You may also remember how tiring those days in the hospital are. Nurses and doctors checking in, lactation consultants offering support and visitors excited to meet your bundle! At times the only thing you want to do is sleep.
You packed your camera for the hospital with the best of intentions to document all of those first couple days so you never forget, but the camera never leaves the bag. You took photos with your cell phone but wish you had more. I know. I’ve been there. And goodness do I wish I had hired someone to come in for an hour to capture this fleeting time.
This scenario is the heartbeat of why Fresh48 sessions are my absolute favorite! I have the opportunity to freeze in time the moments that I wish I had captured of my own. Those first stretches and wiggles and wrinkles that change so quickly. I get to document the time when big sister meets little brother for the first time so that you can be present, soaking in this precious moment you’ve imagined for 9 months. It is the greatest honor and jOy to be a part of this special time in the lives of many families!
Here is a little taste of what I like to capture during a Fresh48 session. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, Baby E to the world!
