Fresh 48 photography is a special session for those new families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured without having the entire labor or birth photographed.  Held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby’s life, these sessions are perfect for remembering all the precious moments forever.  As you and your family ooh and ahh over your little bundle of joy that is now a part of your family, I will be there to capture all the little details… the light, airy glow that is filling your room, shots of your little one’s first yawns, cute little baby feet, wrinkles, flaky skin, the tiny hat and hospital blanket, hospital bracelets – all of it.  I’ll also capture those quiet moments and and cuddle time between you and your new little family member.

It’s important to note that a Fresh 48 Session is not meant to take the place of a traditional newborn session (although they can be combined). I will not pose the baby or bring props or lights. And while possibly only days apart, your newborn baby will barely even look the same by the time you have your newborn portraits captured (typically held within 7-14 days of life).  This session will just be me capturing your baby’s sweet new moments in a fresh natural way!


Your baby will be changing so fast – hour to hour, day to day.  Capture those first milestones that will soon be lost in the fog of your “babymoon”:  tiny footprints, breastfeeding, meeting siblings or grandparents and new family members, or simply just gazing in awe at your new little miracle.   These are the photos your friends and family will be begging for and your parents will want displayed on the mantle.


•The Fresh 48 session takes place when you call, during daylight hours, within the first 48 hours of birth.  I like to be there as quickly after the birth as possible, so the sooner the better!

•It can take place at the hospital, birth center or at your home and will last approximately 60-90 minutes.

•Photography is similar in style to my Lifestyle photography – unposed, natural or available light, a mix of black and white and soft color images.

•Includes a minimum of 35 digital images for download with a same-day (or next day if your session is late in the day) Facebook sneak peek for you to share with friends and family.


This package is not meant to replace the traditional newborn package (but I can combine both at a discounted rate)!  There is no posing, no props, no sleeping baby (unless the baby is sleeping!). This package aims to capture life in those few moments straight after birth.



Due to the on call nature of these sessions, I only do a limited number of Fresh 48 sessions a month! Booking early is key to guaranteeing you a spot!!
