This session a Fresh 48. The reason I call it that is that most new parents and baby are in the hospital typically for a maximum of 48 hours. This session is usually 45 minutes long give or take depending on nurses and nursing 😉 It is so exciting to capture the welcoming of a new baby into a family when life is in transition and no one will every remember those fleeting moments unless they are captured. The session usually takes place on the second day so that Mama has a chance to rest her eyes for a few hours and maybe put on a touch of makeup if desired.
Sometimes siblings or grandparents are there to join in the session; other times it is all about Mom, Dad, and baby. The session is relaxed and natural. I like to use the hospital swaddle as it tells apart of the story. The identification bracelets are not hidden. In fact, those bracelets are what you will probably keep for a baby book one day along with these pictures.
If you are interested in a Fresh 48 contact me so we can talk through some details about your specific session. I also have a few tips I like to give Mamas that help you feel a little put together in those first 48 hours after delivery.
