There is something so sweet and intimate about welcoming a baby into your family. A Fresh 48 session is a beautiful way to capture these special moments. Those tiny little feet, hands that can’t yet wrap around your finger and cheeks that you can just kiss kiss kiss. That sweet new baby smell that you wish you could bottle up and savor forever! You can be sure your life will never be the same. These moments go by so fast and it’s such an honor for me to capture this milestone for you and your family to remember forever.
If you are already a parent you know how fast these moments pass by. In the blink of an eye they are running around. You want to keep them small and just sit and smell their sweet selves, you want to cuddle that sweet baby forever. I am so glad that I can be there for you in the beginning to capture those little feet, hands, and beautiful tiny eyelashes in professional photographs that you will cherish for a lifetime.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Once your little one arrives, let me know with a call or text and we will set up their first photo session. Fresh 48 pictures are done in the hospital, birthing center, or your home (if home birth) within the first two days of life. Newborn sessions are done within the first 2 weeks of life, 7-10 days is best as baby is still sleepy. Newborn sessions are done in lifestyle format, my goal is to capture you and baby in your home just as you are.
PREPARING OLDER SIBLINGS
If you have older children and would like them to be a part of the big day, preparing them for the session as much as possible is super helpful. Make sure you let them know that Miss Ashley is so excited to meet them as much as they are excited to meet their new best friend/friends. I want to get your family in your natural setting, meaning I want to capture you loving on the new baby and just sitting and talking. As a photojournalist my goal is to capture moments that are not scripted. If you want posed images I can totally help you with that, but my main focus is to get you just being a new family and not trying to make you feel awkward.
If you would rather just have images of your new little bundle that is totally fine. We can make it work however you wish.
