This blog is for all you expectant mom’s out there! I am sure in the midst of your busy lives of prepping and anticipating your sweet bundle of joy’s arrival, you have been searching for photography. Whether that be maternity or newborn, I would bet that scheduling a photography session has crossed your mind. What if I told you about a session that many people don’t really understand, or even know much about; such as the Fresh 48.
Your first question may be, “What is a Fresh 48?” Well, it is simply that! This is a session dedicated to capturing all the beauty and newness of your family’s newest addition just hours after they are born! It usually takes place within the first 24-48 hours after you deliver. This time-frame allows for you to get some much needed rest and spend those first few hours bonding with your newborn. This session is a very intimate and emotive time, not to mention a very sleepless time for us moms, which is a great reason why you need to book a Fresh 48 photography session. My goal for your Fresh 48 session is to help you remember all those new moments as a new family. The first moments of holding your new baby, smelling their sweet baby smell, the beauty of feeding your baby whether that be by nursing or bottle feeding, the redness of their skin, the wrinkles in their feet, their little hands, changing a diaper of a bottom that’s smaller than your palm. All of these things are so new and beautiful and so worth documenting so that you can remember these days long after you leave the hospital. So, as a mom, I encourage you to book a Fresh 48 session so that you can remember these amazing first moments and memories forever!
