There really is nothing so awe-inspiring and miraculous as having a baby. The mere thought of creating a new little life and bringing them into this world just blows me away. You’ve carried your sweet baby for months, trying to grasp at what it will be like to have them on the outside. And then the day comes, but seriously nothing can prepare you for it. You’ve just given birth to your baby, and you feel EVERYTHING for them. Your heart explodes with love, and it’s hard to wrap your mind around the shift your entire world just made as a result of this baby’s entrance. Honestly, as sleep deprivation sets in, it’s hard to wrap your mind around anything. A few hours after I gave birth to my son, I asked my husband to put the iPhone down, get my nice camera out of the bag, and take a picture of my son and me together. That picture is still on display in my house. I don’t have great memories of what happened before or after that moment – it’s a bit of a blur now, but that moment is captured in time. And I love it. Nothing can compete with the joy and wonder of those first 48 hours with your newest family member. And that’s precisely what a Fresh48 session is for.
As the name entails, Fresh48 sessions are done within the first 48 hours of your baby’s life. What makes these sessions unique from just a typical newborn session is that they are done in the setting in which you gave birth, whether that’s a hospital, birthing center, or at home. Fresh48 sessions are perfect for those families that want to capture their baby in his or her earliest hours, but the idea of photographing the actual birth is just a bit too much 😉 Don’t worry about perfect hair and makeup, Fresh48 is about the miracle and feat of childbirth!
