A Fresh 48 Newborn photo session is typically shot within 12-48 hours of a baby’s birth. But it can be so much more than a simple documentation of a baby’s first day in the hospital. It gives you the opportunity to document the beauty of what can be a whirlwind in the hospital when you might be too sleepy and overwhelmed to remember it all.
After Baby is born
After baby has arrived safely on earthside, have your partner (or yourself if you're feeling up to it) contact me to let me know that baby has arrived.
I will then negotiate a time when mum and bub are feeling up to it to pop up to the Maternity Ward (or your home) during the day for our session.
If you would like to document the reactions of siblings meeting your baby for the first time, make sure to me know so I can fit you in as soon as possible and be in the room before your other children enter.
Preparing for your session
There is very little preparation involved! Just be as comfortable as possible. You might like to give baby a feed before the session so they are calm and settled. If you have a special wrap you would like to use for the session, you can swaddle baby in that prior to our session or have it ready to go if you as photos of you carefully wrapping your baby are always gorgeous. I also have a small selection of beautiful wraps I can bring along.
