. . . What To Expect . . .
Fresh 48 Session
Awaiting the arrival of your little one is full of preparations to welcome your baby into your world and planning a Fresh 48 Session is a great way to be prepared to capture the anticipated first hours with this little tiny human being.
Once your Fresh 48 Session is scheduled I will save your due date as a tentative session date. When your bundle arrives you will let me know and we will arrange where and when your session will take place, either at the place of birth or in your home.
I bring only my camera and photograph for up to an hour so you can expect a simple, candid session to capture the little details of you and your baby's first hours together. You may choose to include special family or friends, however, it is typically a quiet, intimate session. If you have older children it can be a very sweet time as they meet the newest family member and get to know him or her.
Your newborn session is best set for 3-12 days after birth as baby sleeps easiest during this point. If you choose to come to my home studio props and everything we need will be set and ready for your arrival. If you choose to have me in your home it will take me a short time to choose the best natural lighting and get set up.
For the session I will have props including bowls, boxes and baskets as well as a professional newborn beanbag. I also provide all the blankets, wraps and accessories needed. In order to keep your baby comfortable and sleepy I use a small space heater for a warm environment as well as a sound machine for soothing.
Aside from setting up the session will take anywhere from 1-4 hours. This allows for baby to feed when necessary and leaves room to help baby settle into a good sleep.
As long as your baby is happy I will work through a handful of poses and props to get a variety of images. Because the health and safety of your baby is my top priority we will work to get images that achieve this first and foremost.
