What is a Fresh 48 Photography Session?

A Fresh 48 photography session is a documentary-style photo shoot that takes place within the first two days of your baby’s life. Typically, these sessions happen right in the hospital or birthing center. Unlike traditional newborn sessions, these sessions focus on capturing the raw and genuine moments that occur during this incredibly special time.

The Importance of a Fresh 48 Session

  • Authenticity and Raw Emotion: Fresh 48 sessions are all about authenticity. In these early moments, emotions are raw, and the love and connection between family members are intense. These sessions provide an opportunity to capture genuine reactions, tender moments, and the unfiltered love that surrounds the arrival of your newborn!
  • Fleeting Moments: The first 48 hours are a whirlwind of emotions, introductions, and firsts. From the first time siblings meet the new baby.. To the quiet, tender moments between parents and their newborn, these moments are fleeting and cannot be replicated. Trust me, as a mama who didn’t get to experience a Fresh 48 (hello 2020), I deeply wish I had more memories of this moment with my daughter. Fresh 48 sessions freeze these moments in time, allowing you to relive them for years to come. Think of them as a special family keepsake.
  • Documenting New Beginnings: Your family undergoes a significant transformation with the arrival of a new member. Fresh 48 sessions beautifully document the beginning of this new adventure you are on. They provide a visual narrative of the first moments of your baby’s life and the joy that comes with it.
  • Commemorating Details: From tiny fingers and toes to the soft wisps of hair, Fresh 48 sessions capture the tiny details that change so rapidly in the first few days of life. These details are a testament to the unique beauty of your newborn and create timeless memories that you’ll cherish forever.

How to Prepare for Your Fresh 48 Session

  • Keep It Natural: Fresh 48 sessions thrive on natural moments and emotions. Keep clothing and props minimal, don’t overthink it! Allow the focus to remain on the genuine interactions between family members and your fresh little one. I typically recommend a knotted gown for baby, it makes sneaking in the tiny details of hands and feet easy to capture.
  • Coordinate with Hospital Staff: Before the session, check with your hospital or birthing center to understand their policies regarding photography. Some facilities may have guidelines or restrictions, so it’s essential to communicate with the staff and your photographer to ensure a smooth session.
  • Prioritize Comfort: Choose clothing that is comfortable and easy to change in and out of, as Fresh 48 sessions often capture the intimate moments of your family in a relaxed setting! For you mama, you seriously can never go wrong with a simply pair of comfy pajamas!

Fresh 48 photography sessions are a beautiful and meaningful way to capture the first moments of your baby’s life. From the genuine emotions to the tiny details, these sessions provide a timeless record of this extraordinary time. I am absolutely honored to be a part of preserving these special memories for you and your family.
