What is a Fresh 48 Session?
A Fresh 48 is a 1 hour documentary lifestyle session to take place within your babies first 48 hours of life. These lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever. It preserves the details of this speacial day and captures moments that will soon become a distant memory. Not only does baby change so much in those first few days, but the emotion between Mom and Dad and the two of them with their brand new baby in those early days is something truly special. I know many parents can be hesitant to do a Fresh48 session because Mom just gave birth and things can be pretty chaotic those first few days. Fresh48 sessions are pretty quick and meant to be more laid back and casual – perfect for capturing siblings meeting baby, baby by him/herself and parents with baby. sessions can take place in a hospital or birthing center and are perfect for capturing the newness and love for your baby. I will come to the hospital or birthing center of your choice. The session is shot in a candid, unposed style with absolutely no posing or props. It is for immediate family only.
What to expect
This is an extremely relaxed session. I want you to feel comfortable. I also tend to follow baby's lead. If baby is fussy or needs consoling - please nurse and/or console! I will work around you and baby.
Fresh 48 Session Wardrobe
Newborn clients will be photographed in hospital attire only as to not distract from documenting the true details of this time. Parents and siblings may wear what they are comfortable with. Nuetral clothing is best. Avoid pastels, bright colors, large prints or distracting patterns. Everyone should be in a cordinating color pallet so that the gallery is cohesive. If you need any help on what to wear you may text me and I can help give you some guidance on syling your session.
I photograph Fresh 48 sessions only in the following cities, Austin, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Georgetown, Hutto, Leander, Cedar Park, Bee Cave and Lakeway.
