Have you ever heard of a Fresh 48 session? Fresh 48 photography is about capturing newborn babies and family members within the first 48 hours after birth. That special time can be such a blur for the parents, so this session helps to preserve those precious memories exactly the way they happened.
It's not like the posed newborn photos you see with backdrops, fancy wraps, and dress-up accessories. I do some of that, too, and I enjoy that, but I've been interested in doing something more natural looking with newborns.
Fresh 48 is just that: It's very candid, (mostly) unposed, and natural looking, much the way that birth photography is, but without all the intense images from labor and delivery. Birth photography and Fresh 48 have both been on my to-do list for a while now and I finally had an opportunity to dip my toes into this style...and, well, I loved it and can't wait to do some more of it.
Check out some of my favorite images I got from this session with this sweet little girl. She was born a day ahead of her mom's scheduled C-section because she was just too excited to meet her loving family. What a beauty!!
