Oh newborn babies! they are so tiny and cuddly, they just steal my heart. I never quite understood wanting the hospital photos, until I had my own. Even if their looks change drastically from those first days, I love documenting just the way they looked the first days of their lives. I have the moment my two sons met on camera. It will forever be my favorite photo. It has so much meaning to me. Young children change so drastically and siblings only get to meet once for the first time. Having these moments documented is important to us mommas!

I met this family when both our oldest were in daycare together. Neither of us are from Washington, so we have that special "I'm not from here" bond! I have been lucky enough to photograph them many times, as they have had several milestones to capture over the past couple of years. We have formed a great friendship through daycare and photography as well! Such a great feeling that my art has brought us together as friends. I strive to get to know all of the families I photograph so it is a natural feeling photoshoot.
I was so thrilled to be asked to come to the hospital and capture Cooper's newborn photos as well as big brother getting to meet his little brother for the first time. It was such a touching moment, I was fighting back tears myself. Looking back at these photos makes me want to run over there and snuggle him again.
When does it take place?
The fresh 48 session takes place within the first two days of a babies life. Typically in hospital or at home, wherever the baby was born. It is great to capture those little details of a newborn. First doctor checkup, first bath, first time meeting family members, little fingers, toes, feet, noses.
Will mom and dad be in the photos?
Yes, Yes, Yes! of course we want to get you holding and loving on your little one. You and your children will cherish these photos.
