What is a Fresh 48 session?
Have you heard the term fresh 48 from photographers or friends that were booking them and thought, what in the world is that?
A Fresh 48 session is a photography session that takes place within the first 48 hours of a new baby’s birth. Most of the times they happen in the hospital. It captures all those details of when your newborn enters the world. Baby’s change so fast, I cherish my fresh 48 photos from both of my son’s births. I love to go back and look at their brand new hair, my oldest had strawberry blonde hair and my youngest had dark brown hair. They are both blonde now!
What types of photos do you take during a fresh 48?
if the newborn isn’t a first child I love to get the siblings meeting for the first time. The emotion that shows in everyone’s face is incredible and I love documenting it. You may be thinking, well what if my oldest doesn’t like the new baby, are you going to capture that? I’ve seen some siblings take a little while to warm up to the idea that their momma is holding another baby, but at some point the older sibling always gets curious enough to come say hi and even give the new baby a kiss or a rub on the head.
I also like to get the little details, hands, feet, tiny ears, baby in basinet and swaddled in their hospital blankets, and their family just loving on them. It really is a special time that cannot be recreated. Why not get it on camera?!?
