Birth photography was something I never had on my radar, but it’s an opportunity that came my way and I’ve been SO thankful for it! Being in the delivery room or the operating room when a new baby comes into the world is simply this… it’s a chance for me to be a part of witnessing a miracle while capturing those memories in photos for a precious baby’s parents.
But, I also realize that a delivery room is a very vulnerable place and some women prefer to keep that time close to their hearts and not have photos of it. And that is perfectly ok! Birth photography isn’t for everyone.
So, for those sweet mamas who would still like photos of their brand new babes (and would like to guarantee that we get them during daylight hours!), I’m now offering Fresh 48 sessions!
So what are Fresh 48 Sessions?
- It’s a time within the 48 hours of the baby’s birth and before you leave the hospital or birthing center.
- Just like the birth stories, I would be on call two weeks before and two weeks after your due date. You would then let me know when you’re in labor and headed to the hospital or birthing center.
- Once the baby is born, as you’re notifying family and friends of your little one’s arrival, you would let me know too! Then, we’d set up a time for when you’d like me to come for your 1 hour photo session.
- Even though you may want everyone there for photos (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.), this is a chance to get photos of you and your sweet new baby and your husband. If grandparents are there when I arrive or potentially on their way, I’m more than happy to get a few photos of them too, but the majority of our time will be for the three of you (and older siblings too!)!

Jillian and Derek were so wonderful to welcome me into their hospital room about 36 hours after their precious Isaac was born. After photographing their wedding last year, I was so excited to congratulate them as new parents! Derek was actually out when I got there (only because his wife insisted he go home to rest for a bit because he did NOT want to leave her side!!), but Jillian’s mom and one of her sisters were there and about to head out when I arrived.
It was such a joy to spend some time with Jillian and her new baby boy. Not to mention getting a chance to snuggle a new tiny baby!! It only made me more excited for February and our baby girl’s arrival :-)
