what is a fresh 48 session?

Fresh 48 sessions, also known as hospital photography sessions are a great alternative to birth photography.  These sessions are named Fresh 48's because they take place during the first 48 hours after your baby's birth. These are my favorite sessions because they allow me to capture and preserve those first few days of your newborn baby's life. It's so important to capture them at this stage because newborns grow and change so much during that first few days. Many of my clients choose fresh 48 sessions because it gives parents the opportunity to rest and get photo ready after a sometimes long and exhausting labor and delivery.

I  photograph fresh 48 sessions in birthing facility throughout the St Louis and surrounding areas. Including hospitals, birthing centers, or in your home, if you chose a home birth. 

My approach to Fresh 48 sessions, is lifestyle focused. Meaning that I give direction and guidance to a point, such as positioning you in the best light, asking you to look at each other, look at your baby, etc. However, I am mostly creating a space and opportunity for connections to happen naturally.  I aim to capture little details like baby feet, hands, first yawns, tiny finger nails, belly buttons, baby snuggled up in the hospital bassinet, baby snuggles with mom and dad, first feedings, dad's first diaper changes, going home from the hospital, baby's first bath, etc. We can even try our best to time the session to document siblings meeting baby for the first time!
