I love the intimacy of Fresh Newborn Sessions. I get to witness many wonderful first moments like daddy changing a diaper for the first time or mommy breastfeeding her brand new blessing. I get to see older siblings meet their new baby and grandparents welcome their new grandchild too. Sometimes I even get to photograph the newborn baby's homecoming. Other times I simply capture the interaction between the new parents and their baby as they bond.
So, what exactly is a Fresh Newborn Session? It's a special session for families wanting to document their newborn baby's first moments without imposing on their sacred birth space. Think of it as a lifestyle session that takes place within 48 hours of baby's arrival and can be done in the hospital, at a birthing center or in your home during daylight hours.
Unlike my in-studio newborn sessions, there are no props involved. I encourage parents to dress baby and themselves in simple, neutral outfits to keep the Fresh theme throughout the session. My wonderful hair & makeup artists are available for mom at an additional cost to help ease the stress of getting ready for photos.
