Fresh 48 Session

You knew since finding out that you were expecting that something special was about to happen.  Now that special day is here and your littlest bundle of love has arrived.  The short stay in the hospital can feel like spending time inside a bubble.  It's just your family unit tucked away from the outside world.  This is the perfect time to preserve this feeling and your child's newness before heading back home.

"Simple Fresh Newborn"

Planned within the 2 week timeframe.  We would find the room with the best natural light together in your home and take the photos in there.  It's about a 20 to 30 minute session like it would be at a hospital for a Fresh 48; photos will include family, mom/baby,  dad/baby as well as some of the baby alone.  Short and sweet.  We can also plan to meet somewhere like a local greenhouse if available.
