Why is a fresh 48 session important?

When your new baby enters the world, it’s a remarkable experience, whether it’s your first child or your fifth. Those first moments of getting to know your little one are precious, but they’re also moments that pass incredibly quickly. In the haze of recovering from labor and delivery, you may miss out on some of your child’s firsts that you want to remember.

That’s where a Fresh 48 photo session can be a lifesaver. This intimate lifestyle session captures all the details of your baby’s first couple days in the world, right there in the hospital or in your home, resulting in images marking one of the most important days of your life.

What is a Fresh 48 session?

This photography session takes place within 48 hours of your child’s birth in the environment where they were born. Your photographer will capture the details of your baby, some of the first feedings and diaper changes, and even meeting older siblings for the first time. This session is designed to commemorate and capture those first moments of your newborn’s life—moments that are often forgotten once you return to the hustle and bustle of daily life at home.

Capture precious memories

Your life changes when your child is born, and while you may think you’ll remember every detail of those first few days, chances are you won’t. A Fresh 48 session allows you to hold on to those intimate first moments with your little one and your family. In the months and years to come, you’ll be grateful to have those photos to look back on and help you remember those tiny fingers and toes and how they changed your world.

Babies change quickly

If this is your first child, you may be surprised at how quickly they grow. By the time you have a newborn session a week or two after your child’s birth, they may look completely different from those days in the hospital. A Fresh 48 session is not designed to take the place of a newborn session but to supplement it and give you a better chance to capture more of your little one’s life.

This moment deserves to be captured

The day your child is born is one of the most important days in the life of your family, and you deserve to have quality, professional images of that day. Even if you intend to take photos yourself, you may forget or not feel up to it, or the images may not turn out the way you want. Hiring a professional photographer takes the guesswork out of capturing a moment that means so much to you.

This day is part of your story

Your family grew, and your whole world has changed! Whether these are your first moments as a parent or you’re celebrating adding another child to your life, those first couple days are magical and part of your family’s legacy. Your whole family should be in the photos, instead of one parent hiding behind the camera. You’re experiencing your new addition together for the first time, and that is a memory that you’ll want to cherish for the rest of your life.
