What is a Fresh 48 Session?

Fresh 48 sessions are a wonderful way to capture those first few hours of your newborn's life without having the entire labor and birth documented. These sessions don't require you to pack up your newborn and travel to my studio and are guaranteed to tell a story! 

Fresh 48's are done on location at the place of your beautiful baby's birth. Usually held within 24-48 hours after birth, these sweet, candid shoots are perfect for remembering that special, yet fleeting, time forever. 

Please note:

This session is not meant to replace the Studio Newborn session.  There is no posing, no props, no sleeping baby (unless the baby is sleeping!). This package aims to capture life in those few moments straight after birth.

What happens during the session?

I will visit your home, birth center or hospital within 24-48 hours post birth (Central Vermont area). My focus will be on capturing the amazing details of your little one such as their sweet little face, a fresh fuzzy head, tiny toes and hands. I will also capture quiet moments between the new parents, such as feedings, diaper changes, bath time and of course will capture the entire family including siblings and grandparents.

As a mother of two myself, rest assured that I am comfortable in a "post-birth" environment and am keenly aware of the beautiful complexities that birth and postpartum bring. I promise to tread lightly! :-)

More info and FAQ -

Fresh 48 sessions require to me to be 'on call'. For this reason I will be booking limited numbers of these sessions. If you are pregnant and considering a Fresh 48 session, I suggest booking about 3 months in advance.
