What is Birth & Fresh 48 Photography?

Birth Photography is capturing your baby coming into the world while blending into the background. As your birth photographer, I will be like a fly on the wall capturing your labor and birth as it unfolds without being intrusive. Your birth photography can be whatever you want it to be. Birth photography is about capturing memories and that does not mean that you have to capture the “crowning” of the baby, unless you want to. It is important for me to show the connection between mom and her support staff as well as the emotion of meeting this new person for the first time.  

Fresh 48 Sessions are a great option for families who want to capture the first few hours of their newborn's life but may not want the entire labor or birth documented.  This session is held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby's life.  I will join you during your hospital stay to document your new baby in a relaxed and natural way for you to remember his first day forever.

Why Birth Photography?

Hiring a birth photographer will free up your support people and ensures you to get those important moments captured. Birth and labor are very unpredictable and therefore these are not typical portrait sessions. During labor there is a lot going on and she misses a lot of the moments that are happening around her. The looks of love and concern from dad, hands on her belly and making her laugh when the contractions get tough and most important – the expression on her face and dad’s face when they see their child for the first time. These moments are the most cherished and should be captured for a lifetime.
