Fresh 48 sessions are quickly becoming some of my favorite sessions to photograph and I was so excited to start officially offering these sessions this year! I put out a model call for a family who would be open to me taking their photos in the hospital and include them in my portfolio. That's how I got to meet Baby Zara and her sweet family! I wanted to be able to add photos in my portfolio for Fresh 48 sessions including older siblings. These sessions are so much fun for so many reasons, but my favorite is because it's a chance I have to capture real, raw, lifestyle images at a time that is so fresh for a growing family. For any parent, we know how it feels be to be handed this fresh little baby and feel that overwhelming emotion and immediate love for this new member of your family. We go through so many emotions and experiences after giving birth, which become a blur as time goes on. That is why I wanted to be able to start offering these Fresh 48 sessions. They're meant to be taken between 24-48 hours after giving birth, before the family is discharged from the hospital. These are also minimally posed, lifestyle photos....siblings meeting baby for the first time, first bath, snuggling together on the hospital bed, and capturing those little details of a fresh new baby!
When I met Zara's family, big sister was a little shy at first but once she warmed up to the camera, she became the most expressive little girl! She loved looking at her baby sister in the bassinet and interacted with baby from the comfort of her parent's arms. It was so wonderful to photograph the Steven's family as they welcomed their newest daughter into their family and I am very grateful for the chance to include them in my Fresh 48 portfolio!
