So you've heard the term "Fresh 48" - but what is it?
Baby Kai, here, is going to help me with a little show and tell session, today.
(Everybody say hi, Kai!)
A Fresh 48 session is a session I perform at the hospital, within the first 48 hours of your baby's birth. We document every little moment from skin-to-skin time with mom and baby, to meeting dad, all the way through siblings and family meeting the new little price or princess for the first time. I love photographing this time, because there are so many wonderful, meaningful moments packed into these first few days. These sessions are for couples who want beautiful images of the first few hours of their baby's life, but may not opt for a full birth session.
Check out a few of my favorite images from Kai's Fresh 48!
Sharing nursing images online is completely at the family's discretion - but I'm so glad that mom Leigha wanted these beautiful images shown! Mom and baby do some magical bonding during this time.
It's okay, Dad. No one really knows how to swaddle at first. ;)
I live for this look on new dads' faces when they *finally* get to hold their baby for the first time!
Moments like this get me every time. I love dad being so gentle in touching Kai's soft little nose. <3
The moments in which babies look for their mom when hearing their voice are among the most magical of those first 48 hours!
Checking out the hair sitch!
The first of many pacifier applications, I'm sure!
Documenting the little things that make your baby unique is so important - they're going to do such funny little things, and you won't really remember so many of them!
Those moments of connection are always there - if you know how to look for them!
I just love this image!
Meeting the Nana that's going to spoil him rotten - they'll always have these photos of their first opportunity to plot together!
