I know I’ve said it before, but fresh 48s have my heart. They truly are some of my favorite sessions to shoot. There is something so unique about these sessions that you just can’t capture at any other point. There are emotions and an overall feeling that is palpable in the room, I hardly have to guide clients.
I had the honor of photographing the insanely talented Ashley of A Family Affair Photography and her new family of 6! I don’t even know where to begin to explain what a honor this was for me. You see about 3.5 years ago, I had NO idea what I was doing with my camera and honestly had little interest in photography
I think by now everyone knows my passion for shooting fresh 48s. They are hands down my favorite sessions. There is something about those first few days that you just can’t capture during an in-home newborn session. I also think those are the moments and feelings that are hard to remember as a parent, especially a first time parent. It is such a whirlwind of emotion squeezed into a short period of time that you feel sort of high yet so exhausted at the same time. I personally have never had a fresh 48 for any of my own babies and now that I shoot them, I deeply regret it.
I know I have said before but I will say it again, Fresh 48s are hands down my favorite sessions! The emotions that are present in these sessions are so raw and real. As a new mom, you try to memorize every little detail of your new baby while fighting the pain and sleep deprivation that comes those first few days after delivery. I try to capture all those little details about a newborn that you want remember but that often change so quickly!
I started 2018 off with this 1 day old in hospital session! Fresh 48s are one of my favorite sessions to shoot, especially when it is first time parents. There is something so special and raw about those first days in the hospital that you can’t get in a newborn session.
