What is a Fresh 48 Session?
Fresh 48 photography is a special session with your newborn baby that takes place in the first 48 hours after they are born. I shoot Fresh 48’s as lifestyle session, which means I document those precious first hours together in a natural, candid way. Fresh 48 sessions offer an alternative to new families who want to capture that first day as a family without documenting the labour and birth.
I’ll capture all of those teeny tiny newborn details (fingers, toes, ears & more), along with those amazing first interactions between you and your new baby (and any other children you have too!) First cuddles, feedings, and quiet moments together are so very special and these photos will help you remember that day forever.
Fresh 48 sessions are done wherever you have given birth, whether that is at the hospital or at home, and I will come to you to you within the first 48 hours your wee one was born.
Why book a Fresh 48 Session?
Because those first special hours together deserve to be documented.
Babies change so quickly- especially at the start. The changes in them even day to day are so noticeable and it’s easy to forget those special first days as you watch your little one grow. (I especially know this to be true now that I’m a mum myself!) Fresh 48 sessions document all of those important firsts & tiny details that will soon be lost when you’re busy being parents. Having photos to remember those magical first hours together are invaluable and will undoubtedly be cherished for many years to come.
What’s the difference between a Fresh 48 Session and a Newborn Session?
Fresh 48 is a lifestyle photography session done in the hospital or your home. There will be no props or posing- just real moments and interactions documented naturally as they happen. Fresh 48 sessions are done in the first 48 hours of your baby’s birth.
Newborn photography sessions are usually done in studio (though I do offer in home newborn sessions too!) and though I take a very natural, minimalist approach to newborn photography there will still be some props and light posing. Newborn photography sessions can be done anytime within the first ten days of your baby being born.
Births are unpredictable, how do you know when to book us in?
I take a very limited number of Fresh 48 bookings per month for this very reason! We’ll have a window of about four weeks that your baby will likely to arrive in, and I’ll basically be “on call” and ready to come over to you on short notice during that timeframe. Fresh 48 sessions are done during daylight hours sometime within those first 48 hours and we can coordinate the best time for me to come once the baby has arrived.
How much will my Fresh 48 photography session cost?
Fresh 48 sessions are £250 for a digital only package, with the option to add on wall products, prints and fine art albums & photobooks if you wish (but there is no obligation to do so). There are no hidden charges or fees and printing rights to your digital images are also included in your package price.
