Each new baby that joins your family is a once in a lifetime event. Pregnancy seems to last forever, but once it’s over, it will have flown by in a blink. This is your chance to document this cherished time, before the watery kicks and flips become singing along to the Frozen soundtrack and riding without training wheels.
It’s easy to get maternity photography wrong. Believe me, I know. The precious few images I have of my pregnancies are the opposite of flattering and glowing. I’m standing in the kitchen with overhead lighting, bags under my eyes, looking far more round in far too many places. That’s why hiring a professional is so important. I have the experience and the eye to guide you into flattering poses, to help document your round belly, but minimize things you’d prefer not to notice. Once your baby is here, pregnancy will seem like a distant, hazy memory. These images aren’t just for you, but also for your child, who will delight in seeing what mama’s belly looked like when they were growing inside. Fresh 48 is my term for a session to document your freshly earthside little one, usually with 48 hours of birth. We all take a million pictures with our phones and cameras after baby arrives, but very few of those images are frame-worthy. My goal is to capture your newly expanded family in a gentle, sweet way that shows the connection between you, captures the fleeting moment that is a new little one, and create images you’ll be proud to share with others. I’ll come visit you at the hospital (or your home if you had a birth center/home birth), often the morning after your delivery. The session takes 20-30 mn, and I love to capture your new baby alone, baby with each parent, and families together. While I’m there we’ll schedule your studio visit for your full newborn session.These are some of my favorite images to create, and it would be my honor to document this time for your family.A Fresh 48 session is included in all of my newborn sessions, from which you’ll receive the digital negatives as a gift. Maternity sessions can be added on to booked newborn sessions for $150, and that also includes the digital negatives. To read more about my newborn sessions, click here.
