A Freshly Born hospital session (also know as a Fresh 48 session) takes place in the hospital within 48 hours after baby's birth.


Imagine capturing those very first bonding moments and fresh first hours with your newborn. I can be there to discretely capture the emotions and first memories of your new little miracle, or the moment when siblings meet their new baby for the first time.


There is no posing or props, but simply a natural account of the little details that quickly are forgotten; baby in their hospital crib and bracelet, Daddy's first time bathing his new baby; as well as those cherished details like your baby’s first yawn, wrinkly little toes and fuzzy newborn hair.


A Freshly born hospital session does not replace the traditional newborn session which is usually captured around 10 days after baby’s birth. These are two very different sessions providing delightful keepsakes from two unique times in your baby’s life.

Freshly Born Sessions must be booked prior to your due date so I can keep space available on my newborn calendar due to the time sensitive nature of these sessions.


Additional digital images, Photobook albums and keepsake Wall Art collections are purchased separately after your session, once your gallery is ready.
