Fresh 48 sessions are a unique type of newborn photography that happens within the first 48 hours of birth. I come to your home, hospital or birth center to capture those very first moments with brand new baby.

The Process


Let's chat

I understand how important it is to document those first precious moments with your new baby. That is why I offer a free consultation so we can get to know each other. I’ll send you all the necessary information for a successful session.

Your baby is finally here! Though your baby’s due date is in my calendar, I wait to officially book your Fresh 48 session until after they arrive. You will contact me with the exciting news and we will schedule your session within 2 days of baby’s arrival.


It's PICTURE time!

This is my favorite step when I get to capture your story. I will come to your birthing place (whether that’s at a hospital, birth center or home) and work my magic. All you need to focus on is snuggling, loving and enjoying your sweet baby. Fresh 48 Sessions typically last about an hour.


See your beautiful images

Within 2 days, I will share a sneak peek of a few favorite images. Within 2 weeks, I will deliver your online gallery where you can download your portraits directly to your computer.


Order your tangible heirlooms

Fresh 48 Pictures were meant for more than sitting in a computer folder. I believe that printing your pictures creates heirlooms that allow your family to cherish portraits for years to come. You can order products directly from your online gallery.



Fresh 48 Sessions are all inclusive at $400
