If you are pregnant, a new mama, an experienced mama, or maybe even just curious…let me school you on one of the newest trends – FRESH 48!
But first, let me give you some backstory on me and my photography journey. 3 years ago I shot my first home birth and was instantly addicted. There is just something about the birth process in itself that is amazing. I found myself with tears streaming down my face at being able to witness it firsthand, immediately I wanted to book more! As I researched and got ready to advertise my passion I hit a roadblock – my own pregnancy. Since being on-call at a birth could mean multiple hours and maybe even days I knew that this wasn’t going to be possible with a newborn who would most likely be EBF (exclusively breast fed).
2 years later I notice that some of my birth mentors are posting these Fresh 48 sessions. What are those? Immediately I start a search on Google and Pinterest and find a the perfect combination for my WAHM life + birth passion. These sessions occur at your home, birth center, or hospital and document the new-ness of a baby and a fresh family dynamic before you head home.
Ever feel frustrated that Uncle Tom didn’t take the best photos with his phone when the family came to visit? That’s my job! I’m there to help you relax and enjoy your little one so that later you can look at the photos and remember just how tiny they were. Postpartum passes by so so so quickly, in the blink of an eye and in the midst of 5 billion diaper changes you forget what your baby first looked like. You can’t recall how much hair they had on their shoulders or call to mind their peeling feet.
Consider me your own personal “fly on the wall”.
I’ve had a few moms tell me, “I wish I had known this was a thing for my last baby, it would have been perfect to see my whole family interacting.”
Don’t let that be you!
