Something new for me- Fresh 48 Photography

A little while ago I did a model call for people who were expecting babies in the near future. I wanted to give Fresh 48 sessions a go, something that I hadn’t done before.

Fresh 48 is a session that takes place within 48 hours (ideally) of your baby’s birth, normally at the hospital. It allows for a simple, relaxed session to document this precious time. Those tiny finger and toes, cuddles with Mummy, tender moments with Daddy, and even meeting siblings for the first time.

I was so excited when I got my first message to say one of the couples baby girl had arrived. I am 5 minutes away from my local hospital, St Peter’s Hospital, in Chertsey so I was there in a flash.

I just took natural shots of the couple and of their new baby daughter. These are the moments you will want to remember and the tiny, newborn days don’t last for long.

I kept the session as brief as I could as I didn’t want to take up too much of their time. I remember those first few days are so exhausting and overwhelming plus a constant stream of visitors and midwives.

I love these images and the family will definitely cherish them. I can’t wait for the next message to say a baby has arrived! I think it makes it even more special that these photos are done on the ward where I had my own babies, such wonderful memories.

What do you think? Would you consider a Fresh 48 session?
