What is a Fresh 48 session?
Fresh 48 is a lifestyle session done within 2 days of baby's birth and done either in the hospital or at your home. They are casual and unposed and focus on baby's brand new features - hair, feet, hands. We also focus on the relationships between baby and the family.

When should I book and when should I schedule my newborn session?
Ideally, you'll book your newborn session while still pregnant. Once you put down a deposit, I make a note of your due date and just wait for you to call me once the baby is born. We always have availability for last minute newborn sessions, so contact me even if your baby is already born!
Newborn sessions are typically done between 7-10 days old, up to 2 weeks. If babies are born prematurely, they can often be a little older. Don't let this scare you away - we've done newborn photos with babies up to 2 months old. After that, we would recommend booking a milestone session. Parents and siblings are welcome at no extra charge. Below are some of my favorite images or you can see my recent work here. Check out our starting prices here or contact me for more detailed information.

When should I schedule our milestone session and what should my baby wear?
Milestone sessions should be booked not necessarily by age, but by milestones. Typically, parents do 4-8-12 months or 3-6-12 months but my suggestion is to do the first session when baby is smiling and holding their head up when on their tummy. The next session should be once baby is sitting up well. And the last would of course be the one year session with or without a cake smash. Milestone sessions can also be done yearly. Simple clothing is best for these sessions. For babies, I recommend soft, solid colored one piece outfits, classic heirloom clothing, diaper covers or anything else you really love and isn't that difficult to put on or take off. Siblings and/or parents are welcome to take one photo with the child. Look at some of my favorite looks and sessions below or check out the recent work on my blog. Our Grow with Me package includes 3 milestone sessions in addition to the newborn session. For more information on those packages, check out the pricing.
