Fresh 48 sessions are ultimately one of my favorite moments to capture. These moments are so precious.
The session is held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby's life. These lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever. Images of your little one's first yawns, cute little feet, fingers, and the belly button will be beautifully documented. The first feeding, diaper changes, all of those amazing family meetings.
With a heavy heart, I will be missing the opportunity to document these first moments for a few moms that are having their babies in the upcoming weeks.
Our local hospital in North Central West Virginia has implemented a no-visitor policy in an effort to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Limited exceptions OB patients (women in labor) will be limited to one visitor.
Moms, I still want you to have these moments captured. I will guide you via video chat so you can still have these very first moments captured, even if you take them from your phone.
5 tips to take your Fresh 48 newborn pictures at the hospital or birth center:
Turn off the lights: let’s be real hospital light is not pretty. Embrace that natural light.
Open all the windows: let that beautiful light in the room.
Get rid of distractions: most room hospitals are small. Even if you have to put most of your belongings in one corner, try to avoid having clutter in the picture.
Keep it simple: Wrap your baby with your favorite blanket, better yet, keep it traditional and wrap your baby in the hospital blanket.
Move the bassinet near a window but don’t let the sun be on your baby’s face.
It won’t be the same as having a professional photographer capture these moments and details of your newborn baby however you will still have something to look back. This time period is such a blur. Parents, make sure you get in the picture!
