I aim for my sessions to be fun and pain free...we all know most dads dread picture day LOL.
There will be lots of laughter, BIG hugs, funny jokes, tickles, kisses, a few games, more laughing, and some snuggles.
I will direct you (and your kiddos) to interact with each other and then I will step back
and wait for those special smiles, looks of love and lots of giggles.
I want you all to be as natural as possible and pretend that my camera
and I are not even there...this is when I get THE best shots :)
Fresh 48 photography is a special session for those families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life documented. I aim to capture the sweet newness of your baby and the precious moments that we often forget.
All those little firsts and tiny details - first feedings, diaper changes, chubby cheeks, the first bath, meeting siblings for the first time, first yawns, tiny toes, cute wrinkly baby feet, holding hands, peach fuzz hair, all of those fleeting moments which are unforgettable but pass in the blink of an eye.
Held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby’s life, these lifestyle/documentary sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever.
It is not a traditional newborn session; I will not pose the baby or bring props or lights. This will just be me capturing your baby’s sweet new moments in a fresh natural way!
**Due to the on call nature of these sessions, I only do a limited number of Fresh 48 sessions a month! Booking early is key to guaranteeing you a spot!!

I love to photograph newborns. Maybe it's because I am a mom myself or because I get a sneak peek of the joy that you feel for this tiny, perfect human being. These sessions make my heart so happy!
There is no better place to create precious memories than a home filled with the love and excitement of a brand new baby. These sessions are very relaxed and baby led. They are typically two hours but depending on the baby can be longer. I only use natural light and I usually photograph in the master bedroom , nursery and living area. The focus will be on a more lifestyle/documentary approach (rocking baby, feeding, snuggling on the couch) instead of the typical posed shots of baby in a taco pose. In my experience, these precious, real moments between you and your brand new baby are the memories you'll truly cherish later.
Newborn sessions are best photographed in the first 2 weeks of life; however can be done up to one month.
Contact me before the baby arrives to book a session. The earlier the better.
I would love to have the opportunity to capture these special memories for you. Years from now you'll be able to look at these photos and be reminded of the sweetness of your newborn baby. It's a story that will be treasured for a lifetime.
These sessions take place in the comfort of your own home (typically from1 week to 4 weeks

As a Mother myself, I understand that the days can feel chaotic at times, and it’s easy to get lost in the to-do lists and schedules. My goal for every family session is to capture the true essence of your family as you are "right" now as this season will never exist again. I want you to see how truly amazing your life really is and help you document those everyday, fleeting moments.
The messy, imperfect, emotional moments are the ones that portray the beauty of your life. So, embrace the crazy because it gives meaning to the amazing, beautiful moments in-between.
Those are the images that I love to capture, the in-between moments (interaction, love and emotions) as they tell your story. The story that will be the forever reminder of that time in your life.
the session takes place in-home or on location (mutually decided)
