A fresh 48 session is a photo session done in the first 48 hours after birth.
It’s a time which can be overwhelming for so many, because you’re either getting used to being a parent for the first time, or you’re getting used to having a second or third child. Everything is just going by in a haze and you’re there but also not really…
It’s a moment in time that goes by too quickly. You forget the sacred first moments, the emotions, the feeling of having this beautiful new life in your care, the tiny first moments of your child on this earth.
That’s why photos during this time can be so special, but you might only realise this months down the line when you can look back on these memories.
The fresh 48 session is done with a documentary style and it’s either done at home if you had a home birth, is already home from the hospital or done in the hospital while you’re still there.
This session was done at home, mama Ronique had baby Kelsey at home. It was a quick session of about 45 minutes just to capture those tiny firsts.
It’s short for a reason, because you don’t want someone there for too long, but you’ll love the photos years down the line.
