Those first few hours after your baby is born is a whirlwind!! Hormones are crazy, you're on an exhausted high, time flies. A First48 session is the perfect time to photograph these hours when your baby will be closest to the day she is born.
First48 photos will be of your baby sleeping on your chest, tiny fingers and toes, sweet wrinkles, diaper changes, breastfeeding, skin-to-skin, huge yawns and hiccups, belly button, ankle bracelets, and exhausted new parents. In just a week, your baby will change so much but these first images will help you always remember the first hours.
For this 60-min. session, I'm on-call to come to your birth location - home or hospital - within 48-hours after your baby arrives. It will give you a chance to catch your breath, eat, and maybe even get some rest! A First48 is more of a lifestyle session that includes a little guidance from me to get the photos in a small space that I know moms love. This session is the perfect time for siblings or grandparents to join.
Bringing Baby Home
The day comes when you leave the hospital and the comfort of knowing a nurse is there for every question and you go home and begin creating your new normal.
More firsts... the first time your tiny baby is in a huge crib or napping in the car seat that engulfs her. Siblings learning to be gentle and helping change a diaper. The brand new nursery that has been waiting for it's new occupant. Mom rocking and nursing while your 4-legged baby checks out this new addition. This first day home is a great time to have grandparents join at your home, but you might also choose to have this be a quiet hour with you and your spouse and baby alone. It's the first day of your changed life and worthy to document.
