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 first few hours closest to the day your baby arrives.
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.
Baby sleeping on your chest, fingers and toes, wrinkles and chunky legs, diaper changes, breastfeeding, 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.
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. I will join you at your home the day you leave the hospital (or as soon as you are ready). You'll get those precious photos of your baby's first few days but with the bonus of being in the comfort of your home and baby's nursery.
More firsts... your tiny baby in a huge crib, napping in a 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. Your 4-legged baby checking out this new addition. This first day home is a great time to have grandparents visit but you might choose to have a quiet hour with baby alone. It's the first day of your changed life and worthy to document.
