What is a "Fresh 48" Session?

Although I’ve personally never had a child, I have heard from many mothers how fast time goes by, especially after the baby is born. This session is called a “Fresh 48” because this session is done within the first 48 hours of the baby being born. This is a great alternative to birth photography which is where a photographer comes in to document the birth of the baby. For those bothered by or uncomfortable with the intimate nature of birth photography, this is a great alternative.

This session can be done in the hospital or at home, depending on where you’re located at the time. During this session we’ll capture the special moments and details you’ll want to remember forever. Baby toes, baby fingers, baby smiles. Their big yawn or snuggles in Mom and Dad’s arms.

This session usually lasts between 1-2 hours which might sound like a long time to some but this allows for the session not to be rushed. Mothers are moving slowly at this time and the baby might need to be fed, changed or calmed. If you are thinking about this type of session, reach out to me to discuss more details

Thank you to Jessica and Devin for letting me share Sawyer’s Fresh 48!

Jessica's Maternity Session

Maternity sessions are always beautiful but this maternity session was extra special and filled with joy!

Austin Eric Roy was born prematurely at just 26 weeks gestation to my cousin Jessica. After a valiant 7 ½ month fight in multiple ICU’s, Austin lost his battle and became an angel. Jessica didn’t think she could have another child, but after many years, she now has her rainbow baby.

I am so happy for Jessica and Devin; she is one radiant Mama! I can’t wait for you to meet your little boy!



This session was to not only celebrate her miracle pregnancy with Sawyer, but also to honor Sawyer’s older brother, Austin.
