Charlottesville, Virginia Fresh 48 Photography Session
I love that I have photographed all three of these children as newborns. The two boys had traditional studio portraits for their newborn session but for baby Collins, we opted to do a sweet and simple fresh 48 hospital session.
I recently was able to start adding fresh 48 newborn sessions back into my client package selections. I love the response I have received about this option! Fresh 48 sessions are great for my clients who desire a more lifestyle, or documentary, approach to their photography sessions. This style of session are incredibly laid back, with little to no posing at all. With just some gentle direction and request. A fresh 48 is about capturing the emotion or feelings as they are in that exact moment of time. They last less than an hour and are really the most perfect session.
I love the joy that I am seeing when I present this gallery each time.
Are you having your own fresh 48 session? Here are a few ideas on what to pre pack for that session. Please leave ANY ideas or recommendations YOU have in the comment section below!
- swaddle blanket for baby. Soft colors.
- newborn hat and going home outfit
- simple white onesie
- hair bow if prefer them
- makeup for mom – i find that most moms LOVE taking a shower after your baby is born and a little lip gloss can make you feel like a whole new person
- clothes that will fit YOU. You will be smaller after your baby is born.
When to schedule your fresh 48?
I like to know 6-8 weeks in advance if my clients are booking a fresh 48. Its also super important to text your photographer when you are in labor so they can make sure they clear their schedule to come in to photograph within the next 2-3 days. I know I prefer mid day when the sun is high in the sky and no artificial lights are needed for the session.
