The first few hours after you’ve met your baby for the first time are simply magical.  Their first breaths, their first feeding, the first cuddles with mommy & daddy, the first time they meet their excited big brother or sister.  These moments are so fleeting, and they are such an important part of your family’s story that deserves to be captured.

Fresh 48 sessions aim to do just that.  To capture your baby’s firsts right there in the comfort of your hospital room as you welcome new life to your family.  After you have settled into your postpartum room, these sessions take place in the daylight hours before you are discharged from the hospital.  They are a natural and unposed peek into life with your young family and the breathtaking bond that forms in those first hours after the baby’s arrival.  Siblings and grandparents are encouraged to visit, in addition to our calm and more intimate bonding moments of the parents with the new baby.  

Sessions are about 1 hour long, and they include more than 50 emotion-filled images that truly tell your family’s story.  Fresh 48 sessions are not meant to replace the traditional newborn session; rather, they are another way to document one of the most important moments in your life and celebrate your baby’s arrival through powerful images.

Due to the on-call nature of Fresh 48 sessions, I can only accept two sessions per month.  Be sure to contact me during your second trimester to reserve a spot on my calendar before your baby’s arrival. 

We currently accept Fresh 48 sessions at Saratoga Hospital, Glens Falls Hospital, Bellevue, St. Peter’s Hospital, Albany Medical Center, Ellis Hospital, and others in the Capital Region of New York in the Saratoga/Glens Falls/Albany area.
