I’ve always struggled with newborn photography. I’ve never been one with “the touch” that can put babies right to sleep and pose them for hours. I started doing lifestyle newborn sessions about 2 years ago (after my daughter was born) and fell in love with everything lifestyle. Recently, I decided to give Fresh 48 sessions a try and I honestly believe they may be my new favorite. You might be wondering what a Fresh 48 session is. Fresh 48 sessions are a newborn session done within the first 48 hours of life. They are typically done in the hospital and focus on capturing all of the little details the fogginess of new mommyhood (and daddyhood) can make you forget!
You probably recognize Ashley & Zach! This is their 3rd time being featured on my blog and not their last!! (We have a lifestyle newborn session scheduled in a few weeks.) Today I got to capture their sweet new baby boy who was not even 24 hours old! Confession time: I’d be lying if I said hearing that sweet newborn cry and seeing his tiny wrinkled feet didn’t give me a little bit of baby fever.
Welcome to the world, Owen Austin. You’ve got an amazing mommy and daddy who will give you the world!!!
