Hospital Newborn Princeton WV

What is a fresh48 session exactly?

A fresh48 is a unique newborn session that is photographed within the first 48 hours of life. Typically the session is shot at the place of birth and focuses on capturing sweet memories that the fogginess of a new baby causes us to forget.

What does a fresh48 session include?

The fresh48 session package includes a 45 minute mini session and a 10 high resolution digital images delivered via digital download. Images are photographed in black and white. Books and prints are not included but can be purchased for a discounted fee. The fresh48 session is $225.

Do you have a package that includes both a maternity session and fresh48 package?

Yes! You can package a mini maternity session + fresh48 session for just $300! (A $100 discount!!)

Are you limited to certain hospitals?

Due to working a full time job and having a sassy 3 year old I only shoot at Princeton Community Hospital and Bluefield Regional Hospital.

How and when do I pay?

A $50 deposit is due upon booking to reserve your session. The additional fee ($175) is due 1 month before your due date. I only take a limited number of these sessions per month so make sure to reserve your spot!

My baby is coming! What do I do?

Grab your hospital bag!!! 😉 I give all of my momma’s my cell phone number and keep in touch with them during that last month of pregnancy. Just shoot me a text (or have hubby shoot me a text) when you’re headed to the hospital so I can get a general idea of when your session will need to be. Once baby is here, most mom’s text me and we set up a time for their session.

What happens if I or baby don’t feel like being photographed?

Things happen! I have had a new baby and I understand how crazy things can be for you. In the event you’re not feeling well (or if you happento get sick) you may opt to have a mini-session done within the next year!

Why are fresh48 sessions only photographed in black & white?

Due to unpredictable lighting conditions I only  photograph fresh48 sessions in black & white. Black and white images also add a timeless feel to these photos which I love.

Do you pose newborns?

I do not. Any photos of your newborn during this session will be taken in their hospital crib or in your arms. fresh48 sessions are not meant to replace traditional newborn photography.

Can I bring props?

No, I prefer to keep these images as simple as possible and focus on baby.

Do I need to put my baby in an outfit?

Clothes tend to swallow newborns whole so I prefer to keep it simple and have them either in a white onesie or wrapped in their hospital blanket.

When will my images be complete?

Sessions typically take 1-2 weeks to be completed. Once your gallery is complete I will send you a link to my website where you can download your images.
