What is First 48?
First 48 photography is a special session for those new families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented. Held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby’s life, these lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever. I will come to your place of birth within 48 hours. This is not a traditional newborn session; I will not pose the baby or bring props or lights. This will just be me capturing your baby’s sweet new moments in a fresh natural way.
As passionate as I am about birth photography, I do understand that it isn’t for everyone. Whether it’s finances, medical concerns, or the very concept of a photographic depiction of your labor and delivery, you won’t want to skip the First 48! With the option to shower, rest, eat a good meal, and get dressed after birth, the First 48 will appeal to those who want a more controlled photography experience.
All First 48’s include me being on call two weeks surrounding your due date, travel, 2 hours together, and your complete collection on a gorgeous maple flash drive. It will take place where you gave birth, during daylight hours, within the first 48 hours of birth — the sooner the better!
