I have been wanting to do a Fresh 48 session for quite some time. This is something I wish I could have had captured for any of my children. I wanted the chance to try it out and see if this is something I really wanted to offer. Would I even like it? Well, I did my first one and I ADORE it! I loved everything about it and really hope I have more opportunities to capture these incredible memories for families. I won’t be able to do many of these due to the unpredictability, but I want to do as many as I can!
Hospital sessions are not meant to be glamorous. They aren’t about perfection, perfect skin tones, styled this or that, they are about reality. They are to capture the moments you may be too tired to really remember. They are to help shuttle you back to this time filled with joy, recovery, fear and overwhelming love. You might take your camera to the hospital, but most likely you will be too busy or too tired to document. Still bring your camera, but bring me too! Have me come so that you know you will have the images that will help you remember. That you can show your baby in years to come. Don’t worry about how you look! None of us look beautiful after carrying a baby for what seems like forever and then delivering them. Forget about all of that and focus on the heart of it.
I’m so incredibly grateful that this beautiful family allowed me to come to the hospital for my first Fresh 48 session. They had no idea what to expect out of me, yet graciously welcomed me into this special time with them. I arrived at Moses Taylor Hospital in Scranton, PA and was greeted with smiles and excitement. I was filled with emotion just remembering what it was like being in the hospital with my babies and nephews. They did an amazing job and I can’t wait to see them again this week for the studio newborn session. Scroll down to meet the beautiful Vera and her 3 older siblings. She will always hold a special place in my heart as my first Fresh 48 baby.
