Fresh 48 Sessions

What is a Fresh 48 session?

Having a baby is one of the most pivotal points in your life. Those special moments in the hospital are so very precious – your little one will only be that little those first few days. From the moment your baby is born, your baby will be constantly changing so fast – hour to hour, day to day. This session can capture those first milestones: breastfeeding, meeting siblings, Dad’s first diaper change, meeting the grandparents, or simply just gazing at your new bundle of joy. These moments will soon be lost in the fog of your “babymoon”! You and your family are experiencing a whirlwind of emotions then you’re sent home where weeks, months, years later those memories from your hospital stay can begin to fade… it’s the magic of treasured photographs that can instantly bring you back to that moment, the atmosphere, the smells, the sounds, the joy you and your family shared during those cherished happy times.

Many families are investing in a photographer to document those first moments to have peace of mind in remembering every detail. A Fresh 48 Session is an intimate session for families that want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured. Typically held within the first 24-48 hours after your baby’s birth, this lifestyle session will take place when those emotions are still high and everything is brand new… it’s perfect for remembering those first moments forever.

Capturing all the details… the tiny hat, the room, hospital blanket, wrinkles, flaky skin, tiny feet, hands, hospital bracelets – all of it. As you and your family ooh and awe over your little bundle of joy that is now a part of your family, your photographer will slip in for one hour to capture more than the details… the light, airy glow that is filling your room… that will quickly become a blur of excitement once you bring your newborn home. It’s important to note that a Fresh 48 Session is not meant to take the place of a newborn session. While possibly only days apart, your newborn baby will barely even look the same by the time you have your in-home newborn portraits captured (typically held within 7-14 days of life).

Why have a Fresh 48 session?

Interested in documenting your baby's first day, but don't know if you're quite ready to hire a birth photographer?  I totally get it!  There are quite a few reasons to capture your baby's first hours/days of life.  Consider your little one's cute little feet and tiny hands, their first yawns, first feedings (discreetly captured), diaper changes, the first time siblings will meet and above all - those quiet moments between you and your new little bundle of joy.  Let me capture all of that, so that all you have to do is enjoy the moment.  Many parents use these photos as part of their birth announcement. Rest assured, regardless of why you decide to capture these moments - I promise you won't ever regret having them.  They will be priceless memories.

Here are a few more reasons that you should let Nina Araica Photography document this precious time and capture all of the details you'll want to remember from your baby's first day;

  • Your hospital room number 

  • The fuzzy hair on your baby's shoulder 

  • The peeling skin on their tiny little fingers

  • The skittles that got you through your first night postpartum

  • The first tiny hand grip
