Fresh 48 Sessions | Raleigh Newborn Photographer

I am so excited to announce that I am now officially offering Fresh 48 Sessions!  

What is a Fresh 48?!  So glad you asked.  Babies change so incredibly fast within the first weeks and yes even days after birth.  There is usually so much going on not only during the birth of a child but also those days after.  It can be so hard to remember what their little feet looked like, or the expression on his or her face during their first yawn.  Fresh 48 sessions are done in the hospital, during the day prior to being discharged.  They are very casual and usually last 1 hour.  

So what is the difference with a Fresh 48 and a regular Newborn Session?  Well there are a couple differences:

- Location: I do Fresh 48 sessions in the hospital prior to discharge while I will do newborn sessions within the home.

- Age for session:  Fresh 48 sessions happen within the first 48 hours of a baby's life.  I usually schedule newborn sessions at 7-10 days old.  

-Session Duration: Fresh 48 sessions usually last about an hour, but I will never rush through one. Newborn sessions are 1-2 hours, though generally lead into the 2 hours.

Newborns change so much in their first few weeks of life.  What we capture at 24 hours will be different then what we see at 10 days.  Fresh 48 allows the earliest memories to be captured in a casual yet intimate setting.  It is truly a special type of session and one that looking back on my pregnancies I wish I would have thought to do.  

Since we never know when a baby will make its presence and I have to block off time for these sessions, I can only offer a limited amount per month.  Due to the limited availability, I suggest that you book yours as soon as you can!  If you want to add this to a maternity and/or newborn session, I can do so at a bundle price, just let me know! 

For more details and pricing information, visit my Fresh 48 section under pricing on the website or reach out to me and we can talk!

B Newborn Family Session | North Raleigh Photographer

I had such a fun time at this session!  It was not only a pleasure meeting everyone, it was the perfect photo shoot and family to do the day before Mother's Day.  

Kristin was the winner of the free session that Raleigh Moms Blog gave away in March.  Her family recently welcomed a second son, Hudson (seriously I LOVE this name).  His Big Brother, Logan, was beaming from head to toe and just so happy with his new buddy.  

We did the session at their home and even had a chance to enjoy the weather outside for a little baseball and running around!  Hudson was such a trooper and honestly one of the most quiet and calm newborns I have ever seen.  He did such a great job!  It was such a wonderful day and even ended in a little dance party courtesy of Logan.  

Thank you to the B family for a wonderful day and letting me capture this special time in your family.  Congrats on the addition of Hudson!

North Raleigh Newborn Home Session| N Family

This past weekend I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the N Family in North Raleigh. They recently had a new addition to their family making a very proud and almost two year old big brother.  Big Brother Ian just loved being around his baby brother and just really beamed with love!  I am so glad that we were able to capture not only Baby G but Ian in his own element as well.  I loved watching him play with his trains (as I, myself have become a train expert thanks to my own son) as well as just seeing him run around his room showing me his toys.  I feel confident to say that I left with a new friend that day!  It is very safe to say that these two brothers are going to have a great time growing up together and I can't wait to watch it happen.  Congrats to the N family for your new bundle- you truly have a beautiful family! <3

Grow with Me: 3 Month Child Photo Session in North Raleigh

Wow - Miss B is already 3 months now! I swear she just had her newborn pictures yesterday, right?  She is such a sweetheart and I love getting to photograph her.  During this session we were also able to get some pictures of her with her big brother X.  I can't wait to see her continue to grow and photograph her again in another 3 months for her 6 month session!

Miss B smiling away - such a pretty girl xo

X is such a happy and proud big brother
