Baby Margo | Fresh 48 Newborn Photography in Albuquerque

SMA Photography is a Newborn Photographer in Albuquerque, NM

Margo was born at home in Albuquerque, on a gorgeous June evening.

The following morning, I headed over to photograph her Fresh 48 Newborn Photography session.

As I mention often, Fresh 48 are some of my very favorite newborn photo sessions.

And it’s because of the pure love and joy, that always shines through.

Big brother met his baby sister for the first time a few hours before I arrived, and was already smitten with her - as were mom and dad, of course.

It’s those little details of the time and the emotions around them that make these newborn sessions so unique and special.

Fresh 48 newborn photography is about remembering the connections,

the quiet,

the first moments,

and bringing you right back to the sense of awe you feel in being with your baby in these first days.

The unique bond between baby and family is one I cherish, and it’s truly my passion as a newborn photographer in Albuquerque to give you these memories in photos and video of your baby’s first 48 hours of life.

While Fresh 48 Newborn Photo Sessions usually take place in the hospital, they can absolutely happen at home for families who choose home birth or have their baby at a birth center.

(The term Fresh 48 only relates to the time of the session - within 48 hours of baby’s birth - and is not related to location at all.)

So regardless of the intended location of your baby’s birth, you can absolutely schedule a Fresh 48 Newborn Photography Session with me in the Albuquerque or Rio Rancho area, just by sending me a message.

And speaking of babies and the magic of motherhood, make sure to check out my friend Kara’s post about the importance of capturing your motherhood in mini-sessions (like my Annual Pass Sessions, which are included in two amazing Newborn Collections!). Her Lifestyle Family Photography from Whidbey Island, Washington absolutely inspires me to get in the frame for my own motherhood session.
