What do want to remember about your baby's newborn days?
This time, filled with caring for and getting to know your baby, is truly magical.
The way you hold your baby in your arms, quiet her cries, kiss her sweet cheeks, and soothe her to sleep.
The way your husband scoops up your baby, pats her back, and whispers sweet words in her ear.
The way her fingers curl around yours. The way her feet fit in your husband's hand. The way she gazes as you both.
For me, the images that pull on my heart and bring the memories flooding back aren't the ones that are perfectly posed.Read More
When Colleen and Matt sat down with me to discuss their maternity and newborn photo sessions, they were on the fence about including a Fresh 48 session.

So instead of the traditional hospital setting that marks most Fresh 48 Sessions, I photographed a glimpse of Joshua's first few sweet hours and his brand-new, newborn features in the comfort of his parents' bedroom, right after his dad got home from work.
Joshua was incredibly alert. He would gaze at his mama - and even into the camera - with such intensity, it took my breath away.Read More
There is something so sweet and so joyful about a Fresh 48 Session. This miracle, for so long unseen, is finally here. I was able to meet Baby O just a few short hours after his long awaited arrival, and photograph this special time for his parents and family to hold onto, even as he grows into the person he'll become. Congratulations, Donna and Will. Baby O is perfect.Read More
