Fresh 48 photos in Manhattan NYC

About Fresh 48 Sessions

Having a baby is one of the most important days in a new parent’s life. Fresh 48 photography is a special session for those new families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured without having the entire birth documented. This is known as a “Fresh 48” session. This is a perfect way to capture the brand new life of a newborn in the hospital within the first 48 hours of birth. These lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever. Personally, I think it’s so important that parents jump at the opportunity to have a photographer present to document those 48 first hours in the hospital. Photos of your little one’s first yawns, cute little baby feet, fingers, belly button are all documented and they will never be any smaller, or newer, again. New parents can, understandably, worry about having these sessions (after all, the mother has just given birth) but, capturing the emotion is so effortless as new parents are so full of honest and raw emotion. After all, they have been waiting nine months to finally meet their new little one. 

About this Fresh 48 Session: Baby J

For this session, I ventured down to NYU's Tisch Hospital on Manhattan’s East side on what was an arctic day outside. You wouldn’t be able to tell from these pictures though, as there was so much love and warmth on the inside. There were smiles all around the room - between the new parents and grandparents. This family is prepared to love and spread happiness with Baby J all around! Baby J is so adorable! I'm so lucky to be able to capture such adorable newborns with great families. I enjoyed getting shots of this cute newborn. I can confidently say that Baby J has been born to two of NYC's most loving parents. These new parents are so excited and I'm excited to see Baby J grow with them. These photos have love written all over them.
