The truth is you don't have to do much for your Fresh 48 Newborn Photography Session other than give birth! Easy right!? 😂 

1. Scheduling your Fresh 48 Session

We'll book your Fresh 48 Photography Session for the month you are due in. Once you have your baby, you let me know and we'll schedule a time for me to come photograph. We can schedule it so that older brothers or sisters can be there to meet the baby but it does have to be scheduled during daylight hours. 

2. What to wear?!

This is the fun part! Some moms like to have a matching robe and swaddle for their Fresh 48 Photography Session. There are stores that specialize in this like Posh Peanut and MilkMaid Goods, Etsy also has a ton of fun choices. Or you can choose to wear your favorite soft tee and comfy pants, honestly no matter what you choose, they will be beautiful because the focus of these photographs will be on you and your new baby.

Some goods tips to follow are:

-Choose neutral or light colors. Grey, creamy or pastel colors are all great choices. Too bright of a color could take away attention from your baby in the photo and we want your baby to be the center of attention!

-No big logos or shirts with sayings. This is especially important for Dad's who often do wear t-shirts. 

3. Don't over think your baby's outfit.

Honestly some of my favorite Fresh 48 photographs are when a baby is just wrapped up in the hospital blanket. The hospital blanket design has been around for so long that it's kind of iconic! We can also have an outfit change for your baby, where we take some photographs in the hospital blanket and then switch to a special swaddle blanket. There's so many cute ones of there now! You can find all types of swaddles ranging from pretty flowers designs to Star Wars swaddles!
