What is a Fresh 48 session? Wilton, Ct Photographer

If you are a parent, I am sure one of the days in your life you remember vividly is the day your children were born.

It is both a joyous and happy time in your life. You are in pure bliss state of mind, and you are trying to take it all in and not forget this special time in your life. 


What is a Fresh 48 session?

A Fresh 48 is a session takes place within the first 48 hours of your baby’s life. This session focuses on your newborn baby and your family as a whole. The first couple days of welcoming your baby into the world can feel like such a blur with such happy and important memories taking place in such a short period of time. This will be one of your favorite days of your life and I want you to have images from this time to remember. The session typically takes place in the hospital, home, birthing center and is up to 60 minutes long. 

What do you photograph?

I photograph your newest addition and your family. I focus on the baby for the first half of the session photographing the little details of your baby such as

  • the hospital hats/blankets your child is wearing or wrapped up within
  • the hospital bracelets on their tiny ankles
  • their tiny wrinkly toes and fingers
  • the baby in the hospital bassinet 



I then add mom, dad and any siblings to the frame, focusing on the connection that you have with for your bundle of joy. I find it is essential to capture mom and dad with their newborn; it is a gift you are giving yourself and your baby for the future. They will have the ability to look back on the day they were born and see the love you had for them. Some moments that happen within your baby’s first few hours of being born are moments you can not recreate again. 


  • your oldest children meeting your newborn for the first time
  • introduction to family members
  • the tight embrace or kiss you give your newborn that you’ve waited 9 months to do
  • mom/dad’s first diaper change
  • going home from the hospital 





Why should we choose to book a Fresh 48 session?

I think it is a very important memory to have for not only yourselves, but your children to look back on. There will days where you wish they would get bigger, but you soon will discover that time goes by much faster than we plan and one day in the not so distant future you will want to turn back time to these days. The days are long, but the years are short. Before you know it you soon will be preparing yourself for your baby’s first birthday. Be sure to cherish all of the newborn days including the rough days where you find yourself wishing for a full nights sleep.
