I’ve always loved everything related to maternity and birth photography. Documenting your birth story is one of the best parts of my job. An equally important part of your labor and delivery journey is documenting the first few hours after baby makes their arrival. ABP is so excited to offer you a way to do just that. Starting in July, ABP will offer Fresh 48 sessions. Not 100% sure what a fresh 48 session entails? Check out the FAQ below that answers all of the most common questions!
What exactly are Fresh 48 Sessions?
Fresh 48 sessions are in-hospital lifestyle newborn sessions. We document baby’s first moments after their arrival. Baby has their first portrait taken and we capture all of the perfect little details of their tiny body.
What is the best time for a Fresh 48?
Fresh 48 sessions are done within the first 24-48 hours after birth. I can come to a Dallas area hospital or birthing center the day of the birth (depending on availability and time of delivery).
How long does the session typically last?
Fresh 48 sessions are typically 45-60 minutes. We understand that birth can be an exhausting (but rewarding!) journey. Because of this, we try to limit sessions to 60 minutes and then let parents get back to resting and enjoying their new baby.
Do you provide any props or setups?
Due to the lifestyle nature of the session, we do not use any props. These sessions are meant to focus on documenting the bond between baby and parent and documenting the brand newness of your baby. We will typically use the hospitals bassinet, the traditional pink and blue swaddle blanket, and mom’s bed.
Are Fresh 48 sessions the same as your Birth Story sessions?
Fresh 48 and Birth Story sessions are completely different. Birth Story sessions are meant to document your labor and delivery journey. Your birth team is on call 2 weeks before and after your estimated due date. We arrive once you are laboring and photograph the delivery and first hour after. Fresh 48 sessions capture your first family portrait, baby’s first portrait, the bond between parent and child, and all the sweet details of baby.
Do you only hold Fresh 48 sessions at hospitals?
No! A Fresh 48 can be done at any Dallas area hospital, birthing center, or your home (if you have a home birth.
When should I schedule my Fresh 48 session?
It is best to schedule 2-3 months before your due date. I accept a limited number of these sessions each month, so it is important that you schedule early.
How much are Fresh 48 sessions?
Fresh 48 sessions are $400. Your investment includes the digital images and a beautiful heirloom folio box that includes 20 matted prints. If you book a birth story session, you receive a 50% discount on a Fresh 48.
