These documentary photography sessions are a perfect way to capture many of your baby’s firsts, short of photographing the actual birth. The session takes place within 24-48 hours of your baby's birth at your Austin-area hospital, birthing center or even the privacy of your own home.

We photograph those special once of a lifetime moments like baby’s weigh-in and check up, the first time their siblings and grandparents meet them. Celebrate these special moments in timeless photography. Art wall prints, announcements and albums are also available and discounts are available when pared with a maternity or new born session.

A new baby is a lot to plan for, here are a few tips to help you prepare for your newborn photos:

  1. Pack everything you need for the session. No doubt you'll have an outfit ready for your baby, but you want to be prepared with something comfortable for you and dad, too. Consider your comfort when choosing. Pajamas and simple shirts for mom and dad are ideal. Think loose and adjustable. Having a professional make-up artist visit just before the session is a great option, though not necessary.
  2. Make sure we can get in touch quickly. Of course, we'll make advanced arrangements to know when the delivery is close. But have my contact information on both your husband's phone and yours so both of you can contact me when you head to the hospital and then give me a heads up when it's a good time to make my way over to you.
  3. If the family will be there, help them prepare, too. Let them know that you'll want some of your time alone with the baby documented before the whole family joins us. Having lots of people around can tire out a little one so pauses may be necessary. We buffer our time to allow for those breaks. Those moments can also make for great photos.
  4. Do you have any special mementos, props, or outfits you'd like photographed with the baby? Set them aside before I arrive, and we'll include them in photos.
  5. If the baby has older siblings, we want to make time for photos with them, too! Ideally, they'll arrive halfway through the session so we can have that dedicated time with your baby first. Bring some snacks and safe toys for big brothers and sisters. 

Last tip: get in touch as soon as you decide you'd like to have a Fresh 48 session for your family. We can chat about due dates and other details and ensure everything's all set for you. It's a fantastic thing, an honor, to help you remember your family's milestones in real, lovely pictures.
