Because the first moments of you bonding as a family are important to you
Because it's all new and you want to remember these first moments forever
Because you know that you'll never get this time back
This is for you....

For me, as a Twentynine Palms Fresh 48 Photographer, it's about capturing the bond between baby and parents. A bond that is unbreakable. A bond that will last a lifetime.

A little about my style: I am a natural light photographer who does not use flash photography during my fresh 48 sessions. I love to use the natural and available light to help tell the story of the moments being captured as they unfold. I use a mixture of black and white images, to convey the emotion I capture. I use a mixture of lifestyle and documentary style photography to capture the story of the day.

What is Fresh 48 Photography: Fresh 48 photography sessions take place at the hospital, or in your home if you've had a home birth, within the first 48 hours of baby's life. It's different than a newborn session because it is specifically done within 48 hours whereas newborn photography is typically done in a studio (or as I do them, in your home) within the first 14 days of baby's life.

Why I love Fresh 48 sessions: One of the things I love most about being a Fresh 48 Photographer in Twentynine Palms is getting to capture the first moments of baby's life. Whether that's during and immediately after birth, or a couple days later. I love going to the hospital to visit the family with their newest little member and watching their interactions together. It's such a special moment that I feel truly blessed to be able to capture. I love that these sessions are real. It's not about "sit and smile for the camera", it's about a new family that has been created.

 Why choose a Fresh 48 session: Fresh 48 sessions are great for the parents who aren't fully comfortable with capturing the birth of their baby, or perhaps for medical reasons or conditions, they just aren't able to have a birth photographer present. Fresh 48 sessions still allow for the documentation of the first new moments of being a new family. It's also a great session to have big brother or sister involved in because often times, they aren't present during the birth of their new sibling.
