Juli and Frankie’s maternity session was made perfect by a Georgian winter sunset. 60 degrees and beautiful. These two will have the most gorgeous baby! With perfect timing we were able to fit in Dowdell’s Knob and my favorite location down the road into one session. I will always 1000% recommend rust and burnt orange for your maternity sessions! It really just ads the perfect earth toned pop. Especially during golden hour. The Knob is one of my top 5 favorite locations in Columbus for a maternity session.

What is this Fresh 48 session you keep hearing about, and why do you need one? This Columbus Georgia Newborn Photographer is here to lay it out for you!

Fresh 48 sessions take place at your baby’s place of birth, which is typically your postpartum room at the hospital. They are done within the first 2 days after baby is born and are meant to capture all those tiny raw details that change so very quickly even before your scheduled newborn session. The little flakes on their fingers and toes, the fuzz that drapes their backs and ears. Not to mention the absolutely glowing and smitten new parents. Once siblings are allowed back to visit Mom after the baby is born, Fresh 48s are the absolute sweetest way to document your older children meeting the new baby for the first time.

One thing I remember about having my children was just how peaceful those first 48 hours were before heading home and being on our own. Just something about the absolute bliss that washes over you once baby is actually here. I have spent years turning those feelings into works of art for families. Whenever asked, YES you should absolutely book a Fresh 48 session! Hang onto those moments for as long as you possibly can.

5 newborn fresh 48 hospital photography tips

During my time as a newborn and fresh 48 photographer I have been to countless hospitals and worked in numerous lighting conditions. With the the current virus pandemic that is sweeping our nation so many hospitals are closing their doors to outside visitors, leaving a lot of new parents without their hired photographer to capture their precious moments with their brand new baby.

I have put together 5 of my favorite tips to help parents best capture their babies first few hours earth side.

tip # 1 – Open all the blinds and turn off all the other lights in the room.

Natural light is the absolute best for hospital photography. The white and orange lights of most hospital rooms will cast an awkward color cast over babies skin. Don’t be afraid to take baby near the open window. Vitamin D is good for you!!

tip # 2 – plan your photos after a feeding

The saying is all too true. A fed baby is a happy baby. Birth is tiring, not just for mom, but also for baby. I have found that newborns are the most calm right after a feeding and they tend to snooze right through all the photos. Who doesn’t love adorable shots of a brand new baby dreaming the day away?

tip # 3 – bring simple clothing

This is a big one! Something I tell all of my clients before every session. Bring something to wear in photos that is plain and simple. Earth tones really work best or whites. Bold patterns or big logos are very distracting in photos and you don’t want to forever be staring at the Nike or Adidas logo right behind your babies head while Dad is holding him!

This tip also goes for baby! All the little duckies and butterflies are super cute on onesies, but plain onesies or little outfits just photograph so well in a hospital setting.

tip # 4 – angle is everything!

One of the best newborn photography tips in general is all about angles. You do not want to position your camera so that your angle is showing up the babies nose. Position your camera just slightly higher so that babies nostrils are barely showing. That always makes for the most flattering images. Don’t be afraid to try all sorts of different angles, from the side or from above. There are so many possibilities!

tip # 5 – details matter

This is my most important tip. Details matter. Their little hands and feet only stay this little, for a very little while. Capture photos of their little fingers and little ears. The little fuzz on their shoulders or cheeks. Take a shot of the top of their head showing all their hair or their lack of it! These types of photos are ALWAYS favorites of all of my clients. They are also my favorites of all of my own children. They are absolutely priceless!

BONUS TIP: Whatever you do, don’t forget to get some captures with the new mama and babe. I know the last thing most of us mothers want to do right after giving birth is be photographed. You don’t have to publish them online, but I have had so many of my moms come back to me later and tell me how thankful they are that I got them in the frame for a few shots. That time period is such a blur for most new parents that sometimes small details like making sure mama is in photos with baby can be forgotten. They don’t have to be perfectly photographed images, they will be perfect because of the memories attached to them.
