Fresh 48 Photography in Virginia Beach
Parents have some time to recover at the hospital once the baby arrives. Take advantage of this “down” time and snap some professional photos of your baby during their first days. The coolest thing about fresh 48 photography is the setting. It’s not often that we get to be excited about being in a hospital! I love the baby blanket, bassinet, and little hat the hospital provides. They photograph beautifully! I also love the bright and airy light that comes through hospital windows. Additionally, I love capturing blissfully tired parents. These images OOZE love!
FRESH 48 PHOTOGRAPHY FAQ
When do I book?
It’s nice to know ahead of time, but I can pretty much make anything happen with a day or two notice.
When do I call you?
Babies come on their own schedule. You’ll need to notify me that baby is coming! I suggest you assign your support person the duty of texting me when you go into labor. I’ll want to get my affairs in order. Text me once the baby is born. We will plan accordingly. Typically, a fresh 48 session occurs a day or two after birth.
Can my family or children come?
Yes! It’s your day. We will have to coordinate the visiting times.
What time do we shoot?
Hospitals have visiting hour regulations. You will need to communicate with the nursing staff your intention to have a photographer. Fresh 48 sessions are photographed during daylight hours.
How long is the session?
Fresh 48 sessions are 60-90 minutes long. I build in time for interruptions.
How many images do I get?
You’ll get all of the good images. Average 60-100 images. Fresh 48 galleries have a quick delivery turn around.
What if my baby is in the NICU?
If the baby has a short stay in the NICU, don’t worry. You will likely be put in a regular room before being discharged. Communicate with me and we will figure it out. If the baby is going to be in the NICU long-term, call me. I will arrange to be there during “skin-to-skin” time.
