Fresh 48, or hospital newborn, sessions are one of the most wonderful more recent trends in family photography, in my humble opinion. There are few events in life that rival the importance, emotional significance and transcendental meaning of the birth of a child. A new baby changes the life of all those who love her or him in an instant and whether you’re welcoming a first, second or fifth child into your world and family, the deep meaning and import of that change is constant. Capturing the first hours or days in a baby’s life are so incredibly precious as the old adage warning that they change so quickly is never more true than during those first few days, weeks and months. I personally feel that there is no better way to capture, document and remember those special early days of your baby’s life than a fresh 48 session and I’m so happy to present this example of newborn photography Madison WI via the story of this beautiful family.

When I visited the hospital less than 24 hours after baby C’s birth, I got to capture the exuberant and joyful meeting between this beautiful little girl and her big sister and brother. They were so excited to meet her and pretty psyched to enjoy the popsicles and ice cream that all hospital insiders know are available at the nurse’s station. The hour I spent with this family was full of love, joy and laughter and excitement and every minute of it was replete with beauty. There’s nothing more poignant than your real life and it fills my heart every time I get to document it. If you’re looking for newborn photography Madison, WI I can’t encourage you enough to think of capturing these precious few days after you welcome a baby into your life.
