are held at your place of birth (home or hospital) within the first 12-48 hours after your little one arrives.
We only accept a limited number of fresh 48 sessions per month to ensure each client gets our full care and attention.
We suggest that you book your maternity photography, birth photography, fresh 48 and newborn photography at the beginning of your second trimester.
We will add your estimated due date to our calendar and when baby arrives we will schedule your fresh 48 session for 12-48 hours after baby is born.
In both instances you are often trusting a complete stranger to hold, nurse, feed (bottle), pose, wrap, dress and finally, photograph, your less than 10 day old baby!
In addition, the Newborn Photography industry is currently unregulated. This means that there is NO SPECIFIC QUALIFICATION that a photographer MUST obtain before they can start offering the service.
Just because a photographer is a mother (or father) and they can use a camera, does not ensure they are qualified to be a newborn photographer. You wouldn't ask someone to be your Chief Financial Officer for your business, because they are good at managing the family budget. Nor would you leave your child in the care of an unregistered day-care provider, just because they have a child of their own.
Hence, in such an oversaturated and unregulated market, parents should spend a lot of time researching the right Newborn Photographer, to ensure they have the necessary skills and experience in handling newborn babies.
