Cozy Fresh 48 Hospital Session | Charleston Fresh 48 Photography

I was so excited to meet this sweet Mama during a recent motherhood model call for our client wardrobe. Be sure to check our our IG story highlights to see some of those photos! She was stunning in every dress, but one thing I noticed was how excited she was to be a Mama! There’s nothing quite like anticipating the arrival of your first baby and it was so special to see that. Little did I know, just a couple weeks later I’d have the honor of meeting this sweet baby boy at his cozy Fresh 48 hospital session!

With hospital sessions I’m used to working in small spaces and limited light- this one was probably the darkest ever! We had to work with the window light as much as possible. Mom and dad were so laid back and comfortable in front of the camera. They truly were just soaking up all of that newborn goodness. And this sweet boy was SO precious! 

During the motherhood event I also had the chance to talk to a lot of Mama’s about Fresh 48 vs newborn sessions. I realized some don’t know the difference, which they want or if they should do both! I put together some FAQs and this Q&A with one of my Fresh 48 clients to help you decide, and I am always here to help!
