Fresh 48 hospital session

Birth, in any form, is huge. It’s the most life changing experience most of us will ever have. A fresh 48 session is perfect if you’re not quite comfortable having your labour and birth photographed but you still want to capture those first hours of your baby’s life earthside when everything, and everyone, is so beautifully raw.

This session is all about you and your baby, your new family. It’s about first meetings and the echoes of your heart and head exploding, and life turning a new page. Those first few hours and days of life as a new parent is a bit of a blur, and everything constantly changes. The immediate postpartum period is life at it’s rawest and most powerful.

 To make sure you get the photos when you want, book before baby is born and we can put down some tentative dates. If you want images captured within the first 24-72 hours, it is important that I have your due date to work around. 

Fresh 48 sessions are for all types of families. Because love is love.

If you would like a more extensive or in-home package, I suggest booking a full family session. These are fully adaptable to Fresh 48 or newborn sessions.

  • My on-call availability to you from 38 weeks of pregnancy

  • A questionnaire after booking to get to know you

Full Session

Our stories are our legacies. Our photographs will be left to whisper about the connections and events in our lives long after we’re gone. We live, laugh and come alive through our eyes. The trouble for most of us is that someone always has to be behind the camera. That’s ok for most little things, and some big ones, but it will never tell the complete story.

Investing in professional photography isn’t an every day thing, I get that. It’s placing your trust, and money, in someone to create images you will fall in love with again and again. It’s making sure that your legacy is not lost. It’s an investment in memory. 

There have been, and still are, too many moments in my life that I have little to no photos of, connections I’m visually not a part of. When no one is left to tell my part in those stories, I will be gone from those memories.

This simple and rather sad fact has made me passionate about telling people’s stories.

A full session is suitable for families and connections from all walks of life.

Because love always has been, and always will be, love.

What you get:

  • A questionnaire after booking to get to know you

  • A pre-shoot consult 

  • A 90 minute- 2 hour shoot 

  • A list of locations to choose from unless the session is in-home

  • 10 5x7” archival Giclee prints on Hahnemuhle paper

Other sessions

So maybe you’re not quite into regular sessions. You want something more, something a out of the ordinary. If that’s the case then definitely get in touch. I offer conceptual shoots (see FAQ) as well, and I love the weird and quirky.

Or perhaps you’re after someone to capture your birth story, wether it be a home birth, hospital birth, free birth, planned c-secion, or by a creek in the middle of nowhere. Get in touch! I am an absolute birth nerd and am incredibly passionate about documenting the journey of bringing new life into the world. I am particularly interested in telling the stories of belly births, so please do contact me.

I am also sensitive to the fact that not every reason to have photographs taken are joyous ones. If you want to have a loved one (human or animal) documented that is ill, that has passed or any other occasion, please contact me so we can discuss your situation and put together something that suits you.

But wait… Surely there must be a type of session for those who don’t want a pile of prints but still want professional photos done? Maybe there is. ——>
