I have known Farrah’s family for several years as I’ve photographed all three of their girls as newborns, such an honor!! Farrah’s older sister and my daughter go to gymnastics together and Farrah’s mom and I chatted about the idea of a hospital session, or as some call it, a Fresh 48 session. A session that takes place in the hospital 48 hours after birth (or close). Farrah was just about 34 hours old when I met her. I’m not what you would call a ‘lifestyle’ photographer but I enjoyed this session so much. It was so different than what I’m used to but it was so awesome. Holding a fresh, new baby, their wrinkly skin, swollen eyes… there’s nothing quite like it. They change SO much from the time they enter the world until I see them in my studio (around day 14), it’s incredible! I’m so glad we decided to do this and document Farrah’s newness and can’t wait to capture more “welcome baby” sessions in the future. Images captured at St John’s Hospital in Owasso, OK.
