She’s Here! ~ Pittsburgh Fresh48 Newborn

Did you know that I offer

Fresh48 newborn sessions?

I do and they are some of the sweetest sessions that I get to shoot.  With the trend of LifeStyle photography catching on, there is an increased demand for birth photography and Fresh48 sessions. There are lots of families who love the idea of capturing those first moments with baby but are a little unsure about having a photographer in the room with them.  However, I’ve found that a Fresh48 session is a great option for getting a documentary/LifeStyle session without the pressure of having an additional person with you while giving birth.

The Fresh48 session is done within the first 48 hours after your little one arrives.  It can be done in the hospital or at home (if you opt for delivering at an alternative location).  This gives both moms and dads an opportunity to record those first moments getting to know the new little one or to bring in older siblings to meet the new one.

With this recent session, I was able to do a second Fresh48 session for this family as they welcomed baby #3.  You can check out her big brother’s hospital photography session too.

Session Details –


  • Session type: Fresh48 Hospital
  • Subject: baby girl, mama and daddy
  • Location: Heritage Valley Hospital, Sewickley

We were waiting for this little bundle for many days.  As baby #3, mama was sure that this little one would enter the world before her due date.  Well, she proved her mama wrong by arriving a few days late but as you can see, she was worth the wait.

Welcome Little One

As moms, we’re often worried about how we’re going to look in pictures and so we end up avoiding them.  Once again, I want to be the voice encouraging you (as well as myself) to stop it and just be in the picture.  What do you see when you look at this beautiful new mom?  Do you see anything but love?  I admit, I’m in a unique position because this particular mama is also one of my best friends but I look at these images and just see how amazing she looks.  And I think about how precious these images are going to be as this little one grows up.

Pittsburgh Dad

Yes, a Fresh48 session includes dad!  It’s important to capture those moments of daddy getting to know his new little boy or girl.  And this Pittsburgh dad had the perfect shirt to wear for the occasion.  (For those of you who might not know, Pittsburgh Dad is a local personality who makes some pretty great videos on being a Pittsburgh dad).
