As an Outer Banks family and newborn photographer I may actually have the best job in the world. Sweet new life. There is just nothing more amazing, precious, and life giving, as the birth of a baby. Those first few precious days can be a haze and I get to document those moments. It is absolute euphoria of bring this amazing miracle into your life. They will never be quite that small again. These are moments that go by in a flash that you never want to forget.Those tiny fingers, that soft newborn hair, those little lips.
While I love the posed newborn photos of a traditional newborn session, the candid lifestyle feel of this type of natural photography are what tug on my heart strings. Real life. Raw moments. Being a part of watching a family grow.
I went to visit sweet Veda just one day after she was born at the Outer Banks Hospital in Nags Head NC. It is the same hospital that I had my own two sweet boys. I didn’t go as a photographer,..but as a friend to her mama. Of course, I did bring my camera in tow. It was a last minute idea, so we didn’t capture her two older siblings in this particular photo session, but we were able to photograph a few details of her first day of life with her gorgeous mama. That sweet newborn smell and those cuddles… it’s enough to give you baby fever. Isn’t Veda absolutely gorgeous!?
While a birth session may not be for everyone, a Fresh 48 session can still capture so many amazing moments without having the intimacy of birth documented.
Fresh 48 takes place within 48 hours after baby is born and typically in the hospital. It’s lifestyle, natural and a great way to include siblings and other family members getting to know the new baby.
These special hospital (or home birth) newborn sessions are now one of my all time favorite things to photograph. Bring on all the babies!
