The birth of your baby is a gigantic life moment. Finally, after months of waiting, you’re able to see and hold your miracle.
A Fresh 48 Photo Session is a special session for families who want their baby’s first hours documented, including those uniquely newborn details, without having the entire labor and birth photographed. This shoot takes place 24-48 hours after birth.
What an exciting journey you are on!
Birth photography is still very much an up-and-coming genre of photography, but soooo incredibly special and an amazing investment. Many people don't know Professional Birth Photography exists... and if they heard of it, they might not truly understand why a woman would want a complete stranger with a camera present when she's giving birth.
"Gross, why would anyone want THAT captured?" - I've heard it countless times. What you might not understand, is that Birth Photography is not just about a picture of a baby physically being born. It is that, and SO MUCH MORE!
Birth Photography is about telling a story. It is about documenting the anticipation of those hours before your baby is born. Birth Photography is about documenting that exact moment when you look at your baby for the first time, hold them in your arms, smell their smell for the first time, hear their cry for the first time.
Your partner might be a great photographer, however, giving your partner the role of photographer will deprive him of more crucial roles: your support during labor and delivery and his participation at the moment of birth.
Who is going to capture that part of your story? Who is going to capture the moment when your partner lays eyes on his child, and finally holds that little baby for the first time? By hiring a Birth Photographer you are giving the whole family the gift of being in the pictures, and being a part of the story!
This shoot includes a mini Fresh 48 session directly after the birth. It is important to find out before you book this shoot if your hospital allows a photographer in theatre. This shoot is so special as Dad can focus 100% on the mom, and not be on his phone trying to capture the moments.
Thank you for your interest in my Fine Art Newborn shoot. These photos are composite images which are mostly done in post production (Photoshop). You will be able to choose from a variety of digital backdrops.
Thank you for your interest in a lifestyle newborn shoot. This type of shoot is a more journalistic kind of style where I don't pose the baby in baskets, buckets or any props. I do give guidance with posing though. This shoot takes place in the comfort of your own house and is usually done in a room(s) with good natural light.
Thank you for your interest in my newborn packages. I absolutely LOVE newborn shoots and it will be such an honour to photograph this special time in your life.
The styled newborn shoots are done in my home studio in Pretoria East. I do the styled newborn shoots only in my home studio as I use a big studio light which is not portable. I also prefer to have all my props near me if I want to change a setup, headband or blanket.
These sessions are best done within the first 10 days from birth. The newborns are (most of the time) still very sleepy at that age and it is easier to pose them in all those cute poses. With this session I style and wrap the baby in baskets, buckets and other props. Newborn Safety is of utmost importance to me, so your baby will ALWAYS be safe in all props. You don't need to bring anything with except your newborn =)
Thank you for your interest in my maternity packages. This is such an exciting time and I would love to capture special memories for you. I usually do this shoot between 28-32 weeks of your pregnancy.
