Fresh 48 – Information Guide

Congratulations! I am so honoured that you have connected with me to capture the first moments of your sweet baby’s life.

A Fresh 48 session is an in-hospital newborn session, where I come and capture the newness of a newborn in the first 48 hours of birth. Having a baby is one of the most important days in your lives, and that’s why I feel it’s so important to document those first moments to have and cherish forever. The session lasts approximately 60 minutes.


My goal is to capture the raw beauty, true emotion and the family interaction of the sweet new baby with mom & dad (siblings too). The smallest details are the ones we want to remember, the tiny toes, the way they hold onto your finger, those adorable lips and even how small they are wrapped in your arms.

The focus is all about those new moments, the baby’s tiny details, the cuddles. It’s not about you getting dressed up, doing your hair and putting lots of make-up on, so please please don’t worry what sort of state you’ll be in or what you look like in that hospital gown! Please also note these sessions, like my newborn sessions, are not about posing the baby or including props. 

Babies come on their own schedule (unless you plan for a c-section), therefore planning this session can be slightly tricky. I typically come to the hospital in the morning or early afternoon (lighting is best) either on day 1 or day 2. Once I receive your news, we can quickly arrange a time.


My sessions are available during visiting hours at Peterborough Regional Health Centre, Northumberland Hills Hospital (Cobourg), Ross Memorial Hospital (Lindsay) and Lakeridge Health Port Perry.

A travel fee will apply to hospitals not listed above at a rate of $0.54/km after the initial 30km.
