I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Fresh 48 sessions are some of my favorite favorite favorite sessions to do. There’s something kind of magical and beautiful about documented fresh babies in the place they were born. Photographing the first few hours in which this newly minted human is being exposed to air, blankets, milk, its parents, its family. Pretty dang wonderful, if you ask me!
I photographed baby Sawyer when she was about 17 hours old. Her mom Grace is a photographer friend of mine (it’s always humbling to photograph another photographer!), and I was pretty jazzed to be able to capture this time in their lives. While I was there she had her hearing test done, something I don’t remember from when my little was a newborn (I remember her having a hearing test but I think they did it in the nursery???).
