Fresh 48 Newborn Session at Anderson Hospital

I had the privilege of shooting at Fresh 48 Newborn Session yesterday for a good friend of mine in Maryville, IL at Anderson Hospital. Many people are unaware of these new sessions, and what they entail. Basically it is a session done in the hospital within the first 48 hours of childbirth.

They are great for parents who want to document the birth of their child with professional photography, but are not interested in having their child’s birth actually photographed. They can happen immediately after the baby is born, or several hours later. This gives Mom and Dad time to rest, get some food, shower, and spend some intimate family time with their new arrival. The purpose of these sessions is not for posed newborn portraits, but to capture relationships, and all the joy that is experienced with a newborn’s arrival.

Here are some of the images from yesterday, enjoy!
