Fresh-48 Session- What is it and why you should consider booking one!

Your Marshfield WI photographer here to capture your story from wedding bells, bumps, and babies to births, and all those special moments between!

First of all, I am so happy you are here! My name is Arika Mueller, and I am a photographer specializing in Fresh 48 sessions! As a mom of 2 crazy boys, I know how demanding the hustle and bustle of daily life can be. Allow me to step in behind the scenes while you are in recovery and capture your intimate, new moments with your new perfect little human. Walking through the door of a recovery room and seeing parents interact with their new little family member is one of my favorite parts about my job. I’ve been there in your shoes before as a new mom. And I can promise you that these are moments you won’t want to forget. I am humbled every time parents choose me, and I can’t wait to capture your little blessing!

So, What Is Fresh 48 Photography?

There is something so magical about the period between when a baby is born, and the time that baby leaves the hospital. Following the excitement and thrill of birth, the first 48 hours of the baby’s life is a time of peace and quiet. Having these fresh photos taken will capture their wrinkly toes, button noses, and tiny fingers! This is a sweet and intimate session of the first beginnings of your family. While still at the location of the place of birth, I will arrive to capture all the tender, new moments of welcoming the new addition as a complete family; siblings and extended family included! These sweet, candid shoots are lovely for remembering that extraordinary, yet fleeting time forever.

The Benefits Of Doing A Fresh 48 Session?

Believe it or not, your time at the hospital is fast, and you just had a baby! You are likely sleep deprived, in pain, or dealing with non-stop hospital staff and visitors checking on you. This can make your whirlwind of a day somewhat blurry. Having the fresh 48 session allows you this time to pause in that moment of time, in the raw, not staged or forced. And those images you snap your sell are great, but often times they don't include YOU! So please, skip the poor-quality cellphone photographs. As a professional, we also capture more images than you thought of capturing! Having a professional capture your session will ensure beautiful images of YOU and your family. You want to be present and in the moment! Always remember the way they looked tightly swaddled, with rosy cheeks, and the tiny hospital hat placed on their heads. Babies will never be this new again!

All Fresh 48s are unique experiences and are all wonderful in their own special ways. If you have any further questions, please feel free to email, call, or text me!
