Fresh 48 Session | Annapolis Family Photography | Brand New

My ovaries have gone into overdrive and it's all this little one's fault.  Is she not the most beautiful thing ever?

Her name is Eleanor and hers was my very first newborn session done in the hospital, aka Fresh 48 Session.  I haven't been around such a new and tiny baby since my daughter was born 5 years ago.

When I arrived for our session, she was busy crying.  And her new parents were busy trying to figure out what she wanted.  Which turns out, was to nurse. And nurse, and nurse, and nurse.  Poor Mom!

While photographing that day, I remembered a little bit of what it was like for myself back in the days of my brand new babies.   Mostly I recall it being exhausting.  But oh--those little toes, fingers and faces!!

I remembered how overwhelmed I was.  And scared.  But I was mostly amazed that I--no, we--had MADE this little person!  And I remember myself just staring at each of my kids in wonder, dreaming about what it would be like when they started growing up.

I loved spending time with this brand new family.  It was such an honor to be invited to share in their lives.  I really wish that I had known about these 'Fresh 48' sessions when I had my kids.  Because as it turns out, no matter how much you think you'll remember every little detail about this time in your life--you don't.   So please let me know if you'd like to schedule (and I use that term loosely) a Fresh 48 session for your newest family addition.  I promise you won't regret it.
