After being lucky enough to witness Evie’s birth (see The Birth of Evie ), I was excited to visit her again a couple of days later for her Fresh 48 session. Fresh 48 sessions are images taken in the first 48 hours of a new baby’s life – and are taken in the hospital or place of birth. They are a gorgeous way to remember that time in the hospital which is your first home together as a family. I personally always loved my time spent in the hospital. I found it was such a nice way to bond with our new baby without the distractions of cooking and cleaning, and all of the normal daily life stuff. It let us stay in a little bubble for awhile and just absorb our baby. So for me, I have fond memories of the time spent in hospital and I think it’s beautiful to capture some memories there.
I was amazed at how much Evie had already changed since she was first born less than 2 days earlier! I was also amazed at just how fabulous her Mummy Ashlee looked – it was as if she hadn’t just delivered a baby! I felt like I was walking in on the perfect family. Evie remained just as peaceful as she was when she was first born, and both Matt and Ashlee were completely in love with everything about her. Ashlee had styled Evie perfectly – they changed her into a plain white onesie and added a gorgeous textured beanie, and gorgeous textured booties. Texture and simplicity = perfection. The booties were a little big and kept falling off of her feet – but that just made them even cuter! Evie slept her way through a lot of the session, which made for perfect opportunities to capture those new baby cuddles. These are some of my favourite images!
