Fresh48 photos is a session where I come to the hospital, or place of birth, and photograph your brand new baby and your family. The session usually lasts about 30-45 minutes and is very relaxed.
This particular session is of family very close to my heart. Ashley has been a friend of mine for years. We met through a photography meet up group a looooong time ago and have stayed connected ever since. I have photographed each of her babies as newborns but this was the first time we did Fresh48 photos.
Sam was born at Salem Hospital and less than 24 hour later I was there to photograph him in all his fresh-out-of-the-womb glory. The best part was watching his two older brothers and older sister meeting him for the first time.
I asked Ashley what was it like to watch your older 3 kiddos meeting brand new baby Sam?
“There are moments in life that make all the struggle worth it. Having three little children with a fourth on the way can be overwhelming, to say the least. But we were all so very excited to bring another baby into the family, and we had spent 9 months with growing anticipation.
Ryan and I tried to think about how we could help make the big kids meeting Sam go smoothly, and then it hit us; we can’t! That’s life with 4 little kids, right? Time to accept the mayhem and find the moments hidden within. Like treasures, they might be hard to see, but they are so very valuable and precious.
Thankfully my dear friend was there to document it for me to cherish forever! Watching this moment that had played out in my head countless times was more beautiful than I could have imagined. It was chaotic and busy, but it was ours. Our whole family together, meeting Sam with so much love and acceptance. There’s something so wonderful to a mommas heart to see her kids love one another. And the love in that room was bursting. Of course, they all had to hold him and even our littlest Jolie who was 18 months seemed to know this baby was ours.”
