Family photos are one of the most important ways to document your life. You will only be where you are in life once. Your children will only be this tiny, this little, once. There is nothing more precious than having that time of each of your lives to look back on, as one day you will find yourself sitting around the kitchen table flipping through old photo albums and reminiscing. This is what one should keep in mind when making the decision to hire a professional photographer - as these images are not just for you in the here and now, but for your family in the future as well.

Whether it's through natural birth, adoption or surrogate, there are few moments more magical than when one becomes a parent. It is an honor to be a part of capturing this special time in life. Babies are incredible creatures. They teach us so much about human nature, the essence of life and living in the present. My job in photographing these wonderful little people goes far beyond just snapping a few shots of your new family member, I aim to capture a unique moment in time and all the emotions along with it. The photos from your session will become a family treasure to be enjoyed again and again.

An After Glow Hospital photography session (a.k.a Fresh 48) is a special session for those new families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented. Held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby’s life, these lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever. I will come to your place of birth within 48 hours and document some important moments that happen in the hospital. This is not a traditional newborn session; I will not pose the baby or bring props or lights (well, maybe a muslin wrap and a letter board). This will just be me capturing your baby’s sweet new moments in a fresh natural way! I focus on your little ones yawns, their adorable baby feet, fingers, and of course the belly button with their umbilical chord. We won't forget first meetings with family, siblings too! Our focus will be on the quiet moments between you and your new little one. It'll just be me, capturing your baby's sweet new moments in a fresh and natural way. There are very few (if any) things more raw, important and emotional in life than having a baby. Those special moments in the hospital are so very precious – your little one will only be that little those first few days. For a lot of moms and parents the first couple of hours and days after delivery can be a blur because of all the changes, actual labor and post delivery. I want you to REMEMBER how beautiful the two of you looked as brand new parents. I want you to REMEMBER how it felt to look at your brand new baby and to DETAIL how fresh and new they looked just coming into the world. There’s nothing quiet like it.
