I was so excited when I got the text that baby Rosalynn was going to be making her grand arrival! This was Amy and Ron’s first child so they had been waiting patiently for this moment! Amy was a champ through her labor — she was texting me updates throughout the day (even while she was going through contractions!). I quickly prepped my gear and had my bag packed and ready for their Fresh 48 session. This sweet family booked The Motherhood Collection. It is such an honor to follow alongside their journey capturing each milestone. You can view images from their maternity session here.
Images from a Fresh 48 session always take my breath away! These lifestyle images are taken in the hospital roughly 24-48 hours after birth arrival. The session is roughly 45 minutes and is meant to be very relaxing and natural. Once new parents come home from the hospital theses moments can quickly become a beautiful blur. This is where I come in! Some of my favorite images from these sessions are documenting the room, the atmosphere, the wrinkly baby skin, the hospital bracelets, the excitement of becoming parents, the soft hair of a newborn, those tiny toes, and everything in between!
I drove over to Henrico Doctor’s Hospital and when Amy answered the door she was glowing! She had on this beautiful silk pink robe, her hair and makeup was done… I was shocked that she had just had a baby!! Her room was spotless, classical music playing in the background, and sweet baby Rosalynn was sleeping in her bassinet. It was an especially exciting day because they got to go home that afternoon. I have SO many favorites from this sweet session!
Snacks for the nurses — how thoughtful!
