Fresh 48 Photo Session At OKC Mercy Hospital

Welcoming a new baby into your family is one of the most important and beautiful moments of your life. Not just your life but each member in your family. Whether you are welcoming your first child, your third or your sixth, those special first hours with your new baby are truly magical.

But those first sweet moments can also be quickly lost in the hazy blur that comes from recovering from labor, endless checks from hospital staff and the sleepless early nights.

What’s the secret to be able to remember those priceless moments for forever? A Fresh 48 photography session.

This sweet family’s Fresh 48 at OKC Mercy Hospital was a delightful and special time as the two older siblings got to be introduced to their new sister for the first time. It was a time of photographing that delightful new joy, curiosity and wonder of this new baby.

Seeing the awe in little ones eyes as they meet their new sibling is an honor and a piece of the story you want to keep tucked away for forever.

A Fresh 48 photo session takes place within those first 24 to 48 hours after your baby’s birth in the hospital or birthing center setting. It is a sweet intimate photo session, taking time to capture those dear “firsts” that you never want to forget: siblings meeting for the first time, the tiny wrinkly ankles and wrists with hospital bracelets around them, those first diaper changes. That darling, flaky skin to the new details you are in awe of.

I am a newborn photographer and I truly believe the wonder of a Fresh 48 is magic – a lifestyle type photo session freezing forever those first life moments.

And we mamas know how quickly those memories flee when you return home and get into the hustle and rush of life at home.

Whether you choose a Fresh 48 at OKC Mercy Hospital, one of the other local OKC hospitals or birth centers here in the area, it is a photo session that will let you hold onto special memories for years to come. You will feel that pitter pat all over again when you look through the photos. That newborn smell will come rushing back. Your precious child can see how tiny and how wonderful they were made. They can see the joy in your eyes as the memories come flooding back in.

And if you want a way to be able to keep record of your little one’s journey – my motherhood / baby collection is one of my favorites for helping you to record your story as baby makes it way from inside to the outside. It’s a delightful way to keep those memories and see that changes happen.

You can even start quite early with a pregnancy announcement session, then a maternity session, a Fresh 48 session and then a newborn session.
