This is from my very first time shooting a First 48. If you don’t know what that is, it is a photoshoot done within baby’s first 48 hours of being born, typically done in the hospital. I ended up having to bring my two year old and the parents weren’t my actual clients, it was a gift to them from the new grandmother. Everything went pretty well, but wow – was it a learning experience! It made me realize how much I really love capturing those first hours with your little one and how special it is. My own experience is a bit of a blur, thankfully I have pictures to look back on. Capturing those special moments and giving you precious photos of your loved ones is part of what makes being a photographer so worth it.
