Fresh 48 hospital shoots
My 'Fresh 48' shoots take place in the hospital up to 48 hours after your babe has been born.
I am there as a 'fly on the wall', to capture you as a new family of 3; 4 (or more). Its the quiet moments; the little details; the connection between you all, that I am there to capture. To help you remember those very early days of you and your new babe together.
To give you an idea about how this normally goes in reality. I will be with you around an hour in total; I’m really aware that after just having a baby you’re totally shattered but on a momentary natural 'high', so I keep this in mind and will take my lead from you on the best time to come.
There is no posing, I am literally there like a fly on the wall. I do use the natural light available, so would encourage you to turn towards the light / the window, rather than facing away from the light. Small things like that – but nothing else. I would encourage you to go about your normal business with the baby and visitors etc. And I stand back and document it all.
With this style of newborn photography, its important to know that I don’t do any major editing other than cropping and colour tones. Its a real life, honest, documentary of your family coming together at that time.
If you are planning a natural delivery then I would basically keep in close contact with you, so that once you’re in labour / had the baby then we can make a plan for me to visit. If you are due for a c-section then its slightly easier to schedule.
After the session I will deliver your newborn 'storytelling' video to you within 24 hours. We can chat about your music preferences for your video (if you have a special song, or a song you love, we can discuss the possibility of using that in your video. This is often subject to music licensing regulations but is something we would look into).
Your final images will follow 48 hours after our shoot. To watch (with a tissue to hand!) some of my recent Fresh 48 videos then follow the links to Mabel and Oliver below. These will open in Vimeo.
As detailed on my questions page, my rate for a shoot is 2400 dhs. For my Fresh 48 shoots this includes your storytelling video and all of the 'best' images from our time together.
If you would like to combine a Fresh 48 shoot with a pregnancy, home newborn or family shoot at a later dates, then I offer a discounted rate for multiple bookings.
