Capturing Precious Moments: Fresh 48 sessions document the very first hours of a baby's life, immortalizing fleeting moments that can quickly fade from memory. These images preserve the raw emotions, tender interactions, and tiny details of a newborn's arrival, providing a cherished record of this transformative time.

RAW and Natural: Fresh 48 sessions capture the authenticity and naturalness of the immediate postpartum period. They unfold within the hospital or birthing center, portraying the newborn in their earliest environment surrounded by family members who are experiencing the joy and wonder of their arrival.

Family Connection and Inclusion: These sessions offer a precious opportunity to involve family members, including parents, siblings, and grandparents, in the newborn's earliest moments. They foster a sense of connection and bonding as loved ones gather to welcome the newest family member, creating memories that strengthen familial ties.


Preserving Memories for Generations: The images from Fresh 48 sessions serve as enduring keepsakes that families can treasure for generations to come. They provide a tangible link to the past, allowing future generations to glimpse the love, excitement, and anticipation that surrounded the newborn's arrival.

What Others Are Saying
From the moment I met Kortney, I felt like we had been friends forever! The way she captures images, specifically birth, is what brought me to her. She was so professional + kind throughout the entire process. She even went above + beyond to help in ways outside of her “photographer” role! What a blessing! We got our images back in a very timely manner + will treasure them forever! If you are looking for someone who understands the beauty of birth AND knows how to document it emotionally..she's your girl!
— Courtney
I was so happy to find someone that was just as excited as I was about photographing the birth of my baby girl. Kortney was amazing! She made you feel very comfortable with everything that she did and was very respectful of any personal wishes. I would absolutely recommend her!!
— Jessica
Kortney goes above and beyond for you. She make you feel like family and I just absolutely adore her! She finds the prettiest spots and works with you so well! I've used her for maternity pictures and now family! She's amazing!

What is the difference in a Fresh 48 + In-Home Newborn session?

The main difference is timing and location. Both being a documentary-style session; Fresh 48 taking place within the first 2 days of birth either in the hospital or at home, depending where you birth. An in-home newborn is similar but takes place in the first 2 to 14 days in the comfort of your home.
No matter what you decide, there are very few (if any) things more raw, important and emotional in life than having a baby. 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. They don't stay that little that long.

When should I schedule my session?

We recommend as soon you as you find out you're pregnant and know you want Newborn images, to ensure availability.

How does studio newborn differ from in-home newborn?

Studio newborn is performed with props and wraps and more posed than a lifestyle session.

How are my photos delivered?

Fresh 48 and In-Home Newborn collections are delivered electronically through a secure online gallery. Portrait collections such as Studio Newborn are revealed either same day or 2 weeks later; however you choose. This is your chance to all your/their favorite images and to take advantage of our studio-exclusive specials. The final images are delivered through an online gallery and product is either shipped or picked up.

What is a Milestone session

Our milestone package consists of 3 sessions scheduled at 3 months, 6 months (or when child is able to sit unassisted) and 1 year of age. These session can be as simple or as creative as desired. Session planning collaboration between client and photographer. Goal is to document the changes that happen between birth and specific session ages.

How much are collections?

Collections vary based off desire. Since we are a luxury, full-service studio, we offer more than just digitals. We believe in the old adage, "you get what you pay for". Some clients spend $200 while others spend $1500.
