Those precious first few hours after the birth, capture them and cherish them forever. We understand you may have reservations about how you might feel after giving birth, but rest assured, we capture beautiful and magical moments with the new baby and family. Fresh 48 photography is a special session for those new families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented.

Magical Moments

A Barefoot Fresh 48 shoot takes place in the hospital on the first or often second day after your baby is born, before you head home. The session focusses on the beautiful details as you spend your first few hours as a family. Perfect for remembering that first day forever. Shots of your little one’s first yawns, cute little baby feet, fingers, belly button will be documented

One of the best things about the shoot is including grandparents and also documenting the first time a sibling meets the new member of your family. Hiring a photographer to document these moments leaves more time for bonding and less time worrying about getting the pictures yourself.

The images we capture are beautiful; the kisses, the hugs, the tears of joy, the tiny toes. We’ll capture snuggles, feedings, diaper changes, family and grandparents meeting the little one, images that will bring tears of joy in the years and months after the shoot.

How it Works

We are fully aware that sometimes babies come early (ours did!) or late, some have an exact time and day. It is very important to book ahead and get your Barefoot Fresh 48 shoot in the diary. We pencil in the due date (and time, if you have it) into the Barefoot calendar and when you head to the hospital you simply send a WhatsApp or SMS to let us know to expect the session in the next 48hrs.

The session will begin with detail pictures of the baby and room, so it is best if family members are not in the room at the very start. Try to schedule their arrival for 30 minutes after the session begins. Bring something comfortable to wear. For mum, a nice loose shirt, preferably one that allows for breast feeding. For the baby, onesies, swaddling blankets and a cuddly toy or comforter is great too.
