Fresh 48 Newborn Photographer | Baby Hayden Arrives at Exeter Hospital

Fresh 48 Newborn Photographer | Baby Hayden Arrives at Exeter Hospital

I first met Maeghan when our daughters started going to daycare together about 2 years ago when they were still little peanuts.  Fast forward to this July and Alaina became a big sister!!!  As a Fresh 28 Newborn Photographer, I jumped on the opportunity to capture the first moments that Alaina got to meet her little brother Hayden.

Fresh 48 Newborn Photography is still a pretty new trend and it is one that I really hope sticks around because I LOVE IT!  Capturing that very first day in the hospital, siblings meeting little brothers and moms & dads falling in love with this new little person is just amazing.

When I arrived at the Family Center at Exeter Hospital to meet baby Hayden, the hormones were racing and poor Maeghan was crying tears of happiness watching her “little girl” meet her “baby brother”.  I gave her a quick hug and assured her that we were going to capture some amazing moments and that I was so excited to meet her little man.

Alaina did not disappoint and jumped quickly into the “Big Sister” role – feeding baby Hayden, singing to him and wanting to take him with her to get ice cream out in the hall.  It was adorable!  She even climbed into the bassinet to snuggle with him.

I am so blessed to be a part of these moments and humbled when my clients share how much it means to them.  Maeghan was so kind with her words and I just had to share them with you all:

“Jennie was amazing to work with in our fresh 48 session. I was concerned that having her take pictures while we were in the hospital would be too chaotic and stressful but I was completely wrong. Jennie was a nice friendly face who had us laughing even when hormones are raging, exhaustion is real and you don’t know what life changes are in store. She got the most amazing shots of our son and daughter the day they met and we have pictures we never would have taken on our own. I felt completely at ease as she positioned Hayden and the rest of my family for the photographs. My only regret is that I didn’t have her there during labor to capture those moments, her work is truly phenomenal.”

-Maeghan S.

Fresh 48 Newborn Photography | Baby “E” Comes Fast and Furious

Fresh 48 Newborn Photography | Baby “E” Comes Fast and Furious

Fresh 48 Newborn Photography is a newer type of photography that is catching on here in New Hampshire.  The In-Hospital Newborn Sessions are for families who want to capture the first few hours of their newborn’s life but may not want the entire labor or birth documented.  

This past July was FULL of new babies and I loved every minute of it!  I had gone away over the 4th of July and while I was gone…3 of my clients went into labor.  EEEKKKK!  When I got back from my mini-vacation I started with Liz and Baby “E”.  He wasn’t due for a few days but when dad texted me that Liz was “at the hospital in labor”, I was super excited!  Then, about 10 minutes later, he texted me to say that the baby was born!!!  Holy smokes!  Yes, mom had a super fast labor and dad almost missed the delivery.

I scheduled their session for the next afternoon and I was so happy to capture this little guy who was less than 24 hours old.  I arrived at Elliot Hospital in Manchester, NH and jumped right in!  Mom had just fed her little guy so he was a “happy camper” (cutest onesie EVER).

This little guy had the cutest “old man” wrinkles on his forehead and all of his little features were ADORABLE.  He was so happy…until he wasn’t and he not only yelled at me but stuck out his tongue.  LOL:)

After a little bit of loving and a nice swaddle, we were back in business! I even got a SMILE!

If you follow my work at all, you know that I am obsessed with baby feet.  I love everything about all of the little details and I swear that I could photograph them all day.  Honestly, I have no idea why because I hate adult feet.

Liz was such a great first time mama and I could tell she was going to rock this mommy hood thing from the beginning!  I love this series of her looking at him…there is no other love like it and every mother should have photos like this.
