Capturing your birth story does not have to mean capturing the actual act of giving birth. As a Portsmouth NH Newborn Photographer it is important for me to capture the journey of meeting your baby in the way that YOU want. Whether that is a full on birth story where I am at the birth of your child or if you prefer a more private Motherhood Session. The Motherhood Collection is a great way to get those last images as a family of 3 before a new little brother or sister arrives. It includes a Fresh 48 Hospital Session or Welcome Baby Session at your home to capture older siblings meeting their new baby brother/sister AND then two weeks later, I come back for a lifestyle newborn session with the whole family (including the fur babies). All of our Birth and Motherhood Collections include a beautiful custom created heirloom album for you to enjoy each year on your child’s birthday or when the sentiment strikes.
Great Island Common in New Castle shares so many special memories for this family so it was only fitting that we have their maternity session here. Incorporating locations that are important to families is one way to ensure that families have an amazing experience and memories to cherish for years to come. Rhett is an amazing big brother and welcomed his little sister with open arms at Portsmouth Hospital one year ago today! Capturing those first few moments of siblings meeting for the very first time is something that you will never regret investing in.

After a cesarean birth, moms are wiped out from all of the medication, major surgery and lets be honest – THEY JUST HAD A BABY! As a birth photographer, I want my mamas to have the best memories of their birth and sometimes that means that I have to come back the next day to do those bonding photos in the hospital. If I am being honest, Fresh 48 Newborn Sessions are my FAVORITE so I just love coming back to capture these beautiful postpartum moments for mama.
Just 48 hours after Logan’s Birth, I headed back to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Nashua to photograph mama loving on her baby and I am so glad that I did because we got GOLD. Mom was getting around much better and enjoying every minute with her little man. Daddy & Grandma were there too and were the best support system for this new mama who had just had major surgery. #ItTakesAVillage
When I walked in the room, I immediately thought he looked bigger. Babies change so quickly! He had already changed and was just 2 days old. Those tiny toes, spiked hair and sweet grins are the most precious moments and I know this mama will treasure them forever.

Fresh 48 Newborn Photography is one of my favorite things. The first few days after having a baby are a whirlwind and capturing those early moments can be tough as a mom when you are healing from birth, learning to breastfeed and trying to get some sleep when your baby is sleeping.
These quick 30-45 minute sessions are a great way to capture these memories. Fresh 48 Sessions are a great option 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 session is held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby’s life. I will join you during your hospital stay to document your new baby in a relaxed and natural way for you to remember his first day forever. I take all of the fuss out of a newborn shoot and you can relax and just enjoy your baby.
How does it work?
- I will put your due date in my calendar as a placeholder for your session
- Once baby arrives, we will set up a time in the first 24-48 hours for me to come and do this quick adorable session
- The first 5 minutes there, I will rearrange the room, pick up and make a plan all while you are just snuggling your baby
- We use the hospital onesies and blankets so there is no need to worry about what to pack for your baby. Those details of fingers, toes and their little lips are all your really need
- I will get some shots of you and your partner with your new bundle. Don’t worry – having 3 babies myself, I know it is hard to get around so we will go at your own pace
- Siblings – these are a great way to document siblings or grandparents meeting the new baby! The reactions are priceless.
Now that you know a little of what to expect, I have a great summer special going on!!! $99 Fresh 48 Sessions!!! If you are due between now and August 31st and are delivering at Exeter Hospital, Portsmouth Hospital or Wentworth Douglass in Dover – contact me today and I will hook you up!
