honest, authentic, and emotive
vancouver fresh 48 photography
There are few (if any!) things more real, raw, and emotional than having a baby. But for most parents, those first few hours and days after delivery is simply a blur.
The Fresh 48 session is special because it captures those intimate first moments of your new family. It is a chance for you to remember the love in your eyes as you looked at your new baby. I want you remember how it felt to hold your precious little one and know how little they were in your arms.
You get to remember every little detail … the wrinkled and flaky skin, the tiny toes, the wisps of hair … every little bit of freshness. There’s nothing like it.
The test is positive!
When you feel the stirring of new life in your belly, and you know that your life has changed forever, you also know that this time is so precious, you want to bottle up every tiny second. I am on call for you the week before and after your due date, so it is best to book your Fresh 48 session 2-3 months before your due date.
The maternity miracle
Although I’m mainly a Vancouver Fresh 48 photographer, I also love offering Maternity Sessions as an add-on so you can remember the miracle of creating and carrying a life in your womb. It forms the perfect start to a incredible love story that culminates in your Fresh 48 session, blending seamlessly from one life stage to the next in your album.
The Big Day is here
Let me know once you go into active labour, and I will clear my calendar for the next 2 days. Then go and be the birthing goddess we know you are! Remember, you are already a mother, and your love, strength, resolve, and resilience will be on full display as people around you watch in awe as you bring this baby earthside!
It’s Photo Day!
Your Fresh 48 session usually takes place the morning after you’ve given birth, allowing everyone to at least have a few hours of rest. It’s a quiet, relaxed, no-stress session, spent simply loving on this new little star in our midst, and being quietly thankful and in awe of the miracle of birth and new life.
The Big Reveal
Within 2 weeks of your session, your full gallery will be presented in a tear-inducing slideshow. Watch (and rewatch!) and decide which collection to purchase. I’m sure you are going to love them all, but my commitment to you is always to only buy what you love, so choose the collection that fits your family’s needs best.
Let’s talk about art
Your photos are part of your story as a family, and it makes no sense to keep those memories sitting forgotten in a dusty corner of your hard drive. Every collection includes a print credit to be used on products to display your gorgeous family photos in your home.
“BUY ONLY WHAT YOU LOVE”
By splitting up the total investment into two parts, you are assured you’re only paying for the images that you love. Pay the session fee before the session to cover my time preparing, photographing and editing. Then, after you see your photos, you can choose to purchase collections containing 15, 30 or all the digital files. I include gift print credits so your precious memories end up as printed art in your hands.
This fee is non-refundable and payable before your session. It covers my time spent working with you before and during the session, including session preparation, capturing your photographs, and editing your images.
No photos are included in this session fee.
STARTING AT $500
After your session, you purchase the collection size that works best for your family. Collections all include a number of digital files and a gift print credit that can be used for prints and products in the online store.
The session fee is NOT applied to your collection.
