Last October, I had such a wonderful time with the Lindenbaum family during a Fresh 48 Newborn session at the West Penn Hospital Maternity Ward in Pittsburgh, PA.  Little Baby E was such a precious newborn and I’m so glad I got to be there to capture some of the first moments of his life!

This family has a very special place in my heart.  Kayla is my cousin!  Mike is also my husband’s best friend.  Needless to say, we are in it for life with these guys.  So, when we heard about Baby E coming to join us, we were so excited!  

I knew I wanted to go in for a “Fresh 48” photo session with them as soon as I heard they were pregnant.  I had a Fresh 48 with both of my babies and they are by far some of my very favorite shots of my kids!  With the right photographer — ahem — a Fresh 48 photo session will never disappoint.  

Baby E smiled at me SEVERAL times during his newborn shoot and just had my heart melting!  He was literally the perfect little baby model.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a happy one day old baby.  I can’t wait to photograph him as he grows up, I just hope he doesn’t grow up too fast!

Kayla, Mike and Baby E, I’m so happy all three of you are finally together!  Baby E, you’re coming into such a wonderful family and I can’t wait to see all of the amazing thing you do.  Cheers, you beautiful family!

Fresh 48 sessions are very special.  After the final push, all you want to do it relax as much as you can and hang out with your new precious little light who you’ve been waiting 9 months to see.  But being this vulnerable and connected with your little one over their first 48 hours of life on the outside can give such happy memories.  One of my many joys as a photographer is taking these memories in the making and capturing them on film! 

If you’re expecting, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me!  We can get you a Fresh 48 session scheduled in no time.  The first couple days with your newborn can be a whirlwind.  Trust me, I’ve been there.  But in all of the chaos, it’s still just you and your baby — this little miracle that YOU created.  I would absolutely love to be there to capture that memory of you and your new little addition to the family on film.
