Baby Shower and Fresh 48 - Boston, Massachusetts

 Pregnant Mom at her baby shower in Boston

Melanie and I grew up on Cape Cod together - We ended up going to the same college and remained friends after school. I was so happy for her and her husband, Mike, when I found out she was pregnant and jumped on board to take their photos!

Melanie had her baby shower at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, MA. Her great group of friends and family were eagerly awaiting her baby! A few weeks later, after some long days for Mom and Dad, little Kai made his appearance and I've never seen two parents happier and more in love with their little man! 

 

Kai has been surrounded by love since the day he was born (...really since they found out they were pregnant!)

Fresh 48 sessions take place in the hospital and really are my favorite because both parents get to relax and it's so fun to see everyone in such of awe of their new little one! 

 


Because infants change so fast, I love capturing the small details that are so different in just a few days...Kai was only a day old in these photos!

There is also something super special about the "hospital" things that happen during the session - learning how to care for your baby, hearing suggestions, and adapting to your new life as a Mom and Dad...I love the expressions parents give as they're learning information and navigating their new roles!

One of my absolute FAVORITE things though, is watching the new parents help each other to dress or change their little baby! I love watching their four hands work to get the baby's little arms and legs into arm holes and leg holes...You can tell by their teamwork that they'll be ok. ;)

A Fresh 48 session lets your capture your little one when they're at their littlest! I do love posed newborn photos, but this experience captures the essence of being a new parent, at a time when you may be overwhelmed with joy and unable to fully remember all the details! Contact me to book your session - I travel all over Massachusetts and Rhode Island and would love to work with you!
