Do I need permission from the hospital?

Please ask and ensure photographers are allowed. In almost all cases they are treated as regular visitors so it’s generally okay.

Can I book a {Fresh 48} session without booking any other session?

{Fresh 48} sessions are available to mummies and daddies who have booked any Newborn Collections with us.

How long will you be there?

A session typically takes up to 1 hour and 30 minutes (90 mins).

When do you think is the best time for photographs?

It’s best to do them during the day between 10 am-12 pm of in the early afternoon between 2-4 pm.

When should I contact you to come?

Please contact us after you go into labor or when you’re on the way to the hospital so we can ensure availability for the suggested time-frame.

What if labor takes longer than expected? 

That’s perfectly fine! Just let us know when your little one arrives and we can schedule from there – regardless of labor length.

What does lifestyle and documentary style mean?

This means that there is little to no posing involved, with the intention to capture things as they are. We will likely not interrupt a beautiful moment to move one hair out of your face or tell you to tilt your head a different way, and that’s okay. We will be there to guide the session but the goal is for you to imagine that we’re not there in the room.

What if my baby needs to be in the NICU?

We will need to stay in touch. In the event that we are unable to photograph the {Fresh 48} as planned due to these circumstances your deposit/payment will be applied to a future session.

Do I need to bring anything special to the hospital for my session?

Babies look great in just a diaper or a white onesie. You may pack an extra shirt for dad (white, grey, or neutrals look best) and mom could put on some basic makeup such as lip gloss, mascara and blush, if your prefer. You don’t need to wear makeup during the session, but some mummies seem to like to freshen up a bit.

What if I deliver early?

We will do our best to accommodate your session, but please keep us informed as soon as you suspect an early delivery. Also, we typically reserve a slot 2 weeks before your EDD, since most babies tend to arrive a couple of weeks early.

What is your cancellation policy?

Full payment is required to reserve your spot, and if you cancel, this is non-refundable. However, we do sometimes allow session fees to be transferred to offset future sessions, such as baby milestone sessions.

If you can’t make it due to an unexpected emergency, will I get a refund?

If we can’t make it to your session for any reason whatsoever, we will refund the full amount paid for your {Fresh 48} session or use it to offset a future session.

Will hospital staff be in pictures?

Our intention is to photograph baby, and immediate family. So no.
