One of the reasons that Fresh 48 sessions are so important is because siblings only meet for the first time once. Those first introductions in life are so precious. They are some of the most exciting newborn hospital photography ideas clients look forward to.
When my oldest two children met their baby sister for the very first time, their reactions were so special. They studied their new baby sister top to bottom. They exclaimed how much they loved her and were, “so glad she was out of mommy’s tummy!”. Moments I will never forget. However, even more special is that I can show them photos of the time they met for her for the very first time.
So when this mom asked me for ideas to include her children meeting their newborn during their hospital photography session, I was thrilled. These kids were excited to meet their baby sister. The new big brother was the sweetest and most enthralled. He examined every inch and just stared at baby girl’s tiny features. Big sister brought her a gift. She loved hearing how much this baby looked like she did when she was a newborn.
Their baby girl is now a few months old and the other day the mom texted me this, “We were just looking through (baby girl’s) fresh 48 photos, soooo special 😭❤️!”
