A couple of weeks ago on a beautiful Saturday morning I headed down to The Ohio State University Hospital to do a Fresh 48 session with my wonderful neighbors. OSU is such a wonderful hospital with great staff. I always pause for a minute before I enter the hospital rooms before a birth session or a Fresh 48 session. I feel like I am entering sacred ground. And I am! A new life is so awe-inspiring and special. I am so honored to be a part of it in my very small way. As I entered the room I found mom peacefully sitting with her new baby girl.
Mom had quite an eventful labor and restless night but she looked beautiful and so happy with her new little baby. We chatted for a while and snapped some pictures while we waited for dad and the big sisters to come to visit.
Biggest sis was so excited to see her new sister. She wanted to hold and talk to her at all times. It was so easy to see that she is going to be such a big help to mom.
Second big sis was not so sure about giving up her spot as mommy’s baby. She wanted mom to herself but eventually she warmed up to the baby. She, too, began bestowing kisses and participated in baby A’s first of many sister hair salon games.
Dad took it all in stride. You can tell how much he loves his girls and they are lucky to have such an attentive dad.
I just love Fresh 48 photography sessions. It is so awesome to be able to capture those first days of life as a new family. I don’t need to pose or direct. I just capture the scene as it unfolds. Baby A is so lucky to be in this family. You can already tell how loved and cherished she will be.
Welcome to the world Baby A!
