Fresh 48 Session Checklist

The Woodlands Newborn Photographer

Ashley Newman Photography

Megan contacted me shortly after we moved back to Texas- their family had another little on on the way and she was already thinking ahead to this day. I've had the honor of documenting this sweet family for years now, and getting to follow them through the birth of three precious boys is nothing short of wonderful. Full heart and full arms.

Judson and Neil watched cars go by, peering out the large hospital windows with grandma. They waited eagerly for a turn to hold Brent, which they did like experts.

Every time I have visited them in the hospital, there has been a quiet peace there. Thank you for letting me come into your space and for sharing your heart with me.

Fresh 48…What To Expect

Once your little one makes their big entrance, we will coordinate to choose a day for the photo session. Fresh 48 pictures are done in the hospital or birthing center that your baby is born in within the first two days of life.

If you have other children, please prepare them for our session as much as possible. Make sure kids know that this is FUN! My goal isn’t to get a picture of your child “being good” or just “smiling” but having fun and interacting. Some kids who have been coached to smile for the photographer get so nervous that they are fighting laughing and relaxing because they are so worried about having their picture taken or making their parents happy!


  • blankets that are special to you (made by grandma, embroidered with baby name, etc.)

  • hats or booties you love

  • going home outfit

  • plain onesie

Those precious first moments…

And now for the adorable inspo you need to see! Check out this Fresh 48 Session and let’s talk about getting yours set up today!

Let's be friends! Grab a cup of coffee with me and tell me about your family!
