Sarah and her husband are some of the sweetest people you will meet. Ever. In your life. I met them and their son for their maternity session at Bowditch Point a few weeks earlier (which you can see here), and fell in love them with.
We decided to do Fresh 48 pictures, which I think are some really cool photos to have. Basically, you take them within 48 hours of birth, at the hospital, hence the name. It may seem like a crazy time to get pictures done, with JUST having a baby and all that jazz. But honestly, they are some of my favorite pictures to take and probably some of the sweetest memories you will have. When I do a Fresh 48 session, I try to get shots of the baby, shots of the siblings together, a shot with mom, a shot with dad, everyone together and then some detail things. I feel like these sessions lend themselves really nicely to an album, because of how the session goes and because it's a great way to display one of the most important days of your life!
Sarah and Stephen were so excited to welcome their newest addition, sweet Baby Ethan, and I felt so blessed to be able to capture those first few moments as a family of FOUR. Declan was excited to be a big brother and took right to his "big brother duties."
When you walk into someone's home or hospital room after they have had a baby, there is such an overwhelming feeling. I don't know if it's newness, or the sense of being complete....it's just a different, wonderful feeling. There really aren't accurate words to describe it and there isn't another feeling in the world like it. Maybe it's just the new life altogether, but it's a feeling I LOVE. Makes me teary eyed every single time.
Their family definitely gave that feeling. So humbled to have been a part of it.
Here are a few sessions from their Fresh 48 session:
