{ Fresh 48 } Newborn Sessions

There is nothing more precious than a wee one just hours after they’ve entered the world.  Hint of Whimsy is now offering { Fresh 48 } photography – a special session for those families who want the first few hours of their newborns life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented.

 { Fresh 48 } sessions are an alternative to birth photography for some, an addition to it for others – regardless, it is a way to capture the new and precious moments that are often forgotten.


The session may take place in your home, hospital or birthing center and may capture the firsts { or almost-firsts!) such as the first bath, siblings meeting, first snuggles, and wrinkled toes – all unforgettable moments that pass in the blink of an eye! Images captured will be unposed, using natural lighting and without the use of additional props.

There are so many families out there that may never have a family photo to cherish because they fell on tough times. If you know someone who is struggling, someone who has lost a precious loved one, or a family trying to adjust after a tough trial – please share their story! We're hoping that we can help shine some light in their life & capture timeless moments to be treasured forever!
