If you know Brooke, you know she has this gentle, easy going side to her. She also has a very spunky and outgoing personality, but you really get the best of both worlds with her. When we had her Maternity Session, she was glowing the entire time. Such a stunning Mama-to-be.

When she asked me to do a Fresh 48 Session, I was over the moon! These sessions are so raw, real and emotional. It’s moments like these you don’t get back.

I remember how I felt right after I had my daughter. My face was swollen, I was sore, tired and scared to death to be discharged from the hospital. I still remember how I felt but I don’t have very many pictures of Elseigh and I during those first few hours of life. The typical cell phone shot but let’s be honest, a cell phone does more harm to your appearance than good.

I so desperately wish I had a photographer come in and capture all of those tiny memories I would soon forget and never get back.

If you’re on the fence about booking a Fresh 48, I absolutely recommend it. If you never want to share them with the world, totally fine, but think of having these images when your baby is heading off to college. It’s memories that you can’t get back, and that’s priceless.

Brooke, it is so easy to see how much you already love that little boy. Continue to pour your heart into him and he will grow up to be one amazing human being.  I can’t wait to continue watching y’all grow together.
