What happens if I have an unplanned c-section?
If you have an unplanned cesarean, and you’re not feeling yourself, we will do our best to schedule your session when you’re feeling a bit better. When you have c-section you are typically in the hospital for two full nights, which gives us an extra day to plan. Instead of scheduling your session for the morning after delivery, we will plan for the next day, before you leave the hospital. If you are still not able to schedule your session, we WILL work out a time after you head home. I do not shoot Fresh 48s in my clients home, but for special circumstances, I will. I hope that reassures you!
Can my older children be in the photos?
Yes! If there are siblings in the family, I am always happy to schedule the session around when they are able to be brought to the hospital. I typically shoot Fresh 48 sessions between 10am-noon, and sometimes into the afternoon. I make sure that my clients know this ahead of time, so they can arrange for their older children to be brought to the hospital right before I arrive. I think it’s so important for the older kids to be involved in this shoot! I have a lot of siblings, and I love the photos that we have of us together. It’s so special!
Do I need to ask permission from the hospital to have a photographer?
Nope! There is no paperwork to sign, or permission needed. I do suggest mentioning to the nurses that you have a photographer coming, so they know you’ll be occupied. The nurses are always so sweet about it!
