I get a lot of people that ask me, "What exactly is a first moments session?" It's essentially a non-posed photo session done in the first 48 hours of life.  I typically shoot in the place of birth (hospital, birth center, or home).  It's a great option as an add on to a full birth session or as a standalone package for someone that doesn't want the whole birth captured.

Mama gets some time to put on make-up and comb her hair, and siblings and grandparents can easily be incorporated for some really sweet shots.

Baby Ruby joined us in February, and her mom asked me to come to the hospital when she was just a day old.  She's joining two older sisters and whole extended family that loves her a lot!

It was such a joy to capture these first moments for them!
