Fresh 48 Photographer in Maple Grove


Fresh 48 Session

These Fresh 48 newborn photos were taken only 12 hours after the birth of baby Fletcher. Highlights included capturing the footprints as well as his first bath and outfit change. The session lasted about an hour and took place right at the hospital.


In-hospital newborn photos are different than a standard newborn session. Typically the session takes place right at the hospital within the first day of a newborn baby's life. They also tend to be a little bit shorter.

My style of Fresh 48 photos is polished but I wouldn't say it's glamorized. My approach is primarily documentary: I hope to tell the real, raw story of those first couple of days in photos. "We loved her attention to detail and commitment to capturing honest, story-telling photos." (Ellen Z.)

I'm a Fresh 48 photographer located in Maple Grove, and I travel all over the Twin Cities metro for in-hospital newborn photos. I utilize the light available to create honest and intimate photos.


Though I've photographed in the hospital during Covid, guidelines and restrictions are always changing, so be sure to talk with your doctor during your check-ups to stay updated on your hospitals restrictions.


And here's a bonus! I know how eager you'll be to see your photos, so I deliver a portion of the photos within 24 hours of all Fresh 48 sessions! You can get in touch by heading to my Connect page or sending an email to

Some photographers have strict rules for when they'll photograph newborns. Some will even photograph the birth or come to your hospital as soon as your baby arrives. So what are newborn photos exactly, when should you schedule them, and when's the ideal time to take them?
