Henrik's Fresh 48... aka Henrik's first photo shoot

duluth newborn photographer | mad chicken studio | essentia health st mary's hospital | fresh 48 newborn photography session

There are so many important little moments and details that go unnoticed in the first few days after a baby is born.  It is filled with a ton of firsts... first feeding, snuggle, visitor... on and on and on.  I may be a little biased, but I feel like it is all so important, that it should be documented ;).

I love when my families opt for birth photography, or a Fresh 48 session, because it gives that family to document some of those firsts.  I especially love documenting "the calm AFTER the storm".  Everyone is really tired, but even more in love with their newest family member.  There is a flurry of visitors, and everyone is so blissful.  Who wouldn't want to be around that?!

I arrived to Essentia Health | St. Mary's Hospital to meet little Henrik for the first time... and can I just say that the little cheeks on this handsome fella were out of this world!  I was having a hard time resisting the urge to just grab him and cuddle him!  I powered through though, as I knew he was going to be back at our Duluth studio in a couple days for his newborn photo session!  I love this little family!
