Reese | Maine Fresh 48 Photographer | Stepheney Collins Photography

The first few days of having a newborn fly by in the blink of an eye, which is why I love hospital newborn sessions so much. I am able to come to the hospital, usually the day after the little one has arrived, and document moments that are both raw and beautiful for the family to look back on and cherish for years to come.

Fresh 48 sessions hold some of my most favorite moments to capture, and this one was full of so many sweet moments! Baby Reese's arrival turned this lovely family of three into a new family of four. Big brother Sawyer was so kind and tender with his baby sister, eager to hold her and give her kisses. I was amazed by his ability to soothe her when she was crying.

Thank you Abby and Ryan for trusting me to capture these first precious moments in the hospital for you. I'm so glad you'll have these images to look back on for years to come, and that you'll be able to show Sawyer and Reese the beautiful beginnings of their friendship.
