My nephew Seth has arrived! After waiting so long for this moment to come, he decided to make his appearance a few weeks earlier than we had anticipated. We're all so happy that he's here. Mom and baby are perfectly healthy and doing great! I can't wait for him to come home, so I can photograph his newborn session! But of course, I had to take about a million photos at the hospital.
If you don't know, a Fresh 48 is a photo session that takes place in the hospital within the first 2 days of a baby's life. This is to document the very special moments just after baby's arrival without actually being in the delivery room. I don't specialize in these types of sessions, but since Seth is my sister Lisa's first baby, I had to document every moment I could. Harsh hospital light is definitely a challenge, so I have a whole new respect for the talented photographers who specialize in this area!
OK, let's get to the good stuff.
Welcome Seth Anthony Horton!
6 lbs, 14 oz.
Seth is the absolute picture of my sister Lisa when she was born. Everyone who sees him says he looks exactly like her. It's so wonderful to see how happy she and my brother in law Will are to welcome their son. Seth is my mom's first grandchild and my grandmother's first great-grandchild, so this is an incredibly special moment for our family. He is going to be so fiercely loved. Here are some more of my favorite photos of Seth's first 48 hours.
Stay tuned for baby Seth's newborn session!
