Newborn Lifestyle Fresh 48 Photography | Gilbert, Phoenix Arizona

Welcome to Cherry Blossom Photography! We are Phoenix and East Valley Arizona based photographers who specializes in all things mama and baby. Fresh 48 and Newborn Lifestyle photography for your families needs!


What is a fresh 48 session?

FRESH 48 PHOTOGRAPHY is a special session for families who would like new little’s first few hours captured without documenting their entire labor and birth story. This session can also be added on to your birth photography session; your birth photographer will come back within the first 48 hours of baby’s life and capture special sibling or grandparent moments, as well as images of the family once mom is rested! These documentary style sessions are perfect for remembering all of those sweet, once in a lifetime moments forever.  Your photographer will capture shots of babe’s first yawns, wrinkly baby feet, tiny fingers and toes…first feedings…diaper changes…We will also capture those quiet, intimate moments between you and your new little one. Note that this is not a traditional newborn session and, as such, we do not bring props or lights or pose baby. We will capture your baby’s sweet new moments in an organic, natural way!

NEWBORN LIFESTYLE sessions are similar to a Fresh 48 in that the same sweet, newborn essence is captured. The timing, however, is a bit more flexible. Typically, shot within the first few weeks of life, newborn lifestyle sessions are shot in the home and capture the new family in its home environment. We would still love a call when babe is born, so as to schedule the session as easily as we can!
