When I knock on the doors on the post delivery floor of the hosptials, it always a different experience. Some parents are exhuberant, others exhausted and overwhelmed. These families were excited and one family was prepared, the others happily surpirsed at what this Gaga photographer, me, had to offer! I’ve been called the baby whisperer by many new families!
Fresh 48 is a series of images artistically captured just 24 - 48 hours after the trauma of birth. Parents and siblings are at their most vulnerable. It’s an honor to be able to be there to bear witness to these precious moments. I find myself comforting and reassuring parents and easing some siblings into acceptance.
