Denver Colorado Maternity-Hospital Newborn-Birth-Photographer | Fresh 48 + Birth Story Photography » Alicia Wendland is a Denver Colorado Birth + Fresh 48 Photographer specializing in lifestyle hospital newborn, maternity and birth story photography. Serving Denver, Castle Rock, Aurora, Boulder and Northern Colorado

The very sweet Stella Mae was just born 30 hours prior and was getting to know her family in her new world. Fresh 48 hospital newborn sessions are incredibly special because they capture those brand new baby moments and also the brand new parent and family moments too– you know, those first blurry days when everyone is still getting to know one another and figure out their new life together.

Eager to get settled in at home, Brian and Megan were preparing to take their new daughter home that afternoon. Those first days make my heart squeal with excitement because they are so very precious, important, and yet so tiring. However, this beautiful family of three makes it look like cake.

Here’s a few favorite moments from their afternoon together in the hospital. Welcome to parenthood, Megan and Brian. And welcome to the world, Stella Mae. You are so very loved!

It was the perfect Colorado day that started with inches of heavy snow falling to the ground in the morning, had rain drizzling by noon, ending and a beautiful sunset as baby James was arriving into the world at 6pm. When I first met with Jessica and Cory in January for their pre-consult, even though their due date wasn’t until April, this mama knew her baby boy would be born in a snow storm– and surely he was!

Sweet baby James was born as the sunset light poured into the delivery room during his arrival. These parents-to-be took my breath away as they worked together to bring their son into the world and celebrated his arrival with an outpouring of love.

Truly a beautiful story, only the beginning for this sweet family.

This sweet couple is awaiting their little girl to arrive any day now and I think it’s safe to say that they are ready and eagerly awaiting her arrival right here in Denver, Colorado. They booked maternity, newborn, birth and Fresh 48 sessions at the end of last summer, right after they found out they were pregnant. Now that we’ve waited through autumn and winter, spring is finally here– which means they’re going to meet their Stella Mae oh so soon!

In-home lifestyle sessions are my favorite, simply because there’s so much value in photographing this season of life in the very place you’ll bring your little one home to. Someday when they grow up and adventure on, the whole family will be able to look back at this very precious and sacred place in time.
