launching October 2022
Fresh Baby Photography is a premier hospital newborn photography program designed exclusively for families birthing at Toledo Promedica, Toledo Flower, and St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio.
Tiana Lashae, an award-winning newborn photographer, wanted to create a fresh culture and luxury newborn photography brand for our local hospitals. We want families to feel relaxed and uninterrupted. Families can trust that their experience is our top priority next to documenting those fresh new moments of newborn bliss! Fresh Baby is not affiliated with any hospital. We are privately hired by our families.
WHY FRESH BABY?
-Stress-free and relaxed lifestyle newborn sessions
-Real-life Moments captured by a Real Photographer
-Professional grade Cameras + Equipment
-100% of our staff will be mothers; For Moms by Moms
-Women and Minority-owned business
-Locally owned and operated
To create naturally beautiful photographs of newborns and their families while providing an exceptional client experience. We also aim to become a pillar of support in our local community.
Giving back has always been a vital part of business for Tiana Lashae. There are no exceptions for Fresh Baby Photos! Fresh Baby will host bi-annual community baby shower events, fulfill random acts of kindness requests, and host giveaways for needy and expectant families in the greater Toledo area.
Fresh baby will also contribute to the economy by providing work-from-home opportunities for local moms, supplemental income for highly-rated local photographers, and getting involved with local initiatives that support women's productive rights, needy children, expectant families, and also social justices for the BIPOC and LGBTQ communities.

HOSPITAL GUIDELINES & policy
Due to Covid-19, the hospitals we serve have a very strict two-visitor policy. All visitors must be 18 years of age or older. This means that we can only photograph your baby, you, and one other visitor, as you must list "Fresh Baby Photographer or "Tiana Lashae" as one of your visitors. Children/siblings are not allowed.
Fresh Baby Photography focuses on the intimate and fresh bonding moments right after birth! Due to visitor restrictions, this makes it very exclusive for parents to be left alone to soak up all their newborn baby's details, experience
"first" (feeds, diaper changes, bath) milestones, skin-to-skin bonding, and all those sweet moments in between! Who doesn't love baby yawns, tiny feet with hospital bands, new baby hair, wrinkles, and unique features?
Fresh Baby sessions are extra special because your baby will change from week to week! If you want to remember those fresh first days forever, reserve your session today! You must be 32 weeks pregnant to book.
