It seems like I just became a mom yesterday. Though my babies are in school (elementary and preschool), I still think of them as my babies, and I still think of them as being so very young.
Until I see another baby, a real baby, up close.
And then I'm like, wait. My babies aren't babies anymore. They're legit kids!
I was absolutely beside myself with joy when I was asked to photograph a new baby girl for what was my very first Fresh 48 session. The mom is a photographer that I know well, one that I've worked with many times, so I was not only happy to oblige, but honored as well.
It is an amazing thing to be present for those first few moments of a human's life. To see those teeny tiny features. To hear those little coos and witness those little stretches. To see both the wonder and the exhaustion in her parents' eyes.
Thank you for visiting and please, feel free to view their photos in their featured family gallery.
