There’s something extraordinary about walking into a hospital room and meeting a tiny “just hours old” baby. I’ve always thought so. Maybe after having a little one myself I see and feel it even more now. There’s the proud daddy and the glowing but exhausted mama and you can immediately feel the weight and the beauty of that moment. A new life. A warrior mama who has just done something pretty incredible. Sweet little eyes seeing the world for the first time. A family that just grew. Hearts expanded. Even energetic toddlers understand. The big brother and sister were so gentle with their new sibling and big sis couldn’t stop gazing and brushing her hair. I absolutely loved my time with this beautiful family. Thank you again for allowing me to capture the raw, the real, the first moments of your family of five and your new precious baby girl!
