The Wonder…

Yes, it’s a Saturday night and I’m working which may seem boring, but not when I’m looking at images of a mother and her new baby girl. I get to relive the awe and wonder, the heart-throbbing, palpable love we feel when we look in the eyes of our newborns – especially our first-born. Just this one photo says so much…I asked momma to lift her baby up to look at her. She lifted…and momma gasped with joy, exclaiming “(baby!) do you like that?” It was the first time she had lifted her in that way, and it was so fulfilling to witness that tiny moment that this mother and daughter shared. The first of so many meaningful – and fleeting – moments mothers experience. These moments fill my heart with joy. Thank you, Lara, for having me to your home to document this amazing (and exhausting) time of your life!
