i never tire of spending sleepy mornings with new families. it’s like time stands still that first week of your new world after having a baby. i’m so lucky that i get to jump in and bask in that palpable joy, holding and smelling your new baby while recording images that your foggy sleep-deprived new-baby brain would never remember from your first days home. this job is second only to an opportunity to be at the actual birth, using my doula training, watching those first seconds of breath. i can’t seem to make that unpredictable profession fit my current stage of life, so for now, gimme all your newborns and let me watch them grow over the next few years. i’m more than thrilled to make images of your journey <3
i got to celebrate elizabeth’s one week birthday with her.
