I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. – Psalm 139
My second favorite place to photograph (first, in client homes!) is at the hospital when a new darling baby is born. I love births and first 48 hour sessions. I think documenting newborns within the initial two days of their life is noteworthy–babies change so quickly and mothers are in such a haze and it is a very special time of first meetings.
The Read family is especially dear to my heart as they now have two boys – one through adoption and one through birth. I loved seeing their family soak in these first moments together and celebrate the addition of a new little brother/attack him with a Star Wars figurine. Congrats ya’ll!
