I had the pleasure of photographing my good friend and her new family recently. There is something special about watching your friend with her new baby for the first time! I didn’t know how special it was until I had my own child. The first couple of days are so intimate, you’re trying to get to know this little bundle and make sense of all of the unconditional love you never knew you were even possible of having for her. Even though it’s a whirlwind of no sleep, feedings, diaper changing, figuring out cries…the love you experience is surreal. I LOVE being allowed into new parents home to capture that love! Melissa and Mark, you are amazing parents, baby M is super lucky! Thank you for the opportunity to photograph your loving family.
