There's something magical about the birth experience. I've done it four times now and call me crazy, but I could do it another ten. To clarify-I could do the first 48 hours ten more times. ;) Ten more babies would do me in! But those first few days, welcoming a new member into your family, studying each tiny toe and staring into those eyes that are so filled with wonder, is an experience I'll never forget and will treasure for the rest of my life. It truly is magical and such a gift to experience.
My dear friends welcomed their third child into the world last week and I couldn't wait to get my hands on her + capture their love for each other. She was alert, calm, and her siblings were enamored with her. It was a joy to capture this family of 5 and will be even more of a joy to watch her grow. Here are my favorites from our morning together.
