Being a newborn photographer is probably one of the most fulfilling jobs I have ever had (second to being a mother, of course). This photo describes pretty accurately why I am madly in love with what I do. How else would a beautiful moment like this be captured? The emotions depicted in this one image speak so loudly and are both astounding and beautiful all at the same time.
My husband saw this image as I was editing it and asked why, when I did our son’s newborn session, I didn’t photograph him and Levi this way. I hadn’t the slightest idea! I wish I would have asked one of our friends to capture our kiddos when they were born and hadn’t taken on the task myself. Ten days postpartum is a bit too soon for this Momma to be in work mode!
