I’m not a parent, but I’ve been invited into many new parents’ homes to photograph them and their new bundle. It’s funny how different everyone handles their new reality. Sometimes new parents are laid back and seem to find their flow easily. More often than not, they’re overwhelmed and nervous. I mean, they’re literally responsible for keeping another human alive all of a sudden. Even if it’s not their first kiddo, they’re life will NEVER be the same again.
In all the differences in how people handle their change, one thing seems to be constant: this moment. The moment of total awe. Those little cheeks. The softest skin. The sweetest sense of just being present. To all those parents who have let me in to your little world to bottle this moment, thank you. My hope is that this helps you hold on to that moment. I hope that your photos help you to love your kiddos as they were, and for who they have become.
