my very first opportunity to photograph a newborn less than twenty-four hours old presented itself just last week, when my darling niece arrived two weeks before her due date.
holding her…well it was incredible.
she is soft. with tiny fingers and round-cheeked flesh. a rose-bud mouth. unspoiled and tender.
the new mother and father, gentle and mostly quiet. the weight of this little one consuming their hearts.
my camera lens taking it all in.
