Over five years ago, I traveled from Virginia to Michigan to photograph Amber & Troy’s beautiful November wedding. Their family grew with a spunky little redhead daughter and now they’ve welcomed their first son. When looking for more newborn clients, I was thrilled when Amber contacted me to document their newest addition. Such a joy!
There is always such excitement with new life. Chaos when there are pets and siblings and a change of routine. But there is this quiet. Quiet love in those moments of mother and a babe who has fluttered his eyes. One, two, three fast breaths which slow to a more rhythmic pace and a sense of victory wells up inside as she breaths that newborn smell with eyes closed. The quiet embrace of parents gazing at the new life in their arms. I love to be witness to all types of love in life. The crazy mad love. The subtle comfortable love. Love. What makes the world go ’round.
