It is truly such an incredible honor when I get the opportunity to capture a bit of time in the first few days of a newborn's life with their family. There's the haze of sleepiness, trepidation and oodles of awe and love. It's such a special time when the baby is still so very small and wonderfully squishy and sleepy and it goes by in the flash of the eye. I love capturing these moments in photos for the family to hold onto as they watch their baby grow bigger and bigger, seemingly by the minute.
It's sometimes a crazy experience watching friends you've known for years and years have their first child. I've known Mary and Kurtis since college so I've partied with them, watched them get married, shared meals, experienced all of us moving to New York City and shared loads of conversations with them. Yet there's nothing quite so special as watching them take their first steps into parenthood.
