brand new real life photography

itty bitty | connection | legacy

 

All those firsts after birth are moments that can often be forgotten. New life, those first 48 hours of the fourth trimester can be a blur of movement and stillness. It feels fresh and exciting, full of family introductions between napping and eating. Having been there, I can say it is easy to forget with each passing day just how much this tiny human changes and grows.

It is my goal to slow this brief season down with images that capture the beautiful bewilderment and curiosity of learning to adjust to a new soul in your life. No matter where or how you birthed, or how you became a parent, these first couple of days are just the beginning of a grand adventure. The beginning of a new legacy.
