Whenever I meet a new babe I find myself conversing less, moving slower, and taking in the surroundings in ways that don’t typically happen for me with older kids. I become captivated by the new little body that is in front of me for a few hours and can’t help but smile inside knowing this is why our lives have meaning. The people we meet in this lifetime, the characters we connect with, they are so dang special and little babes are the purest example of that. I am constantly reminded that there are so many important facets of life that revolve solely around those we surround ourselves with and I am grateful for all the opportunities that come before me. Photographing newborns is no easy task, but if it reminds me to slow down and soak up the goodness in this world AND I get to cuddle little squishy bodies ~ then I’m all for it!
