There’s a quiet and an awe in the air of a home after a new baby arrives. It may not be a physical quiet (babies cry, after all), but it’s there; a sense of wonder that not even sleep deprivation can dampen. I consider it one of the highest honors in life to get to be the one to document that calm and wonder for families. The home is the nest; the sacred space where the intimate magic of family connections are born. So it only makes sense to photograph the realness of those connections within that space. In-home newborn sessions are pure magic for me.
