A Newborn Nephew

One of my favorite picture-taking opportunities is of a baby on its first day of life on this earth;
on the first day they breathed their first breath.
They are so new and pure and clean (after a bath…haha).

Growing the baby, laboring the baby, delivering the baby…HARD.
Then comes post-delivery, recovery, and actually taking care of the baby, which is also HARD.

But. For a few minutes in between all the hard things there is felicity. There is awe. There is peace.

Those are the moments I love to catch and bottle up digitally, so we can remember them, in between all the hard things.
