i have birthed 3 babies, one unintentionally unassisted, and yet still, nothing could have prepared me for these moments.
i don't photograph births. my schedule won't allow it, but friends of ours asked if i could, and i am so grateful i did.
there is a lot of heaviness in the world right now. sadness and sorrow cannot escape our day to day life. but i want you to feel the moments of joy such as these. a new baby is such hope for the world, infinitely vast dreams in such a small body.
teach your children to love. teach them acceptance and compassion not because faith tells them to, but because it is truly and morally right. there can never be too much grace and humanity in the world, and i know we could all use a lot more of it.
tomorrow there will be a very beautiful story of this birth on my facebook page, but i couldn't help but share this image from stories and those beautiful new baby cries. ❤️
