Welcoming baby home is the beginning of a shared journey. These first few weeks are unfamiliar and a little jarring, but they are also some of the most precious, intimate, and vulnerable moments in life.
Documenting this time honestly is my way of honoring you and the beautiful soul you've brought into the world.
I first photographed this dear family six years ago when they were expecting their second baby. Back then, we spent a sunny afternoon on the porch swing while mama and Charlie savored their last sweet days together before welcoming his first baby sister. Over the years, they’ve moved houses and their family has grown. With each new transition, they’ve invited me back. And when sweet Virginia arrived this spring, I was there. Life unfolded effortlessly as the children showed me their favorite games and spaces and Virginia’s bath time and naps determined the rhythm of our time together.
