The hours and days following the arrival of a child are unparalleled to any other life transition I have watched people experience.
There is a wave of powerful emotions, most markedly defined by joy, that wash over a seemingly everyday life and marriage and make it new. Senses are awakened (the kind that make you feel like a nervous 16 year old during those first few car rides out of the house!) and a love that has never been felt before takes over.
It's for these reasons that I love making the first set of lifestyle portraits when new life enters your home. Much like a bride and groom just moments after they say "I do", there's nothing that can replicate the first few days at home as a family.
