There is nothing in this world more peaceful and profound than to be in the presence of a newborn baby. When time seems to stand still, if only for a moment, as the human eye and heart take in the blessing before it. Because as a mama to three, I know full well that new life is nothing short of a blessing. Where old and new, seasoned and fresh, big and itty bitty, ordinary and extraordinary intersect. When a newborn visits my studio, everything that was once on my mind before his/her arrival is washed away. And the one-week old, nine pound bundle featured below was no exception.
