Filed in: birth, family, film, newborn

Although being in the hospital those first few days after having a baby can be totally crazy and you feel like absolute hell, there’s nothing like the magic of that first 48 hours. That time where your baby is so teeny tiny, the way they wriggle their arms and legs around, totally disoriented, like they’re coming out of a long slumber.. that time is truly SO fleeting. It’s gone in an instant. Which is what makes having a professional photoshoot of those first moments together when you first meet them so so special.

    Made a few of those photoshoots. If only people would be more open minded. Oh… and maternity hospitals also. Very nice photos!
