"Making the decision to have a child is momentous.
It is to decide forever, to have your heart go walking outside your body."
- Elizabeth Stone
After my daughter was born and outside the womb a whole new feeling of protection came over me. She was no longer safe inside, but exposed to the world. A part of my heart was, like the quote says, was walking outside of my body. Even though, at the time, it felt scary, it has been one of my biggest joys in watching her grow, learn, and become such a sweet and loving little girl.
I love reflecting with parents as they come to my studio for their newborn sessions. We all share that commonality of having a piece of our hearts walk outside our bodies.
I had so much fun photographing sweet Carlin! I remember photographing her older sister at just a few days old almost 3 years ago. Man, does time go by quickly! Here's a fun sneak peek from her session!
