los angeles newborn photography /penelope

while I cannot fully speak of what it’s like first hand (yet!), it’s incredibly amazing to be able to peek in on a mother’s life at home with her newborn.

I spent a cloudy afternoon with gabby and penelope, her second daughter- just 2 weeks old. dad was back at work, big sister (1 1/2 years old) was out on a playdate. it was just mom and baby– adjusting to each other, figuring out their rhythm, adjusting to the newness of everything.

and it was beautiful. it was perfect.

I feel sheer wonder and am in awe of the absolutely BEAUTY that is present in a new life; a new relationship of parent to child. there is nothing more pure on this planet. and what an absolute honor it is to get to capture it.

welcome to the world, penelope. you are so loved.
