My friends Heather and Jen are expecting, and in case you can’t tell by the photo, they are ECSTATIC. Baby Elia will arrive this month, and I was asked to take some photographs to commemorate “BE” (Before Elia). I was excited and a bit nervous about the request, frankly. A relative newcomer to digital photography, I have had fun playing around with my new Nikon, but these were photographs that COUNTED, that held WEIGHT, right?
I needn’t have worried.
True beauty doesn’t require the perfect lens, light, angle, or shutter speed.
It just is.
There were several times while shooting these gorgeous humans (all three), when I found myself fighting back tears.
Their joy was just so inescapably palpable. It was contagious…like an overheard, infectious giggle. What a lucky kid. Her room is ready in rich creams and browns, munchkin shoes and outfits wait patiently in the closet, and her name in wooden letters adorns a small shelf.
Your mommies are so ready to meet you.
