Sheltered Simplicity. || Newborn Session.

I had the honor of documenting this family's first days home. It was truly a blessing to be allowed into their cocoon for a little bit and observe the first precious days at home.  It was his momma's first day solo with her two boys. Sweet baby Luke-Cameron was born at 33 weeks. The NICU was his temporary home until he was strong enough to be sent home which happened at 36 weeks. This is him snuggled -at home- in his momma's arms at "37 weeks." 

In the sheltered simplicity of the first days after a baby is born, one sees again the magical closed circle, the miraculous sense of two people exisiting only for each other, the tranquil sky reflected on the face of the mother nursing her child.
