BSM ~ Newborn Beauty

Here is one of my favorite shots from the homebirth I photographed this week.
Amazing, that just a couple hours earlier, he was inside his mother.

How small the little wonder is. I really like that you can see the fathers ring and size of his hand compared to the baby.
What a great experience to be at the home birth.

i gave birth to both of my girls at home, they are now 8 and 7 and i sure wish i would have had a photographer there to document it! my husband did a video the first time but it hardly covers it. and barely any photos. the 2nd time NOTHING! he was too into the moment! and we didn't get ANY photos for awhile either! not sure what the heck we were doing! if i ever give birth again, i will be sure to have someone there to capture it! great job!

Beautiful photo. I always think the same thing when I see a newborn. It's hard to believe they were just inside the womb. Very amazing.

It's such a gorgeous shot, and shows so much in a simple way.
