I don’t know about you but I can never get enough of newborns. They are so just precious. And I love capturing the love of a family as they hold their newborn. The journey to their miracle baby might have been a hard one but here they are as a beautiful family. I had the honor to photograph this family due to a gift from her sister.

And a gift of photography is an investment of a lifetime.
