When I photograph a newborn baby I don’t get too into dolling them up with clothing or props. There is an inherent beauty in the stillness, the newness, the peacefulness, the wisdom, the fragility and even the cries. I like to sit with them and wait for their quick expressions to come and go. They have their own magic that surrounds them. They are perfect as is. They can be dressed up and when they are older, during playtime or Halloween. When they are new, life is simple and beautiful for them. I like to cherish that simplicity in their first photos.
