Sarah and her baby boy.
































There are very few things in this life that are on this level. Transcendent, mystical, miraculous. I could photograph birth for the rest of my life and I would be so completely happy. There is just so little that evokes this type of emotion and once you see it through your lens, its hard to go back to the daily stuff...

My favorites ones are always the first time the baby looks up at his mama! Time stands in awe of this moment.

Of course! I want to be there with you! But you have taken us there, anyway. I sense some shock and awe with this one! Did we really just make a baby?!

Dang it Sarah, it is 8:35 am and you already have me crying! I LOVE these pictures! Partly because I know and love Sarah, but they are almost reverant. You are incredibly talented. As usual, amazing!!!!!
