Fresh 48 Baer | Ramstein Newborn Photographer

Being able to document someone's first pregnancy is one of my favorite things to do as a birth and family documentary photographer. The way your body changes and grows as you prepare for this little being inside of you. The way you change not only physically but mentally. It's no longer about you anymore, it's about him. The overwhelming joy you get when you lay eyes on that little thing that's been inside your belly for the last 10 months; that human that YOU created. He's the most beautiful thing you've ever seen! And don't forget the way he smells. I don't know if anyone has told you this before, but baby smell is intoxicating. Ok maybe everything is intoxicating. The way he cries out for the first time, his first yawn, or the first time he opens his eyes. Cherish those moments deeply, fiercely; our memories and photographs will be the only thing that's left when we're old and grey.
