Photographing Newborns

I love my job! I know you get sick of hearing that but I can't help it! What could be better than to spend your days photographing those sweet little newborns? There is just something so fascinating about them. I mean, let's face it, they do absolutely nothing but they command the attention of an entire room. We stare at them for hours. It is not like they are doing anything exciting to maintain that level of interest so what is it about them?

I think it is because they are so tiny and so new. They have just arrived and are so fresh off the Heaven boat that you can't help but wonder if they still remember anything about where they were before. Not only the past of the babies but the future is so incredible to think about. They lay there vulnerable and sleeping while we stare at them and imagine the possibilities. Is this a future president, CEO, nurse or fireman? Will they start a family? Will they be funny or serious? What will be their favorite color? Will they excel in school or struggle? Will they ever know how much we love them, fear for them, would die to protect them?

They represent our past and our future. They are wrapped up in our greatest and purest of loves and snuggled in blankets of hope. Pure innocence as of yet untouched by life's hard lessons. They are the best of mankind.
