Becoming a parent for the first time is one of the most life changing events that one can experience. Knowing that you’ve helped to create a life is flat out incredible. Watching the seemingly daily changes in your little one makes you step back and appreciate just how innocent and sweet these moments are.
I shared a picture of George smiling at his daughter on Instagram a little while back, but the feeling about that picture has still not changed for me. As I mentioned in my post, there is a certain pride and love that can be seen in the way he looks at her. Having kids of my own, I understand what this feels like. There are a mix of emotions that come to the surface, which some may not know unless they’ve experienced it themselves. I know that there is a certain level of fear that comes from being a new dad, but it’s mostly overshadowed by the intense joy and excitement that comes from watching your baby experiencing so much that life has to offer.
I’m incredibly grateful for this new family allowing me to capture this brief moment in their lives. There will also be more firsts for them, but I hope these family portraits are something they will look back on years from now that takes them back to such an exciting time!
