baby sophie




my favorite thing about
new babies is seeing the way
a mom gazes at them. 
how the baby in return is
mesmerized by hearing her mom's voice. 
i watched jana this week, holding her sophia close and witnessed how every particle of her
was focused on her tiny being. 
i wanted to capture it. 
so i can remember how to love like that. 
how to give my attention to another - fully. 
it's a beautiful thing that a camera can't
really capture.  good thing my heart did.

jana, age 30
sophie, age 6 weeks
