I do what I do because of what these photos mean to me. Photos help me hold onto this fleeting moment so that I can let goo and let him grow up. Photos help me see him: his interests, personality and feelings. Photos help me see us too: our love, care, and protection. They help me lean into our joy.

Photo credit is shared with Sam and that very first shot is by our doula, Therese Hak-Kuhn
