When my first child was born I went out and bought a beautiful $300 blessing outfit.  It was stunning.  The nursery was stocked with beautiful bedding from Pottery Barn.  And I couldn’t resist purchasing every single baby toy my local toy boutique brought in.  The blessing outfit was worn once.  The blankets one by one went to the thrift store.  As for the toys most were broken, some never played with and few are remembered.  I feel like this is a commercial for MasterCard, but it is true some of the things you buy for your children mean something in the moment (like the outfits), some things are favorite soothies for years (like the blankets) and somethings might hold a special memory even for a lifetime (like a favorite toy).  Beautiful, fine art portraits of your newborn last a lifetime.  They become family heirlooms.  Pictures from your daughter’s first days of life will perhaps hold a special part in a wedding slide show.  Mine did.  As I celebrated starting a new life with my best friend, I watched with tears in my eyes (crying now) pictures of my mother holding me and cradling me in her arms.  Pictures are priceless.  They are the treasures you run into your burning house to save.  And the tokens you tenderly touch in old age to remind you of a life lived fully.

All types of photography capture for life times our fleeting moments.  And of all the moments to be celebrated and remembered the arrival of a new baby into your life, your family, this world…should be something you want to document artfully.  When I look back at portraits of my third daughter (I don’t have pictures of my first two children), I remember.  I smell her milky sweet skin and the thought of its velvety softness makes me long to hold a baby.  I think back to my husband and I sitting on the couch an marveling at the cute little elfish crinkle in her ears.  Pictures of her with her Dad about to leave us after just two weeks of her birth to attend for several months long Office Basic Course with the Army, make me cry.  I think about the the beautiful close ups of her soft lips and I want to go back and kiss them.  These pictures of her are priceless!

If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle.  – Vincent van Gogh
