I could (and maybe do?!), say this every.single.time I photograph new parents...there is just nothing like it. The raw and true emotions that I get to capture during those first few days or weeks at home are one of a kind. It's like when the groom sees his bride for the first time, the spark in new parent's eyes as they realize that the precious baby they are holding is theirs, and they try to comprehend this new love they've never experienced. It's palpable. Well, then of course, there's the baby!! I mean, come on, I could snuggle with those newbies all day!
I say (or repeat) all of this because this is exactly what comes to mind when I think of Jessi and Ashlie. Two new parents, completely smitten with their daughter. They were two of the kindest people to work with, and the way they adore their first born is contagious. You can see the love in Jessi's eyes as he looks at his two girls, and the awe in Ashlie as she takes in the life they created. Meet, Ellen :)
