How touching and precious are those images? If I didn't have baby fever as it is, this photo series by the brilliant Jenny Lewis would certainly seal the deal:) A few years ago after experiencing pregnancy and birth herself, Jenny embarked on a project of snapping photographs of mamas and their babies within 24 hours of their birth. Her aim is to capture the extraordinary bonding, warmth and strength between mother and infant. Also, there is a whole range of amazing emotions as the mothering instinct kicks in. The cool part is that Jenny didn’t know any of the ladies beforehand, so meeting them for the first time must have felt wonderfully surreal. Like entering a little bubble of bliss and coping with the new life :)
I’m curious, if you could, would you let Jenny snap your photo? xo
P.S: Baby faces.
P.P.S: Plus, babies and age.
