Watching the look of amazement, appreciation and wonder in the eyes of brand new parents as they admire their baby is one of my all time favorite things. As a mom, I've been there. I cried happy tears in those early days holding our babies -- and still do -- out of pure thankfulness God chose my husband, Zach, and me to raise two of His children here on Earth. It's just such a miracle as a mom to feel that baby move in your belly then hold them in your arms once they enter the world. You experience a feeling of "I've known you from the moment you were conceived" paired with "I'm meeting you for the first time."
Capturing the raw emotion of the first few weeks of a baby's life -- especially for new parents -- is a special thing. Let's be honest, these photos will probably be the majority of what they remember because that newborn phase is a sleepless, milk scented fog...a blissful fog, but a fog nonetheless. This sweet family is soaking in their little blessing. Baby Compton is one lucky little dude to have such loving parents. Congratulations, Compton family of three!
