Baby B.

Grand Rapids, Michigan

Only days old, I was asked to document some of this sweet baby girl’s first moments at home.  I always feel especially privileged to be a part of something so precious and new.

The jewel of the sky is the sun, the jewel of the house is the child.” – Chinese Proverb

Baby Kessler

Lopez, Pennsylvania

In June, we converged to the little-known town in the mountains of Lopez, Pennsylvania near the corner of Maple and Maple to meet my nephew who arrived just over three weeks before. Just like the harsh winters of Lopez leave the buildings with a perfectly weathered patina, my sister Leni’s labor could compare. Harsh. Long. Tough. In the end was this perfect baby boy for us all to love. We drove from Virginia and from Michigan and slept in tents and on couches to make room for all the extra overnight guests. Bonfires and porch swings seemed to have more meaning with a swaddled newborn passed from cousins, to dad, to grandparents, uncles, aunts and back to mom again. Even with 720 miles between our doorsteps, may our shared stories, photographs and visits forever keep us close.

BABY: Eliza Jane

Montague, Michigan

Documenting when a new baby comes home is not just about a new life but welcoming a new person into a family. Watching Vera be a proud big sister and a couple Boston terriers turn into “guard dogs” was just as exciting as photographing cute baby toes. Congratulations Mott family and welcome Baby Eliza!

Hanrahan Family

They flew or drove from Illinois, Virginia, South Carolina, New York and Atlanta to one central location:  Michigan.  The Hanrahan family came for one BIG reason: a baby.  Thank you for allowing me to document this special gathering.  May Michigan become your second home in the years to come.
