Brace yourself for an intense case of the feels: Photographer Jenny Lewis captures the incredibly intimate bonding moments between mother and baby. The aptly titled One Day Young features mothers with their babies within 24 hours of their birth.
“My aim is to capture the extraordinary bonding, warmth and strength between mother and infant,” she said. “In fact, the whole range of amazing emotions felt at that time, as the mothering instinct kicks in. Having had a home birth, I am particularly interested in catching this moment of intimacy in the home, where the outside world has not burst the bubble…”
The tenderness. The vulnerability. The sense that these new mothers would do anything to protect their young. The mothers really are beaming, aren’t they? It definitely puts everything in perspective, doesn’t it, friends? xoxo
