You can never *quite* explain to expectant parents just how their life is set to change. Yes, there are the sleepness nights of course (and everybody will tell you about those!), the constant feeding, changing of nappies, the fact that NO newborn wants to sleep in their crib or basket… and so on. But what is very difficult to actually put into words is quite how much they will rock your world. Completely on its axis. Oh Yes.
I always feel truly priviledged when I get to meet people who have just undergone this change with the arrival of their very first baby. To be invited into their little bubble of wonder, witness those amazing parental bonds, and get to capture all those little moments of the beginnings of a new journey of parenthood. Portraits that they will truly treasure for a lifetime as their child grows.
Unbelievable really that a little scrunched-up very small human being can have such a profound effect…. one thing is for sure, life will never be quite the same again. The funny thing is, however tough it gets at times being a parent, you will never actually want life to be the same as it was before.
I did warn you it was difficult to put into words! Hopefully the pictures can do the talking…. enjoy.
