a new life

My one and only sister had a precious baby boy last week. So if you're wondering why I disappeared for a few days, it's because I was falling head over heels in love with a boy.

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the birth story. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life, something I will never forget. My incredible sister fought through 50+ hours of hard labor for her son.










 















































Welcome to the world, sweet boy. I can't believe how much I love someone I've only known for 4 days. You are so incredibly loved. I cannot wait to watch you grow!

  1. I am sitting at my computer weeping. The emotion you captured in these very real photos is amazing Jenna. Any woman that has ever given birth to a child know it isn't all hearts and flowers, there is mind boggling discomfort and pain at times, but is worth EVERYTHING once your child is in your arms. 25 years later I still feel that amazing love and wonder upon giving birth to my daughter, Erin. You conveyed it all. I especially love the photo of your brother in law with his hands on his own head overtaken with his own emotions. Thank you for sharing this experience with us.
