Of the beauty that is a first breath.

Frederick Birth Photographer

It was my honor and great privilege today to photograph the birth of Matthew Ryan.  I cant put into words the emotion that was in the room during those first moments of new life – there was not a dry eye in the room (including mine!) and I am still shaking.  Life really is so beautiful. I have so many more images to go through still but this one of his first breath and his mama’s first glance keeps catching me in my place.

Welcome to the world sweet baby.
