when your love makes a love of their own ...

I am so lucky in my job to be surrounded by so much love and good feeling pretty much all of the time. No matter if it is in my photography work, or my work as a nurse looking after newborns and their families, the vibe is generally a very positive one! As my own kids have got older and started lives of their own as adults I often will ask the grandparents that I meet "what's it like? Is it like when you have your own kids? Is the love the same?" 

Well ... at the start of this year I got to find out first hand! My gorgeous Jess and her equally gorgeous man, Will, had their first baby and I was lucky enough to be invited in to their birth space to support them throughout the birth and their first few weeks at home. I still get all goosey thinking about it. It was the most amazing experience EVER!! It gave me a whole new respect for them as a couple and for my darling girl as a woman & mother. The love and connection between these two is just incredible and it goes without saying that they are both so in love with their baby girl. 

As a grandparent I am totally smitten! Its an overwhelming love not just for this tiny human but for her mama as well. She is an amazing mother and I am just loving watching their little love story unfold...
