About the Author

Their minimalist approach and use of natural elements allows the emphasis to be on the newborns, resulting in a Zen-like simplicity.

Although each image is carefully styled, the babies look very relaxed and natural. The simple, tasteful design of the book draws you into the loveliness of each and every one. The quotes are poignant and not at all overused. As a professional photographer and designer, I was truly inspired and will admire the images again and again for their purity, creativity, and beauty.
The portraits celebrate the perfection and peacefulness of a sleeping infant, a phase which is all too short. In fact, most newborn photographers strive to capture the babies in their first 10 days of life. The images are interspersed with pages including lovely quotes about infancy, such as "When you have children yourself, you begin to understand what you owe your parents." - Japanese Proverb
The book is a visual treat, and with each turn of the pages you will be saying "aww" or "this is my favorite one". In fact, it would be impossible to choose a favorite - they're all so stunning !
Of course the poses are contrived, most portraits are. Each page will have you saying "aaaaahhh, that's my favorite" until you turn the page and amend your statement to "no, this one is my favorite". It is the perfect gift for the new mom or mother-to-be. I've purchased three copies and am now back for more. For $20, you can't go wrong with this gift.
Really lovely pix with heart warming quotes on the facing page. Some made me cry.
If you are a mother or father, this is a must have!
