For the past five years, photographer Jenny Lewis has been taking some amazing photographs that ended up inspiring thousands of people around the world.
The idea was elegantly simple: take a photograph of a mother and her newborn. But the amazing part of her project is in making sure that the baby was less than a day old. In every single one of Lewis’ photos, the babies were a mere 24 hours old. Each of the mothers could correctly state that they “gave birth yesterday.”
Lewis eventually took 150 photographs of newborns with their mommys. It took a while, but she finally accumulated enough photos to make a book out of.
Titled One Day Young, you can purchase the book that shows 40 of the wonderfully expressive and inspiring portraits of a Mother and child.
Each of these little babies is a miracle, and each picture is absolutely adorable. The pride and excitement each mother has on her face is truly an amazing thing to behold. Motherhood at its most beautiful, in the opening moments of a child’s life, forever documented as the little baby bonds with his gorgeous mother.
While the new mommys will certainly have to change their focus, buying Gerber’s baby food or making their own in a baby bullet; or perhaps worrying about what kind of diapers to buy! Pampers, Huggies, or Luvs? At the end of the day the only thing that really matters is how much love the mother has for her new child!
Lewis really captured some beautiful images in her town, so please scroll down and take a look at a few of them! It’s always wonderful to see a mother with her happy and healthy newborn baby! What a great memory for these lucky parents to have for when their sweet little babies grow up!
Please SHARE these incredible photographs with your friends and family if you think Mothers are the greatest!
