Photographing Ben the morning after he was born was so much fun. I’d photographed Ivy during her pregnancy and was looking forward to meeting her newest addition. At nearly 10lbs, Ben was the biggest newborn I’d ever seen! Despite a long labor Ivy was joyful and beaming when I entered her recovery room at the hospital in Hood River. There’s something truly magical about entering a bright, happy hospital room where a brand new, hours old baby awaits.
