Madeleine was born at home to four siblings into the hands of a beautifully raw and real mama who let me come and document her in her first couple of days postpartum. I love these sessions because too often, mothers are surprised by how messy and fast those days are. After intense physical trials, you have a new life to care for and a new soul to learn about. Kathryn let me capture her real life, not life as she wished it was, and I'm so grateful for her transparency. Thanks to her, I can share wonderful images of newborn nursing, a squishy postpartum belly, the deep concentration of after-birth pains, and life with multiple children.
