Giving birth is a long, painful, drawn out process (they don’t call it labor for nothing), but at the same time, it’s also over in the blink of an eye. The moment a baby enters the world is truly a miracle, and somehow the moments can slip by.
Which is where good old fashioned photography comes in handy. Both family photogs and professionals managed to capture these beautiful moments during babies’ first day on Earth.
