newborns are incredible subjects.
it might seem they'd be difficult to work with because they don't 'do' anything, but it's quite the opposite. slow time to split seconds, and focus there. shrink the frame to just one tiny feature. be ready and be patient. unguarded personality waiting to be captured. it may not be the personality they wear for the rest of their days, but there is something present from the first moments of life.
they act without interacting. they emote with every facial contortion, every stretch of their arms, even in the movement of their toes.
these first days are fleeting. being given the chance to capture them, an honor.
