I’m a proud member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers. Therefore, I joined their yearly birth photography competition. My submission was this Fresh 48 photo of my nephew. It was taken only a few hours after hew was born. I titled it “The Snuggle Is Real”, because nothing beats those very first newborn baby snuggles. I absolutely love being a part of such an amazing community. If you have some time, grab a cup of coffee or tea and be sure to check out the competition; so many breathtaking moments there!
