First Day As Mothers

12 Empowering Portraits Of Women On Their First Day As Mothers


For the last five years, photographer Jenny Lewis has made heartwarming portraits of mothers and their newborn babies within 24 hours of delivery.

Her new book, One Day Young, compiles over 40 of these beautiful portraits that show what Jenny describes as “the extraordinary bonding, warmth, and strength between mother and infant.” It’s Jenny’s hope that her portraits will shatter the fear that some women feel about childbirth and will instead highlight the deep emotional connection between mother and child. (By: Lipstickalley).
