Colby Martin, graced us with her presence earth side on a Monday afternoon. I visited with her & her parents at the hospital for a total of 2 amazing hours. Although 2 hours may sound a tad daunting, overwhelming, or maybe even a little intrusive, the extended time we had together actually made the entire experience relaxing & truly enjoyable. My presence only elevated their experience at the hospital which is always my goal.
I know how it feels to be playing a brand new role in life – the excitement, the anxiety, the confusion, & the purest form of joy. I am truly honored when I am invited to be a part of those first moments in such a special way.
Our time together was incredibly intimate. I have said this before, but when it comes to newborns, especially sessions that occur at the hospital, I feel like I am instantly upgraded to best friend status. I am in-the-know, get amazing access to baby & parents, & am allowed to be a part of their special experience.
