From beginning to end, this wedding in Los Angeles was all about joy and love and happiness. The bride and groom were consistently so sweet, so appreciative, so loving — and not only with each other, but all of their guests and strangers they passed on the street. It was a real treat just to be near these two on their big day.
It’s the kind of celebration that kind of knocks you over — I laughed — and occasionally cried tears of joy — through the whole event.
The more time I spend going to visit families just after birth, the more I feel it’s just where I’m meant to be. The energy is quiet and electric at once. A whole new person has entered into the world, and that’s almost hard to process. These parents, these families, have been immeasurably changed, and being one of the first witnesses to the process is fascinating and beautiful. There is a kind of relief in the air that speaks to something beyond the end of the physical pain of childbirth. It’s a relief to finally know this person who is meant to change and form your family forever. This person you’re so ready to love.
