Perfect Peace

Photo Group 101 Soft theme entry

This was shot the night my little grandson was born. Ezra Michael was receiving his first bath by the nurse. As soon as she started placing his head beneath the soft spray of water, he stopped crying immediately and looked so calm and peaceful. Shot in the hospital room under the warm lights, lowered saturation for a softer, more timeless feel.
