Portraits of women on the first day of their maternity

Photographer Jenny Lewis shows how simple can be beautiful portrait of a mother and child. Her series called “The First Day of Life” includes pictures taken within 24 hours of the birth of the baby.
“Very often the birth of a child is surrounded by fear, ignorance and stories of pain. I’m also a mother of two children and I think it is important to show the lovely side of motherhood and beauty of these women. I like to capture the transformation of a women in a mother. ”
