I was so excited to go to Halifax in Volusia for a Hello World session. I haven't been to this hospital before, and it was absolutely gorgeous. When I arrived to the room, I met the sweetest family, and the most precious bundle of perfectness. Sweet Ruby James was born weighing almost 9 pounds. She was so alert, and kept eye contact with her mom almost the entire time I was there. It was so sweet how over the moon and smitten Ruby and her mom were for each other. The love and elation of a new baby filled the room. I just love the details of hospital sessions. Things like the small piece of the umbilical cord, where she sustained life and nutrition from her mother. The hospital bands for security. The clear bassinet, blanket, and white shirt, all a staple of a brand new life in the hospital. Wrinkly toes, they plump up in a few days, but I surely love how they look right after birth. The first days are such a whirlwind of love, tiredness, happiness, exhaustion, and pure bliss. I am so blessed to document this time for this family. Hello world, meet Ruby James.
