Who can resist newborn babies, from first attempts at a smile to tiny, tiny feet. To them, everything is brand new. To us, these are the mysterious beginnings of life. This collection of enchanting, rich duotone photographs captures the first wonder, confusion, joy, and frustration that these baby girls and boys experience as they discover the world around them. One minute, their tiny fingers grasp for something familiar; the next, they begin to explore, already preparing for mischief. Their perplexing and wonderful facial expressions, the light in their eyes, even their body language give hints about the very special people they will grow to become.
