Hackney photographer’s call for for day-old babies

A photographer is searching for mothers and their day old babies who would want to be captured on camera for her project, One Day Young

Jenny Lewis, who lives in Queensbridge Road, hopes to eventually create a book and host an exhibition.

“What I am capturing is the strength and wonder, the pure energy and excitement of bonding with the baby they have just met,” said Jenny.

“This is about the positive side of birth rather than the sensationalised One Born Every Minute vibe,” she added, referring to the emotionally-charged TV documentary set in a maternity ward.

Jenny prefers to take the portraits in the mothers’ homes so they are as personal as possible and will in return give free access to all photos taken in the session which should last around half an hour.
