One Day Young, by Jenny Lewis / Sunday Morning Art

DesignJoyBlog / One Day Young, by Jenny Lewis

One Day Young is a delightful project by London based photographer Jenny Lewis picturing Hackney-born babies during the first 24 hours of life. The touching and beautiful portraits of mothers with their newborn babies is the perfect ode to all mums, today and everyday, cherishing the extraordinary bond formed between the mother and the baby from the moment of birth!

These beautiful images of loving mums and their amazingly cute babies can now be found on the book One Day Young by Hoxton Mini Press. In the book the photographer shares 5 years of portraits of mothers and newborns in these precious first few hours of a life long bond.

You can check out more of these heart warming photographs on the artist’s website.

Happy Mother’s day!
