Ash Lark was born on November 25th to Lisa and I. It has been a joyful and difficult part of our lives. The photos and videos mostly reflect the joyful moments. They’ve been taken at the times where is felt possible to reach for a phone, and however much I’d like to see is capture all sides of the experience, it usually doesn’t feel right to take a photo or a video when we could be soothing him instead.
