20 Images That Capture the Magical Moment Parents First Saw Their Newborns (PHOTOS)

Nothing can prepare you for one of the most magical moments of child rearing -- the first instant you lay eyes on your newborn.


Marry Fermont, an extremely talented baby and birth photographer from the Netherlands, writes about her First Moments project

There are so many emotions in this moment: joy, relief, amazement, pride, love, euphoria, contentment and so many different reactions: smiles and tears. Moments of silence and moments of extreme joy. 

Marry also suggests we keep tissues handy while viewing these photos, and she is absolutely right.
