New Life

New life often serves as the moment when the veil between heaven and earth appears to be lifted, hope made possible in the form of an immeasurable gift - a child. 

Jaydene  Freund

The hint of a yawn, the curve of smooth new skin - new life. Few things serve as quite so tangible a reminder of the sacred present in our midst than a newborn. In capturing a shot of this new spirit, fresh from the womb photographer Jaydene Freund reminds us of the reality that forgivness came from heaven to earth in the form of a child - new life, a promise of things to come.
