Things I learned after I became a Newborn Photographer at the hospital (Part 1)
成为新生儿摄影师以后学到的事 ( 一 ）
Do not take anything in life for granted. We thought the mother/baby floor is the happiest floor of the whole hospital, full of laughter, and the arrival of new lives. Sometimes it might not be the case, not every child arrives safely, some lives ended before they start. Also, not every child can be born into a warm home, into longing gazes that have been waiting for so long, into hands that are willing to hold them whenever they need it. Some rooms are so full of visitors, sometimes even 4 generations; while some room is so painfully empty, only a mother is there, holding her baby, staring at you but not really saw you there. Some rooms are contaminated with the smell of weed, while the most beautiful baby is sleeping soundly in the basinet next to the snoring father. Some rooms smell like the first bunch of summer flowers from Grandma’s Garden.
· 每个孩子出生时都是平等的，乍一看，他们多么相似。他们的重量，气味，笑容，好奇的眼神…… 是这个世界在这张白纸上画上色彩，把他们变成后来的他们。他们不知道什么是歧视，什么是优越感，他们张开各种颜色的眼睛，用同样的热情和真诚感受着崭新的世界。
Every baby was born equal. They looked so surprisingly similar.
Their weight, their smell, their smiles, the curious eyes…… are so similar.
It is this world that painted them with different colors, turned them into the future them – us.
They didn’t know what discrimination is, or superiority, they opened their eyes and felt the world with the exact same excitement and sincerity.
