National Geographic Photo Contest

5 Minutes Old

Photo and caption by Leilani Rogers

I am a birth photographer. This photo is of my niece and was the first birth I ever photographed (in May 2011). Since then my love and passion for this type of art has blossomed. However this photo, taken just minutes after Mama delivered at home, remains my favorite. I think it says a thousand words, among them that it is cold, bright and loud out here!

Location: Cedar Park, TX USA
