Every now and then you stumble across an image in your Instagram feed that truly stops you in your scrolling tracks and makes you pay attention.
Such is the impact of Texan-based birth photographer Leilani Rogers’ latest post, which shows a newborn baby being cradled skin-to-skin in the arms of her shirtless father, Hunter, sobbing with joy.
“This is a story about a mum and a dad who went through loss and persistence to get their baby,” Rogers’ caption reads. “That tattoo on his chest was done after their first miscarriage, and now his daughter lies her sweet head against it. Both of them a reminder of triumph.”
