Last night saw the official launch of the first book by photographer Jenny Lewis, who contributed to Amelia's Magazine in print many times over the years. One Day Young is a beautiful, inspiring and unusual book that features 40 portraits of mothers with their new babies taken within 24 hours of birth. It's an amazing project that she has been working on for 5 years, designed to shed a positive light on the miracle of motherhood, during that magical period when women feel raw, alive, emotionally and physically battered, confused and in love.
