The birth of a child is not just a blessed event; it’s the biggest miracle anyone can witness. The portraits below capture the moment when a baby claims the victory of life as he is introduced to the outside world.
Photographer Christian Berthelot was inspired to portrait some newborn babies just a few seconds after birth. The result? Some of the most stunning photos ever taken.

It’s such a miracle to be alive! Witnessing his son’s birth was Berthelot’s source of inspiration for this project.
