Mark Thomas Alexander, a birth story…..

For as long as I’ve been a photographer, I’ve NEVER had a shoot/experience quite like this one.  I had the honor and privilege of photographing a life as he came into the world today.  A life that was waited on for 3 years.  A life that was prayed for, long before He became a reality.

Today, at exactly 12:23, Mark Thomas Alexander, entered this world.  I’ve had 2 kids of my own, but there was something so completely amazing about watching a baby being born.  I cried (out loud, mind you) like, well, a baby.  Seeing this tiny miracle from God was almost more than I could bare.  Almost. 🙂

Thank you John and Kendra, for allowing me into your personal space to document this moment in time for you.  When you remember his sweet birthday (also Kendra’s due date), I hope you will look back on these photos and remember how amazing God is and how blessed I felt to be with you.

Emma, congratulations, sweet girl!  You are going to be a GREAT big sister!  He is so lucky to have you to grow up with!

I know, I know, get to the photos.  (More tears.) Much love!
