NH Birth Photography | Lucas Alexander

I have been sitting here trying to come up with the right words to somehow accurately describe yesterday ...and ... well ... I just can't.  I am so humbled that Jen & Luke invited me into such an amazing day of their lives.  Photographing their wedding was an honor in itself, but the birth of their first child?  I have wanted to photograph a birth since I got out of college, and then life happened, I had my own babies, business got better than I could have imagined and it just never happened, until yesterday.  

Welcome to the world Lucas Alexander.  It is one of my greatest privileges to have been able to photograph your birth.  You have one amazingly strong Mommy.  (and your Dad is pretty cool too)  

Newborn photos to follow next week sometime :-)

Since I can't come up with the words, I hope the photos below can accurately portray just how amazing yesterday was!

Jen's sister was very excited that it was time to push.

Jen pushed like a champ for over 2 hours before it was decided that baby was just too big.  They had partially expected this, but Jen, being as amazing as she is, had decided she wanted to give labor a try.  
And .... it's a boy!

NH Wedding Photos | Fratellos Events in the Mill Yard | Patty & Ryan

Patty and Ryan got married on their FIFTEENTH anniversary! They started dating when they were 14 years old. What started as the highschool phonecall on the weekend grew into the amazing relationship we had the priviledge of documenting on their wedding day! Patty is one of those people I could sit and talk with for hours ... whcih is exactly what would happen when we met. Eventually we would realize we actually had things to talk about regarding the wedding :-) It was such a pleasure to get to know you both and we are so happy to have been there with you as you became husband and wife. I'd wish you many years of luck and happiness, but you don't need it; you've already got it! 


This series of photos is my favorite of the day. I can just hear them laughing together :-)

 I just had to include some photos of these two cuties!
