I met Liz when I had the amazing opportunity to photograph Jes & Andy’s wedding in Mexico. We were the only two there for a week without our significant others, so naturally we became each other’s date for everything! About two days into the trip, I felt like I had known Liz for a lifetime and we were instant friends!
Fast forward a couple years and and I get a call, earlier than expected, that Tom & Liz are heading to the hospital to have a baby! Alexandra was born a month early and because her lungs were a little underdeveloped and she had fluid in them, she was transported to Children’s Hospital shortly after birth. It broke my heart to photograph Tom and Liz crying as they watched their little girl leave the hospital with the paramedics, but I knew that this was all part of their story and someday Alexandra will want to see how the morning unfolded and just how much her parents loved her & ached to be with her.
Alexandra is home and healthy! She was such a little fighter and determined to get home… she only spent a few days up at Children’s!
I almost forgot the most amazing part of this whole birth… Tom actually helped deliver Alexandra! It was so amazing to watch a father help deliver his daughter and place her on Liz’s chest!
