It isn’t every day you get to experience the amazing miracle of birth. Yesterday I was honored to photograph my sweet friends’ delivery of her son. Shannon did great and Little Cruz entered the world at 3:41 on January 4th. He was 8 lbs 6 oz and 21 inches long. I’m pretty sure these pictures speak for themselves.
Right when they handed Cruz to Shannon for the first time. Priceless.
I mean really.. does this not make you want to tear up a bit?
Proud dad and MiMi (Shannon’s mom).
Little Cruz… only seconds old here.
Off to get checked out for a bit. Praise the Lord for a healthy baby boy.
Dad cutting the umbilical cord.
He weighed 8 pounds 6 ounces…
…and is oh so cute. Shannon told me that he already looks different from these photos. He’s not quite a swollen now.
Mom, Daughter, and baby. So Sweet!
The next 2 speak for themselves…
Look at that sweet little face. Almost like he’s posing for the camera!
Partial Family photo (minus Carsyn).
Everyone left the room for a bit (I was kinda hid in the corner) and daddy said a prayer over his first born son. Starting out Cruz’s life under the grace and protection of Christ!
Love this moment between the 3 of them. So peaceful, so perfect!
Daddy loving on his little man. He prayed for this little boy.
Gotta have the little feet!
Mimi got a couple minutes with Cruz too!
Time for BIG SISTER to meet her brother for the first time. She was a little nervous, but warmed up to her baby brother soon!
Not quite sure whats going on yet….
She loves him already!
And definitely loves her mama.
First family photo! Many Many more to come!
Congratulations Shannon, Drew & Carsyn. What a blessing little Cruz will be for the rest of his life.
