The Birth of Baby Landon

Today is my birthday. But instead of writing a happy birthday to me post, I’ll talk about what I experienced just a couple days ago. I have a photography bucket list. Every year I do at least one project from my bucket list. One of them is documenting the miracle of birth. I can’t just go on Facebook and pick an expecting couple, and ask if I could tag along when they go to labor. But the Gensons are very special to me. Melissa assisted me in weddings and I had the privileged of photographing their wedding a couple years ago. I was so excited when they allowed me to document their birth a couple days ago. If you think weddings are long & exhausting, try photographing a birth, and waiting for 18 hours, always looking for moments & anticipating if the push is going to be the final push.

So enough rambling on my birthday. But this post it’s not about mine, it’s about baby Landon & his family. Dim your lights, turn on your speaker, and join me for the birth of baby Landon. After you wiped the tears & smiled with joy, share this movie with your friends & leave a quick comment below to wish baby Landon a very happy birthday!
