alyssa contacted and hired me at the end of last year to photograph her surrogacy birth as a gift to the baby girl's parents. i didn't know until i got to the hospital that the couple had travelled all the way from new jersey and that they have been hoping and dreaming of this day for three years. i seriously almost started crying on multiple occasions when hearing all of this. i am so incredibly honored to have documented this special day for them and for alyssa. the baby's name is "grace" and i don't think it could be more fitting.
