Photographer, twin mama, and sushi connoisseur.  I'm so glad you're here, and I hope you'll stick around and enjoy these blog posts!


Bane Alan | Stafford VA | Birth Photographer

I probably sound like a broken record, every time I sit down to write a new blog post about a family, a new baby, or an engaged couple I find myself at a loss for words. Many times, in my opinion, the pictures speak for themselves. In this case I am still in sheer amazement that I got to witness this little man come into the world. I haven’t witnessed many births, so I am no expert, but I do know that Amanda truly amazed me, and everyone who was there supporting her with her strength and determination. I remember her mom telling her at one point “they don’t call it labor for nothing”  and let me tell you, she WORKED to bring her little boy into this world! It was so sweet to see Robby by her side supporting her through the entire labor, you can see how much Robby lit up when his little boy was finally here holding his hand!
Amanda and Robby I can’t tell you how truly  thankful I am that I got to capture Bane’s birth for you guys. I hope you love these images as much as I do! PS- do you recognize the song?! I had to incorporate Disney somehow!
