As photographers we regularly get to tell other people’s stories. It’s something I think I’m pretty good at.
Occasionally, we get to tell stories of our own.

Tuesday 27th July 2010 began like any other day.
But it ended extraordinarily.

World meet Jonas :)

Jonas was born at 21:50 on Tuesday 27th July, exactly a month early! He was born around 35 minutes after Evelyne & I arrived at the hospital!!! He weighed 6lb 6oz. He’s perfect.

  2. Jonas!!! Welcome to the world!
    You have one of the loveliest families I know and your Daddy has just made me cry lots of happy tears watching your first slide show!

  4. WOW! and erm… WOW. Personally i’d say they were some of your best pictures yet. What a wonderful way to document Jonas’ entry into the world.
    How you were able to take them with all that going on i have no idea, how you got your wife not to punch you whilst taking pics of her in labour is even more of a talent :o)

    Congratulations to you Both, you’re family is just beautiful.
