Sweet Family

I had the immense pleasure of photographing the Alexander family last week. Lakeyshia Alexander had just given birth to her sweet new baby, Khalip on August 8, 2011.He weighed 8 lbs 7oz and was 21 inches long. He also has a big brother named Bryce. Bryce was so helpful and sweet the entire time we shot.
And it looks like he is already the best older brother EVER!
As beautiful as this family is, it isn't complete without dad, who's been overseas fighting for our country. When I arrived last week to shoot these pictures, Lakeyshia told me that he would be returning home on September 10 to rejoin his family and meet his new son. I was so elated to hear this for them! There is so much love in this family for one another, and I am ecstatic to get the chance to get a family portrait for them once he gets back!


And as sweet and precious as brotherly love is, it is possibly even more precious to see a mother's love for her boys. 
It was such a pleasure meeting this family! And you can check out their entire slideshow here.
