We found each other when neither was looking. We blindly met at a restaurant and fell madly in like with each other. Several months later we found out she was carrying a gift for me, one that I craved for many years. We didn't know if it was going to wear pink or blue, we wanted it to be a surprise for everyone, he was.
After witnessing one of the most beautiful events in my life I struggled to focus my camera through my rain soaked eyes. Our journey as a family started that very moment. He was eighty minutes old the first time I photographed him. He is everything I ever wanted in a son and more. His name is Connor Mahoney Blake, we call him C.
