JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A photographer hired to document the birth of a baby boy was just as surprised as the new mother and father to find the baby delivered in the parking lot early Wednesday morning.

"I am so honored to witness and document this extremely rare birth," Stephanie Knowles, of Jaiden Photography posted on Facebook. "He was born unassisted and delivered by his amazing dad. The parents gave birth to a gorgeous baby boy in the St. Vincent's Southside parking lot today at 12:21 a.m. and I was able to capture it all on film."

News4Jax was told the mother and baby will be released on Thursday.
