Jalyen's Nursing Graduation and Family Photographs - Waynesville Photogarpher

Can we all just pause and say CONGRATULATIONS JAYLEN for graduating such a hard program?  LPN is not an easy talk, and each one of the graduates worked their butt off to earn that degree. The world needs more dedicated nurses and I have a HUGE amount of respect for every person who dedicates their life to serving others.

Deep Roots - Terina's Family Photo Shoot

I met Terina technically BEFORE we even arrived in Missouri. When I found out we were finally pregnant (in Hawaii) I quickly switched to Tricare Standard so I could deliver with Dr. Foley, a very well known and lovable OB in Hawaii. While he wasn't going to provide me with a homebirth, I had shot three births where he was the physician and had developed a working relationship with him. I knew he would gladly honor my crunchy requests while making sure we had a healthy, happy delivery and he would be the attending, not whoever was on rotation. With my first a doctor I had never met before delivered her, and while I enjoyed his kind demeanor later on, it was a surprise to be told Dr. Hannibal would be delivering your baby :P

Upon arriving at Fort Leonard Wood, I had reached out to Terina as my other option would be Army hospital, and I had heard amazing things about her and homebirth in the area. We instantly hit it off and I consider her a friend and family member as well as a FNP and CNM.

Pumpkin Patch Minis - Andrea

This sweet family reached out for a model call I put out a year ago, and I giggled when I realized they lived across the street from me. Since then, we've become friends and I've been so honored to photograph their family from time to time. Joe isn't fond of family photos, but doesn't mind my methods (or lack of methods) when it comes to documentary photographs and lets things happen naturally.
