Baby Abigale's Newborn Session - Fort Leonard Wood Newborn Photographer

Oh goodness! This sweet little girl was so tiny and so snugly. I got quite a few cuddles in between silly faces and sweet baby dreams. This is definitely one of the best parts of my job. 

When you hire a newborn photographer, make sure they're well trained in baby safety and posing. While there are

Happy 'Merica Day!

We decided instead to hit the pool first thing when they opened, and after a good hour and a half we headed home to get changed and drive to a friend's small bbq. It was nice and small, with good food and great company. The kids had a blast, and we shot off a few small fireworks before heading back on post for the big show.

The Birth of Raelee at GLWACH - Film and Photos

By now I'm sure ya'll know I'm pretty obsessed with birth.. and when Lexi asked me to be her birth photographer I JUMPED. It's been forever since I got my dose of oxytocin, and I adore her and her little family.

As she predicted, her labor was very similar to her first child's. Fast and furious! I was notified around lunchtime that she was going to be induced due to elevated blood pressure (she was just about 40 weeks) and to be ready to go in that evening. I paced a bit and packed what I needed, trying not to be overly anxious. Around 8:30 PM or so I got the notification they had checked in and were preparing to break her water, but not to rush.

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.
