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.

Owen's Fresh 48 - GLWACH Fort Leonard Wood / Photos + Video

When you hire me for a fresh 48 photography session, I am "on call" similar to birth photography, but instead of showing up when you're in active labor I come to the hospital after you've had the baby. I do offer a package where I'll show up immediately after birth, but typically a fresh 48 session happens later in the afternoon or next morning depending on time of birth. Most mother's who opt for a fresh 48 enjoy having time to shower and recover a bit from labor and can even do a little makeup if they desire. Fresh 48 sessions are also great for documenting when the siblings meet new baby for the very first time, or if grandparents from out of town are traveling in and would like to be included in the first photographs. Unlike a posed newborn session, this is somewhat "fly on the wall" as I quietly observe how in love you are with your new one, and only give direction when needed.

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.
