This was my third time working with Keturah and her family, and I hope it won't be the last! She recently received orders after killing it at her school here at fort leonard wood, and I'll be so sad to see them leave, but I am excited to see what the future holds for them!

Hawaii Sessions: The Wizinsky Family

Oh man, Lindsey and Jordan were some of my very first clients and we developed a pretty awesome friendship while I was still in Hawaii. I photographed their oldest for milestones and family functions, and then right when I found out I was pregnant with my third child Lindsey messaged me to announce her own pregnancy! She was one month ahead of me, and I was so sad not to be on the island when she gave birth to sweet baby two. Coming back to visit was so fun and getting the babies together was amazing. I hope one day our paths cross again, but the wonderful thing about social media is we can still chat on a almost daily basis like there isn't an ocean between us <3

Hawaii Sessions: The Parr Family

Man, I really have the coolest job! I photographed their firstborn back in 2015 and when I mentioned I was planning on coming back to the island, Savannah messaged me saying she was newly pregnant and would be needing a birth announcement. HOW COOL. I love this little family and can't wait to meet Violet's little brother one day <3

Relaxed Family Photos (with a cupcake!) at Happy Hollow | Waynesville Family Photograper

This sweet little family is stationed here at Fort Leonard Wood as well currently, and I was excited to take them to Happy Hollow for little man's first birthday photos and some family shots. Mom and Dad were totally on board with relaxed photos without saying "cheese", and we played a little and just enjoyed the morning while capturing their playful interactions and smiles.

And cake.

Baby's First Bath | Missouri Lifestyle Photographer

One of the benefits of having a homebirth was no immediate bath. Madeline was dried off and the vernix was rubbed in. Some benefits to allowing this is reduced risk of infection, improved temperature control, improved maternal bonding, no baby lotion required (vernix is natures baby lotion), and stabilized infant blood sugar. (article here: Delaying Baby's First Bath)

We finally decided it was time, and BOY did she have a lot to say about it!
