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.

Featuring the Unbound Album - Now Available with your Sessions

I've been working on finding the perfect album for over two years now. I wanted not just a typical layflat option, but also an unbound box to chose from. Something that the kids and family could all enjoy while sitting around the living room, passing photos back and forth. It had to be aesthetically pleasing, so it could sit in plain sight on a shelf or entertainment stand without becoming an eyesore. Something people might inquire about, but also able to blend into each family's décor.

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.

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
