Oh So Fresh! | Aloha Baby Session at Tripler Army Medical Center


Aloha Baby Sessions are so special and tender. I was notified that mom was in labor late that night, and (for a change) I went right to bed. Being a birth photographer means I'd be typically be on high alert but since I knew they wanted me to come after baby was born to capture big sister meeting her brother, I went to sleep with a smile on my face.

The next morning I heard back saying baby was earth side, and was delivered via c-section and turned out to be a pretty chunky little man. And what a cute little man he was! Big sister was amazing and helped dad feed baby while mom rested in bed after her surgery.

My favorite moment was when big sister decided she needed to make sure her baby brother tasted good and licked his feet <3 Then she went on to show him how to make a heart with her hands. I might die!
