Brynn | “Keeping the Peace” | Newborn Session | Nancy Wiley Photography | Virginia Beach Newborn Photographer

Sweet baby Brynn’s parents started their journey in not the most typical romantic environment. They like to tell people that they met in jail, and then usually get some pretty stunned looks and are asked for more details!! Jacqueline and Cody actually met at the Norfolk City jail where they both worked; Jacqueline as a nurse, and Cody as a police officer.

“We joke and say that we are the typical American family – a cop and a nurse!” Jacqueline shared. Cody was born and raised in Virginia, while Jacqueline is originally from Germany and moved to the States when she was 12. Jacqueline enlisted in the Army Reserves, which brought her to Virginia Beach. Check out the special poses of newborn Brynn with her daddy’s police cap and mommy’s uniform and dog tags!

Tiny Brynn kept her parents on their toes the whole pregnancy with small hiccups here and there, and decided to make her entrance into the world three weeks early! Brynn was what is called “Frank breech” inside her mommy’s womb, so her little legs stuck straight up in front of her body with her feet near her head. During her session, Brynn’s sweet legs decided they were most comfortable sticking straight out, sometimes right up in the air, even while completely relaxed and asleep! 🙂 Also check out the insanely cute little pout that Brynn puts on while her mommy was holding her! Too precious!!

Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Colton | Newborn Session | VA Beach Newborn Photographer

What a sweet pea this tiny pirate named Colton was for me!! The cute scallywag did gave his parents a little scare before he arrived into the world, and didn’t waste much time before he gave them yet another! Thankfully, all is well with little Colton now and he’s keeping his parents busy being a normal newborn troublemaker!

Appropriately, six years ago, Colton’s parents Jenn and Jason had their first date at the Pirate Exhibit at Nauticus, a maritime-themed science center and museum located on the downtown waterfront in Norfolk, Virginia. Pirate-loving Jenn professed that, “Jason knew the way to my heart.” ❤

Captain Colton was the perfect mini snoozing pirate for his newborn session with me! The little lad even let me use his awesome pirate treasure chest handcrafted by his grandpa.

Kai Everett | Our Rainbow Baby | Newborn Session | Personal | VA Beach Newborn Photographer

Our sweet, sweet Kai Everett made his appearance into the world on Friday, April 17th, 2015… with a few unexpected events! My pregnancy with him was generally without any complications, other than a great deal of discomfort at the end due to his hefty size for his tiny little mama!! At 37 weeks, we were told that he was breech and that a C-section would be scheduled for April 16th due to the risks of a breech birth and the high unlikelihood of him flipping to a head down position due to his and my size.

Sure enough, just minutes before I was to receive meds for my scheduled C-section (and over 3 hours after checking in), an ultrasound showed that our little big guy had turned himself head down!! We cancelled the surgery and decided to go ahead with an induction, since we were already admitted into the hospital with IV’s and everything, and my loved ones were already present or on their way to meet the new baby!

A very, very slooow progression of labor ensued… with not much at all happening the whole day and night on Thursday, even with full doses of Pitocin, consistent contractions, and many walks around the labor and delivery ward with my portable monitor! Once the new shift and doctor came on board Friday morning, things finally got to progressing once my water was broken. A total of 23 hours later, at 3:27pm on Friday the 17th, Kai Everett was born weighing 8 pounds 6 ounces and 20 inches long!

Shortly after his birth, I had a little scare with some excruciating pain, which we quickly discovered was my uterus overreacting to a couple large clots that were then manually hemorrhaged with extreme force by my obstetrician. Unfortunately, with an epidural that had mostly run out by then, it was not so fun for mommy, to say the least!!! Morphine to the rescue once the situation was under control, and all was well! We are so grateful for skilled medical staff that were able to control the situation so quickly, even if it felt like an eternity in the moment!!

All the pains and complications were totally and completely worth it for our sweet and peaceful rainbow baby, Kai. Many of you know that I was born in Hawaii, so the Hawaiian name Kai meaning ocean or sea was a perfect fit for our little rainbow after the storm. He is such a blessing to our family and we have been enjoying him immensely for the past 13 days. On day 8, I captured a few shots of newborn Kai (with my push gift – my new lens – I might add)!
