The newest little IAPBP member.
We are pleased to announce that Lyndsay Stradtner, Founder of The International Association of Professional Birth Photographers, has given birth to her 4th child. Jonah Reid Stradtner was born at home, in the water, on October 27, 2012. Just a few days shy of 42 weeks pregnant, he arrived in his own time and in his own way. It was intense, he was born with his hand next to his face, and insanely fast, yet beautiful. He weighed in at 7 lbs. 6 oz. and 21 inches long. Jonah was welcomed by his parents, Lyndsay and Jason, his older brothers, Ty and Teagan Jude and his sister, Taryn. They were lovingly cared for by their midwife, Heather Hilton of Central Texas Birth Center and their doula, Lindsey Bell of Linden Tree Doula Care. Lyndsay and her family were blessed by the presence of their birth photographer, IAPBP member, Leilani Rogers. She did a beautiful job all while under pressure having just arrived moments before the birth. You can see their birth story in images below.
