Southern Indiana and Louisville Birth Photographer | Ava

Being a Louisville birth photographer and awaiting the phone call leaves me bursting with anticipation… maybe even more anticipation than when I was actually awaiting my own delivery. When Taylor texted me to let me know she was heading to The University of Louisville hospital, she also mentioned that it was very unlikely that she was actually in labor. Her due date was weeks away, and she had just been to an appointment where there were no signs that baby Ava would be on her way anytime soon.

You guys, that’s probably the most accurate description of labor and delivery. You can never plan for it, and you can never expect it. Babies just make their own way in their own time, which is what Ava did.

Taylor was admitted and delivery was imminent. And I was so excited, I could hardly stand it. Her incredible support came from family and her husband, Parker – he was one of the most attentive husbands and fathers I’ve seen. In between her contractions, this momma was all smiles.  This is Joanie, Taylor’s extraordinary midwife. UofL is one of only two local hospitals (that I know of) with midwives available, and without a doubt, Joanie is one of the best. You guys. Birth is incredible to witness every. single.time.  This is the look of absolute joy.

I have so many beautifully detailed and incredible images for this momma to explore (of course, I’m not going to share those here), but I hope that some of her favorites are these. To me, these are the photos that show what a perfect experience this was. She had a successful VBAC, and it was an honor to photograph it. Ava:: you are such a sweet and gentle girl – it was a privilege to photograph your big entrance into the world.

  • I’m going to take a break from shooting/sharing. I want to give space and have time to honor this family and this story. Please keep praying for them. ❤️

(archiving her holiday photos here is the easiest, so I’m making up for not doing it last year 🤷🏻‍♀️😬)

July 4th, 2018 - we spent the morning at an aviation museum, followed by an afternoon with a sick toddler. 🤢Thankfully, my sister took an Uber to get a new car seat (yep, the toddler was *that* sick 😬 - we couldn’t put her back in her current seat and we were 1.5 hrs from home 🙈), and we ended the day with a fireworks show on our street. 💥👏🏻🇺🇸

  • In 100 years, people will remember the tenacity of his love for the people around him, but especially for his girls. 🖤 I’m thankful everyday to be his.

  • I very much wish that I had more photos of Shane with Winnie in those first days. But since I had just done the whole delivering a baby thing, I didn’t take as many of them as I thought or hoped that I would. He’s not usually an emotional guy, and I would love to have captured his excitement and happiness through fresh 48 photos. So the lesson here is this: don’t be like me, and make sure you preserve those early days together. 🖤
