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.

today was one of those days that feels like winter will never end. and I have to remind myself that there are beautiful things in this season, even if I can’t wait for it to be over. 🖤 #ohmywinnie
  • OF COURSE WE HAVE MATCHING COATS #ohmywinnie
  • . . . 13 🖤

So much has happened in 13 years, so much life has been lived. This year, we found a love that was living so deep inside, we didn’t know it existed.
But sometimes, unexpected things happen that uncover those hidden pockets of connection, those undiscovered parts of you that desperately need the other person. This 13th year has been exceptional. I know I love you more than ever, and I know that’s because you are more you than ever.
And as good as it’s been, I know the next year will be even better.

  • Our world has been on its head a little for a few months. 🙃 But we are hopeful because things that shouldn’t make sense do, and peace that shouldn’t exist does. All because we know our King is in control. 🙌🏻 I have to remind myself every day that none of it is up to me, which of course is going great because anyone who knows me knows that I’m definitely TOTALLY CHILL. 😅🤪

March is one of my favorite months. 💕 I know it’s never actually true, but I like to think March is the gateway to Spring AND I CAN’T WAIT FOR SPRING (she says, along with the rest of the world). 🌷 March is also the month I got married... 13 years ago (!!! I KNOW). ❤️ I think this month is going to be big for us this year, and we are waiting and praying with great expectation of what’s to come. 🙌🏻 .
