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.

  • Friday the 13th got me like 😎
I’m just excited it’s the weekend. 🙌🏻 I’ve got fun plans to help shower this girl and celebrate the fact that sheeee’s gettin’ marrrrrieeeed! 💍🎉💖 what are your weekend plans? better yet, what are your “mom’s-night-out” recovery tips for the next day because this momma is for sure going to need them. 😳🙈😂
  • I love shooting seniors. 🙌🏻 For years, it wasn’t something I made time for, and for years, I WAS MISSING OUT. 😫 I’ve recently added senior sessions to my regularly available services, and sessions like this one are why.
Katelyn’s senior session is on my blog. Hands-down, it’s one of my favorites. ♥️

  • a lot of my friends do “Friday introductions,” but I think I’m feeling “Wednesday with [one of] the Whites” ... 🤔😆
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
here are 3 things that probably tell you all there is to know about me and also happen to be 3 things you didn’t ask to know 🤓
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• I call my style “eclectic,” but really I’m just a sucker for a clearance sticker and can make anything work for the right price 💰🛒
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• I would probably dislocate a shoulder or break my fingers before making multiple trips to get the groceries from the car 🤷🏼‍♀️🙈
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• sometimes we throw away perfect tupperware to avoid emptying whatever leftovers are still inside 😳
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
what are 3 things I don’t know about you? share at least 1 in the comments, I think this will be fun! 👏🏻

  • I am failing at instagram. I can’t make the algorithm work for me, and it’s making me bananas. 🍌🤪 Less than than half of my amazing and wonderful followers are seeing anything I post, literally (I’ve checked the provided insights, and only a handful of images have reached half or more of you for at least 6 months).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m not upset, but I am frustrated because this is how I market my business. I knew changing how I used social media would affect my reach, but this result makes it difficult to be encouraged to use the app at all. 👎🏻
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know I could do things differently, I could sit online all day, I could spend hours interacting with posts and increasing my engagement, I could work really hard to be seen on here. I could play the @instagram game better. 🙄 
But why? Why would I do any of that? I want to market here, but not at the expense of it becoming an actual part-time, unpaid gig. I want to use this platform as a way to share my work and my life, but I value my time being unplugged and with my family over the increased exposure on here.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, for now, I’ll just keep sharing hoping that the 25-30% of you who do see it will love it and appreciate it. 🤷🏼‍♀️ At the risk of sounding like every other account that is dealing with a similar plight, I do have a small request - if you can see my posts, it would just be the greatest if you would like them/comment on them so that I know who’s here. 🙏🏻😚
