Southern Indiana and Louisville Birth Photographer | Edison at Clark Memorial

Before this, I haven’t considered myself a birth photographer, so I really had no idea what to expect. I photographed a birth at Clark Memorial.
I totally skipped out on that day in health class. The day that you watch the outdated birth film. Yeah, you know the day I’m talking about.

So I REALLY had no idea what to expect.
Well, I guess I had an idea… but you know what I mean.

 

And it was, in a word, breathtaking. Absolutely breathtaking.

I don’t know about other wedding photographers, but I always get crazy jitters as soon as the processional music begins during a wedding ceremony. It’s all of the adrenaline and excitement for the day, compressed into the first chord of “here comes the bride.”
Well… there wasn’t a rendition of “here comes the baby” (or maybe “happy birthday” would have been a good choice), but I assure you, I didn’t need it to feel the nervousness. And it was totally a good nervous. It wasn’t just an oh-my-this-is-about-to-happen nervous… it was an I’m-about-to-meet-a-brand-new-person nervous.  And THAT is a whole new kind of nervous for me. (is anyone else tired of me saying nervous?)Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 022 Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 025 Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 023Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 032Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 035Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 034Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 033Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 031Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 037Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 038Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 047Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 040

I’m not going to share the “for real” photos with you.
1. they’re not something the weaker-willed would want to see.
and 2. they are so intimate and special, I want to save them for this sweet family to share if they choose to.

However… while I’m holding back, I’m still sharing real birth photos. If you’re anything like the boss, and maybe birth isn’t your cup of tea… scroll quickly.

Thanks for making my first official birth photography experience the most incredible thing yet. You’ve taught me that I could shoot 1000 births, and I’ll still be in complete awe. You are the sweetest boy, and I was honored to be a part of your first hours this side of the womb. Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 184Meagan White Photo - Edison Birth 185

  • “Waiting is active obedience.” We are in a season of waiting, and if you have ever waited for God to show you something, you know that it’s never a passive waiting. We are waiting and resting in God’s sovereignty. “Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.” (Matthew 6:8) ♥️
  • Such a fun family session posted today 🍂  there are no words in the post, just pictures... word press updated and it was late when I was working and I was easily confused 🙈😆 what I would have written about is how it rained in a BIG way right before we began shooting, it broke as soon as we began, aaaaand then it picked up with thunder and all the very minute we quit. ⛈ Quite an afternoon, but this group ROCKED and it was so much fun - see more at meaganwhitephoto.com. 👏🏻

  • I know a lot of people are wondering what in the world is happening over here these days. And honestly... I’m not really sure that I know. 😳😂
Here’s what I can tell you: Shane and I have felt a little “off” about a lot of things for a while, including what he’s been doing in his job - there’s nothing “wrong,” he’s just not doing what he is called to do.
We know, without a doubt, that he is an incredible worship leader. But he’s also crazy talented at teaching and sharing the Gospel. So to only be doing maybe half of what he’s capable of has been a little discouraging and draining for him. It’s contrary to what the world says, but when you’re living in your gifting, you’re not “working.” Yeah, it’s for sure hard work, but when it’s what God has clearly called you to, you do it and you’re energized. To be doing something else, even if it’s less work on paper, it’s exhausting, and that’s what’s been happening.
I don’t know if this will make sense to most. Or to anyone, really. To see us stepping out like we are without a clear, step-by-step plan... well, it’s unnerving. But we know it’s right.
There are a lot of little details that are a part of this story, and they all add up to one big answer - the time to pursue something new is now. Do not wait. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200. Get.👊🏻 It.👊🏻 Done.👊🏻 So that’s what we’re doing.
All of this unknown has created a lot of questions about our decision-making abilities and maybe even our sanity 🤷🏼‍♀️😆 our prayer has been and better always be that everything we do brings praise and glory to the One who holds us tightly. And we know that this story will. So, for everyone wondering and praying, please know that we are fully confident and fully trusting, even though there are days when it’s hard. There have been a lot of tears and confusion, but there has also been immense celebration and excitement. And, as a lot of our closest friends have said, if anyone can do this, it’s us. ✨

  • 2018 is the first year since I started Meagan White Photo that I didn’t accept any weddings. Sessions like this are one of many reasons why I haven’t regretted it once. ♥️ Thankful every day.
