Southern Indiana and Louisville Birth Photographer | Fresh 48 Photography | Elijah

I was beside myself with excitement to shoot this Fresh 48 photography session – this sweet momma wanted to focus on big sister, Ella Kate, meeting this little one. It was a beautiful introduction at Norton Women’s hospital. It was beautiful, and I was so privileged to be there. She was apprehensive at first, like most new siblings are, but she quickly warmed up and loved on him in a way that only a big sister can. After falling in love with him, she was so excited to share him with the rest of the family. If I’m remembering correctly, it went a little something like, “come on, we had a baby!” Then, when asked if he looked anything like her, “yeah!! he looks like me!” Everyone in the waiting area was giggling at her pride in her new baby brother.
Ella Kate was so excited to share her stickers, her dolls, and anything else she could find in her backpack full of goodies. She was loving on this boy in a big way, and it was the sweetest thing to see.

THANK YOU. It really was a gift to be there for this day. Thank you for asking me and for allowing me in for such a special introduction. Congrats on two beautiful babies. :)

  • Today, while we shot birthday photos for this girl (I can’t believe she’ll be two in a few weeks 😱😭), we talked about aunt Sallie and how today is her birthday. The irony that we’re planning a birthday while mourning a birthday is not lost on me. But I know that Sallie would love that we’re celebrating her through celebrating our girl. 🎈 #ohmywinnie

  • wow! a huge thanks to @todayswomannow for sharing this story!! 🎉❤️ (local friends, it’s in their most recent issue 👏🏻)
.
we made an unpopular decision a few months ago by getting rid of almost all of our social media and keeping Winnie as far away from it as we can. and it’s been so rewarding. 🙌🏻 Winnie still gets shown off from time to time, but keeping our real lives with her off of this app (and Facebook, Twitter, etc) is one of the best decisions we’ve made as parents.

“When it comes to our kids, we are in the midst of a ‘large uncontrolled experiment’.” Technology (ie, smartphones and social media) is the only thing that we throw blindly at our kids without knowing how it will impact their futures. I’m not saying our choice is the right choice for everyone, but I am saying to do your research. #ohmywinnie

  • I am SO READY for fall weather. 🍁 Summer is great, I don't mind it, whatever. But I've been talking about fall more and more recently, and OHMYGOSH CAN IT GET HERE ALREADY. 😫
.
Fall mini sessions will take place on 10/6 and 10/27. Both will be here in Southern Indiana. One weekend might have the option for Christmas themed props, I haven't decided on that part yet (if this is something you would want, comment and let me know which weekend would be better for you). 🎄 If these two dates don't work, don't fret... I almost always open up a third weekend for them once I get the first two booked. 🙌🏻

  • I have a lot of bad days. I don’t always share them here - maybe I should. or maybe it’s good that I don’t because who wants to hear me whine, am I right? 🤨 it’s just that some days (Sundays) are especially difficult when Winnie doesn’t see Shane even once all day. and you know she asks about him aaaall day. 😩  but thanks to my sweet friends who checked in on me after my post yesterday. you guys are the best and really I’m fine. 🖤 now, if Monday could just get on with it because, ugh, mooonnndddaaayyy. 😒😖 #ohmywinnie

  • no clever caption or insightful thoughts about this photo. 🤷🏼‍♀️ it’s just a photo that makes me happy, and I need a little of that right now because sometimes Sundays are hard. 😞
