Oh, My Winnie… one month with you

I was not given the gift of eloquent speech or the ability to write beautifully. That being said, I’m not going to pretend that I can describe this last month to you… there aren’t words to adequately share how greatly our lives have changed. This baby of ours has brought a light we didn’t know was missing. She’s shown us love we didn’t know existed. Together, the boss and I have gone through the emotions of pregnancy and birth, to find ourselves deep in this emotion of parenthood.

While I had put her in her crib before this, September 20th was her first time “hanging out.” It was also the first day I got any kind of housework done. :)meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-543 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-540 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-544 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-539

On September 30th, she met Jimmy Fallon. :)louisville-photographer-meagan-white-photo-001 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-503

And now, October 3rd, she is one month old.
It is going by way too quickly… it breaks my heart to look through these photos and see the change from 5 days old to 4 weeks old (if you want to see days 1-4, as well as every day in between these photos, see my instagram). But, at the same time, I get so excited to see her personality develop. I can’t wait to watch her change the world one day, but for now, I’m willing time to slow so that I can enjoy my newborn for just a little while longer. meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-513 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-510 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-507 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-506meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-517 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-516

thankfully, I have this opportunity to photograph her days with my “big camera”… however, that doesn’t mean I don’t take a million photos a day with my phone. if you can’t get enough Winnie (and who can?!), follow my instagram or my Facebook page… it’s almost a guarantee that you’ll see this sweet face daily.

  • it’s the only photo we have of Winnie with her aunt Sallie because addiction is an evil that doesn’t give up, it’s a villain that won’t quit.
some people would say that Sallie lost her fight, but we know she won the ultimate battle and is celebrating 2 years in Heaven today.
we grieve everyday. it’s been 2 years without her and it’s been 2 years of missing her bottomless joy. but we are certain that joy is all over her face as she’s dancing with Jesus this morning. 🖤 #celebratingsallie
  • Who is ready for fall? 🍁 (aaaand everyone raises their hands 🙋🏼‍♀️😆) I took down Winnie's birthday decorations yesterday and immediately replaced them with all things pumpkin in my house. 🎃🙌🏻
I'm back to work this fall, and I've got some fun things to look forward to. 🍂 I spent the summer building a downloadable PDF of my photography course, and I'm excited to have that available soon - sign up for my newsletter for early access and special pricing (link in my profile). 📷👏🏻
  • They say when you meet the love of your life, time stops, and that’s true. What they don’t tell you is that when it starts again, it moves extra fast to catch up. 🕰✨
We can’t believe that we’ve been living the best days of our lives for 2 years. Happy birthday to our girl, the most beautiful  and wonderful person I know. 🎈

  • today, we are celebrating our girl - she doesn’t turn 2 for a couple more days, and we are savoring this last weekend with our 1-year-old. 🎈
(there are a few more birthday photos on my blog today: www.meaganwhitephoto.com)

  • I took the summer off from shooting - we have had so many fun things keeping us busy, and I wanted to keep my sanity (I don’t manage chaos well 🤪).
That being said, I’m officially getting back to work after Labor Day. My girl turns two in a week, so I’m ending my summer break with her birthday. 🎈
My fall mini sessions are happening in a little over a month, so if that’s something you’re interested in, let’s make it happen. (link is in my profile) 🍂
I haven’t been on Instagram for a few days (which shouldn’t really be noteworthy 😆), but there’s nothing new in my feed (thanks algorithm), so tell me what I’ve missed - what’s new with you?
  • photographs are how I will keep her little forever. 🖤 don’t settle for taking photos that are just “ok” - let’s chat about how you can bottle up time with your camera with images that you love. 📷 (link in my profile) #ohmywinnie
