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

This fresh 48 session is one that is near and dear to my heart. Jason and Kelsey aren’t just clients, but they are friends, and I am lucky to count them as both. They have been expecting their sweet Olivia since we have known them, so getting to meet her was filled with eager excitement for me.

They delivered at Norton Women’s and Children’s Hospital, which is one of my favorite hospitals in the area – not only is the quality of care incredible, but those rooms and THAT LIGHT have me feeling all kinds of love for that place. Seeing Jason as new dad gently handle his teeny newborn was the sweetest thing to witness, but watching Kelsey connect with her girl absolutely melted me. When I started shooting births and fresh 48 sessions, I had no idea how emotional it could be to witness and photograph these first few hours. New parents bonding with their perfect and new baby is beautiful beyond words.  If you’ve ever tried to dress a newborn (imagine dressing cooked spaghetti), you can imagine the laughter here. Dressing your brand new baby is one of those memories you don’t know you’re missing until you realize you don’t have it. Fresh 48 sessions make sure all of these memories are documented forever. Newborn babies have the most perfect little features. Her little lips, her nose, those fingers… Olivia is every bit of beautiful. THIS!! BABY!! SNEEZE!! Petty Family:: it was more than an honor. It was an absolute gift. Thank you.

  • Here’s a quick update, for those asking... unfortunately, we don’t really have one. 😔 We’re still sitting in the unknown with baby. We have questions that won’t be answered until the big day, and we’re still praying that we get to the big day safely. And now we’re navigating the covid-19 chaos that has been added. No matter how “ready” I try to be, I am not ready to deliver during a global health crisis. 🦠😣 But even though we don’t know how this will all turn out, we do know Who .... we know Who holds us and this entire situation. So please keep praying. ♥️

  • I’ll be honest, I don’t have much to say about coronavirus. Right now, it’s just not a priority for us. At the risk of being one of those vague posts that everyone is annoyed by, I’m going to share this without getting too into the details. So here I am, asking you to pray. 🖤 When I was pregnant with Winnie, I was at the hospital a lot during those last few weeks of pregnancy for IV iron infusions. I was dangerously anemic, and I foolishly thought that was as crazy as pregnancy would ever get for me. 😓😬 This time around, I’m at the hospital a lot again, but this time we’ve got a lot of questions and not as many answers, and we’re just praying to get to the finish line healthy and safe. I would be forever thankful if you’d pray for us in this season. (no, it’s not Covid-19 🦠) And pray for this momma’s heart - our hospital has enacted a no visitors policy, which includes big sisters 😫😭 I totally understand the policy, but I’m definitely a little heartbroken over it.
  • What a season for holding tight to the things that are important. 🖤🌟

  • I’m slowly working on the last of my sessions before baby is here (emphasis on slowly 🦥🤪). Thankfully I have incredible and patient clients who are understanding and encouraging through this season. ❤️One of my more recent sessions has finally made it to my blog! 👏🏻 Jenny and the entire @theelderberryco team were a joy to photograph. 📸😊️

  • We were kids, ages 16 and 14. Never in a million years could I have guessed that 20 (!!!) years later, we would be here. 🖤 If I’d had the chance to write this story, I would have missed out on so much - it’s better than I could ever have imagined.

Happy 14th anniversary to my #1. Loving him is one of my greatest privileges.

  • These last few weeks have been the busiest and also the hardest weeks of pregnancy, and I don’t think that’s a coincidence. 😣 I’m learning a lot about what it means to slow down and listen to my body (and this sweet wild child I’m carrying), which also means letting a lot of things go. It’s hard, but of course it’s worth it. 🖤 But also, being pregnant in your (almost) mid-30’s is NO. JOKE. 😅🙈
