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.

  • When we moved to our old neighborhood almost five years ago, we knew we’d love the house/the location/the proximity to everything amazing (hello, Target 👋🏻). What we didn’t know was how much we would love the people living next door. No longer neighbors, forever our friends. ♥️ So thankful to have spent the last few days with these two, already counting down to seeing them again.

photos: from today, from right before we moved to Ky in June, and from right before we moved out of our house in December 🌟
  • yesterday, her birthday dreams came true: she saw a real-life sloth, which is her absolute favorite animal, and she hasn’t stopped talking about it since 😆❤️ (he’s hard to spot in the photo, he’s napping on the platform above her 😴)

  • Winnie, you are 3. 🎈🎉

Today is our golden girl’s golden birthday. ✨ We love her more than words could say. She is fire and light and nonstop energy. We are overwhelmingly thankful for her. We know that every day is such a treasure with her, and we will never be sad to see her grow up, even if it is happening so fast. She is our greatest gift, and we can’t believe she’s already 3!

  • we had a little “party” for our girl yesterday 🍕🎉 so far, I’ve loved theming her birthday and making her invitation every year 👏🏻 and this year, that’s about all I did - I made an invitation and then didn’t actually plan the party 😬😂 so with minimal, last-minute decorating and a crazy looking pizza dessert (#nailedit 🏆), we celebrated this sweet girl with her favorite food and some of her favorite people by her side. ♥️ (swipe 👉🏻 for some Pinterest-worthy baking inspo 🍕🍪🤪)

also, a side note... Instagram tells me that I should only post at 9pm because that’s when my greatest “engagement” is 🙄 help me prove that statistic wrong with a like/comment/why not both? k, thanks, you’re the best. 😘
