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.

  • I’m going to take a break from shooting/sharing. I want to give space and have time to honor this family and this story. Please keep praying for them. ❤️

(archiving her holiday photos here is the easiest, so I’m making up for not doing it last year 🤷🏻‍♀️😬)

July 4th, 2018 - we spent the morning at an aviation museum, followed by an afternoon with a sick toddler. 🤢Thankfully, my sister took an Uber to get a new car seat (yep, the toddler was *that* sick 😬 - we couldn’t put her back in her current seat and we were 1.5 hrs from home 🙈), and we ended the day with a fireworks show on our street. 💥👏🏻🇺🇸

  • In 100 years, people will remember the tenacity of his love for the people around him, but especially for his girls. 🖤 I’m thankful everyday to be his.

  • I very much wish that I had more photos of Shane with Winnie in those first days. But since I had just done the whole delivering a baby thing, I didn’t take as many of them as I thought or hoped that I would. He’s not usually an emotional guy, and I would love to have captured his excitement and happiness through fresh 48 photos. So the lesson here is this: don’t be like me, and make sure you preserve those early days together. 🖤
