Southern Indiana and Louisville Birth Photographer | Levi

Darin and Emilee are two of the most special people I know, and their new little Levi is every bit of that, as well.
Some of my favorite birth story images are these… everyone is waiting, full of anticipation, no one knowing when everything will change forever. Learning it was time to meet their son.This next part of this birth story is theirs to share, so I am keeping these photos to a minimum. :)  I will say that Emilee delivered beautifully with Darin by her side. It was an honor to witness and document it for them.  If there’s one thing I know about births, it’s that they are unpredictable. For example, you might get a phone call letting you know that momma has been admitted with hours of laboring ahead of her. Then you arrive at the hospital a short time later to find out that she’s actually ready to push, hours sooner than anyone thought. After being informed it could take a while to get the hang of things, that same momma might have her baby boy in her arms in a matter of minutes. You truly never know how a baby will make his grand entrance, and Levi made his spectacular debut in the best, most memorable way. They welcomed Levi at Good Samaritan Hospital. I love when a hospital values the time a baby spends with his momma – these three had over an hour of quality time together before Levi ever left his momma’s arms. Mirantes, you know me well enough to know it’s not like me to be left without something to say. :) However, here I am, unable to find the words to say thank you. You three are a gift and to document this perfect and beautiful BIRTH day was an honor like no other. I love getting to stick around to watch family be introduced to their newest joy. These grandparents and auntie made my day (it doesn’t hurt that I absolutely adore all them anyway).

  • I got a handful of messages after my last post, so I just want to clarify a few things...
.

1. value your work - if you don’t value what you do, you can’t expect others to value it (/pay you for it)

2. BUT don’t be fearful of giving your time and talents - there are opportunities where giving of yourself and what you do is a beautiful gift to not only your subject, but also yourself

3. protect yourself and your business by charging what you deserve in order to make room for #2

4. for photographers - if you don’t love it, stop shooting it.... stop trying to do it all. when I go to the dentist, I don’t expect to have an eye exam

5. know why - I know why I charge what I charge (because I know what my expenses are, what I want my profit to be, etc), and that makes it easy to be confident in my pricing

keep your thoughts/questions coming - I’ve been doing this for over 10 years, and I’ve gone though the seasons of charging and not charging and being confident and being unsure... and if all of this experience adds up to the opportunity to get to encourage and support someone else, then it was worth it. 👏🏻

this has nothing to do with this photo, but I’m ordering a computer today 💸 and I feel like this is a a great time to remind people of why photographers (and all small business owners) charge what they do ... (because “favors for friends” don’t pay for hard drives and ram 💻) if you want to hear me on my soapbox, ask me to “just shoot a couple quick ones” for you sometime 😬😣📸

  • Thoughts on Instagram....
I did the whole “post every day” thing, and I can assuredly say that it didn’t help. And then I stopped posting for a more than a month, which I’m sure also didn’t help. 😬🤷🏼‍♀️
.
So now that I’m sort of “back”, could you like/comment/maybe both if you’re seeing this? I haven’t been around enough, so my audience is hugely limited and any interaction will help 👏🏻😬
.
thankkkksss you’re the best 🖤

  • One of the most meaningful gifts you can give to new parents is the gift of being able to revisit their baby’s first hours again and again 🖤 fresh 48 sessions are a perfect and beautiful way to do this. ✨ I’m so ready to get back at it, and I can’t think of a better way than with all the sweet, new babies.
