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’m sharing more photos of her than I usually intend to, but I love who she is right now, and I love documenting that via Instagram (I’ve tried other apps but haven’t found one where I can keep photos/captions easily accessible like this - any suggestions?).

She’s 2.5, and she says SO much. She tells stories, sings songs (baby “ayuga,” worship music, and her “abcd’s” are her favorites), and gives us her opinion regularly. 🥴😂 Her favorite foods are pizza and “treats,” her favorite dress is the one with the pockets, and her favorite color is black (definitely my child 🖤😂). She loves wearing “neskits”
(necklaces) and eating chicken “nusgits,” she knows where to go for “Winnie’s donuts” with sugars (sprinkles) and where to get “momma’s coffees” (ok so maybe we go to @dunkin a little too often 🍩🤷🏻‍♀️), and she knows exactly where @bassproshops is. Her favorite thing to do is to go see “the fishies” - she has even named a few, and she knows exactly which is which. 🐟
Just like any toddler, she’s a sponge and soaks up and remembers every little thing she hears. She recounts things to us from weeks earlier, and can recall details that even Shane and I have long forgotten. She knows her letters, colors, and shapes, and has even started to understand phonics and simple math a little. She blows our minds every day.

We are thankful every second of every day. These last few months have been a little trying for her daddy and me, but this tiny one truly is our sunshine. Our favorite time every day is right before bed when we sit down with her bible, and she tells us about Noah, Jonah, John (“he had a big, bushy beard!”), and most importantly, Jesus. No matter our circumstances, this girl is a light and a reminder of what is good every single day. ♥️

  • I took a few quick photos of our girl in her Easter dress before church tonight. It was cold and rainy out, so we took advantage of this small pocket of light inside the house. This was one I shot while I was adjusting my settings, and I feel like it tells a story fitting of this weekend - we were lost in darkness, but the light is coming. 🌤
