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).

  • Today, while we shot birthday photos for this girl (I can’t believe she’ll be two in a few weeks 😱😭), we talked about aunt Sallie and how today is her birthday. The irony that we’re planning a birthday while mourning a birthday is not lost on me. But I know that Sallie would love that we’re celebrating her through celebrating our girl. 🎈 #ohmywinnie

  • wow! a huge thanks to @todayswomannow for sharing this story!! 🎉❤️ (local friends, it’s in their most recent issue 👏🏻)
.
we made an unpopular decision a few months ago by getting rid of almost all of our social media and keeping Winnie as far away from it as we can. and it’s been so rewarding. 🙌🏻 Winnie still gets shown off from time to time, but keeping our real lives with her off of this app (and Facebook, Twitter, etc) is one of the best decisions we’ve made as parents.

“When it comes to our kids, we are in the midst of a ‘large uncontrolled experiment’.” Technology (ie, smartphones and social media) is the only thing that we throw blindly at our kids without knowing how it will impact their futures. I’m not saying our choice is the right choice for everyone, but I am saying to do your research. #ohmywinnie

  • I am SO READY for fall weather. 🍁 Summer is great, I don't mind it, whatever. But I've been talking about fall more and more recently, and OHMYGOSH CAN IT GET HERE ALREADY. 😫
.
Fall mini sessions will take place on 10/6 and 10/27. Both will be here in Southern Indiana. One weekend might have the option for Christmas themed props, I haven't decided on that part yet (if this is something you would want, comment and let me know which weekend would be better for you). 🎄 If these two dates don't work, don't fret... I almost always open up a third weekend for them once I get the first two booked. 🙌🏻

  • I have a lot of bad days. I don’t always share them here - maybe I should. or maybe it’s good that I don’t because who wants to hear me whine, am I right? 🤨 it’s just that some days (Sundays) are especially difficult when Winnie doesn’t see Shane even once all day. and you know she asks about him aaaall day. 😩  but thanks to my sweet friends who checked in on me after my post yesterday. you guys are the best and really I’m fine. 🖤 now, if Monday could just get on with it because, ugh, mooonnndddaaayyy. 😒😖 #ohmywinnie
