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).

  • Father’s Day, 2019 | 06•16•2019 🖤 generous, devoted to his girls, very opinionated about food, not opinionated about pretty much anything else, fiercely loyal, extremely selfless, dedicated to kingdom work, smart and prophetic but even more humble... and also the greatest daddy to the greatest girl. 🖤 happy father’s day to my guy, the best I know.
  • I held her and rocked her until the very end. I kissed her again and again, and told her how much we have loved her and how we will always love her forever. It was peaceful and sweet and exactly what we needed, even if it’s not what we ever wanted. I wish more than anything that she was healthy and could have been with us for 100 more years, but I know she’s not in pain anymore, and I know that’s good. It’s just really hard. She was my best friend, she went through so much with us, and now we have to figure out how to get through this without her.

I’ve got to take a break from here for a while - we’ll be moving soon, and I never thought I’d have to do this without her. I’ll be ok, it’s just that right now I miss her more with every breath. ♥️ Thank you to everyone for your kind words, it means so much.
  • I woke up this morning with a tear-soaked pillow and a new understanding of heartache. They say that a dog will bless you with the best days of your life... and also with one of the worst. 💔 Yesterday was the hardest day I’ve ever had. She gave us so much... she gave us everything. I love her so much.
  • I was certain that no matter how many years went by, she would be with us forever. I didn’t think I’d ever have to share this news: our sweet, incredible, beautiful Elliott has passed. 🖤

I’ll share more later. Right now, our hearts are so very broken.
  • Amen for the weekend. 🙌🏻🎉 Our main squeeze has been living away from us during the week, so we count down to Thursday nights when he comes home for a couple of days. And then we all get to be a part of our new community at @lakesidechristianchurch together on Sunday, which has quickly become our favorite day each week. ♥️👏🏻 So, happy weekending, my friends - see you on Monday. ✌🏻😎
  • We are SO excited to be coming home... this summer is going to be a good one. ☀️ I am now booking for August and have some special Fresh 48 and Motherhood Session pricing, just for you, Northern KY! ♥️
