Louisville Newborn Photographer

I've created a stress-free photography experience that's going to take the to-do list off your plate so you can focus on what's truly important!

I'll walk you through choosing outfits from my exclusive client wardrobe, coordinate hair and makeup services on the day of your session, and even handle printing, framing, and delivering your beautiful images - all you have to do is show up! 

As a Louisville newborn photographer and a mother of two, I'm well aware of the struggle it can be to get family photos taken. From spending hours in stores to find the perfect outfits that end up looking unflattering, to ending up with photos that I liked, but are now collecting dust on a hard drive. 
I've been there and done that. 
You're not alone! 






the mmp signature Full Service experience




You're busy enough as it is, so let me take care of the portrait to-do list. My full service experience is specifically designed for busy, growing families like yours!

Once you've booked your session with me, we'll meet at my studio to plan your session! I'll help style you & your babies with outfits that have been carefully curated & photograph beautifully. We'll finalize a location & start discussing what your goals are for artwork in your home.

If you're using my hair & makeup artist, she'll either come to your home or you can go to her studio to get pampered before your session. I'll have your outfits steamed and ready to go on location. We'll have a relaxed session and capture the sweet season of life you're in. Your kids will have fun and your husband will leave saying "wow, that was actually pretty painless."

When your images are ready, we'll meet again for your photo reveal and ordering appointment. You'll view gallery wall designs I've created just for you, and we'll design your album together & fill it with all your favorite images.MMP clients plan to spend $1000+ at their ordering appointment.

When your artwork and digitals are ready, I will mail or hand deliver them to you. I cannot wait to work with you and make your Louisville Newborn Photography dreams come true!

Located on the east end of Louisville, KY, the studio is the perfect timeless backdrop for your photos. It's available to any MMP clients for styling, planning, ordering & design, as well as your session.

Hand picked by me, the studio wardrobe is full of pieces that are sure to be flattering and beautifully photogenic. No need to spend countless hours shopping and worrying about what to wear.

Gorgeous & flattering pieces I've selected to take one big stressor off your plate.

Here's why Moms love

the MMP signature luxury experience

They love that all the pain points of their photo session are taken care of by me! My incredible hair and makeup artist pampers them and helps them feel their best. Everyone loves the wardrobe choices I have, and the ease of not having to coordinate outfits for their family on their own. They also love that their precious memories turn into a beautiful, custom album or gallery wall seemingly magically! 

Ultimately when clients choose me and the experience I offer, they know they are going to look back on their photos and remember how everyone in their family enjoyed their session (even their husband), because it was a stress-free, effortless Louisville newborn photography experience.


"If you’re on the fence, book with Missy!!!"

"100% recommend. We did a Bump to Baby package and did maternity and newborn sessions, and they are such beautiful and special pictures that I will treasure forever!! Best experience we’ve ever had with family pictures. Missy made it easy and stress-free for busy parents, and using the client closet and studio was perfect for us especially during the the newborn phase. We have a toddler who was having a hard time during the session, and Missy was so good with her- I am so amazed at the beautiful pictures she was able to capture. You would never know there were toddler meltdowns behind the scenes! If you’re on the fence, book with Missy!!!"


"Missy offers flexibility, is easy going, and is overall just great at her job—highly recommend!"

Missy is incredibly professional, beyond friendly, and so thoughtful. She captured some of our favorite maternity and newborn memories. We were thrilled with the final product. Her hair & makeup artist did a perfect job. Missy offers flexibility, is easy going, and is overall just great at her job—highly recommend!


"Missy had the ambiance perfect and the way she worked with our baby girl was incredible!"

"Missy was absolutely amazing! We were so nervous our baby girl was going to cry through the whole shoot. When we arrived Missy had the ambiance perfect and the way she worked with our baby girl was incredible! She has such a calm and soothing approach and put us right at ease! The photos she took were incredible and we love them so much! Definitely using her for all our family portraits!"


"She was so patient with my 2 year old and was able to really make him laugh and smile"

"Missy is so wonderful. She’s my go-to person now! She was so patient with my 2 year old and was able to really make him laugh and smile and get amazing photos of him even when we weren’t trying. I loved getting to use her wardrobe and utilize her styling experience to make our family photos look cohesive but not too tacky or matchy-matchy. They’re so light and airy and happy, which is exactly what I love. Shes the best!"


"We are obsessed with our maternity and newborn photos"

"Missy is absolutely amazing!! If you're looking for a true all-inclusive experience, definitely check her work out - you won't regret it! Everything from the styling appointment, photo sessions in the studio, to her quick responses to questions, it was all so wonderful! We are obsessed with our maternity and newborn photos she took of our family and can't wait to see our photos from the Motherhood Event we were just a part of. Thank you!!"


"Missy embraced our chaos with ease and made sure we had an easy, peaceful experience."

"Missy Marshall Photography is everything. From start to finish she makes booking, planning, and the experience of having professional photos taken a breeze. As a mom of two under two I was a nervous wreck to book anything because let’s be real, my toddler is a walking tornado and my newborn has colic. Missy embraced our chaos with ease and made sure we had an easy, peaceful experience. She even came out to our house on a different day because my newborn wasn’t having it the first day to make sure we got the photos we wanted. She is everything! The photos are so beautiful and speak for themselves. We will definitely be back for more photos in the future!"
