"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!!!"


"She works beautifully with children and gets shots you could never imagine capturing!"

"Missy is THE best in the industry! She does a great job of capturing the essence of our family. She works beautifully with children and gets shots you could never imagine capturing!"


"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 is beyond talented and she always goes above and beyond for her clients"

Missy is beyond talented and she always goes above and beyond for her clients. Her photos are gorgeous, and even more than that she is able to make the process less stressful for everyone involved. She is able to engage toddlers (who are less than thrilled to participate) and the newest of newborns. We have used her for both mini sessions and the milestone package, and are looking forward to using her skills for years to come!


"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!"


"She makes you feel comfortable, gives you so much love and patience while photographing"

"Missy is such an amazing photographer! She makes you feel comfortable, gives you so much love and patience while photographing and I couldn’t recommend her more! We did our newborn photos with her and she was so amazing with our one week old. She helped out with dressing her, moving into her cute poses without disturbing her sleep. It was truly amazing! Definitely book Missy and you won’t be disappointed!"


"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!"

Details & investment information






As a busy momma of two & a Louisville family photographer, I know exactly how stressful planning and executing a portrait session can be. I've created a full-service experience that helps get you from desperately wanting beautiful photos of your family to enjoying your portraits as precious heirloom products you'll cherish forever, without adding anything to your to-do list.

First, we will meet before your session to discuss which artwork options best fit your goals and vision for your home. At this appointment, you'll also get to try on clothing options from my exclusive client wardrobe and I'll help you decide what everyone will be wearing to your session. Imagine having that huge task checked off!

On the day of your Louisville family photo session, I'll have everything ready to go on location for you! If you choose to add on professional hair and makeup, or it's included in your session, I will have that coordinated for you. All you have to do is show up in your sweats, change into your freshly steamed outfits, and have a fun, relaxed session!

A few weeks after your session, you'll view your images for the first time and place your order at our design appointment. This is when we will design custom, beautiful artwork to preserve your memories.

here's how it works




Once you've booked your Louisville family photos 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 this sweet season of life you're in. Your kids will have fun and your husband will leave saying "That was actually pretty fun!"

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+ on digital files and optional artwork at their ordering appointment.


If you're loving what you see & want to work together, you can fill out this form to receive all the important booking information!
