Louisville Maternity Photography

Bringing new life into the world is one of the most beautiful things we can ever experience. As a Louisville Maternity Photographer, I know that this sweet chapter before welcoming your little one into your life is one you'll never get back. Whether it's your first or your last, this season is worth celebrating!

I offer bright & timeless studio, in-home & outdoor photography for growing families. I love to keep it sweet & simple, focusing on the important details you never want to forget. No distracting props or wild colors so your photos will stand the test of time.

You deserve to have these tender memories captured without the added stress of coordinating all the things needed for a maternity photo session. Let me take the the hard stuff off your plate. The full-service MMP experience will take care of you from start to finish.

Congratulations, momma!

"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!"

Details & investment information






As a busy momma of two & a Louisville maternity 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 maternity photos, 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.

My individual session booking fee is $250. Heirloom albums, custom framed artwork, and digital files are purchased separately a la carte after your session. MMP clients plan to invest $1000+ at their design & ordering appointment where they can purchase custom artwork and/or digital files.

here's how it works




Once you've booked your Louisville maternity 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!
You can choose from the session options below for your Louisville maternity photo session. Most MMP clients choose one of the Collective options to take advantage of the perks included! See below for more information.
