Houma, Louisiana Newborn Session | Specializing in Newborn Photography
My name is Melinda Gilmore and I’m a photographer who specializes in newborn photography. I have the privilege of photographing all these little bundles of joy in South Louisiana.
While some people love the thrill of a wedding photography or enjoy working with high school students for senior pictures my absolute favorite subjects to photograph are sweet and innocent newborns.
Why you ask? Because as a mother of two I would have loved to have these precious photos of my children when they were newborns. They are only newborns for such a short time. Having those sweet memories to share with them as they grow and have their own children would have been heirlooms I would have treasured for a lifetime.
Sure, photographing newborns can be tricky. Sometimes they cry and sometimes all they want to do is snuggle with mom. But you know what? I like capturing those moments, too.
I’m happy to say that I’ve been lucky enough to have all my hard work and dedication to newborn photography rewarded. In that past, I’ve won awards with international photo competitions and mentored with some of the best newborn photographers in the world.
