As a mother and family photographer based in Morgan City, Louisiana, I am passionate about capturing these early days through beautiful, timeless photography. My full-service studio is in Morgan City and I am thrilled to extend my services to the wonderful families of Baton Rouge for their newborn photoshoots.

Why Baton Rouge Newborn Photography?

Newborn photography is more than just a photo session; it is a way to preserve the fleeting moments of your baby’s first days. From the delicate curl of their tiny fingers to their innocent expressions, every detail tells a story of love and new beginnings. These photos serve as cherished keepsakes that you and your family will treasure forever.

The Ideal Time for a Baby Photoshoot

The best time to schedule a newborn photoshoot is within the first two weeks of your baby’s life. During this period, newborns are generally more sleepy and flexible, making it easier to pose them in those adorable, curled-up positions. Additionally, capturing your baby at this stage allows you to document their fresh, newborn features before they begin to change and grow.

What to Expect During the Newborn Photoshoot

At Melinda Gilmore Photography, I strive to make your newborn photoshoot a stress-free and enjoyable experience. Here’s what you can expect:

1. Pre-Session Consultation: Before the photoshoot, we will discuss your preferences, color schemes, and styling choices. This helps ensure that the session aligns with your vision and results in photos that reflect your family’s unique personality.

2. Comfortable Studio Environment: My studio in Morgan City is fully equipped to cater to your newborn’s needs. From heaters and noise machines to cozy blankets and a variety of props, every detail is carefully curated to keep your baby comfortable and content throughout the session.

3. Patience and Care: Newborn sessions require a great deal of patience and care. I take the time to soothe and gently pose your baby, capturing their natural beauty and expressions. Your baby’s safety and comfort are my top priorities.

4. Family Involvement: Including parents and siblings in the photoshoot adds an extra layer of warmth and connection to your images. Whether it’s a tender moment between mom and baby or a playful interaction with older siblings, these photos capture the love and bond within your family.
