Louisville Newborn PHOTOGRAPHER


I understand that life gets busy and these moments pass too quickly. It's important to document this season of life as you're in it. I will guide you so you and your family are comfortable in front of the camera, and we can get the shots you've been dreaming of! However, life isn't posed, it's chaotic, messy. My favorite moments in a session are the giggles and the silliness, and the warm smiles that come from being together. After all, it's all of these unplanned and unprepared for moments that make life so memorable. 

Whether it's soaking up all the sweet newborn snuggles or cherishing the giggles and pitter patter of little feet, I'm here to help you remember it all. It is my goal to capture these sweet everyday moments that often go unnoticed, but looking back, they make up our memories. Cuddling your little ones, big kids running around, laughter, and time spent together. These are some of my favorite things to photograph.



"She was so knowledgeable and helpful in guiding my family into poses that looked great (since myself and my family really didn't know what we wee doing) and also captured so many beautiful candid shots as well. Having these photos done in the comfort of our own home was such a great experience as well with Michelle. The photos turned out absolutely stunning and I couldn't have asked for a better experience and outcome - I 100% recommend Michelle Bordenkircher Photography to anyone looking for a relaxing, fun experience that has beautiful end results. Thank you Michelle for these photos I will cherish forever and I look forward to hiring you in the future as well for more milestone photos of my family!!" -Cassie & Brandon

Having Michelle photograph my daughter's newborn session was an absolute dream

"She’s super flexible and easy to work with. She did a fantastic job working around my crazy kids while still getting the best shots of my family. Definitely recommend!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We received our sneak peaks the day after our session and our full gallery within a couple days! So quick and so easy. Loved the entire experience!"
-Samantha & Daniel

Michelle did a fabulous job documenting the sweetest family moments with our newborn and chaotic family of 5

"I'm already looking forward to booking our next session! Michelle was easy to work with, affordable, had great quality pictures, and had a super quick turnaround time: We loved working with Michelle!"

I can't stop looking at the pictures from our session

Reach out as soon as possible. I'll write your due date down in my calendar, then when baby actually comes just let me know, and we'll set a firm date for your newborn session from there!

Maternity photos are typically best taken anytime between 30-34 weeks. By this time you've developed a nice baby bump and typically aren't too uncomfortable. 

Newborn photos are typically best taken within the baby's first fourteen days. 


I have a free outfit guide that I would be happy to send to you! Typically I recommend lighter colors and coordinating outfits instead of matching.

Baby a lot of times will be in a diaper wrapped up in a swaddle, or simply in a onesie or a sleeper. 


Newborn photos are always taken in the home!

Maternity sessions are at a location of your choice, which a lot of times will be in a park or at a location that is meaningful to you. If you need suggestions, I'd be happy to give you a list of my favorite spots!

what location should i choose?

As soon as you know you'd like to work together for maternity and/or newborn photos, reach out! This may seem early if you have nine months to wait, but reaching out early will ensure a spot on the calendar - I hate having to turn anyone away because I am already booked the month baby is due!


I do! Up to 60 miles of travel is included in any newborn & maternity session. If you're outside of those 60 miles I'd love to chat about my travel rate!

do you travel?

Head on over to the contact page and send me a message. I'll respond within 48 hours and answer any questions you may have! 


A deposit is due before we are official. Once the deposit has been paid I will write your dates in my calendar and then look forward to meeting you!!

  • 60 minute sessions
  • 45+ edited images per session
  • Online gallery of high resolution images

Your newborn session has happened. It was sweet and snuggly and your photos are beautiful. Instead of just downloading your images to your hard drive and sharing a link with your family and friends, you take it a step further and invest in a family heirloom keepsake that will help you remember these beautiful (and hectic) first days. Baby books can be hard to keep up with, so let me take care of this for you.

Now, try to fast forward even further...

Envision yourself sitting in your living room with your future four year old and they're asking questions about when they were a baby. You look at them and say, “Hold on one minute, ok?” and you grab your legacy album. As you flip through the pages, half of the album in your lap and the other half in theirs, you.start to reminisce about when they were so little. If your child is anything like ours, they will be in awe of these old pictures. Legacy albums aren’t just for you, they are also for those that come after you. What a beautiful gift to hand down to future generations!
