    Ginger Easter with Gigglebox photography has been the best photographer my family has worked with. Disappointed she’s not on your list.

      Stephanie, thanks for the comment! We reached out to many local photographers regarding inclusion in this list and we did not hear back from many of them. We are more than happy to add them to the Reader Recommended section at the bottom per your endorsement!

        Take a look at Sandra Fink photography – she’s a newborn photographer who has taken safety classes related to the wrapping and posing of your newborn. She can be reached at [email protected] or 859.866.0123, if you’d prefer to speak directly. If you’d like to see her work, it can be viewed at or her Facebook page

    I suggest Capture the Moment photographer, Shawna. You can find her on facebook under Capture the Moment (Bellevue, KY) or contact her by phone 859-835-0428. She does wonderful work. Some of you might recognize her from taking the hospital photos for MOM365.

    Sara Simonson Photography is phenomenal! She should definitely be on this list. She is extremely talented!
