The care and attention to detail were incredible. This is our first child, and we had no idea what to expect going into this experience. Linda put us at ease, and we had a wonderful time watching our baby with different outfits and props. The session ended up lasting over two hours, and Linda was able to transition our baby to different outfits masterfully with minimal to no fuss. The studio is kept warm to keep the baby comfortable, but we honestly felt perfectly comfortable ourselves. Linda sends suggestions for things to do before arriving at the session. DO THOSE THINGS. I do not know if we would have had a peaceful happy angel for the entire session had we not followed Linda’s expert advice. This is truly Linda’s calling, and she is a master of her craft. Trust her, and you will have gorgeous photos of your new bundle of joy! We could not be more pleased.

Womblike Newborn Image Lovin the Light Photography GainesvilleLinda is a true professional and does fantastic work! After a quick search and recommendations from others, there was no doubt we would use Linda for our newborn photo shoot. Upon the pre consultation, Linda showed us her studio and the numerous props, headbands, hats, blankets, etc. I was impressed with the numerous options of colors, props, and headbands!! Once our little one was born and we set a date, Linda was extremely patient with our little girl. She took her time, used numerous different headpieces and didn’t even flinch when our girl pooped on her…..twice. Pretty sure she is a baby whisperer! Watching our precious girl brought tears to my eyes! I knew the pictures would turn out perfect and boy was I right. The pictures are stunning and her work speaks for itself. I would absolutely recommend Linda with lovin the light without hesitation.

A friend of mine convinced me that I needed professional newborn photos, and that I needed to book them with Linda- and I’m thrilled that we did. Linda’s Studio is so nice and welcoming (an important quality when you’re going to spend hours in a place) as was she and her assistant. She is so patient and caring with your newbornNatural Pose White Knitted Footed Onsie 10 day old baby boy testimonial Lovin the Light, and doesn’t rush the process whatsoever.

Testimonial Review Kind WordsLinda is incredibly talented and such a joy to work with. You will be so pleased with everything from her communication, passion and skills with the babies, quality of her photographs, and presentation of photo collections. I loved how natural and organic her photographs look. We are returning for 6 month and 1 year photos! We love her.

I was so pleased with the whole experience with Lovin the Light. I love how our photos turned out with our baby girl. They are stunning. I love Linda’s timeless style in her photography. Linda (and her assistant Shari) are baby whisperers! I was so impressed. There is definitely an art to getting those shots. The time in the studio was a breeze also. They do all the work in getting the babies back to sleep and in the various positions, provide refreshments, and are seriously the sweetest people. I enjoyed the whole experience and have the loveliest photos to treasure forever 🙂 thank you!

Newborn Baby Boy Portrait Lovin the Light Gainesville FL Getting our little one’s pictures done by Linda was a great choice! She was so patient and worked so well with our son and made sure he was comfortable too (giving him a little break to feed) Linda keeps the room very warm for the baby, but left out snack and water for us to have while they worked. We were made to feel very comfortable while she worked with him. The entire process took about two hours, but it went by so quickly- we loved watching her work with our little one. I cannot recommend her enough! My husband and I were both very impressed with the entire process. Highly recommend!

Linda has an amazing gift. We’ve been fortunate to have her photograph both of our sons as newborns and our family as a whole. She has endless patience and works tirelessly to capture the best possible images. I highly recommend Linda, her photographs are works of art.

Allison Grant

Did a lot of research on Newborn photographers in the Gainesville area as well as outside of Gainesville, I was willing to travel to get the best. Linda is definitely the best around. From how she handled our baby to the endless props, sheets, headbands, hats etc..her and her assistant were amazing. We will be using her in the future for upcoming sessions with our daughter!! 12/10 I would rate her if I could!

I loved EVERYTHING about my experience with Linda and Lovin’ the Light. She was so gentle with my newborn and took so much time making sure that we were comfortable and that she got the perfect images. We will continue to have her photograph our son as he grows. What an amazing experience!

Emma Caudill

Like any mother I wanted my baby’s newborn picture to be memorable. I decided to go with Linda and am very happy that I chose her. Absolutely loved every picture taken by her. She is great with babies, it was amazing how she handled my lil one and was able to make her pose perfectly for each picture. Because of her I have really lovely memories. I strongly recommend her for newborn photography!!.

Our walls are covered with amazing photographs taken by Linda Bainter. She has captured us as we became a family of three and the again as we became a family of four. It is just amazing to see the amount of time, patience, and skill it takes to photograph both of our babies as newborns. Our sessions never felt rushed. We would stop for feedings, diaper changes, and even a little breather for our toddler. Linda is so gentle and easygoing with both kids that our daughter made it through the session without a meltdown. Ms. Shari, her lovely friend and assistant was also there to help with our babies. Photo session are about getting the perfect picture, but also the event of taking them. We always have a fun time during our session and they will be fond memories we will keep forever. Thank you, Linda for capturing so many special moments in our lives: maternity, newborn, and birthdays.

One reason I would want to have more babies is to have Linda Bainter capture their beauty on camera! Those three precious hours that she spent with my newborn were priceless. A few times I caught myself crying as I watched Linda and her assistant patiently bring Clara, my 14 day old baby, into the perfect position for such gorgeous shots. Sitting in her studio is a relaxing, peace filled, and joyous experience. She is the only photographer that we will go to in the future as her product was worth every penny. The prints came out flawlessly and we are so excited that we already have Christmas gifts for family taken care of. Thank you Linda Bainter for using the gift that God has given you. And for anyone reading this review…stop now and set up an appointment with Linda…you won’t regret it!

Amber Northcutt

I have used them several times and they get better every time. I had them do my newborn photo shoot recently. My baby was super fussy and refused to sleep. They were so patient and it took 5 1/2 hours but with their help I finally got her calmed down enough to sleep and get some great shots. There is no other photographer that I know that would wait that long and be that patient-if they hadn’t been I wouldn’t have any pictures.

Janeen Smart

Awesome photographer! Linda is professional and she knows her gift of photography… and it shows! I will use her work on all of my promotional materials.

Kandra Albury

Linda with Lovin’ the Light Photography is amazing. She is the sweetest person and really takes her time to get to know you and your family. She made my husband and I feel very comfortable during our maternity photos. Newborn photos were truly remarkable to watch as Linda is a baby whisperer! The pictures turned out fantastic and we will be using her again in the future for our family photos.

Sarah B

Linda captured our pregnancy and our little girl perfectly. She was friendly and really made us comfortable throughout the entire experience. We couldn’t be happier with the images she was able to capture. We have become lifetime customers and can’t wait until we use Linda’s services again! I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!
