Is the following sentence correct?

So much so, that when looking at baby pictures you couldn't tell the two apart.

So alike, that when looking at baby pictures you couldn't tell the two apart.

Is this better?

No the sentence is not correct, because it is a fragment.

This is the sentence before...

When Jayden was born he even looked exactly like Adrianna.

I would say When Jayden was born he looked exactly like Adrianna - so much so that their baby pictures are identical.

You need to add a subject. In this sentence you cannot tell what you are referring to.
For example:
" The children look so alike that ,when looking at baby photos, you can't tell the two apart."

ok that's what I had but it just seemed to long, and I didn't have that last comma thank you.
