HGP Photographer’s Assistant
The Baby Whisperer, Decatur Il
I'm frequently called the baby whisperer. Frankly, anyone who enjoys success in the field of newborn photography will be called this at some point in their career. I have spent a great deal of time and money ensuring not only your baby's safety, but cooperation and sleepiness! ;) Below are my favorites little tips and tricks for your sessions, many of which can be carried over to when you're home without the baby whisperer.
This happens in a variety of ways. First of all- we keep it super warm in the studio- you're baby will be naked for the most part after all. Once they're swaddled, we turn the heat off. With that said, your house should be kept around 68-70 degrees. They say babes should be clothed in only one additional later to what you're wearing.
Secondly- white noise. You can go a few different routes here, but usually something is needed.

This post may feel a bit redundant, but I wanted to have an actual blog post live about it because it was probably one of my favorite Facebook posts I've ever made.
Why am I a newborn photographer?
I do this because I've been there. And I can't tell you how much I regret NOT investing in a session for my oldest.
I've been through the adrenaline rush you feel once you're holding your newborn after nine long months of pregnancy....
And then the baby blues that hit.
Then your baby starts waking up more, and while you love seeing their peepers, it means the nights are longer, and sleep is harder to come by.
One day their milk bumps fade. You don't realize it though.
The next they're holding their heads up watching the world.
