Top 3 MUST HAVES for your New Baby

Hey all!! This is of two & owner of LDT Photography located in downtown Belleville IL (just outside St. Louis)

Not sure what to put on your baby registry?? I’ve got you covered. These 3 items below are a MUST-HAVE for new parents!! Check out my tried and true products to have ready before you bring baby home from hospital.

1) Amazon Shusher

Clients have called me a "baby whisper." I truly couldn't do it without the help of white noise to create a soothing,calm enivornment. This is my top must have! I use this in my studio for every newborn session. It’s battery operated so you can take it on the go anywhere. I would definitely get 2…one for your house and 1 for the diaper bag (car rides, grandmas house, and more).

2) Utility Cart

This is a lifesaver. Having all your essentials in one location is SUPER important. I don’t know about you but I hate running around to different rooms of our house trying to find something. This will be your one stop shop for baby. Store Diapers, wipes, pacifiers, moisturizer, vaseline, hand sanitizer… you name it. The portable cart helps declutter and save time searching for things.

3) Baby Lounger

Lastly, is this cute little lounger. This comes in handy for so many situations! Whether getting baby dressed, changing diapers, playing, and more...this lounger has a lot of uses. During your newborns session, I use this lounger to keep baby comfy in between poses, while wrapping baby, outfit changing, and more. I do not know what I would do without it.

I sure hope these tips help all the new parents out there. Congratulations on your little one!!!!

Cutest little Bub!! Dark Blue & Neutrals | Illinois Newborn Photographer

So I just have to start off by saying this guy was a real unicorn baby (what us newborn photogs call incredibly sleepy babes). He literally slept the whole session and I got so many sweet images of him!! I love them all, especially the black and whites at the end. I was trying to wake him up at the very end to get just 1 awake shot. This little guy had other plans LOL.

He must have loved the soothing sounds and warm air in the studio. He was sleeping so good and showed me what he thought about me trying to wake him up (scroll to the last set of images to see). Too cute <3
