"Melanie Baeten, you should start a second business and market yourself as the "Baby Whisperer!" Thank you for being so patient and sweet with our little guy. The first couple of photos really capture him! I love them. You were simply wonderful to work with."

"We so enjoyed everything about this was a completely happy, although tear-filled on my end, and stress-free session, watching you work so carefully with our new little bundle, creating such beautiful and artful images. So glad we found you! We couldn't be happier!"

"Wow, they are absolutely beautiful! :) We are so happy with how they turned out! Thank you for doing such an amazing job capturing images of our newborn daughter. We were both very impressed with the level of care and patience you had when photographing Norah. Your studio was very welcoming and comfortable for us while you were doing the shoot. Thank you for that as well. :)"

"Melanie, thank you for making a sleep-deprived mom's dreams come true! Where do you get your patience? You'd spend 20 minutes posing him, then he'd startle and you'd get him right back in position without skipping a beat. Another client said you are the baby whisperer, and I can't think of a better way to describe you! Not only did you capture every adorable detail of our new bundle of joy (your pictures speak for themselves...each one cuter than the next), but I was really worried about entertaining my toddler during the session. Your studio is set up so perfectly, with a comfy play area (& tv) across the room from the staging area. We wanted family & sibling pics, and this made the entire experience stress-free. My toddler even loved the session, and you took the most beautiful photos of her as well. Thanks to you, we have completely refreshed our living room wall gallery!"

Love is an understatement, LOL! They are beyond perfect. I can't even decide on favorites because they are all so beautiful! The shoot was so fun too. I was amazed watching you work your magic. It's got to be incredibly difficult just to work with one baby, much less two! The way you soothe the babies and don't get flustered if they start fussing. I think your calmness rubs off on them, LOL. Not to mention your eye for color and composition in your photos, and your attention to the small details, each piece of fabric and every tiny finger and toe perfectly arranged. You truly have a gift. ❤
