There are many reasons I love being a newborn photographer. Yes there is the fact I get to work with teeny tiny humans on a weekly basis, but I also get to deliver gorgeous products for families to remember those first teeny tiny days forever.
Here are some of my latest orders, all carefully packaged and hand delivered to their new homes.
Oliver's Newborn Album
First of all let me apologise for the terrible quality of this video - all will be explained!
Oliver came to me from Leamington Spa for his Newborn Shoot a few weeks ago. His mum and dad ordered the Digital Images, 10 Prints and an Album.
They really wanted the album to match their wedding album so I designed a custom, acrylic fronted, navy blue leather bound package of gorgeousness.
I usually hand deliver products but as they live so far away I got the album posted directly to them. Luckily enough I was invited to Oliver's Christening a few weeks later and I got to see the album in person.
I was a bit restricted with where I could take photos with all of the christening goers around so I took a quick video to show just how lovely this album is.
Alex's Newborn Prints
Alex's mum (my best friend!) had the brilliant idea of having a bundle of 6x4 prints printed as a thank you gift to her mum and new mother-in-law on her wedding day. They framed one and left the others in a bundle for them to look through, which they did many times throughout the day.
The Twins Newborn Float Frame and USB
Now if you've been around here a while you'll know the Float Frame is my favourite product that I offer. The image is mounted onto the perspex front making it float away from the background. I particularly like it with a black and white image, which is exactly what Jacob & Imogen's mum chose.
They also ordered the 10 prints and all the digitals so I designed them a matching USB box.
It was all lovingly wrapped and hand delivered to Flamstead.
Elsie's First Birthday Photo Shoot
At Elsie's Reveal Session her mum told me they planned on putting together a gallery wall of images from the shoot by their front door. We went through all the photos and picked out all the favourites in sizes ranging from 5x7s to 8x12s. She's promised me a picture once they're all up on the wall!
They also wanted a piece of art so we held up all the different sizes and wall art types to their living room wall to see what they liked best.
They winner was a 20x30 canvas and can I just say - that canvas is blimmin' gorgeous! Ordering wall art that big can be daunting as I want to make sure it's perfect and this canvas certainly is.
Casper & Jake's Newborn Album
These pictures are actually a bit of a sneak peek because I haven't actually delivered this order yet!
This family decided to combine the images from their first son's photo shoot in 2015 with their second son's images in 2017 into one album.
I designed the pages so some had a mixture of both boy's images and other pages were devoted to one photo shoot.
It's the first time i've ordered the album cover in the colour 'Wine' and it's just beautiful.
As soon as they have chosen what images they'd like in the frame they've ordered i'll be packing it up and delivering it to them in St Albans.
