Remember your baby's first Christmas with these Keepsakes

Every Christmas, along with all the fancy, pretty decorations, my mum still gets out decorations from when we were a baby and when we were at school.

Darcie's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

I first met the lovely Montgomery family back in 2015 when they were expecting their first son, George.  We've done Maternity, Newborn, Christmas, 6 month & 1 year shoots together and it's been really great getting to know them and watching little George grow up.

Top Mummy YouTubers & Why You Should Watch Them!

Top Mummy YouTubers & Why You Should Watch Them!

Beside the usual cat videos, over the last few years the world has been taken by storm by children watching other children open and play with toys, adults acting out scenes with toys (yes, this is apparently acceptable) and tweenagers falling in love with YouTubers just like we did with pop stars.

If you think youtube is just for children and weirdoes though, you are very wrong!

Mum (and dad!) vloggers are taking to YouTube in force, sharing the ups and downs of pregnancy, children and family life. 
 

And when I say ups and downs, I mean it.
