It has been a VERY slow and difficult start to this year. After a mini break between Christmas and New Year and then the year starting with a death of my lovely Mum-in-Law, I feel like the year has started without me. I am 2 weeks behind everyone!! So as I normally do at the beginning of the year, here is my Annual GIVEAWAY and a look back at all the NEWBORNS of 2017 and what we got up to last year.
So yet another year has come to an end. It has again been a busy one which started with the move of the business in January 2017 to new premises in Broadstairs. So the first half of the year saw us completing the building of the new studio and settling into new surroundings and routines The first few months of the year were SUPER BUSY with lots of shoots and getting on top of the HUGE backlog of editing resulting from the move and the then busy start of the year.
The year saw me photographing 64 Newborn Babies. There were 29 girls and 35 boys……and this also included 2 sets of twins, all of whom were boys this year!! It was definitely a year of more boys!!! I do feel so honoured to have been chosen to capture all these new babies. Thank you for bringing all these precious babies to me. I do love nothing more than a day in the studio with a cuddly, squishy newborn photographing all those tiny features that change and develop so quickly. I marvel constantly at the miracle of birth and the amazing way that these tiny little babies grow and develop into little people. I also find it very encouraging that of these 2017 newborns………17 of them have siblings who had also come to me as a newborn. It is always so special to be a part of capturing your growing families.
Here are all the special little Newborns of 2017
The “Little Miracles” Baby Plan has also meant that many of these little newborns have been back to the studio for their Sitting Baby Photo Shoots and will be coming back for their One Year Old Shoots this year. We have also this year seen an increase in the number of Cake Smash Shoots and the new Smash & Splash Shoots with 27 babies coming in over 2017 to celebrate their 1st or 2nd birthdays. We have had lots of fun creating some new themes like Jemima Puddleduck, Peppa Pig and Finding Dorrie. As well as the old favourites like The Hungry Caterpillar and Rainbows and Unicorns.
