Packing your Hospital Bag… you’re having a Baby!

So while most of us are packing our suitcases for that Summer Holiday, many of you will be packing a bag for a completely different adventure......having a Baby!! Your due date is fast approaching and labour is imminent. Denial is working no longer, this baby is coming out and it is time to pack a bag ready for the big occasion. Most people opt for two, purely because of the amount of things you need and it is a great way of staying organised. Rather than packing a baby and a mama bag though, packing a labour bag and an after bag can help your birth partner find the right things when you need them. The Labour Bag Labour can [...]

Things I Wish I knew…. before having a Baby 

At 8.10am 19 years ago today, I became a Mother, when my beautiful daughter, Carrigan was born. I remember the day like it was yesterday....... the overwhelming rush of emotion and the complete high that this beautiful baby was mine. I thought as a qualified midwife that I was fairly well prepared for caring for a newborn......But...... Nothing will ever prepare you for motherhood, no books or antenatal classes, no anecdotes or time spent with friends, no apps or midwifes. It is an experience impossible to really communicate and one which binds generations of mothers. But still, there are things we all wish we had known before having a baby, to stop us worrying, to keep us sane and to [...]

January Birthdays are no Fun!

Having a birthday in January is no fun at all......in fact it is a little rubbish really! I am a January baby with my birthday on 13th and also managed to make my son a January baby too with his birthday on the 19th. What can you expect from a January birthday? No-one really wants to go out for your birthday...including myself usually....as the post-Christmas diet and exercise regimen is usually well under way. It's cold outside and so people would rather just stay indoors watching television and the films and the box sets they got for Christmas than go out to celebrate. Your special day just seems to have no shine to it after all the festivities of Christmas [...]

New Year Give-away

New Year Give-away Well the year has come to an end..........and what a year it has been!! I turned 50 years old and celebrated my 20th Wedding Anniversary! The year for Kidz Unlimited Photographic Studio started off quietly but got busier and busier as the year progressed. The year saw me photographing 72 Newborn Babies, including 3 sets of twins. I do feel so honoured to have been chosen to capture all these new babies as this really is my passion. I 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 also find it very encouraging that of these 2015 newborns.........16 of them [...]

Herne Bay Cake Smash shoot – Ellaria 1 Year old

This little girl has definitely travelled the furthest to have her photo shoot in our studio. Ellaria lives in Perth, Australia but was out on holiday visiting family in Herne Bay for the Christmas holiday period. The shoot was booked for her by her UK Family and so all the preparations for her shoot was done by Facetime, Facebook Messages and e-mails. Mum and Dad wanted the new popular Smash & Splash Photo Shoot for Ellaria. So the shoot included a warm-up first scene followed by the Cake Smash Scene and the Bath Scene. Her parents wanted it all to be very girly and pink with a snowflake theme for her Cake Smash. Ellaria came into the studio on the [...]

Margate Newborn Photographer – Katie Christine 4 weeks old

Margate Newborn Photographer - Katie Christine 4 weeks old It only seems like yesterday when I was taking photos of Katie’s big sister, Jennifer... but here we are two and half years years later with little Katie Christine in the studio. What a little sweetheart she is, I really enjoyed having lots of cuddles with her. As a newborn she’s so different to her big sister, much chubbier and with dark hair compared to Jennifer's red hair.....but you can still see they are sisters! It was so lovely to see Jennifer again too. She is just so beautiful with her gorgeous red hair and did so well posing with Katie. Katie is a little older than most newborns I have in [...]
