Hope you’ve had a lovely Easter and aren’t too full from all those eggs!
It’s been a while since I’ve spoken to you all, so thought I’d give you a little update on what’s been happening, exciting collaborations and new ventures I’m undertaking.
Firstly, here at Little Star Images we have been working closely with a few brands, to make your experience even more special and offer you help and support beyond your newborn shoot! If you would like to see the individual businesses Facebook Pages please click on the image to be taken directly there!
I would like to introduce a few of these businesses run by mums like me, starting with The Handmade Nursery Company a local mum here in Plymouth who makes bunting and name decorations to match all colour schemes and styles of your nursery! These are beautiful creations, completely personal to your little ones and make fantastic additions to their room. Starting from her lounge in 2016, her business flourished and she now sells on Etsy so be sure to check her products out.
Next up is Berry and Blossom, I have been receiving clothes from them for shoots for a while now and they are just adorable, I mean look at this little outfit! If your child would like to be photographed in any of the selections I have, then please just ask while you are attending your newborn shoot and I will happily accommodate you. A free print of your little one in the outfit will be given as well as a unique discount code to be used on their online store.
Now every parent feels like they could do with a more sleep or relaxation time at some point in their day to help them destress, so that is why I had to introduce my next local mum business here in Plymouth, Chilled Cherub Baby Massage and Yoga. This company provides the ideal opportunity to learn how to massage your baby properly and bond with them, thus allowing you to incorporate this into your daily sleep routine. It promotes a longer and deeper sleep for your baby which means more time for you to feel human again! We all know that feeling! So why not take a look at their page and book in with them now and mention us!
Next is our wonderful mummy from Dartmoor, Grace, who created Edie & Ava a company selling baby gyms, using local, natural, organic products, as well as beautiful garlands and accessories. Another fantastic reason to support this local mummy is her generous donations to two charities after her own worrying story. Ava developed Sepsis at just 8 weeks old and spent a week in the High Dependency Unit at Torbay Hospital, fortunately she survived and is now fit and well but for many the outcome isn’t so positive. For every product sold* she will be donating £2 to charity – £1 to the Sepsis Trust and £1 to the Louisa Cary Ward at Torbay Hospital so get onto her website and buy, buy, buy!
Following on from Grace, we have the delightful Queen of Tarts, again another local Plymouth based company, who make soy wax melts and tarts. They have an Etsy based shop and all the wax melts are handmade and poured by themselves, with dupe scents from well know perfume brands, as well as other retails and products. They smell amazing and I shall be including one in my goody bag at a new, local event I will be participating in called Broody to Baby and Beyond, see below for details!
Lastly I would like to introduce the very lovely mum Anouska’s business Think Change Hypnotherapy, a wonderful lady who specialises in Hypnobirthing. What is that you may ask? Well you know all those fears and anxieties you have about giving birth, the pain you will endure etc.? This lady has all that covered with her Hypnobirthing plan, to help alleviate those fears and make your labour a far more relaxing, enjoyable experience.
I hope you’ve enjoyed learning about my partnerships and if you would like to see some of these fantastic companies including myself then be sure to join us at the Broody to Baby and Beyond Event Sunday 22nd April, 10.30am , at the Guildhall Plymouth. It looks to be a great event for you to support and talk with your local baby related businesses. It would be fantastic to see lots of you there and to see your growing little ones too. There will be interactive activities, a sleep expert talk, my own little goody bags and great offers too for any of you lovely ladies visiting with your beautiful bumps! Hope to see you there!
