Baby Photography

Since I had my first baby the capturing of pregnancy, newborns and babies has certainly grown in popularity! Everywhere you look you can find a photographer who enjoys capturing these special journeys in our lives, each taking just a slightly different angle and adding their own talent to the shot.

When I found out I was expecting our second beautiful baby and due just before we were due to travel to Perth for a family wedding I immediately contacted a gorgeous friend of mine and booked in for photography of our newborn and newly expanded family. Given I was due the 16th of March and we were due to go on the 25th of March all we needed was for bub to agree with us and arrive early or on time! Thankfully our beautiful boy Angus arrived 2 weeks early on the 1st of March. And so it was set, we confirmed the 31st of March as the day Fiona of Fiona Rogerson Photography would get use her talent on our family!

I was so excited to have a wonderful friend and beautiful person in Fiona to capture our boys. Her passion for photography and newborns really comes through in the photos she manages to get. It is no easy feat let me tell you, Hamish at 3 years old can be difficult at the best of times but Fee and her wonderful assistant were able to manage both boys to ensure we had a smooth easy photo session with no tears. I am sure that knowing Fee made the experience even more comfortable, but I truly believe that her relaxed and laid back nature and beautiful soul shine through and would make any baby or child also feel relaxed as a result.

I am now very excited to arrange our photos on our wall and will ofcourse share photos when we get them all up. For those in Perth, I highly recommend you give Fiona a call!! And now for a few photos...

Things are cuter in smaller sizes

There are some products we get in store, well actually most of the products we get in store that force me buy for my boys! With Winter on our doorsteps I just had to pop into our store the other morning and buy my little Angus his first pair of shoes (Simply J Crochet loafers). I've blogged about these before, but seriously could you GET any cuter!

Newest cloth addition

The Pop In Nappy by Close Parent is the newest Cloth nappy addition to Handle With Care.

The Pop-In is a next-generation One Size Fits Most (OSFM) all-in-one (AIO) nappy, in that the inner soaker attaches to the outer shell by means of poppers so you can take it apart (when you want to wash it) and put it back together (when you’ve washed and dried it before putting it on the baby).
The nappy is comprised of 3 parts; the outer shell, the inner soaker and the insert, all of which popper together to form an all-in-one nappy. The inner soaker fastens to the outer shell with 2 poppers at the front and 3 at the back – you’ll find the popper sockets on the outer shell underneath the pockets.

I was fortunate enough to try this nappy on my newest addition recently and I am so impressed with the double gusseted legs allowing extra leak protection and the fit makes it perfect to hug little bottoms nice and snuggly.

We are so please to have this new nappy on board at HWC, we hope that our larger range helps our customers to create a nappy package perfect for their little person.
Until next time,
