Three of the best newborn gift ideas raved about by Small Prints mums.

January 15, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

 

Whether you are a parent to be, or a grandma or relative looking for the perfect gift it can be hard to know what to give that will be a beautiful keepsake or a practical well-used gift. I asked some of our clients which were the best 3 baby gifts they received on or before their babies arrival and these are the just three of the gifts they raved about. 

Claire mummy of 2 boys I've had the pleasure of photographing, said

"The Boy Who Lost His Name Book. was our favourite gift, it's a personalised gift so it makes a lovely keepsake. I've give one to all our family and friends since receiving"

You can see those here and even preview the book as you create it. You don't have a lot to do, all you put in is the child's name and their super duper software creates the book and previews it for you, how cool is that! You can order online from Wonderbly.com 

Debra, recommended the Tommee Tippee travel bottle warmer flask. Again it's a simple thing. But it's perfectly sized and equips you with the hot water and container you need to perfectly fit babies bottle of either expressed milk or formula when out and about. I remember we had one of these too and I'd second that and it's quite inexpensive for the amount of use we got from it. 

Debra said "I got a Tommee tippee flask. Perfect for when your out and about with the little one for a good few hours. Fits perfectly in my changing bag. And the water obviously stays hot very a very long time"

Clare said The best gift she received was a buggy organiser. 

"My friend gave me a buggy organiser which I can put my keys, purse, wipes, tissues etc save me finding it in the bag. I give all my friends one now."  

The one Clare has is just here but there are many on the market when you go looking such a small but practical thing can help such alot when you have so much to do and so much to keep eyes on with a newborn while out traveling or shopping. 

What were your favourite gifts or purchases?

Don't forget if you are looking for a very timeless, very special gift for a new baby, or the gift for someone who has everything already, then Small Prints has gift vouchers available for any chosen amount. Newborn photography is a lasting gift that both parents and baby will treasure in years to come.

Baby Odin otherwise known as baby 'Olaf'!

Baby Odin was just so sweet I'm having a ball editing his gallery! So many beautiful shots of him and his big sister too. She loved him being dressed as "Olaf" I hope she has stopped calling him that now, or I'm in trouble! Christmas shots with your newborn are SO much fun. They will never be this small again! 


Newborn Twins rock their newborn session at Small Prints

November 02, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

It's always a privilege to be asked to photograph a newborn baby, but twice as much of a privilege when I'm asked to document the first early days of twins! It's almost like getting a little sneak peek of how babies would be snuggled together close inside during pregnancy.  

Here is a little preview of our lastest twins in the studio, two beautiful baby girls.


Tips on keeping your session files safe.

September 10, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This is just a reminder to back up your digital files regularly. This post was prompted a couple of weeks ago when I was contacted by a family I had photographed around 18 months ago. They had loaded their USB to a laptop and none of the photos would load or show up correctly, this meant they could not view or print from them :-(.

In this case, thank goodness, the laptop was to blame and the files were safe and showed and loaded correctly on another computer. Thankfully I'd kept their files as they were to be printed on some studio samples and displays, so in this case, I'd have been able to help if the worst had happened. But I can not keep files for everyone indefinitely and many images must be deleted to keep our systems working to an optimum. 

However, imagine for a moment if it was the USB that had corrupted. I may not still have your files, as our files are turned over and storage is formatted and overwritten quite regularly due to the demand for my work.

Our USB's are the highest quality, but digital media can not be relied upon as archival storage.

 

So, here are some tips to minimise the chance of any problems

  • PRINT what is most precious to you (it's your best back up) Albums are great for this as you can show off a large selection of images in a small space.



  • back up ALL the photos in several locations
  1. for example- copy to grandmas house (off site storage) in case of fire, flood, etc.
  2. A copy in the cloud (online storage) accessable from anywhere in the world should you own system fail, or even if you want to share with relatives abroad.
  3. A copy on a hard drive and/or a 'hard' copy on another high-quality USB kept in another location at home.
  • Keep your Small Prints copy as a MASTER copy and check on the files once in a while. Make a copy to print from if using suppliers locally, so that you guard yourself against viruses from systems elsewhere. 
  • Always eject media correctly from your computer before removing from your laptop/pc/mac/laptop
  • Store media in a cool dry dust free place, away from any magnetic fields and extreme temperature fluctuations. Store with any covers supplied placed on the USB components.

Baby Innes - Youngest apprentice builder! Baby photography, Monymusk, Inverurie

September 09, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I was delighted to be asked to photography Baby Innes for Emma & Mark. Mark's a builder and owns his own company Mark Paterson Builder Ltd so as well as natural images, we also created some with his new son posed in his builders bucket alongside some of his builders tools. 

Innes rocked his newborn session and was a little charmer, I have a huge gallery and i'm not sure how Mark and Emma will choose which to showcase on their walls. These are just a few of my favourites.

Inne's Dad is also a bit of a magician, and a member of The Magic Circle so we had to bring that through in a themed shot too.

Can you imagine the fun Innes will have at his birthday parties one day?

Even though we bring through themes we also do natural shots, just to show how beautiful babies are just on their own.

 

This wee crate was brought along by Mark and Emma, Innes will use it as a toy box through the coming years.  

There are much much more images to come ... I can't wait to share those too.
