It's been a very exciting time at Baby Box HQ, with a new product photo shoot to keep us busy and a new range of hampers too! With the inclusion of so many new products and hampers, we thought it was about time we had a new range of photographs to really do them justice.
On Thursday 4th, we headed over to see our photographer in his studio near Northampton, for a shoot day. Andy Nickerson specialises in family portrait photography, which is just what we needed to photograph our new range of clothing (due in next month) and new hampers - we thought we'd better some images in place while we had a model!. Here is a sneak preview of things to come...
Behind the scenes at the photo shoot. Andy's wife Debbie was a nurse so is fantastic at moving babies into photogenic poses. Children's photographer Northamptonshire.
By popular demand we've increased our range of dedicated girls and boys hampers to make your gift choosing even easier. For the girls...
Starting at just £25, our girl's boxes are priced to suit every budget. Our medium girl's hamper contains essential baby clothes, from our very own hand-printed selection, which are all 100% cotton so ideal for both winter and summer wear. Add to that a pair of best selling bright pink Sock Ons and one of the new selection of toys, a Lamaze Little Grip Bunny. These are perfect to keep baby entertained whilst out and about, a great handheld size.
Progressing to the £40 girls box, we see the inclusion of one of our favourite new products the Crochet Octopus in pink by Pebble. She just looks so lovely when you open the box and her smiley face looking up at you! Again we've included a range of clothing, and also a new print Aden and Anais Musy we've just had in called 'For the Birds', which come's in three gorgeous pink and grey prints.
My Friend Emily doll by Lamaze is one of the stars in our £60 girl's box. Attach her to the side of a cot or pram and your little girl will be mesmerized for hours. Where we can we always think it is important to include a little treat for new mums. With the lavender and patchouli bath salts by Wild Olive, not only does your hamper smell amazing when opened but have relaxing and rejuvenating properties when added to a bath of warm running water...perfect!
And for the new little prince in your lives....
Similarly to the girls, our medium boy's box contains clothing from our own range. To be honest you can never have too many basic items of clothing as newborn babies get through them so quickly. The beauty about these is that they are really easy to put on and look great as a 'going out' outfit (which we all know with a new baby is an ordeal in itself!) Again we have Sock Ons in navy this time, a Lamaze Feel me Fish to add a pop of colour and a great little toy to carry in your changing bag.
With its colour scheme of blue's and greys the £40 boys box is anything but old-fashioned. With stripes and animal print's galore, topped off with a blue octopus, what more could you want from a baby gift?!
Rawr! from George the dinosaur, the fab knitted dinosaur that is the star of the final boy's box, priced at £60. He looks great in this hamper selection and really is a toy that will stand the test of time, and will sure to be one of your little boy's favourites as he grows up. As all mums, (especially new ones) need a treat, we have a selection of bath truffles which include our favourite one - white chocolate, mmm! One final item to note, amongst all the other clothes and muslins, is the Organic Monkey Better Belly Oil, winner of a Bizzie Baby Silver award. A few drop's of this orange scented oil rubbed into a babies tummy, really helps to soothe an upset or colicky stomach, helping your little one to sleep soundly - bliss!
We hope you like our new range of products. A great deal of time and care has been taken in choosing exactly what we put into them, so your loved ones receive a gift that is not only beautiful and modern but really practical as well.
