My 1st Photos, A clever business created in Guildford by two friends.
When I came across the business of these ladies I was blown away with their idea. As you can imagine, as a person that loves photos, and believe that young babies can feel safe and loved by seeing pictures of them and their family around the home, I thought what they do is brilliant, a fabric baby book filled with your favourite photos and text. A baby photo album that can be dribbled on, chewed, scrunched, crawled over and most importantly, easily cleaned, and they are all created here in Guildford, Surrey.
Sarah and Nadine’s story Introduced when they were pregnant with their first babies, born in the Summer of 2016, Sarah and Nadine became close friends. When Sarah’s daughter was born 9 weeks early, she had to spend a number of weeks in Neonatal intensive care and special care. She didn’t get to meet her little girl for 4 days and then had to leave her every night at the hospital when she went home.
Nadine decided to help and printed out some photos to leave in the baby’s incubator, so she would always see her parents’ faces when they weren’t there. The idea stemmed from there. Keeping you together when you’re apart.
Family photos don’t often get printed out for children, unless they’re in a (usually breakable) frame and Sarah and Nadine wanted something that babies and toddlers could easily access and touch.
My 1st Photos will help your baby to recognise faces of those around them or far away. The clear, bold writing will also help babies and toddlers to develop early word and picture associations. Whether it’s capturing their newborn images, to make them to see how they were even little when mum and dad brought they home, so see all that love in images, first birthday party, a family holiday or simply that loveable cheeky grin, you and your baby can treasure these wonderful memories for years to come.
Whether it’s for your own little bundle, or a gift for new parents, this adorable photo album will ensure those special moments are captured and the memories kept safe. From the day of birth and into adulthood, my 1st Photos provides a keepsake for every journey in life.
Well done ladies!
