I had a lovely, but tiring day photographing some lovely babies for the 2012 Face of Merino Kids competition. It was great fun and the Clapham Merino showroom has some beautiful light, so I was really pleased with the results. The competition is in partnership with a fab baby magazine, Baby London. I wanted to post some of my faves as it also gives a good indication of the shooting space – which I will now be using once a month! The purpose of Mini Shoots is to accommodate anyone who doesn’t want a full session and perhaps just needs some updated images, or doesn’t fancy coming to see me in Hampshire. Full details of the Mini shoots are on the Merino Showroom website, including pricing as well as the slots and timings available. Please click HERE to check out the details and book your slot – they are allocated on a first come first served basis!
The £125 shoot fee is exclusive to Mini shoots at the Clapham showroom. Booking a Mini Shoot comes with a 15% discount exclusive gift voucher towards your order, and print prices start from £325 ( there will be a Special merino print pack available, please contact me for details). Approximately 20 proofs will be presented to you 10 days after your shoot. The shoot will last 30-45 minutes. Please note that due to logistics and limited space the shoots are available for babies aged between 12 weeks and 1 year, as they are not normally walking. Newborns are not included in this promotion as they are much longer sessions that can only be shot in certain conditions, so if you are looking for a newborn shoot or a full session please do get in touch and I can book you in at the studio (normal prices will apply).
Merino Kids™ is an internationally award winning textile company from New Zealand that specialises in using 100% natural fibres, for the design of newborn, baby, infant and toddler sleepwear. The company was founded by Amie Nilsson, during 2003 and since that time has grown significantly to now become one of the global leaders and commentators of using natural fibres for young children. So whilst I’m doing the shoot you can check out the lovely clothing! Without further ado, here are some of my faves from the competition day, all little ones are wearing Merino kids clothing. For all of you with newborns – check out the beautiful swaddles on the Merino website , they are lovely!
