We are open and are business as usual with ppe and extra measures put in place
Covid 19 Update March 16th
To put it lightly… what a s#$! storm!
We appreciate that is a difficult time for everyone and your plans for your newborn have been altered. Your birthing plan will most likely change, you can’t see your extended family and you will have to adjust your lifestyle to bring this baby into the world. You’ve maybe had to cancel group sessions that you’ve joined, photoshoots rescheduled, christenings, weddings, everything is being put on hold whilst we sit and wait for this to pass; and it will pass.
To the mums that have given birth during this time, Congratulations – you and your family have just made history. You have just shown your baby how courageous you are and what a hero you are to them.
To the parents who are at home with the children trying to figure out how to home school, do Joe Wicks, trying to outwit your kids on TikTok whilst trying to hold off on pouring that wine until at least 2pm! Its hard but, you’ve got this and if you don’t – you know what, make memories. Kids will look back and remember when we made cakes, coloured, played footy with mam/dad. These happy times is what they will remember. One thing we’ve learnt as parents is how resilient and adaptable our children are.
To all the key workers out there… ‘Thank you’ just doesn’t seem enough. You are the front line. You are keeping this country running and putting your life at risk. You are at the frontline of a war you never signed up to and yet, have all took on this responsibility with immense courage and bravery. We salute you.
To the Rainbow children, the ones that are staying at home and making memories. The ones that are making us smile by their resilience and character. Thank you for all your rainbow pictures to brighten our day. Thank you for being you in the face of adversity. You are strong. You are brave. You are going to tell the stories to generations to come.
What we can do for new mums and dads?
We know that you wanted those teeny/tiny pictures of baby however, we can’t get to you and you can’t get to us. So together, let’s make a memory. All we ask that you take a picture with your phone and camera and send it to us and we will edit it free of charge. We will get pictures of your baby in the studio at a later stage and they will be lovely, just baby will be a bit bigger.
A rainbow baby typically has a different meaning however, rainbows are now the children’s symbol of this pandemic. By drawing us the lovely pictures of rainbows they are telling us that after every dark storm there’s a beautiful rainbow that follows, showing us there will be light and beauty at the end of this. The rainbow children are our future, they are the storytellers, they are the hope and I for one, will look at rainbows in a very different way after all of this.

What can we do for the NHS frontline?
When this is over (and it will be over at some point thanks to you and everyone staying at home) we are going to arrange 1 weekend where we can take a picture of your family completely free of charge (and send you the digital copy). Some of you have left your family during this time so you can keep them safe and we can only imagine how hard this is for you. Family is so important. This is for any NHS staff that have worked this pandemic, we cannot say thank you enough. There will be details to follow on this once we are out of lockdown.
What are we doing for existing clients who have booked and paid for their photoshoot prior to lockdown?
We thank you for postponing your session. This really does help small businesses by keeping your money in and as a thank you we would like to gift you a duplicate set of prints to gift to your loved ones.
Stay safe and sane
All our love,
