Things to do in Shropshire 2020

I spend hours looking for new things to do in Shropshire. Before my little girl started school in September, we used to have girly Monday's and I started the list so that we would always have something new to do. The list grew and lots of people helped contribute more...

New Parents- Why You Need to Get in the Photo!

New Parents- Why You Need to Get in the Photo!

As we entered lockdown and I had to explain to my children why we wouldn’t be able to see family and friends for a little while, it got me thinking about the importance of family, the importance of capturing the precious moments and the importance of photography to...

Reopening the studio and taking extra precautions

Reopening the studio and taking extra precautions

So as lockdown eases, following government guidance, I have been busy preparing the studio for sessions again! I can’t wait to welcome back babies and families, but for now, sessions will be slightly different. My home studio has been thoroughly cleaned, rearranged to...

Baby Photos from Home

Baby Photos from Home

Cancelling newborn photoshoots due to the Covid-19 restrictions was heartbreaking- for both myself but more importantly for my clients! The newborn phase is so short and so beautiful- photographing it and capturing memories is such a privilege and just the most...

Where to find Maternity Wear- Shrewsbury

Where to find Maternity Wear- Shrewsbury

It seems the days of being able to pop into town for maternity wear are vanishing! I know when I was pregnant with Emily, I really struggled to find much. Even department stores which I thought would be guaranteed to have maternity wear had either nothing at all or an...

Coping with baby reflux- our experience

Coping with baby reflux- our experience

Emily was our first. She's now very almost 5 and it seems the reflux days are almost behind us. But, when she was tiny, things were all a bit crazy and reflux played a big part of our day to day lives. Reflux is so common, especially in babies born prematurely, and is...

Baby Groups Shrewsbury

Baby Groups Shrewsbury

I remember looking for baby groups when I had Emily and whilst we were home a lot of the time, I didn’t feel like I had a huge amount of time to search and search for groups. I spent ages looking for a directory of some sort where all the groups were listed but I...

It Takes a Village…

If you hadn’t already noticed, blogging doesn’t come too easily to me. I’m no good at talking about myself or my work and not great at talking about others either. But apparently, all my blogging inspiration comes to me when I shouldn’t be doing any work at all!...

What to Buy for Baby -My Favourite Baby Buys. By Shrewsbury Photographer, Victoria J Photography

What to Buy for Baby -My Favourite Baby Buys. By Shrewsbury Photographer, Victoria J Photography

I remember, when I was pregnant with Emily, being so excited to start buying things for the nursery, little outfits and other ‘necessities’. And then when we were finally ready to start looking for things, I felt completely overwhelmed. Until I started looking I had no idea of the absolutely huge amount of baby products that are on the market. And, of course, like most expectant mummies, I had no idea what I needed or didn’t need.
So with that in mind I wanted to share with you some of my absolute favourite buys that we had for our two little monkeys (aside from the usual stuff). Some of which we purchased before they arrived, but most of which we got whilst they were here. Surprisingly, a lot of the stuff I thought we needed before we had a baby didn’t make it onto the list!

My Breastfeeding Journey

My Breastfeeding Journey

There are plenty of things I wish I had known about having a baby, before I actually had one (like how the little flaps at the top of vests are to widen the neck hole so that it can slide over the body whenever poonamis strike!). But without a shadow of a doubt the...
