Thank you to everyone who came along yesterday!

Thank you very much to everyone who came along to the NHM Meet Up yesterday.

It was a brilliant event!

I’ve had some lovely comments from people who came along, so I’m glad you all had a lovely time.

Thank you as always to the Playdays team who allowed me to use their facilities for free for the morning and a special thank you to Leah who helped us to set up first thing.

Thank you also to the lovely people who came along and represented their businesses:

Unfortunately I didn’t get to take as many pictures as I wanted (Sorry Lynsey and Sarah!) but thank you to those parents who agreed I could use these pictures on the blog.

It was such a successful event that I’m hoping to do another one in September, however it will be on a different day as I think I’ve exhausted the “Wednesday” people!

I will probably send out a poll soon asking people to let me know the best day for them to attend a Meet Up, so keep an eye out for that.

Don’t forget the next NHM event is the Summer picnic on the 12th of July. I hope to see you there!

Thank you again to everyone who came along yesterday and for your fabulous support!

I can’t say enough how much it means to me to know that I’ve got such an awesome NHM community supporting me :-D.

 

 

Event: NHM Meet Up (25th June 2014)

The next NHM Meet Up will be next Wednesday, (Wednesday 25th June) from 9.30am to 12pm at Playdays.

Playdays are very kindly offering a discount of £1.50 off entry price again, but you will need to register your attendance on Eventbrite HERE, to qualify for the discount.

I’m very excited to announce the following local businesses will be attending:

Sarah Dutton Photography

Sarah from Sarah Dutton Photography will be coming along and doing FREE photo shoots.

The slots will be 15 mins each and are available on a 1st come, 1st served booking basis, but you MUST book in advance. To book, you need to send me an email at NorthHantsMum@gmail.com saying that you would like a slot and I will reply to your email with your time.

After you have had your photo’s taken, you will be given a password which will allow you to take copies of any photo’s Sarah has taken of you which will be in a secure area on her website. You can then print them to you heart’s content.

How cool is that! A FREE photo session, so put on some slap and get your glad rags on! :-D.

My Precious Cargo

Colleen from My Precious Cargo will also be coming along and bringing some of their rear facing car seats for you to have a look at and try out.

If you are thinking about getting a rear facing car seat (they are the safest car seats going!) then Colleen will be delighted to answer any questions that you have.

Tinkerbell from Routine Riots

Rapunzel from Tangled came along to the last Meet Up and was incredibly popular (AMAZING voice!).

For this Meet Up, we have Tinkerbell coming along and she will be singing and meeting the children from 9.30am to 11am.

Kim from Routine Riots will also be doing facepainting for the little people.

Mahuru Baby Clinic

Lynsey from Mahuru Baby Clinic will also be coming along and demonstrating some massaging techniques for those with babies.

Lisa’s Lovely Books

The lovely Lisa will also be selling her Usborne books again, so bring some extra cash or cards along for these purchases. (Lisa has her machine to take cards, so you don’t need to bring cash for these books).

NHM Summer Picnic (12th July)

Princess Parties (Pirates welcome too…!)

I met Sarah through NHM over a year ago and I’ve had several family photo shoots with her since. She takes fantastic photo’s that are very reasonably priced. The parties sound like great fun, and I love the idea of having photo’s to document the whole experience. If you would like more details about Sarah’s studio over at Viables, please see the related posts below.

Princess Parties (Pirates welcome too…!)

Princess Parties are aimed for little ones aged 3 – 7.  At the party, your child can dress up and be made up to feel like a fairytale princess or swashbuckling pirate.  Don’t worry if you don’t have party dresses – we can supply those too!

Hair and Nails will be done at the party.  The thing that makes this party unique is that the whole event has a professional photographer there to record every moment.  The mobile studio will be set up and once the princess or pirate has been made up, professional portraits will be taken. All your party guests will have a mounted photograph to take away with them and, within a few days, the party princess or pirate will be given a memory book and 10 x 8 image of the day

Prices can vary depending on your specific requirements – please contact me for further information!

Modelling Party

The Modelling party is a fun two hours.

Come and be treated like a model with five guests – party invites are included in the price and sent to you with the party booking information. You will be greeted with drinks (mocktails for under 18’s) and party nibbles.

The Shoot is held in a party atmosphere and, if the weather is nice, we go out in the local grounds and do some on-location shots. Bring along your favourite outfits and change as much as you like to work those Top Model poses!

Once the party is over and we have some amazing photographs, I will edit the photos (which is normally a ten-day turn-around) and place them on a CD. There will be a minimum of 5 photos per person, and a letter giving you permission to print will be supplied with each CD – meaning that the images can then be printed anywhere at your convenience.

Parties are normally held at the studio – but if another location is required, this can be discussed.

Please contact Sarah Dutton Photography for more information on the above two parties!

You can also find Sarah’s Facebook page HERE.
