In today’s blog, I’m sharing my favourite small businesses with you all.
First on my list has got to be Jamie Lemon Designs. Jamie lives in the same village I do. I have been in awe of this lovely ladies sawing work since she opened her shop last year. Jamie mainly specialises in hand made children’s clothing. As I photograph mainly babies and children, I am sure to invest in some of her lovely creations soon for use during my photography sessions. Jamie also makes reusable eco-friendly cotton pads and more recently peg bags. Her reviews are glowing. She has her own Etsy shop here https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JamieLemonDesigns
Sarah at little knitwitz is also local to me. She specialises in newborn photography props which she hand makes with her own fair hands. Sarah lives just a couple of miles from me. As she makes newborn props naturally I love her designs and have a few of her items now. What I love about them is that they never go out of fashion. I still use the props I bought a few years ago and regularly use them during my newborn photography sessions. Sarah has her own website here https://littleknitwitz.co.uk/
Next up is Hayley who is a nutritional therapist and naturopath. Hayley can help you to make changes to your lifestyle and diet which could have a significant effect on your overall health and wellbeing. Hayley is based in Stoke Sub Hamdon and can offer a range of services based on your health and wellbeing needs. Hayley can make recommendations and help you to lose weight so if you’ve been putting off that family portrait for a while now because you feel you would like to lose some weight Hayley can definitely help. Please visit her website to find out more. Hayley also offers a cookery school during the school holidays called Little Strawberries Cookery School for Children and more information can be found on Hayleys website here https://hayleyfrancesnutrition.com
Natalie lives locally to me and needle-felts beautiful animals using mainly locally sourced wool. Natalie loves to needle-felt British Wildlife pieces, which is down to her love of working with wildlife in her veterinary nurse position at a local Wildlife centre where she works closely with the animals. As a newborn photographer I am sure to call on Natalie soon as I think her work would make lovely photography props which I can use during my sessions. Natalie takes on just two commissions per month and has a waiting list system so if you love her work and want to order, getting in touch with her ASAP is a must. Natalie has a Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/feltedwithlovebyNatalie
