Eco-Friendly Parenting: Sustainable Choices for Your Pregnancy and Baby's First Year

Welcome to the world of Eco-Friendly Parenting!

Having a child is a wonderful experience for many new parents which introduces a new way of life for many families.

As we become more aware of how our lives are impacting the environment it is a good idea to start your parenting journey off with sustainable choices.

There are many excellent ways you can help protect the environment while caring for your baby through eco-conscious choices. Below we will explore some of the ways you can navigate parenting and raising a baby by making sustainable swaps during your pregnancy and your baby’s first year.

Second-Hand Maternity Clothes

Maternity clothes can be expensive and you only wear them for a short time while you are pregnant. By choosing to buy second-hand maternity wear you will save money and prevent unwanted clothing from being wasted. Second-hand sites such as eBay or Vinted are great places to look for maternity clothing online. There are also many sites dedicated to good quality second-hand maternity wear.

Reusable Nappies

You can avoid sending disposable nappies to landfills by choosing reusable nappies. Reusable nappies are very easy to use and there are many options you can choose from. You can buy bundles of second-hand nappies, or invest in a selection of new nappies from brands such as TotsBots, Bambino Mio, or Little Lamb. The initial cost of reusable nappies may seem high however most reusable nappies can grow with your baby until they are ready to be potty trained.

Eco-Friendly Parenting: Recycle Baby Bottles

If you bottle-feed your baby you may wonder what you should do with all the bottles once they are finished with them. Many baby bottles are recyclable or reusable and can be passed on to other families. As baby bottles are cleaned and sterilised they can be used again and again so there is no need to throw them out. If you have chosen to use glass baby bottles you will be able to either pass them on or recycle them with your local recycling centre. You can also check local baby banks to see if they are happy to take your preloved baby bottles to pass on to another family in need.

Homemade baby food

When it comes to weaning your baby around 6 months it can seem like an expensive task. Baby foods in supermarkets are sold in small jars and there are lots of new baby items to buy such as high chairs, bibs, and feeding trays.

By making your own food at home you can save money and take a big step in the direction of Eco-Friendly Parenting.

You can use up any leftover fruits or vegetables in your fridge. Making your own food will eliminate food packaging waste from shop-bought baby food and make use of any excess food you have at home.

Eco-Friendly Parenting: Baby Clothes

As we all know babies grow fast and outgrow their cute baby outfits in no time. So you may end up with a surplus of baby clothes that are too small for your baby very quickly. Here are some great ideas for those small baby clothes:

Keep special clothing items in a keepsake box. You may enjoy looking back at their first newborn outfit or you can pass on a special outfit your child wore to your grandchildren one day.

Donate any good quality baby clothes to your local charity shop, or baby bank. As long as they are in good condition with minimal stains you can donate them. This includes baby socks, bibs, and hats.

For any very stained items of clothing don’t throw them away. There are lots of places that can recycle the fabric. Look for fabric banks where you can donate old clothes to be recycled.

Natural Fibers and Materials

Make informed choices when buying items for your baby and their nursery. Natural clothing fibres such as linen and cotton are better for the environment as they do not contribute to microplastic waste like polyester does. Natural fibres are more biodegradable and are kinder to your baby’s sensitive skin. When choosing furniture for your baby’s nursery, pick items made from sustainable materials, such as wood, that are natural and chemical-free.

Switch to Eco-Cleaning Products

With the arrival of your baby, you will likely be conscious of keeping them safe and adapting your home to be more baby-friendly. A great way to do this is by swapping your cleaning products for greener, more eco-friendly options. Eco-cleaning products will eliminate toxic chemicals being used around your home and will be safer for your baby.

You can make many excellent cleaning products using household items. White vinegar is an excellent antibacterial agent and can be diluted with water to wipe down surfaces.

Lemon is another great cleaner and can cut through grease on your oven or saucepans. Natural sunlight also kills bacteria, so make the most of a sunny day and leave items in the sun to help remove stubborn stains and odours.

Eco-Friendly Parenting: Grow Your Own Food

By growing your own food such as fruits and vegetables you will be able to save money on your groceries and help the planet. Growing your own food is better for the environment because it eliminates food packaging waste, reduces air and water pollution, and growing plants contributes to cleaner air.

If you have a garden or balcony you can grow tomatoes, cucumbers, and even pumpkins. If you don’t have outside space you can apply for an allotment space or even grow herbs and small fruiting plants, such as peppers on your window sill.

Final Thoughts

There are many things you can do to make the way you live more sustainable and eco-friendly in time for your baby’s arrival. Many of the above suggestions are inexpensive and have a long usage life. Disposable nappies may take a little extra time and effort to clean, yet will greatly help to protect the environment. Buying second-hand clothing for both you and your baby will also help save you money and prevent clothes from being sent to a landfill.

By making small changes to your life you will be able to live in a more sustainable and eco-friendly way whilst looking after your baby.

Creating a Comfortable Home Environment for a Newborn in Winter

Winter can be a challenging time for parents of newborns. With plummeting temperatures and unpredictable weather, it’s important to create a comfortable home environment that will keep your little one safe, healthy and happy. As a newborn photographer based in Rugby, I’ve had the pleasure of capturing the precious moments of many families with newborns, and I understand the importance of creating a warm and nurturing space for your baby.

Whether you’re an expecting mum or a new mum, you want the best for your child. But with so much information out there, it can be overwhelming to know where to start.

That’s why I’ve put together this guide on creating a comfortable home environment for your newborn in winter.

From temperature control to safe sleeping, I’ll provide you with practical tips and advice to help you navigate this exciting but challenging time.

newborn photo shoots

Temperature Control:

One of the most important factors in creating a comfortable home environment for your newborn is temperature control. Babies are unable to regulate their body temperature as effectively as adults, so it’s important to ensure that your home is kept at a consistent and comfortable temperature.

As a general rule, the ideal temperature range for newborns is between 68°F and 72°F (20°C and 22°C). However, it’s important to note that every baby is different, and you should monitor your child’s behaviour to determine if they are comfortable. Signs that your baby may be too hot or too cold include sweating, flushed cheeks, or shivering.

Here are some tips for regulating the temperature in your home:

  • Use a reliable thermometer to monitor the temperature in your baby’s room. You can find a wide range of affordable and accurate digital thermometers online or at your local pharmacy.
  • Dress your baby in appropriate clothing. Layers are key, as they allow you to add or remove clothing as needed. Avoid dressing your baby in too many layers, as this can lead to overheating.
  • Use a baby sleep sack or swaddle to help regulate your baby’s body temperature. These products are designed to keep your baby warm and snug without the need for additional blankets.
  • Invest in a good-quality humidifier. Winter air can be dry, which can lead to irritated skin and nasal passages. A humidifier will add moisture to the air, making it easier for your baby to breathe and helping to prevent dry skin.

By following these tips, you can create a warm and comfortable environment for your newborn that will help them sleep better and thrive. Remember to monitor your baby’s behaviour and adjust your temperature control strategies as needed

Humidity Control:

Humidity is another important factor in creating a comfortable home environment for your newborn, especially during the dry winter months. Babies are more susceptible to respiratory infections and skin irritations in dry environments, so it’s important to maintain optimal humidity levels in your home.

The ideal humidity range for newborns is between 40% and 60%. You can purchase a hygrometer, a device that measures humidity levels, to monitor the humidity in your baby’s room.

Here are some tips for adding moisture to the air:

  • Use a humidifier. A humidifier adds moisture to the air, making it easier for your baby to breathe and helping to prevent dry skin. Be sure to clean your humidifier regularly to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold.
  • Take a warm bath with your baby. Bath time is a great opportunity to add moisture to the air and soothe your baby. Just be sure to dry your baby thoroughly after the bath to prevent skin irritation.
  • Use a saline nasal spray or drops. Winter air can dry out your baby’s nasal passages, making it harder for them to breathe. Saline nasal spray or drops can help moisturize the nasal passages and make breathing easier.
  • Avoid over-drying your home. Central heating and air conditioning can dry out the air in your home, leading to dry skin and respiratory problems. Consider using a humidifier or opening windows to increase air circulation and reduce dryness.

By following these tips, you can help maintain a comfortable and healthy environment for your newborn in the dry winter months. Remember to monitor the humidity levels in your home and adjust your strategies as needed.

Clothing and Bedding:

Proper clothing and bedding are essential for creating a comfortable home environment for your newborn in winter. However, it’s important to strike the right balance between keeping your baby warm and preventing overheating, which can increase the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Here are some tips for selecting clothing and bedding for your newborn in winter:

  • Dress your baby in layers. Layers allow you to add or remove clothing as needed, depending on the temperature. Start with a onesie or undershirt, add a sweater or jacket, and top it off with a warm hat and mittens.
  • Choose clothing made from breathable fabrics. Natural fabrics like cotton and bamboo are ideal, as they allow your baby’s skin to breathe and prevent overheating.
  • Avoid using too many blankets. Instead, opt for a warm sleep sack or swaddle that will keep your baby snug and secure without the need for additional blankets.
  • Use a firm and flat mattress. A firm and flat mattress is safest for your baby. Avoid using pillows, cushions, or stuffed animals in the crib.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your baby is warm, comfortable, and safe in their clothing and bedding during the winter months. Remember to monitor your baby’s behaviour and adjust their clothing and bedding as needed.

UK-based resources about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) that you may find helpful:

  1. The Lullaby Trust: The Lullaby Trust is a UK-based charity that provides support and advice to families affected by SIDS, as well as funding research into the causes and prevention of SIDS. They offer a range of resources and information on safe sleeping practices for babies, including a Safer Sleep for Babies guide:
  2. NHS: The National Health Service (NHS) provides guidance on reducing the risk of SIDS, including advice on safe sleeping positions, temperature control, and breastfeeding:
  3. Public Health England: Public Health England provides information on reducing the risk of SIDS, as well as resources for healthcare professionals:

It’s important to always consult with a healthcare professional for advice specific to your baby’s needs and circumstances.


Indoor Air Quality:

Maintaining good indoor air quality is essential for creating a comfortable home environment for your newborn in winter. Poor indoor air quality can lead to respiratory problems, allergies, and skin irritations, so it’s important to take steps to improve the air quality in your home.

Here are some tips for improving indoor air quality:

  • Keep your home clean. Regular cleaning can help reduce the amount of dust, pollen, and other allergens in your home. Vacuum carpets and rugs regularly, dust surfaces with a damp cloth, and use a HEPA air purifier to filter out pollutants.
  • Avoid smoking inside. Secondhand smoke can be harmful to your baby’s health, so it’s important to avoid smoking inside your home. If you or someone in your household smokes, try to quit or smoke outside.
  • Use natural cleaning products. Harsh cleaning chemicals can release harmful fumes into the air. Consider using natural cleaning products, such as vinegar and baking soda, to clean your home.
  • Ventilate your home. Proper ventilation can help reduce indoor air pollutants. Open windows and doors, use exhaust fans in the bathroom and kitchen, and consider installing a heat recovery ventilation system.
  • Test for radon. Radon is a naturally occurring gas that can be harmful to your health. You can purchase a radon testing kit online or at your local hardware store to test for radon levels in your home.

Remember to monitor your baby’s behaviour and consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns about their health or wellbeing.

Personalising The Memories in Newborn Photography


Personal items is a different way to express the love for your newborn with items from the past or present. This is a one of a kind experience for your shoot that captures your personality throughout the session time. The items can be anything from grandparents hats, sentimental items, old cameras, motorbike helmets, sports memorabilia and even gaming controllers. These items can add meaning to your photos to tell a story of your babies life at the beginning.

A viewing of images that brought us to tears…

Seeing your images for the first time can be emotional. There is a magic that happens capturing a newborn when they are so little. For me, watching people view their images is so rewarding when you see the happiness that photos can create.

At a viewing this week I had the pleasure of showing Savanna, Kane and their family their photos of their new arrival. This photoshoot was based around lots of personal items that they brought in for the session. So seeing their reaction is something that I will never forget.

These memories will be treasured and will be looked back upon in years to come. I always ask if parents want to bring any personal items with them and if they do I will create an image to show these items off with the baby.

The personal items that we used throughout this session was Xbox controllers, gaming headphones, a pseronal photo frame, angel wings and teddies for the new baby.

When the slideshow was viewed the parents had a few tears and seeing how much these images meant to them left us with tears as well. Happy tears I should add.

Photographing on colours you want

Choosing colours is an essential part of my set up, I also find out this information before hand. 

Parents may have a particular colour scheme in mind and may want to match certain colours that they have a special meaning to them. 

Some colours may want to match the baby’s bedroom, or lounge colours. Asking about colour preferences ensures that the parents are involved in the images they would like to be shown on their walls. 


Family photos, oh go on then…

Its not everyones cup of tea to have photos when you have a newborn, but if you feel brave to step in front of the camera this is an amazing time to get the family together. These guys decided to get a few family photos done at the end of their session. The best smile was waiting for the end, when we got a little smile from baby!

A few more photos to share

Sharing photos is not always allowed, however this family were amazing and have let me share their photos. A massive thank you. See you in August x

Behind the scenes of a newborn session with me

Behind the scenes of a newborn session with me

You may think that to have a newborn session so fast after giving birth is the last thing you would want to do. I understand that completely, as it was the last thing on my mind. 

To get out of the house within the first few weeks takes time, practice and sometimes pain and discomfort. I talk from experience as I remember us being a little apprehensive about taking our newly born bundle of joy out of the house, although we were also a little excited.

I can remember the time it took me to get out of the house after both my children. Both births were at the opposite ends of the scale, chalk and cheese. I was worried, unorganized and I didn’t really want to go to our planned newborn session. However, 10 years later I can honestly say that we are so, so pleased we did.

Lisa as a Mum...

When my little girl was born the first trip we took was to go on a newborn training day. I look back now and think I was either stupid or mad or possibly both. The course was one and a half hours drive away and then 5 hours learning the basics about the art of newborn photography with my new baby as the model. These moments we can’t get back and once the day was completed I was so pleased that had had made the effort. Did I feel like going that morning? No. Did I want to stay at home and rest? Yes. The only thing that exceeds our being glad that we did, is the fact that our children now look back on the images we had taken with absolute fascination, pleasure and a love that we had these images of them taken. That is what truly makes us glad we had these shoots.

So enough about my experience has a new mum and here’s to some guidance behind the scene of a newborn session. 

And… relax!

Cuppa Tea

Whether you are a tea or coffee person, trust me when I say that in a few weeks being able to sit down with a HOT cup of your favourite drink will sound like HEAVEN.

So when you get to the studio… 

Apart from feeding your baby, I can take care of ensuring your child is comfortable, warm and content so that they sleep well for the shoot. And… believe me I do not get offended if you feel sleepy, I simply want you to have your hot drink and take time to relax and recharge whilst we capture the images.

Now you are now probably wondering why we need the baby to be asleep during the session…

All about sleeping babies… and nappies

In an ideal world a baby will be fast asleep from the moment you arrive till you leave, however this never happens so please don’t think that it will. Having a sleeping baby makes a session go a little faster as baby can be moved a little easier when they are still and sleepy. 

Whether your baby is awake or asleep on arrival, I will ask you to undress him or her down to their nappy and then wrap them up in their blanket and just give them cuddles. If baby then falls asleep I start photos on my bean bag first. But if baby is awake please don’t panic, I have other ideas that helps them get to sleep.

Photographing babies with no nappies can look beautiful in photos but behind the scenes mess can and usually does happen. I always say, “it’s not a newborn shoot If I don’t get peed or pooed on at least once” 

The Session

Now that your baby is asleep (or very sleepy) and ready, the session begins!

Once your baby is calm and comfy, I will start posing them and snapping away. I always try to get a few different shots (from differing angles and distances) on a variety of setups with a different array of colours and backdrops.

If you are here, chances are that you have already scrolled through some newborn images and probably have some favourites… and you are wondering if we can take a similar photo with your little one.

The answer is… your baby decides and will let us know!

Every baby is different, and some poses simply do not suit some babies, and this is based on several factors such as your babies age, frame and indeed their personality.

Professional newborn photographers use what’s called a “baby led” workflow: in other words, we adapt our work to the baby at any single point in time.

We obviously start the session with a plan, which is based on what we know works with babies, but we must be ready to “read” the baby and change our plans in real time.

Have you ever seen a photo of a little cutie asleep in a basket… or bucket? 


Well, no matter what our plans may be, we will have to wait until the baby is completely relaxed before attempting a pose such as this. So if I realise the baby is asleep but their muscles are somehow tense… I might decide to wait a little longer before moving to this setup.

With a little help…

Throughout the session I may need a little bit of help from one of you to sit close to the baby if I cannot be close enough to be able to capture the shot. At no point would I ever leave your baby unattended, or without being supported in a safe place and in sight. Baby safety takes priority over any image captured. 


If this is your first baby, this maybe the first time you will be looking into a family photo shoot.

I know from experience that – at this point – your first thought might be “I don’t want to be in the photos! I don’t like the way I look in photos”.

This is natural and please do not stress about it: first, it is my job to ensure the session is a pleasant and relaxing experience for everyone.

Additionally, there are always ways to show that you were indeed there so that your child can see you with them as they grow.

This can simply (but effectively and artistically be) involving your hands and arms in an image, or a cuddle holding your baby in your arms.


Big brothers and sisters are of course invited to join in the session if you wish. They can come for the whole time or join halfway through the session. I can even photograph your baby on their own and then photograph their brother/sister on their own and merge the images together if this makes for a more rounded image of them together.

The main reason that I sometimes suggest this option, is that an older sibling can move fast. I would hate for them to move when holding a newborn baby. Again, baby safety always comes first, so in some instances, this is a perfect solution.  


The reveal! What happens after your Newborn Session

If I had to tell you what are the two sentences I hear more often in the studio, I would probably say “I can’t wait to see the photos!!!” and “It’s too hard to choose, we want them all!”

Since I know how hard it is to wait for your images, I always try to schedule your viewing and ordering appointment within 2 weeks from your shoot date.

Your viewing appointment is just as important as the session, because this is where your photos become “real”: we will take all the time you need to look over your gallery and personalised slideshow to enable you to decide which products and packages suit you best.

Whether you love the idea of a memory box, want prints for grandparents or simply some digital files, I will help you find the perfect products that your family will treasure forever.

Have questions about my newborn sessions? I would love to chat!

I have photographed over 200 babies so whatever doubts, apprehension or questions you might have… I am here to help!

Email or call 07903 733270, I can’t wait to learn more about you and your baby.


Ideas For A Cakesmash Birthday

Ideas For A Cakesmash Birthday

Ideas For A Cakesmash Birthday? Is your Baby about to turn one? Do you want to do a party? Have all the mess to clean up after? Or have you thought about doing a cakesmash for you little person?

Whats Included In Your Cake Smash?

The only thing you need to do is inform me what colours or ideas you have. I will arrange the whole set design and get the cake. Our cakes can be made gluten free or if you have other diet requests this can be sorted. Cakes included are Naked Cake (like the photos you see)  Believe if or not, not every child likes the sweeter taste of a cake – Yes this has been know. So I have a back up plan of fruit just in case, this can be added around the edge of the cake to help your little one eat something they know and like.

After the cakesmash, the bath is then brought out and clean up can begins. They can have a splash around and then get dry. At the very end when everything is cleaned away, there is time for a few portrait photos of them. If you wish as a family to have a few photos as well at this milestone you are more than welcome.

Click above to find out more information.

Get their siblings messy too...

Some little people like it when older siblings get in on the action. If you have other children and want them to join in bring them along.


If this is something you wish to have the session is £65.00 which includes an amazing cake. If baby doesn’t completely squash it into the floor you are welcome to take it home. (Cut around it and eat the middle – too good to waste) I need at least 10 days to arrange and sort your session out and of course book the cake lady.

Drop me a message today to arrange your cake. Lots of different backdrops available. See below of some ideas – but remember if you have your own style this can be arranged.



Want to see different ideas on cake, have a little look here at Queen of Tarts.

Will Baby Enjoy A Cake Smash?

Will Baby Enjoy A Cake Smash?

What’s not to enjoy?

Cake, destruction, and attention? Never mind baby, we want a Cake Smash! 

What is a Cake Smash session?

Cake Smashes are such a lovely way to celebrate your baby’s first birthday.

They are perfect for capturing your little one’s personality – whether they are cheeky and forward or shy and gentle – you really see who they are in their images.

As the name suggests, it is a photography session where your baby smashes up their birthday cake! Usually incorporating a portrait session before the messiness begins, or after the bathsplash.

They are fantastic for all involved, with an end result of beautiful, fun images to look back on fondly for years to come.

My baby is a little shy, will they still enjoy a Cake Smash?

Whether your baby is gregarious and outgoing or more reserved, we find they all generally enjoy a Cake Smash.

While it is fab to have a baby in the studio who plays to the camera and enthusiastically bashes away at the cake, it is also so cute to capture the little ones who are a bit more reticent too.

Nine times out of 10, even the little ones who were unsure at first, really enjoy themselves once they have warmed up a bit and realise how much fun it is having.

Especially if Mum, Dad or a bigger sibling, helps them smash their cake up too!

Your photographer will do their very best to put your baby at ease, offering encouragement and going at their pace. Taking breaks if needed and just going with the flow.

I'm worried my baby won't smash the cake up! 

Rest assured, it’s not a problem if your little one doesn’t show much interest in the cake bashing. Images taken of them looking solemnly at it are still beautiful! It is all about a portrait of your baby that shows their character. And if your baby is ‘too cool to smash’, that will be reflected beautifully in their images.


My baby is likely to totally destroy the cake and make a mess!

This is totally fine too! Messy babies are happy babies. It is a sensory experience and smashing, bashing and smearing the cake is welcomed. In fact, it is positively encouraged.

Getting ready for your Cake Smash: tips and hints 

If you have booked a Cake Smash session, it is a really good idea to let your little one loose with some cupcakes a few times beforehand.


Pop them in their highchair, with a wooden spoon and encourage them to dig in. Then they won’t be so taken aback when they are given a spoon and have a cake placed in front of them at their Cake Smash session.


It is also a great idea to bring some of their favourite treats or snacks. If they are not keen on the cake, they can be hidden in the icing, to encourage them to break the cake up!


And remember…….


There is no right or wrong way for a Cake Smash session to go! Whether your baby gets fully stuck in or looks at the cake like it is an alien and needs help from mum to bash it up – both make fun, beautiful images. And that is what we want to achieve.

How can we make your newborn images truly yours

How Can We Make Your Newborn Images Truly Yours?

How To Make Newborn Images Personal?

If you look through social media these days, there are so many photos of newborn babies looking adorable and cute.

However, some newborn photos can look very similar with the poses and if the same colours were used could you tell your baby apart from others?

So, my question is “How can we make your newborn images truly yours?”


I love asking parents to bring little keepsakes or items with a particular meaning, which is why whenever I get a new booking, I ask mum and dad if they have a hobby or interest.

Over the years I have worked with horse lovers, Rugby fans and much more! If you ever wondered if a Rugby ball can look great on camera… it can (but of course… not as cute as the baby)!

At times, however I get asked if parents can bring something more personal.


A recent session I did was for a newborn baby to have a photo taken with his great grandad’s hat.

This item was such a personal item, with an incredible emotional value not only to the parents but for their family.

On the day of the session I explained about putting baby into the hat and the hat being held by dad.

Now for me to do this shot and to keep baby safe I wouldn’t dream of actually putting the baby into the hat but photographing two different set ups and then merging them together.

I decided to record a little video to show you how, sometimes, a little magic is required to create photographs your family will love and treasure forever.

And this, of course, is the final image!
