It has been almost 1 year now since I started #LittlePacksOfLove.
Along the way a few companies have left us , and a few more great ones have joined in, but the same few of us continue to meet up every 2 months to put these beautiful little packs together. I now make these packs up with the lovely Sophie from Puddle Ducks Dorset, I am really excited to start working together.
Little packs of love is a Dorset not for profit project that sets out to give local mums to be and new mums with babies up to 12 months old lots of useful offers and samples from other baby related businesses. It is so much more than just a pack of leaflets, each local company who contributes to these includes an exclusive offer, and we have goodies and samples in each pack too. The packs then get handed out to our clients and also they get handed out at local baby events that we attend.
As you can imagine things always change in a year. For us change has been for the better! I decided that I would like to get larger companies involved, and to my amazement the support we have received from such huge companies has been outstanding. Currently JoJoMaman Bebe are supplying us with bags, which I am sure you can all agree look beautiful. And lots of other amazing brands such as Pregnacare, Bio Oil, Water Wipes, Jackson Reece, Pukka Tea, Dorset Tea, and Bepanthen have sent me goodies to include in our packs!
So we ask again, what does the future hold for little packs of love? Well who knows! They are still going to be kept small and local and handed out to our clients but want to create a community so we are currently thinking about a group where we are bring together the new parents in Poole and provide them with useful information and promotions for our services.
Meanwhile if you would like a pack and have not yet had one, please do get in touch with me.
It has been just over 4 years now since I set up my newborn and family photography business in Poole,Dorset.
Over these few years the way that I present and package my work has changed significantly.
The biggest change has been of me previously providing a CD of digital images to now providing a USB. Over just a couple of years technology has changed so much, that now not everyone has a disc drive on their computer. In fact not everyone has a computer, but a USB can be used on most well know tablets or smart televisions, so I decided this was the best option to go forward with.
You could say I have somewhat gone "backwards" with presentation by providing prints with my standard and top packages. In a digital age, I think we are all starting to realise how important it is to print our photographs off rather than having them stay as just digital files forever. Whilst I realise that most clients do print off their photographs and put them up on their walls, there were always a few people that would just keep the digital files and never get round to doing anything with them. Bearing this in mind, at the beginning of 2016 I started to provide a print of each digital image with my standard and top packages. I do still continue to offer a basic package of a few digital images sent via email as a starting point, but almost everyone that books this package will go on to purchase a book or wall art from me aswell. There are of course exceptions to each situation, but I want to give these options to help keep my photography affordable to most that desire it.
My current packaging, which has evolved over the last 4 years, reflects my brand and natural style. Where possible I use natural and recycled materials, which compliment the natural beautiful photographs that are contained within them. I am always researching new ideas to add to my packaging and it seems to be constantly changing, but only slightly, and always in keeping with my style.
