Bubs, Bows & Beanies

A Photography Project raising funds for Sands

[miscarriage, stillbirth and newborn death support]

Registrations close 31st July 2019

Bubs, Bows & Beanies is something we’ve had in the works for a while and now we have our new studio, we can make it happen and raise some cash for a really good cause, Sands, at the same time.

If you follow us on the socials you’ll know we had our own little human last year and are completely in love with our little Charli Girl. But we know that some people’s journey into parenthood isn’t as smooth as ours was. It’s hard to comprehend that one in four confirmed pregnancies doesn’t go to plan, but when we stopped and thought about it we realised we know way too many beautiful people who have suffered the loss of their baby while pregnant. Our hearts break every time we hear one of those stories and we’ve hugged many friends and clients in their sad times. So to us, supporting Sands.org.au makes sense, and we’d love for your children to be a part of helping us raise at least $2,500 for them to continue with miscarriage, stillbirth and newborn death support.

Who can participate?

We’re looking to include at least 50 families with children from newborns up to three years of age. If you have two or even three [or more] children up to three years old, first of all, hats off to you, and second, we’d love to include them all! The project is all about capturing your gorgeous bubs with a bow, beanie, headband, flower crown, whatever you’re into. Shoots will initially focus on creating images for the project, but we can also include older siblings and this is the perfect opportunity to capture your whole family if you’d like.

How does it work?

First up, follow the link below to reserve your place – there’s a form to fill out and you’ll need to answer all of the questions before hitting submit. Then you need to donate at least $50 direct to Sands via our Every Day Hero Page [you’ll see that link once you’ve filled out the registration form].

We’ll then call you to arrange a time for you to pop by the studio for your Shoot Design Appointment [normally about a 20 minute chat] where we’ll learn a bit more about your little one and block a time out for your shoot.

Bubs, Bows + Beanies shoots will all take place in our new Traralgon, Victoria 3844 studio and are slightly shorter [45min] than our normal Portrait Photography Experience [1.5 hours] or Newborn Photography Experience [up to 3 hours], so you’ll need to make sure everyone is ready to go on arrival. Weekend appointments will be limited, so get in quick if weekdays don’t work for you!

After your shoot we will get you back into the studio again to view your images and have the opportunity to purchase prints if you wish. We’ve got a couple of special deals available only for participants as well as our normal large range of Wall Art and Albums.

Our favourite image from each shoot will be included in a Bubs, Bows & Beanies coffee table book which will be available for public purchase and delivered in time for Christmas 2019.

Currently pregnant and want your baby to be a part of Bubs, Bows + Beanies? As long as your due date is before the end of September 2019, you’re in!

Do I need to bring my own bow or beanie? We’d love for you to bring something special and personal for your child, but if you don’t have anything, we definitely have plenty of options for younger bubs and are happy to discuss options with you at your Shoot Design Appointment.

Did someone say Flower Crown? Yes, yes, yes, please do! The flower crowns used on Charli and Malika in the promo shots are from Valentina Flowers and we highly recommend you speak to them if that’s the look you love.

Call us on 0351743329 if there’s anything else you’d like to know before registering.
