LJ Crochet - Stand 2

Hi I’m Lisa and I own and run LJ Crochet which is a family business consisting of my mum, my sister and me, which specializes in hand knitted and crochet luxury items, for you, your family and your home. 

LJ Crochet was created approximately 5 years ago when I decided to learn to crochet again. My mum taught me as a child but I never really grasped it. My mum has always knitted and crocheted my whole life, so yarn and hand crafted items have always featured in my life. So I picked up a crochet hook and re-taught myself - I loved it and there was no stopping me. Now I am teaching my mum new techniques and stitches, it's amazing and shows you are never too old to learn something new!

We became involved in making photography props, when I crocheted a strawberry hat and booties set and a couple of photographers showed an interest and purchased the sets. We got talking and I realised that there was a market for newborn photography props – the rest is history as they say. 

Our range of newborn props is quite vast due to the fact that I love all things fibre related, so we all knit and crochet and I love to spin hand spun yarn in which to create some truly One of a Kind (OOAK) items. I also love to felt, whether that is wet felting or needle felting it is all so much fun.

We just love to share the woolly love!

Mii-Estilo - Stand 6

"My name is Ingrid"

I’m married with the sweetest man in the whole world and we have the greatest kids in the planet, a boy and a girl, plus 2 more angels in Heaven. When I was a little girl my mom taught me to sew - and I must say that all of this is really her fault (in a good way, of course).

In 2012, I was trying to make a crochet hat for my daughter, using the knowledge that my mom passed to me when I was younger. The hat turned to be a really great hat, and other people started to ask for me to make more of them. One of those hats appeared in a picture from Lilly May, a newborn photographer, that introduced me to the photography world. In November of 2013 some photographers were interested in maternity gowns (that until the moment were made only in USA) and I decided to give it a try. Me and my mom did 3 dresses and we made a shooting with them - and then my business really started. It started first in The Netherlands, but the feedback was so great that suddenly we were sending dresses to everywhere. At this moment Mii-Estilo send dresses to lots of places and has the cooperation with the best photographers in the world. 

For me, Mii-Estilo is a synonymous for love. Love for the creation, love for the dresses, love for my job and love for the joy that my items brings to other people. I really do love what I do, and I hope to keep doing it for a very long time

Big Crocodile - Stand 7-9

Big Croc Photo Props specialises in unique luxury handmade photography props. My own snuggle soft yarn is used to make the softest range of hats, blankets, nappy covers ........ even little trousers. These are complimented by the dreamy cloud range of posing bowls, cocoons and hammocks. I also carefully source newborn photography staples such as stretch wraps and long hair faux furs and often go out trawling for 'unique finds' - I have unearthed some gorgeous wooden bowls, enamel baths, buckets and a whole range of other wonderful items - most often they are one offs. I am excited to be back at the Newborn Photography Show for the fourth year running it is always a great event which looks to be bigger and better again this year.

Hushabye Baby Props - Stand 18

Hey, I'm Lisa from Hushabye Baby Props. 

Originally a newborn photographer I started making props & outfits for my own studio, but I had so much fun designing & making them that I became addicted to making such gorgeous little outfits. Very soon I had far too many and so I decided to open my Etsy store; since then I've supplied many beautiful props all over the world.

Sewing and prop making has since become my happy place and so now I fully devote my time to creating beautiful, often one of a kind, baby photography outfits so you can make exquisite photographs for your clients.

Newborn Wraps by Sally - Stand 23

I started my photography journey in 2010 and I was so frustrated that there was a complete lack of products here in the UK for newborn photographers. So I decided to start my own store, initially the only products I sold were stretch knit wraps. I have since increased my range to include, backdrops, jersey wraps, headbands, posing bunnies, knitted items, and posing bowls.

Everything in the store unless otherwise stated is in stock and ready to ship.

As a newborn photographer I pride myself on sourcing only good quality products that I would be happy to use in my photography business.
