Simply Stunning


How utterly stunning is this photo. It was taken by Addie of her daughter, this is the email she sent us.

"Hi, my name is Addie... Im a photographer in the US... anyway... shortly after I had my daughter, a friend in England sent me a Belle & Boo card, and it was right then that I fell in love with Belle & Boo...And I knew I wanted to recreate that card with my daughter... its been hanging on her wall framed ever since... well, she recently turned 4 and I decided it was time... and I thought the end result turned out so cute, so I thought I would pass them along to you to see!"

This is the card she is talking about.


& another lovely photo from the shoot. See more of Addie's photographs here
Thank you so much Addie I am really touched x


Yet again Top Drawer came and went, it is such a lot of work for just 3 days, luckily Kate put up the show, so I am not quite as exhausted as I usually am. It was such fun, we made lots of lovely new friends, lots of business ideas and contacts and most importantly lots of sales. The stand was very similar to the show in September, yet this time we had a main Belle & Boo wall and then a separate girls and boys wall, which I think worked well. These are a few work in progress shots.

  7. Your stand is so amazing! I wish I could see it in person! And the photos by Addie are so cute... just the same feeling as the print. You could use her daughter as a model for your illustration.
