No I thought not, but those are the lengths that we go to make our books just that little bit special.
Using high-quality photography is something that we are very well known for at Priddy Books, and something that we take great pride in. With lots of new photographic books in the pipeline, we have just completed a week of photo shoots of babies and toddlers to feature in these new titles.
After weeks of preparation – which involved shopping for the right props, getting all the clothes in various sizes and booking the best baby models we could find. Not to mention supplying enough food and drink to feed a (very small) army – our creative team was ready for five days of photography! It was a great week and we met some wonderful little characters. Our 25 babies and toddlers were captured in all sorts of poses and actions: eating, banging drums, reading books, kicking balls, playing with toys and generally having lots of fun. We had lots of toys and games for them to play with so they were very happy… ok the TV in the corner of the studio helped too!
You’ll be able to see the photos in our brand new title Baby Basics My First Words, out in December…
…but until then here’s a quick look behind the scenes to give you an insight into what goes on.
