We are very pleased to be featured in the Summer 2021 newsletter for Godalming and Cranleigh District NCT.
My 1st Photos was launched in 2018 inspired by the birth of my son.
As he grew up, I noticed his fascination with photographs and I would tell him stories about the family and friends in them. He was constantly thumbing through family albums and as much as I wanted to encourage his interest, I could see that photos and albums were being damaged and some destroyed.
At this point it came to me that surely in this day and age, someone must be producing printed, personalised photo albums on fabric. That way I wouldn’t have to worry about the destruction of precious photos and a fabric book could also be washable! I searched online and to my amazement I could not find anyone producing such a product.
So, I decided to look into it myself. Research went into sourcing baby friendly, machine washable fabrics and non toxic ink, our first sewing machine was bought and books were designed and produced from scratch. The website was launched, together with social media and My 1st Photos was up and running.
Running a business with a small family can be very challenging but I have such a great support network around me which is really important if you are thinking of launching a business. Covid has been tough on so many small businesses but we are back open and absolutely love making albums for babies and toddlers.
For further details on our gorgeous albums which are perfect for baby showers, birthdays, special milestones and don’t forget Father’s Day is coming up! Please have a look at our website www.my1stphotos.co.uk
