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 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, 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.
It is a small but steadily growing business and I have a fantastic team who work alongside me out of our studio In Guildford, Surrey.
We are all mummies and love our little cottage industry that we have built from the ground up with love.
Lots of love
