Photography of Your Birth Experience Made Into a Beautiful Video

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

On Facebook, which I am addicted too, I recently was emailed a link to a “birth video”.  An old friend from college forwarded this and put it on her Facebook page and I was blown away and brought to tears as well.  Basically, my friend, Melissa, had a photography session in her home when she was pregnant, along with her husband.  Then the photographer actually came to the hospital and documented the whole birth process with still shots.  Then she came to her home again after the baby came home and shot the baby and the whole family with some beautiful photography.  I wish I had known about this service, and I feel that all my customers would love it.  The photography studio is called Penny Noell (also her name I believe) and you can find her at www.pennynoell.com or her blog at http://pennynoell.blogspot.com.  I am not being paid for this endorsement, and I have never used her myself, but after seeing this video, I so wish I had known about her and this wonderful service.  She really captures the moment and the emotion of the family and friends surrounding Melissa, as well as Melissa herself.  Watch the video and see for yourself.  Just beautiful.

This is what the mom and my friend, Melissa says about her experience.
“Yes. She did a home session for pregnancy shots and newborn shots AND stayed at the hospital with me for the whole thing. I called when I was in labor and she met me in Wilson. I have over 600 pics from that day. We took the best ones and made the video. It is my most prized possession. I just got the pics for Lanie and am working on the same! Penny is INCREDIBLE and so easy to work with. I never felt like I had to “pose” and never felt as if she intruded. I had a hard labor with Thomas, so if she hadn’t had been there, I would not have been able to “experience” the end of my labor, because I kept my eyes closed and was in terrible pain.”

Enjoy the video, but make sure you have a box of tissues.  I cried (tears of joy)!  You will too. Have a great day everyone!

Big Britax Sale - Ends Sunday, Nov. 23, 2008

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that we are in the middle of a huge Britax sale at SmartMomma this week.  This sale will go through Sunday, Nov. 23rd, so come and see us.  If we don’t have the seat you want in stock, we can order for you.
Britax car seats are made in the USA, specifically Charlotte, NC, just down the road from us.  They do everything in Charlotte, from R&D to manufacturing to crash testing.  Britax Car Seats offer easy, tight installation, True Side Impact Protection, fashionable patterns, with a patented latch system that makes it easy to install and safe for your child.  This year, Britax has come out with a couple of new models.

The Britax Frontier Booster Seat starts at 2 years and 25 lbs and goes up to 80 lbs with a 5 point harness or 100 lbs with a seat belt.  It also has latch system.  You don’t have to re-strap, and the head piece adjusts in height as your child grows.  This seat will last from 2 years old all the way through the remainder of the child’s car seat/booster years.

The Boulevard Click & Safe seat is basically the Boulevard seat, with an added feature of an audible click sound when the seat belt is adjusted tight enough on your child.  This seat goes up to 65 lbs and does not have to be re-strapped as the child grows.  You just turn the knob on the side to adjust the seat height, so you don’t have to uninstall when adjusting the height.  The head piece has the True Side Impact protection.  All Britax seats have side impact protection.  The True Side Impact Protection is basically an additional headpiece on the seat lined with energy absorbing foam.
