I've been volunteering with the local Aberdeen branch of the NCT (National Childbirth Trust) since my first baby Toby was born (a whole 4 years now!). It's been an amazing way to make new friends, and help make a difference to parents in the area - whether that be helping at the sling library or organising fundraising events. We've been running successful photo fundraisers for a couple of years, but we decided to chance the weather last October and offer 2 days of outdoor mini sessions. Not only did it help to raise vital funds for charity, it meant Christmas presents for Mums and Grans were sorted in one fell swoop! If you haven't heard of the NCT or what it provides for parents in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, you can pop over to their Facebook page
I had an amazing time meeting over 20 families across the 2 days, with lots of happy, smiley little ones all ready to rock their sessions. Here's just a small selection of images - it was almost impossible to choose a couple of favourites!
Could these two be any more handsome?
Jasper and Callum both rocking a good knitted jumper - is there anything cuter?
I know, I know....I've got to stop with the cute....
More? Oh go on then....
I'm looking forward to doing another photo fundraiser day for NCT Aberdeen next weekend, in advance of Mothers Day at the end of March. The slots are currently sold out, but you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on the waiting list!
