I love meeting clever and creative people, and it was such a pleasure to recently meet Holly from Sweet Little Dreamers, a one of a kind photo experience for babies and young children in Perth.
Holly came up with the idea after the birth of her son Harper, when she wondered what he dreamt about at night and from there started to hand make dreamer sets like dancing with dinosaurs, landing in outer space, flying with butterflies, swimming with a whale plus loads more.
These dream photos are then created into the most beautiful, personalised story books where your child is the star.
Holly has a fascinating background – a former professional runner, as well as studying photography she also has a Psychology degree and told me that a child who has a positive self-perception is more likely to succeed academically, socially and physically. *
Last week I took my energetic Chloe Bear in to have her own Sweet Little Dreamers photo experience, and we had so much fun!
Normally having photos of little ones can be a bit stressful, but Holly ensures the experience is really relaxed and enjoyable.
I’m SO excited for my little book lover to see herself star in her very own story book, (I may even have to take Ava back so she can have one too!)
I’m so excited to have met Holly and discovered Sweet Little Dreamers – the photos and story book will be something Chloe will treasure forever.
I also love that Sweet Little Dreamers have gift vouchers available – such a beautiful and unique gift idea for baby showers and new mums.
Here’s to giving our children the gift of daring to dream!

Have you had professional photos done of your children?
How did they go?
‘As a Mum, I love that my son Harper can look at his book and know that there are no limits to what he and his imagination can accomplish. Children have a blank canvas it is up to us as parents to love them, dare them to dream and see what an amazing life they can create.
I created Sweet Little Dreamers so more young children can experience what my son has and give them the gift of daring to dream.
I hope that each child’s book sets them up with a positive and ambitious sense of self holding them in great stead for their exciting future.’ Holly Noack – Sweet Little Dreamers
