Baby, look at you now!

There are few things more heartwarming than photos of cute kids – especially at Christmas! It is the time of year when there are all the ‘looking back at the year that was’ programmes on TV so I thought it would make a fun blog post to show you what the BritMums team looked like… as babies! As bloggers, we share so many photos of our kids as babies and children, this time the tables have turned! The people behind the monthly round-up posts, our Managing Director and Creative Director, the Social Media Manager – all look so professional in their head & shoulders shots that accompany their posts, but here’s how they started out!

Let’s kick off with very own Susanna Scott – Managing Director at BritMums.  Aww!

Now here’s the BritMums Creative Director Jen Howze who promises us that she is a normal colour in real life!! At the studio where they did the photoshoot they hand tinted the pictures a bit so she looked like a pink healthy baby. As a result she says, her appearance is very pink in this slightly faded version!

Here is one of me, I’m now the BritMums Editor but I still seem to have the same expression…  Just take a look at the author box at the end of this post to compare!

Amie Shearer, our Under 30 Parents Round-up Editor who feels her sense of style has improved since 1993!  I love how tall she is standing – great posture!

Instagram Editor Amy Treasure with a cat – I love how even back then she could match up the foreground to the background.  Now we just need to add a filter, crop a little and Instagram done! #checkedcat

About Nadine Hill

Nadine is a busy mum (β€œIs there any other kind?!”) who writes the award winning family lifestyle blog, JuggleMum and self help blog Love Yourself Slim. Working from home at a portfolio career which also includes being the Editor at BritMums, running a small business and spreading herself all over social media, she has everything under control but still feels like she's hanging on by her Gelish covered fingernails! Self employed for 12 years she's been around the freelancing block a few times, so she created a YouTube playlist called The Businessmum Interviews to have a nosey at how other work-at-home parents are doing it. Watch and see - it's a juggling act for everyone! Immensly grateful to be doing what she loves, Nadine's most important job is 'Mum' to her teen and tween who keep her up to date with Snapchat, Minecraft and how to do 'brows on fleek'. You can find Nadine on Twitter and Instagram as @Businessmum and @JuggleMumBlog.
