What the Children Wore // The Bunting Tree
I’ve recently launched my photography business (In the Den Photography if you fancy a gander – website content is still in progress, but it’s looking pretty!) specialising in natural light photography – predominantly childrenswear brand images/look book images for independent designers, and family shoots.
My first client was the very lovely Emma from The Bunting Tree, who is just about to launch her amazing new childrenswear range this week (you can pre-order now).
The fabric is designed by her here in Yorkshire, printed and made in India by a Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified factory, photographed by me back in Yorkshire, and then sold from her own website – as well as a number of online retailers.
Emma paints on tissue paper, which is then cut out into shapes and stuck onto paper to create individual graphics – these graphics are then arranged electronically to create The Bunting Tree’s stunning designs. It’s the technique Eric Carle uses in his illustrations, and it makes the most perfect designs for clothes that children want to wear, and that parents want their children to wear.
I was SO excited when Emma asked me to shoot her brand images. I’ve known Emma for a while now; initially online, as I stocked her handmade leggings when I ran The Little Geekery Company and, since we’ve relocated to Yorkshire, Emma and I have had brunch a few times! She’s an incredibly talented Mama to two boys, and I can’t wax lyrical about this new range enough.
These photos are all from the brand image shoot, hence the In the Den copyright, so you may have already seen some of them on social media!
The t-shirts come in two designs: Brollies & Blizzards (the white and purple print) and British Summer (the rainbow print), and in two different styles of top: long-sleeved and short-sleeved.
They are made from the softest organic cotton, and the prints are both so beautiful and vibrant – wash after wash.
Both children love wearing their t-shirts, and Busby actively chooses hers from the wardrobe which speaks volumes! They’re very easy to move in and make the most perfect playwear.
They are gorgeous on their own as a t-shirt with trousers/skirt, or teamed with dungarees or pinafores. We’ve had so many positive comments while the children have been wearing them out and about.
Sizing is true to size: H-Bear wears 12-18 months, which fits perfectly with room to grow, and Busby is in age 4-5 years, which again fits well with room to grow.
The long-sleeved tops cost £20 and the short-sleeved are £18. The quality is outstanding and they really are the most beautiful t-shirts.
