We're very lucky to only live a 45 minute train journey away from the capital, so when at The Baby Show in Bluewater last October we signed up for a photo shoot with Bumpkin Babies. It was £10 which included an hours shoot plus two copies of our chosen image and a frame!
We got off at Charing Cross and had to brave the tube from the Embankment to Turnham Green. It actually wasn't as bad as we thought as we managed to get seats, and although there wasn't any lifts we managed to carry the pram up and down the stairs easily enough.
It was a bit of an adventure to the place where the photo shoot was, as we didn't know this part of London. Although once there it was great! The staff were lovely and friendly, and took lots of different shots. We asked for mainly shots of the three of us as we didn't actually have many haha, and they were very accommodating. They also took some individual shots on Indie and of me and Jack with her separately. We took changes of clothes with us for Indie as well which they used too.
We didn't manage the whole hour as misses got grumpy towards the end due to being tired, but we got enough. So we went into the viewing room and had the extremely difficult task of choosing which picture we wanted. Of course we wanted them all! But they were quite pricey and realistically we couldn't afford it, but really wish we could!
We ended up choosing two shots of the three of us as we just couldn't pick the one. We love them both and cannot wait to put them up on the wall.. along with the growing collection of pictures we have of Indiana haha!
While in London we thought we'd make a day of it (we'd paid a crazy amount on train fare so we wanted to get our monies worth too!). So we hopped back on the tube and decided to visit the Natural History Museum as it was close by and most of all free haha, plus Jack wanted to see the dinosaurs bless him.
We then went to Planet Hollywood for dinner as a final treat. The food was so good, and the atmosphere is amazing, but it was just a shame we couldn't enjoy it as much, as miss fussy pants decided she wanted to play during dinner haha.
Overall it was an amazing, but tiring day! I could go to London a million times and still want to go back, and now we have Indie we have an excuse to take her to all the places you have to go when you visit London!
