So far this year, Valentine’s weekend was probably one of BAC Photography’s favourites.
Belinda, Sinead and Jill got to spend the weekend at their first Pregnancy, Baby and Children’s Expo at the Exhibition and Convention Centre, in South Brisbane. A lot of people always comment how lucky Belinda is, being able to spend her days creating beautiful memories for people, but also being able to cuddle babies, play with children, take beautiful portraits, and (of course) play with puppies; so, this weekend was another one to add to the list of amazing experiences. We spent the weekend meeting soon to be parents, animal lovers, growing families and learned about their journeys and experiences that led them to where they are today.
Leading up to the Expo Belinda had new wall art printed. It was the first time that she had metal prints made, and the result was amazing! They were light, glossy and easy to hang, which worked out perfect for the Expo setup. On the Friday, Belinda set up the stand to showcase some of the best pieces from BAC Photography, displaying the different sizes, materials and options available. The stand was eye catching and the portraits attracted people’s attention as they walked by. Everyone loved the metal print of three Labrador puppies sitting in a basket. It became a conversation starter for families wanting to include animals in their photos.
Across the weekend we managed to spend time talking to different vendors and discovering new products. A huge favourite was Everymite, a healthy, no additive, allergy friendly superspread. The ladies were lovely and shared some of their brand history and story with us. We also made friends with the family from the Pain Pod, and ‘borrowed’ their beautiful baby girl for a few hours! She had given them a hard time the night before, so to give them time to speak to customers, we played with her until Jill managed to get her to sleep. She had a nice snooze in the pram, at the back of our stand for a few hours.
Since the expo Belinda has been busy completing bookings taken across the weekend and we are still trying to get back to everyone. We are working hard towards catching up and hope to have everyone contacted soon. In the meantime, if have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.
For BAC, I think this weekend was a success, and we will definitely be back again in the future!
