It's sometimes said never to work with children and animals (and I think some might add babies to the list!) but our shoot could not have been easier. Our lovely model Philippa and her totally gorgeous daughter Ella were the perfect mum and baby for the Meelight nightlight shoot. Baby Ella was a natural in front of the camera - breastfeeding and sleeping right on cue, she impressed the Meelight team no end; next stop LA?!
Making a video in the dark can be tricky - the bedroom needed to be seriously dark, despite the video being filmed on a very sunny and bright day! With some heavy duty black out blinds we managed to get the room dark enough to look like night time, but also just light enough to show what was going on; We think we got the balance just right. Meelight's soft golden glow gave the perfect amount of light so Philippa could see to latch-on, breastfeed and settle Ella to sleep in her cot, with a cuddle and a nappy change or two thrown in along the way!
Meelight helps everyone sleep well and we all know that a sleeping baby = happiness!
