TBT | Baby foot and hand cast

It's a Thursday and I think it's time for another throwback. Last time we looked at our newborn photo shoot, and if you have a little one you should get one too. I want to tell you about the hand and foot cast that I had made for my husband for a special gift for Christmas. I wanted to get him a gift that would be personal, unique and something he wouldn't expect. After a lot of research I came across baby casting, what a unique gift this would be. If there are any pregnant ladies or parents with a new-born who are reading my blog post I would highly recommend having a cast done, something that you can cherish forever.

I had my daughter's hand and foot cast by Francis Mortin at 3D Castings and I cannot recommend this lady enough so please check out her website and her Facebook page out. I was so excited about getting her casting but it was so difficult to keep it under wraps from the husband. Turns out he figured it out anyway. Francis was so great with our daughter and she knew exactly how I wanted the castings. We were at her studio for an hour then we went home awaiting an email with photos of the finished casts. But unfortunately they didn't turn out the way we had both hoped so we arranged another appointment, free of charge. The second casts were amazing and we both were really pleased at how they turned out.

It was time to give my husband him his gift and he was so pleased, however he had worked out what we had been up to. It turns out my husband found a small piece of plaster under her finger nail. Even though he knew he was still happy and loved his gift, it's such a unique gift to get for someone. Francis did some beautiful work on the new-born casts of my daughter's hand and foot that we will cherish forever.


  1. These are amazing, so good for the nursery. I wish I'd done it because when I look at photos I can't believe his feet were eve so small x
