Isoki - Contemporary Baby Bags

Isoki have been a long standing client of mine and I loved their products from the moment I saw them.
Their idea was to create a baby bag that was not only functional but fashionable too.

Shooting their new range was a joy, with some great new fabric choices & styles, they are sure to have something for everyone. Some of the bags are also limited edition, so you can be sure that not everyone will have the same  bag as you.

The studio was a wash with models, bags, mum's and babies. It's always a huge day,  and we got some great shots. The new catalogue should be out in the next few weeks, you can download a Pdf from their web site.

If you want more info on the Isoki product range visit www.isoki.com.au
