January Maternity & Infant magazine

This is the latest Maternity & Infant magazine. Its the January/February issue, and we racked our brains trying to come up with a way to create a winter wonderland. It lashed rain on the day and In the end we just kept it simple, little did we know when we shot it in November that the country would be snowed in after Christmas!
