What’s the background of the company? When did it start? How has it evolved over time?
Co-owner Kim Anderson has been a professional newborn photographer for over 10 years and has had countless parents ask her where they could buy the props she was using for the photo shoots. This inspired her idea for the business and she joined forces with Carol Kennedy, a business consultant, and launched Daisy and Honeybee in September 2014. The company started with a limited offering of portrait products and now has a very complete range of accessories including small and larger Baby Portrait Sets, Posing Baskets and Personalized Crates, stretch, tieback and elastic headbands, mohair cap/wrap sets and tutus. We have used the feedback from our customers to refine our product offerings.
What can parents except to see from Daisy and Honeybee at the New York Baby Show and in the future in general?
We will be featuring our Babybee Portrait Sets, Littlebee Gift Bags and our luxury Posing Baskets and Crates at the New York Baby show. We plan to expand the business in the future by offering more portrait products for older babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
