Hello and welcome to Hello Fern.
I’m Tahnee, the face behind this beautiful business.
I live by the beach in Sarina, near Mackay, Queensland with my husband and our 2 sons, 10 year old Axl, and our 2 year old IVF miracle Huxley. We also own a labour hire company in the mining sector. Needless to say, I am super busy, and there is never a dull moment, but I love it.
Our family loves to travel, it is absolutely what motivates my husband and I to work so hard. I’m blessed that we have already been able to show our boys some amazing parts of the world, watching them grow and become independent little people brings me so much joy. So far, we have travelled to Singapore, Thailand, Japan, New Zealand, Fiji, China, USA and Canada.
Originally a primary school teacher, I then spent 6 years as a professional photographer, both roles meant I had the honour of being included in many special milestones in people’s lives. I loved the creativity of photography, but chasing that beautiful afternoon light had me leaving my sons with baby-sitters, I also found photography hard on my body during the 5 years I was going through fertility treatment. I am so aware of how different everyone’s journey can be and how important it is to stop amidst the crazy chaos of our lives and just soak up the little moments.
Hello Fern is a way for me to get the best of both worlds. I can work from home, around the boy’s routines whilst designing beautiful items, and I still get that buzz of being part of your special moments as your babies (and bellies!) grow.
Every item is designed, cut, etched, hand sanded and packaged right here on our family property. I know how precious pregnancy is, and I am so humbled by, and thankful for, every single order. By choosing Hello Fern you are directly supporting my family.
It brings me so much joy to feature in your treasured memories, whether it be a birth announcement, capturing your bump progress or remembering each little milestone as your baby grows. It is such an honour to play a small part in these moments.
Thank you for sharing your journey with us.
