Hello and welcome to our little blog.

I'm Nicole Walters
Mama of two littles, Lucas & Iris, growing our (surprise) little moomin "baby no.3" and also Wife to Brad!
You're most likely to find me with a Venti sized Starbucks or my camera in my hand, and dancing around the house to Disney songs. We're a small family from Hampshire with a love for Candid photos, special home videos and documenting and capturing life's little ups and downs in a raw and honest way.
To work with us please email:

Find out more about the four of us, in detail, below.


I've been blogging for four and a half years, but re-started and rebranded to The littlest Darlings, from Dear little Lucas. It works best for our family and I have found it to be such a positive change and helping me feel like a brand and not just a blog. I am a freelance photographer (Although heading back into care for a while , I own The littlest darlings photography branching out from just photographing my littles, and photographing others littles too, as well as weddings, and other events.
I am a social media manager and web designer for my lifelong friend Ellisha at Mirror Digital Media

I used to be a co-founder of a magazine for parents called "oh lilla" and "Littles." - Sadly we had to stop when the funds ran out. I also used to write for Southampton Focus, a website aimed at Southampton residents and people visiting Southampton

Our biggest, little human is a cheeky little chappy who is 3 years old and known to us as our little bear. He is absolutely obsessed with all things Disney, Thomas the tank engine, Peppa pig, Kinder and Sarah and Duck. He is the biggest chatterbox and has the most sarcastic, hilarious personality of any toddler you'll ever meet. He's full of beans and usually bananas. He's a bundle of laughs anyway. You'll usually find him playing in forest school, exploring, pretending to be the pj masks, saying he's hungry. dancing or kissing his sister.

Our littlest, little is a sweet, little darling, who is known as our little Flower and she is one year old. She loves Disney, dancing, music and her Brother (they get on so well). She's usually rocking the Autumnal colours with a cute bobble hat or hair tie on and walking like bambi around the woods exploring and eating sticks and dirt. She is just as much as and adventurer as her brother. She adores Disney and loves watching the films snuggled up with Mama or Daddy. She's obsessed with the word NO, being cheeky, eating cake, yelling the animal she can see and cuddling and kissing us all.

The handsome, bearded man who came into my life six and a half years ago, blessed me with two children (nearly three) an engagement and then married me on November 3rd 2017. He is patient, kind and loving. He is an incredible man. He loves Disney, Pokemon, Marvel, DC, Me, food and hiding in the bathroom for 45 minutes on his phone pretending to poo.

Here I like to document our highs and our lows and the little bits in between.
We like to travel and go on adventures, attempt to be fashionistas, review products, write letters to Lucas & Iris (and our new littlest darling), document the milestones, the smiles and the tears and keeping everyone fed, watered, clean and alive in the process.
I am in no way the best mother and neither do I think that, I make mistakes, do things that are a little naughty as much as the next person, but my heart is full of love and care and a love for writing, vintage, photography, travel, adventures, fashion and the housey bits.
I love to review products and would love to review any products of yours if you would like to send them we'd love to receive them. If you want to book me for a photoshoot or a video or if you wanna just say HI, then feel free to email me. Contact can be made HERE
