About our store Name:
We wanted a name to represent the images one would take of their child and came up with the slogan…to capture one still moment of a babies life…aka Still Moments Nursery.
The name originated from the fact that these dolls never move or change…hence our name of capturing a Still Moment of a babies life.
I have been producing Completed Reborn Baby Dolls since early 2004.
Born in New Zealand, Growing up in Papua New Guinea and Tasmania, my passion for dolls started when I was very young.
I first came across Reborns when I was searching the Internet looking for porcelain dolls to add to my collection.
However, my search took a diversion when I stumbled across these lifelike dolls called Reborn Dolls.
Reborn Dolls are made out of soft translucent vinyl and through a very long process are enhanced to resemble real life babies / newborn infants.
This process called ‘reborning’ has been around since the early 1990s.
“I spent weeks looking through all the babies on offer and I just couldn’t get over how much detailing they all had,” she remembers. “When I finally found
‘Tristan’, he looked so sweet sleeping on a beanbag, I just had to have him.”

Finding ‘Tristan’ ultimately changed my career and life path.
“My first baby turned out okay but I was flying blind,” she recalls. “I was using stencil creams and he has a wig applied as I didn’t know about felting needles then.
He did turn out a little on the red side but I learnt as I went along how to thin down the paints.”
Hooked after my first go, I started to make more reborns, perfecting my intricate art.
“I tried my hand at most things – sewing, woodwork, cross stitch – but I always came back to painting,” she says. “I get this from my father, who is
My expert advice is: “Don’t be scared to jump in, the coats should be very watery and remember the paint is removable until you heat it;
so keep playing around until you have the look you are after.”
Together with my partner Tim, I decided to become a full time reborn artist, giving up a career in catering.
But I has never looked back and am loving every minute I have reborning my dolls and help customers find thing they are needing to complete their baby.
