I began my professional journey in newborn and baby photography in 2016, after wanting to merge my love of photography and midwifery. From experiencing the magic of having my own two daughters and after helping to deliver my goddaughter a few years back I fell in love with everything to do with child birth and everything that goes along side it.
I first took the plunge by driving hundreds of miles to complete my first set of newborn posing and safety training and I loved every minute of it. It certainly felt like I had found something that I could give my all too, and with more and more training, it quickly developed into me having my own amazing independent award winning company providing a service of excellence to all my clients.
Awards with the Guild of Photographers
The past year has just been incredible. In September 2017 I won my first set of prestigious awards with the Guild of Photographers. The Guild of Photographers (The Guild) is a professional organisation that supports and mentors photographers to be the best photographers that they can be. They are run by a highly regarded group of highly skilled professional photographers and without them I just wouldn’t be where I am today.
Each month The Guild run an “Image of the Month (IOM)” competition designed to push photographers to challenge themselves and produce exceptional images to be judged by a panel of some of the best photographers in the industry. In the last year I have challenged myself to enter month on month and I am delighted to have won awards in every month entered. Below are the very first images that were awarded a bronze bar by the The Guild. A Bronze bar is a highly sort after award and the Guild describe this as a professional level of imagery that is incredibly tough to achieve.
