Silver Award for a Newborn Portrait – Blue Butterflies!

I was over the moon this week to be awarded a Silver in the MPA (Master Photographer Association) Monthly Portrait competition!

The competition is tough but I enter it with images, which are photographed with real newborn baby clients on a day to day basis! We had to work so hard to get this image and it was 100% worth it! This little girl was a complete fidget and each time I went to take the shot, she moved just enough that I had to reposition her again! From the tiny scrunching of a finger to a little turn of her head, it all makes a difference to the final image! 2 clicks later and she was wide awake and wanting a feed! Phew!

The judge said my image was “exquisite” and quoted me as “one of the best newborn photographers around at the moment” – Wow oh wow!

I enter the awards, not just for personal gratification, but to continuously improve and make each shot better than the last! I love that this little girls parents gave me free reign over the set ups for her session, which allowed me to put together something totally unique.

If you have an idea for your newborn session then talk to me about it! I love trying out new ideas and making each newborn session unique and personal to you!
