I’m sooooo excited as I just found out I won another award with SWPP (Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers) for the July monthly image competition, Children’s category!
I think it’s really important to have personal projects as a photographer, and after begging my poor Mum to make me a teepee for a shoot idea I had, I dragged my little girls and my very patient husband into the forest to catch the late afternoon sun coming down over the bluebells in the forest! After finding a spot which wouldn’t damage any of the flowers, I set up my teepee and just prayed my girls would stay still long enough for me to get a shot! Of course, it wasn’t pure luck, I had a few tricks up my sleeve to keep them in place, but the light was gorgeous and it all came together to create this shot, which I am very proud of and which was given a Highly Commended in this months awards!
I love being a children’s photographer and spend many hours dreaming up shoots and creative ideas on keeping them entertained while I capture their little personalities! This award is extra special to me as it features my two little girls – one for the wall I think?!
