My Silver Award Achievements with The Guild of Photographers

Photography has been my passion for many many years and yet still a week doesn’t pass when I don’t learn something new, whether it be in camera, lighting or in editing. Year on year I see how I continue to improve and grow and this is reflected by my awards and achievements.

Over this last year I have achieved several Silvers with The Guild of Photographers, a lovely step in the right direction from the previous years Bronzes of which I am still very proud.

I thought I would share some of my Silvers with you here. As you can see I have achieved Silver in Newborn, Maternity, Pets. and Portraiture too.

Bring a prop

My aim is to create beautiful photographs during your Newborn Session that you will treasure forever. To do this I always invite parents to bring along any special items to the shoot. They are often items like a beautiful blanket that Nanny has crocheted, or an old teddy which was once Mummy's favourite. Sometimes the items can be larger, like this stunning 'toy' car that Mummy and Daddy bought for his nursery.  These extra special elements make the Newborn Session unique and personal to that family.
