A few weeks back I said on my Facebook page that I had received some great news. Well, now the official handover has happened I can tell you just what that news was!
A few months back I was contacted by one of my lovely clients who asked if I would care to submit some work for consideration by Warwick Hospital, who were asking for photos of newborns to put on display in their Maternity Unit. The idea, I was told, was that having the photos on display would give the unit more of a "homely feel" for patients and visitors.
I was only too pleased to help and so, after speaking with Helen Keast, Chair of the Maternity Partnership, I sent over a selection of my images for their consideration.
There was a fantastic response to the appeal, with over 150 images submitted which had to be whittled down to a final 37 to be put on permanent display.
I was over the moon to learn that ten of mine had been chosen!
Now I'm not going to lie, the fact that my work was chosen by the panel has been a wonderful boost for my self esteem, but I am also chuffed to bits to think that I am able to have my images on display in the very place that so many of my gorgeous little clients come into the world.
Speaking of my little clients, thank you so much to all my lovely mums and dads (you know who you are!) who agreed that the images of their little ones could be used.
The hospital have promised to send us photographs of the images once they are framed and hung and I will of course update you when that happens.
Meanwhile, you can read a copy of the hospital's press release and see two of my images (far right) here.
