Newborn Photography Award Winner!
NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY AWARD WINNER
NEWBORN AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY WARWICKSHIRE
ELLIE J PHOTOGRAPHY
A very quick blog this time just to say how chuffed I am to have won the latest quarterly award with the 'Your Perfect Newborn' website.
I've won awards before, but this one is special because it recognises my work after a very long and stressful few months! It has been a worrying time, first during lock down with such an uncertain future for my business, then with all the work I have had to undertake to ensure that I could open as safely as possible for my wonderful clients.
My socially distanced studio sessions are now up and running, with health and safety precautions in place (you can read all about that here)
I was nervous welcoming my first newborn clients into the studio. I've had to change the way I have worked for over 12 years, and not being able to get close to people or hold/pose baby has been horrible (I really miss my cuddles!). However, things have been going very well and my clients have been wonderfully accepting of my new way of working. In fact, I have been told how safe clients felt during the session, which is a huge relief as the last thing a new parent needs is to be worrying about the safety of their baby.
This lovely couple were among my earliest clients after lock down. They came to see me with their gorgeous new baby, Effie. Mum and dad both took direction very well and I was so pleased with their photographs. This one in particular is a favourite of mine so I was doubly chuffed to find out that it had been selected as Your Perfect Newborn's winner for their quarterly awards!
Thanks to mum and dad for being so wonderful, and thanks for reading!
