Last night we made a quick dash to Coventry to the gala awards dinner for the The Newborn and Portrait Show
I won Outdoor Children's Photographer of the Year 2022! I also won third place in this category PLUS I was runner up for the Overall Digital Photographer of the Year award! What a night!
I also scored a massive 83 on my print image of Charlotte in the bluebells, and the legend that is Gary Hill (Art Of The Portrait) gave it an 84 and called it 'amazing' which is quite an honour!
Thank you to all the outdoor photographers who I have trained with over the years who have helped to inspire me to develop my own sense of style and storytelling. A particular thank you to Lisa McCormick Photography who was the first person to say 'you're an outdoor photographer'. This meant everything. Thank you also to Roberta Baneviciene Photography, Noelle Mirabella Photography and Djeirana Photography who continue to help and guide me in my work.
And last, but by no means least thank you to my husband who always believed that I could do this even when I wasn't so sure.
When I started photography my goal was to achieve Outdoor Photographer of the Year - dreams do come true if you work hard and believe. Thank you to all my clients who come back year after year, you make this possible.
