Did you shoot the image for the showcase or as part of a client session?
“I shot the image as part of a client session.”
What stood out to you about the image, why did you choose it for your entry?
“I loved her gorgeous face and the vibrant colours I got to use for the session. I also feel it is a perfect representation of my work. Colourful with a rustic flair!”
Tell us about how you lit and set up the image
“I use a parabolic umbrella and an elinchrom d-lite to photograph all my newborns in the studio.”
Would you like to mention any suppliers whose products or props are used in the image?
What does winning the showcase mean to you?
“Winning the showcase felt like a huge achievement as I’ve been a member of BANPAS for many years now and always aimed to be good enough to win one day!”
As a Newborn Photographer what other elements of your BANPAS membership do you enjoy most?
“I’ve always loved the support and community of BANPAS as I’ve found it so helpful to chat to other newborn photographers. It can be such a solitary job that it is so lovely to have a sense of community amongst photographers.”
How long have you been shooting professionally?
Where do you work from?
“My home studio in North London.”
Tell us about your goals for your business
“I’ve been so lucky to have my business so much in such a short time! I will be grateful to continue on my path in such an amazing job, I feel so lucky to be able to work from home and call myself a photographer! In the future I’m thinking of challenging myself further by photographing weddings.”
How do you push yourself, where do you draw your inspiration from?
“I used to love looking at others’ work but now I tend to draw my inspiration from textures, colours and antique stores. I love putting various props ( wraps, headbands, stuffers etc) in front of me and figuring out how I combine them in a unique and creative way.”
