Baby twin girls – 3 months old – London baby Photographer

A sneak peek into Eloise & Annabelle’s first photo session. Absolutely adorable! As you know I specialise in newborn baby photography, sleepy, eyes shut and gently moulded kinda shots. Well, this was a completely different challenge all together. These two were such smiley happy little girls! Facial expressions change by the second and boy do you have to work hard to nail the shots! Staring into a big black camera wasn’t exactly interesting so being a dancing singing clown has now become part of my job description! ‘We had a wonderful time.This family has really made me so excited about this new adventure I’m entering.

Enjoy! ( I think the last image needs a caption  )

Newborn twin boys – Wandsworth Newborn baby Photographer

Such a lovely session with Leonard & Stanley. 4 weeks old already! I just love working with twins and especially capturing that special image of them together. They both decided that syncing sleep and feeds was not the agenda however I love the challenge and its all so worth it at the end! Such sweet boys. They both loved to stretch out, gorgeous! We had great company and lots of pairs of hands with both Grandmas there to help out and be part of this special day. Welcome to the world little ones and thank you for all those extra cuddles between shots. You are so very loved.

Martha Grieve gains a ‘Bar” at the Guild of Photographers annual awards evening

Martha Grieve - Guild of Photographers Award

I just had the most wonderful weekend away in Crewe Hall, Cheshire, where I spent an evening at the ‘Guild of Photographers’ annual awards dinner.

Mingling and finally meeting face to face with fellow photographers in the Guild that I have become acquainted with over the forum. I am so excited to share that I won a “PHOTOGRAPHERS BAR”!  Only 26 people won this award across the UK and internationally and I am one proud photographer to be named one of them. Just to let you know what this award entails…

 

“The Photographers Bar is awarded to very few photographers who have successfully had images assessed by the Guild month after month over the course of the year and have attained a score equating to an award for each image entered, thereby evidencing an exceptional level of professional skill and consistency”

 

This was a daunting personal commitment that I made back in January 2013.  It was tough but I stuck to it, spending hours fine-tuning the images to be ready for judging, hoping every month my three images entered would be award winners…  As any Guild member will tell you, we all sit glued to our emails on the 21st of every month, anxiously awaiting RESULTS DAY!

 

The results were good!  My hard work paid off and I was so proud to walk up and accept my award on the evening.

A special thank you to all my clients who supported me and were more than happy to have an image of themselves or child entered into competition. Looking forward to 2014 with new challenges ahead!
