I joined The Guild of Photographers last year, it's a well regarded photography association that has some amazing photographers amongst its members. Part of the reason that I joined is that I want to further develop my skills and continually challenge myself. The Guild runs a monthly, national, competition for its members which is judged by some of the top photographers in the country, competition is steep and the judging is harsh! This was my second time entering (the first time back in October I didn't do so well) and one of my goals for 2016 was to win an award for my photography, so I was absolutely thrilled to have achieved a Bronze Award for this image of Charlie and his beautiful sister in the category of newborn and baby photography.
Many thanks go to Charlie and his family for all of their support!
