* Monthly Photography competition winner announced
* South Croydon mum wins top prize of a £299 Wall Art for her home
* Croydon Photography studio celebrates 10th Birthday
This year once again we’re giving away a Wall Art prize worth £299 every single month!
This month’s competition was a closely contested affair with one image just nudging out in front.
In January Memory Gate Photography celebrated our tenth birthday. It’s been two years since we found our new home in Croydon and we haven’t looked back since.
One thing that has always been a part of our business is amazing baby photography. As parents ourselves we know how important those first year photos really can be.
Photographing babies throughout their first year has always been one of our specialties. If we haven’t captured a newborn or maternity photography session then normally our first shoot with baby is at around the 3 month point.
Our Image of the month winner was the perfect age for a first stage Watch Me Grow photography session and it shows!
Not only was she very comfortable with tummy time but we managed to coax plenty of adorable smiles out of her.
As our photo studio is located just off the Purley Way Croydon we have people visit us from all over South London. It’s nice to have a local South Croydon customer win this month.
I’m not really surprised that this photo got so many likes and comments on our Facebook page and won this month’s competition!
Once our onsite printing partners The Print Foundry get our Wall Art ready it’ll hang in the Photo Cafe for a couple of weeks before it goes home with a very proud mummy!
Looking for photos of your baby?
There’s so many milestones in a baby’s first year which are amazing to capture. Our Croydon studio has been designed to photograph babies of all ages from newborn to toddlers and beyond!
If you’re pregnant then I would certainly recommend booking at maternity session. What normally follows is a newborn photoshoot within the first two weeks. Most people do opt for our great value Bump to Baby promotion as it includes both sessions and a print from each shoot.
There’s so many stages in the baby’s first year but we’ve found the best milestones after newborn are 4 months, when baby can lift their head, 8 months, when baby can sit comfortably and the first birthday when baby can stand.
What about Cake Smash Photography?
How could I possibly forget about first year cake smash photoshoots?!?!
Last year was a massive year for cake smash photography and by the looks of things 2019 is going to be even bigger!
If you haven’t already…book your cake Smash session at our Croydon studio today!
It is often the case that one of our Cake Smash images either wins our monthly competition or comes in a close second. This month it was the latter. As you can see from the image below we had a lot of fun on this Cake Smash!
Don’t forget about those family photos
The other runner up in our competition who just missed out in winning a wall art was from a family session we photographed last month.
This was another one of those tummy time pictures that just worked. I love the expressions on these two and it was a fun session to shoot.
