We’re delighted to announce that Marcin’s fine art breastfeeding portrait has won a Gold award in The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers monthly competition in the studio portrait category.
This is our first award of the year for our fine art portraits and we’re glad it was of a subject that represents the intimate and special bond between a mother and child when they are breastfeeding.
This image was also one of nine Bronze awards in The Guild of Photographers monthly competition. See our Facebook Gallery of awards from The Guild of Photographers.
Breastfeeding portraits are becoming more popular with parents who not only cherish this time of closeness that they have with their child but want to capture it in a tasteful and beautiful portrait. More than 73% of mothers in the UK start breastfeeding so it’s not surprising that more people are asking for pictures like this. Something which helps build a strong and emotional bond between mother a child is bound to result in a lovely image.
There are many milestones we photograph in our studio. Beginning with stunning maternity images we follow that with beautiful newborn photos and our first year Watch Me Grow photography offer. Everything from first smiles to first steps is part of what we do so its only natural that breastfeeding also be part of those memories we capture.
There are many ways to photographically approach the subject of breastfeeding which is why we wanted to put our studio’s own unique touch on it.
This year we have been developing our Fine Art portrait style and we think it’s something that fits perfectly in with a breastfeeding portrait.
How this breastfeeding portrait was created
This was part of a short series of images taken at the end of a portrait session taken in our old Wimbledon studio. Both the mother and child are wrapped in material we have in the studio and it was photographed against a plain background.
In editing the portrait was toned to match our fine art style and the background texture was added digitally.
“This is a subject which needs to be photographed properly, the lighting, posing, clothing and editing need to be right to make this type of portrait what it deserves to be” said creator and award winning photographer Marcin.
“Something like a breastfeeding portrait needs to be done properly by the right photographer with the right approach”.
Why you should hire us to take your breastfeeding portrait
They’re aren’t many (if any) other photographers in the UK winning awards for their breastfeeding portraiture. Whilst breastfeeding photos are not a new thing for photographers we believe that our approach the subject is quite different than many others.
If you like our style of fine art portraiture then give us a call to discuss the type of portrait you would like with your child.
Book your own breastfeeding portrait
We would without a doubt recommend you book a Fine Art portrait session with us. Your breastfeeding portrait will only be a small part of what will be a larger photo session but it will no doubt be the most intimate and special part of it.
To celebrate our award winning breastfeeding portrait we have special offer on Fine Art portraits in our Wimbledon studio.
