Winner of our December Image of the Month studio portrait competition. Photo to be displayed in the Photo Cafe Croydon just off the Purley Way.
Last year to celebrate the opening of our brand new portrait studio and Photo Cafe here in Croydon we launched a image of the Month competition.
The winner each month will receive one of our signature wall art pieces after it spends a little time on the wall of the Photo Cafe.
Entry to the competition is simple; when you come to order your images at your viewing session choose an image you’d like us to share on our Facebook page.
Out of the three most popular images a judge will pick a winner.
The criteria for the winning image is entirely up to the Judge (which changes each month).
As it’s our first month I have decided to take it on myself to pick the winner.
It was a hard choice to make as we captured so many great expressions and memories but one really stood out.
In the past 15 years I’ve taken professional studio portraits of over a quarter of a million people. The ones that stand out in my memory are the ones with great stories and amazing expressions.
This image has both. Without going into too much detail it’s fair to say that this little fella has had a tougher start to life than most children.
But what a remember about the shoot was a vast array of amazing expressions he was making.
The photography session in question was a 1st birthday Cake Smash session. If you haven’t heard of a cake smash before then please do check out some of the images in our gallery and on our Facebook Page. It’s been one of our most popular shoots for 2017 and I imagine we’ll be doing plenty more in 2018.
This image was taken at the beginning of the Cake Smash during the nice and clean mini portrait shoot. I loved the little outfit he was wearing and the expression matched perfectly.
I’m looking forward to having this image up in our gallery in the Photo Cafe for a couple of weeks before it goes home with mum.
