And the Award goes to…

This Sunday, the 89th Academy Awards – a.k.a. the Oscars – will be held in Hollywood. The great and the good from the movie industry will attend and the best actors, actresses and movies of the past year will be celebrated.

Purely in the name of fun, I have decided to create my very own version of the Oscars to tie in with this prestigious event.

Having had my photography business established for six years now, I have a tonne of adorable newborn baby and kids portraits in my portfolio.

So, I thought it would be fun to look back and celebrate some of these gorgeous children.

I love photographing children of all ages

Babies and children are just the cutest people to photograph.

Those of you who have hired me as your portrait photographer and recommended me to your friends will know that I absolutely LOVE my job.

Getting to meet so many delightful little people makes my work so much fun!

The innocence of a sleeping newborn right through to the mischievous grins of a one-year-old during their first birthday cake smash shoot are just some of the things I enjoy the most.

So, ladies and gentleman, without further ado, let me introduce you to…

The KW Photography Baby Oscars

In this inaugural KW Photography Baby Oscars, I’m celebrating some of my favourite images from the past year.

And there are prizes for the winners – if your child is featured below please contact me via the comments box below to claim your prize which is a free 10 x 8 print worth £25.00.

The KW Photography Baby Oscar for the ‘Best Newborn Smile’ goes to…

Bea: Back in July 2016, Bea came along with her mummy and absolutely stole my heart with her great big grin. She was just six weeks old at the time and really loved that camera. Yeah baby!

The KW Photography Baby Oscar for the ‘Best Pout’ goes to…

Theo: This was an easy one to choose. There was no contest really!

All Theo had to do during his photo session was to enjoy his cake smash cake and be the star of my cake smash video. But, no, he had other ideas!

It’s true what they say about working with kids and animals! Ha ha!

The KW Photography Baby Oscar for the ‘Best Yawn’ goes to…

Benjamin: Just look at that sleepy head! Oh, it’s such hard work being just a few days old!

The KW Photography Baby Oscar for the ‘Best Splash’ goes to…

Alyssa: I had so many adorable children in for cake smashes during 2016. Alyssa’s still makes me laugh out loud! She was so excited!

The KW Photography Baby Oscar for the ‘Best Smash’ goes to…

Woody, Hugo and Rosie: Being triplets, they will have to share their cake smash crown, just as they shared their cake. Hats off to mummy and daddy! Triplets as active as these three needs heaps of energy!

The KW Photography Baby Oscar for the ‘Best Chin Dimple’ goes to…

Daisy: Perfect in every way! I love her gorgeous little chin dimple.

The KW Photography Baby Oscar for the ‘Best Newborn Hair’ goes to…

Florence: Just look at those gorgeous locks!

The KW Photography Baby Oscar for the ‘Best Dressed’ goes to…

Elsie: She wins the best-dressed crown hands down. She stole the show in her mummy’s wedding dress.
