Daddy serves in the Army and big brother was so cool! what can I say about Riley the dog …..well he just about stole the show!! Amazing family and we just had an awesome day.

Baby is already here born 3 weeks early so I can’t wait to show you what a tiny cutie she is, but such a Diva already!

We got through so many poses and set ups during this session here are a few from the day. Prepare for image overload ha-ha.

National Award Winner with the Guild of Photographers

  National Award Winner with the Guild of Photographers

National Award Winner with the Guild of Photographers …..So very excited to share this with you all!

The Guild of Photographers is the highly regarded national photographic body whose members are dedicated to enhancing their skills in the art, craft and profession of photography.

It runs an Image of the Month competition, and received around 10,000 entries during 2014. Each image is scored, and the scores from the year are then totalled to determine who wins one of the Guild’s Top 10 Photographer awards / becomes the Guild’s Photographer of the Year. This is clearly a very demanding year long process!
was honoured to become Runner-Up Photographer of the Year in the Newborn and Baby genre – a remarkable achievement when one considers the number and standard of the entries.

My Award was presented to me at the Guild’s Awards night at Crewe Hall (a stunning Jacobean mansion in Cheshire), earlier this week.

Lesley Thirsk (Director of the Guild) said that she is “both proud and delighted that Sarah has achieved this recognition after 12 months of submitting the highest quality images. The Guild has very demanding standards when judging photographic competitions. The judging is undertaken by a panel of internationally recognised experts from a variety of photographic backgrounds, so she quite rightly should be delighted with my  extraordinary achievement” Yay!!!!

I cant quite believe it I am over the moon. There are so many wonderful Photographers within The Guild I really didn’t expect to hear my name called out”

I Won three awards on the day

1. Newborn & Baby Photographer of the Year 2014 – Runner up Award.
2.The distinction of The Photographers Bar which is a unique distinction awarded to very few photographers who have successfully had images assessed by The Guild over the course of a year, and attained a score equating to an award for each entry made thereby evidencing an exceptional level of professional skill and consistency.
3. International top 10 photographer award.

Auraprint Review

Auraprint

As a photographer, it’s no surprise that a lot of my promotional materials are very visual in nature – namely PRINT! In the past, I’ve used printed PVC banners, leaflets and stickers to promote the business locally,especially when I had my studio opening.  These things are all inexpensive yet effective, especially when compared to more traditional methods of advertising such as newspaper or magazine adverts. Of course, my promotional items also feature my photography – something I like to think will help them to be more effective!
Nottingham Baby PhotographerI get most of this type of print work done at a printing company in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire called Auraprint.

 

 

Auraprint
Auraprint produce all manner of print work, from stationery to exhibition graphics and have been great at supplying the banners, leaflets and stickers that I’ve needed. Their customer service is great, and they have super quick turnaround times along with great quality print. It’s a shame they’re not just down the road from me as I could collect and save on carriage, but even so I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them regardless of where you are in the UK.

 

 

Lee Brennan Opens Nottingham Photography Studio

Lee Brennan Opens Nottingham Photography Studio. The last day of August saw a massive day for Sarah Wilkes Photography with the official Opening of my new Studio, set within the heart of Floralands Farm Park & Garden Village Lambley in Nottingham.

The weather was fantastic and Mother Nature blessed us with a wonderful bright sunny day!

Lee Brennan from Boy Band 911 and ITV2’s Big reunion joined us for the day and even got me ‘Body Shakin’ with him ha-ha! We had Punch and Judy, Face paining and Party Animals where the children got the chance to touch and hold the animals and even paint a real live horse!! No word of a lie this horse at the end of the day looked soooo beautiful with its multicoloured hooves, flowers and colours all over it! Lee even painted the 911 logo ha-ha! We had refreshments on all day including hundreds of yummy cup cakes! It was truly an amazing day. We even had the press there and appeared in The Evening post, the day before to feature my work and the day after about the opening! How cool is that!

Here is a video of what we got up to during the day.

My goodness it’s been a while since I blogged! I thought I would share a few resent images of the gorgeous babies I have been photographing and hope to blog more over the next few weeks.

I am truly blessed to do this as my career! How many of us can say they are totally in love with what they do?
The hours are tough especially with all the editing, and into the small wee hours, but to see the reaction of my clients when they come to their viewing makes it totally worth it. To create that perfect gift for them, to know that my Wall Art of their beautiful baby will be displayed in their home for many a year and past down from generation to generation…How wonderful is that!
I recently had another photographer come to me for training as she was inspired by my work. This is what she said on her Facebook page later that day “Wow what an amazing and inspirational day! Thank you so much Sarah Wilkes for mentoring me today! Loved it! X x” Again makes me feel so proud I can share what I do.
For now I will leave you with some beautiful bundles of Joy!

Wow well this post is a very very long time in coming!

Some of you may remember my 1st post about my new studio and the refurb project, well you can see it here if you missed it, and to refresh your memory as this post is a follow on from where I left off and right up to the finished article!

When I say it is a long time in coming that is because I have been open since April and we are already in July but I have been so so busy that it has taken a while to bring this to you.

Blood, sweat, tears and a lot of frustration later I can finally show you my amazing new Boutique Studio space! This is what I like to call ‘My Happy Place’, with very special thanks to my Son’s Dad a great friend (Although after this not so sure now ha-ha!) You can see some of his amazing props scattered around the studio in my images and video. His website is http://www.wondrouswoods.co.uk/ Be sure to check it out if you are a newborn photographer.

I am open for people to just pop by and come look round but please pop me an email to ensure I will be there as I tend at the moment only go when I have shoots and then the main door will be locked to ensure my clients privacy.

Hope you enjoy looking at my images pop me some feedback on my Facebook page thanks x

Don’t forget if you would like to book a session in my amazing new studio space please contact me well in advance, especially for newborn shoots it is best to contact me whilst still pregnant to ensure your session.

 

This is the props /viewing room

 

Just a small pile of rubbish then!

This is up the stairs in the Kitchen to store all my rubbish and props I don’t want on show.
