Jules is awarded Photographers Bar in 3 Categories with The Guild

Local photographer achieves national acclaim!

Local photographer Julie Moult has been granted membership of the ‘Photographers Bar’ and was the only person in the UK to do so in 3 different photographic areas.

Membership of the ‘Photographers Bar’ is a unique distinction awarded to those photographers who have successfully had images assessed by the Guild of Photographers over the course of a year and have attained a score that evidences an exceptional level of professional skill and consistency throughout that a full year.

The Guild of Photographers is a highly respected association for all photographers and it’s competition attracts up to 1000 images for judging by an an expert Panel of Judges each month. Points are given to entries and these are then totaled at the end of the year. Those who reach the required threshold are then awarded membership of the ‘Photographers Bar’.

That membership of the ‘Photographers Bar’ is a distinction that is very difficult to achieve – in fact less than 100 photographers have achieved it in the 3 years since its inception, during which time over 30,000 images will have been entered for assessment by photographers across the UK and from overseas.

Guild Director Lesley Thirsk said “I am delighted for Julie as this is a great achievement! Submitting and having images assessed every month for a year and reaching the required standards to become a member of the Photographers Bar is very very demanding. It illustrates her commitment, skill and consistency. She should be very proud of what she has achieved!”

On hearing the news Julie who runs Little Creases leicester Newborn Photography & Jules Photography said …. I am absolutely thrilled to receive these awards…I am always working to improve my skills and produce beautiful images for my clients. Becoming a member of The Guild has enabled me to enter images each month for assessment which provides me with the right environment to grow and keep on track of my progress.

10 images Nominated for National Awards with the Guild Of Photographers

The New Year brought with it 4 Magical emails from the Guild of Photographers I cannot express how honoured I am to have my images nominated for the National Annual Awards again this year and to be considered one amongst some of THE best photographers in the Country!

PRESS RELEASE

Leicester Newborn, Baby, Family & Pet Photographer Jules of Jules Photography & Little Creases achieves National Acclaim!
Jules, a photographer based in Kirkby Mallory, Nr Hinckley Leicester has reached the Final of the fiercely contested Guild of Photographers Image of the Year Competition.

 The Guild is a highly respected UK based association for photographers which has members from overseas as well. Each year it runs an on-line monthly photographic competition with awards being given each month to the very best of the entries.

During the course of 2015, the competition attracted nearly 10,000 entries in 4 categories, and this week the Guild’s Judges have selected just 10 images in the various genres from the very best of the monthly entries, to go forward to the annual Final. Jules‘s has had 10 images Nominated within the 4 Categories of Pet Portraits, Babies & Toddler, Newborn and Maternity

 & children.

Guild Director Lesley Thirsk said “One of the Guild’s aims is to drive standards and creativity amongst photographers. Our monthly competition certainly does that, for the standard of the entries we see each month is quite staggering. To have an image recognised by the Guild in the monthly competition is difficult enough, so to have an image selected as being one of the best 10 in a category for the end of year Final is a quite remarkable achievement, and shows just how talented a photographer Jules is.

”

Jules said “I live for my photography and put a lot of effort into developing my skills. One way I do that is to enter the Guild’s competition. It drives forward photography standards month after month so it helps me push myself. The images I see getting awards each month are inspirational, so knowing just how high those standards are, to have my images selected within the 10 to go through to the Final from the whole year’s entries is really really exciting. I couldn’t believe it when I found out.”

Jules’s image along with the others will now be printed ready for the Competition Final later in January, and the overall winner will be announced at a lavish Awards night in a magnificent Jacobean mansion in Cheshire on 6th February.

Teenie Mylas Newborn Session

There is no better assurance from the parents of their precious newborns that they  have complete trust in you and what you do than when you look up and they are both fast asleep!!!

I totally fell in love with this little girl! Love getting the christmas outfits out in the run up to christmas and then I get to see all the ” babies first christmas” cards.

October is proving a very busy month at Little Creases Leicester Newborn Photography Studio so many new babies!

Beautiful Baby Portrait

 

This beautiful cherub came for her baby portrait session this month and what an absolute pleasure she was to photograph! Minor was so happy and even gave us a sleepy shot right at the end of the session. My bespoke portrait sessions are tailored around the individual nature of your child to get the absolute best from every session. My spacious Leicester based studio in Kirkby Mallory is a great environment to get great shots of your little one and your session is never rushed and always baby led…. I am happy to photograph babies and children of all ages, just drop me an email or complete the booking form at the bottom of the Baby Portrait Sessions page.

Ava came to Little Creases Leicester Baby & Newborn Photography Studio today for her Birthday Cake Smash shoot today

I just cant believe this little one will be 1 yrs old next week! It doesn’t seem 5 minutes since I was meeting her for the very first time at just a few days old for her Newborn Photo shoot she has grown so fast!

Her Mum Claire has just launched a baby clothing business so we photographed a few of the designs for advertising first and then moved on to Ava’s Cake Smash…

She loved it and got straight in …I have to say it did taste pretty yummy!

I will posting more details about the beautiful clothing later in the month.

Beautiful Baby Willow

So many blog posts to do to catch up this month!

Its been a crazy two months here at Little Creases, Leicester Newborn & Baby Photography Studio …I have met so many beautiful new babies and I have finally caught up with editing and viewings I am making a start with this gorgeous family.

Vicky is a busy mum and full time commercial model but we managed to fit Willow in for her Newborn session and although Layton her Big Brother wasn’t feeling well..we grabbed a little snap of them together…bless him he spent most of the session flat out on the sofa.

Willow was oblivious to it all and slept the majority of the time!

Baby Jenson

So many baby boys coming in for their Newborn Photo Shoots this month …  I managed to get a few more cuddles from this gorgeous little man when Mummy & Daddy came back for their viewing this week…cant believe how much he has grown! Baby Jenson was actually awake for most of his session…quite content to look around and take it all in…we got a really good mix of wake and sleepy shots for his family album! My Leicester Newborn Studio is always set so we can easily go from sleepy blanket shots to wide awake curled up in basket shots to get the most out of every session… All my Newborn Photo shoots are baby led and never timed, I set aside the whole day to capture your precious memories, after all you cant get this time back again x
