Meet The Gladstone Family

All the way from Edinburgh Lindsey and Bruce travelled to our little village in Kirkby Mallory Leicester for two days of family portraits with award winning Fine Art Portrait Photographer Jules

“This absolutely gorgeous family completely stole my heart, they were amazing! After 9hrs of traveling and an overnight stay in our village B&B they arrived at the studio bright eyed and bushy tailed..literally for Alexander, 19mths & Alistair 3yrs, who both had cute Peter Rabbit outfits to show off! 10 year old Morar and his two sisters Amelia (8) and Anna (5) were absolute stars and we had such a good time capturing timeless fine art images of them all. The girls loved all the dressing up of course but Morar who is quite shy really enjoyed his sessions and said he wants to come back next year!”

Here are just a handful of the beautiful images we captured over the 2 days

Jules achieves “Master Craftsman” title

Master Craftsman Qualification for Julie Moult  based in Kirkby Mallory, Leicester, Family Portrait Photographer at Jules Photography & Little Creases Newborn Photography

This last year, as many of my clients will be aware,  I have been working on a collection of images to present to The Guild Of Photographers for assessment for my Craftsman Qualification.

I am absolutely thrilled to announce that finally last week my completed panel of images were judged by the Guilds team of International judges and I was actually awarded the “Master Craftsman” Qualification. This award means so much to me for many reasons but possibly the most important reason is that I know I am giving a truly Professional Quality Service and Product to my clients and Master Craftsman is a title I intend to live up to for the rest of my photographic career.

Throughout my photographic Journey I have participated In many training days with various Photographers in particular Damien Lovegrove  who I found extremely helpful and inspiring and I have always come away with new techniques that I have been able to apply to my own work. I think its very important to develop your own style and take inspiration from others to improve your own work and training is invaluable.

Learning to see images as a collection that represents your personal style is not always easy and my Guild Mentor Julie Oswin, a wonderfully talented acclaimed photographer, has played a huge role in helping me put these images together, and I am truly indebted to her for guiding me and encouraging me. She is a wonderful person and a fantastic trainer within the business of photography.

I would like to thank all of my clients, even if your imagesare not in this panel, you have all had an input and been extremely inspirational to me.

and finally thank you to The Guild for being such a nurturing organisation I love being a member of such a warm and friendly group of Photographers from all walks of life

Here is my final panel….

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.

You can find out more about this award and the Guild of Photographers at their website (www.photoguild.co.uk) and more about Julie at her website www.littlecreases.com

If you have any further questions please either contact Lesley at the Guild (lesley@photoguild.co.uk) or Julie at info@littlecreases.com

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 Willow

a

 

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 Portrait Session with Maisie

bay, portrait, leicester baby photographer,

 

Little Maisie came all the way from Nottingham to see me today, I usually photograph her for her Model Agency photographs but how lovely it was to photograph her in my portrait studio. Baby portrait sessions

last for about an hour and capture your baby at his/her best, lots of great expressions and cheekiness, images you will treasure. Mum and dad can have some taken too!

Do get in touch if you would like something like these for your home you can email me on info@littlecreases.com or call on 07515382865

As usual Maisie was full of smiles and personality, she is always such a pleasure to photograph. We had a great time and I think you’ll agree she is adorable!

Child modelling may not be for everyone but it can be very rewarding and can really help babies and children with their confidence,  if you do want to venture into the wonderful world of modelling with your baby, choose a reputable Model Agency. With the right Agency it can be a lot of fun, you will need to be a dedicated parent, lots of casting calls that can be all over the country, these are unpaid and there is no guarantee you will be successful… but if and when your baby is chosen you get to experience what goes on in the world of advertising, baby gets to meet lots of doting people who are kind and will really enjoy the sessions when a baby or child is involved! You’ll maybe get some great pictures, although not until the images are used by the company but you do get paid!!

If you would like more in formation on modelling for your baby visit PK Model Agency & School they have a become a model section and you can always give them a call, they personally cast all their new models so you’ll get to meet the owners of the agency before you join..

 

 

5 Bronze awards for Leicester Newborn Baby photographer with The Guild of Professional Photographers

Leicester Newborn, Baby, Child and Family Portrait Photographer Leicester

I am so thrilled to receive 5 Bronze awards this month!

In September lat year I decided to join the  Guild of Photographers and in December 2014 was awarded Image of the year 2015 out of over 10,000 entries for a Pet portrait of 3 Tibetan Terriers. I am also a qualified member of the SWPP and have won many Gold Awards with the Society over the years. Since joining the Guild of Professional Photographers last September 2014 I have been awarded a total of 1 Gold 2 Silver and 12 Bronze awards for my work as a Portrait Photographer  which includes Maternity, Children, Babies, Newborns and Pets (including Horses!) I absolutely LOVE being a photographer and I am always aiming to improve my craft so you can be assured I will always give you my best at every session. This month I received 5 Bronze Awards, 2 for my Newborn work, 2 for my Pets and 1 for my Child Portrait. These awards are not easily achieved and 2015 has brought in a new award structure with the Guild so the judging is even tighter! I am a very proud member of Both the SWPP & the Guild and I aim to produce many more award winning images this year…this is my commitment to my work and to you my client.

I thought it might be nice to show you all of my award winning images for you to see even the pet ones..now you can see a bit of all that I do…So whilst I am a Newborn and Baby Photographer I am primarily a Portrait Photographer and I Love every aspect of what I do. x
