I got a bit of a surprise in the post today. From time to time I take part in competitions that the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers organises and, as it turns out, last month my picture of the family Hootons’ feet won a gold award in the ‘Family and Group Portraiture’ category. What do you know. I had no idea I would be receiving a fancy certificate for it as well, how very posh! :D Must apologise for the poor picture quality, I just snapped it quickly with my phone.
Literally right after opening the envelope the doorbell rang, and it was Sarah with baby Lucinda coming to pick up the hi-res disc from their shoot. While I was cooing over how much Lucinda had grown since our shoot, and showing her how her feet were award winning, I heard the front door close behind me. Yes indeed. There I was, locked outside, sans shoes or a phone or anything. Not my finest moment! After a few minutes of panic, I realised the security lock wasn’t on (note to any would-be burglars, it usually is!) as I’d only stepped outside temporarily, and with the help of Sarah’s slender hands we managed to break me back into the house. What are clients for eh! :D I blame the whole incident on Lucinda and her distracting cuteness. She also seemed suspiciously amused by the whole thing I must say!
And here are the award-winning feet.
