Being the eclectic photographer that I am …. this week I was off to Derbyshire …wow…love that place! The scenery is just breathtaking. I was commissioned to photograph Charlotte with her super young horse Rupert and while I was thereI I snapped a few shots of their two gorgeous Boxer dogs… ..Charlottes first pony Sparkle and Fairy the miniature Shetland…All the pets were so well behaved. The Weather was lovely apart form the wind! It makes such a lovely change to be outdoors and not stuck in the studio here in Leicester for a change!

Jules Photography …. Leicester’s Award Winning Photographer.
This month I had the honour of being the chosen photographer for a “Calendar Girls” style shoot to raise money for The Down’s Syndrome Association with the amazing midwives at Miracle In Progress 3d/4d scanning clinic in Shepshed Leicester. After initial discussions over a christmas meal we were thinking maybe just a simple fine art shoot at my Leicester Studio here in Kirkby Mallory, with just a couple of pictures…Jo who owns Miracle in Progress was keen to get the ball rolling and after a couple of days the simple shoot had progressed into a full calendar! … so with little time to lose I got my head down and sketched out a few ideas for various images and the date was set and props were ordered! When Mums Julia & Hannah were told of our idea they were only too happy to bring Eliza & Jorga along to be our leading little ladies! From the moment Eliza & Jorga entered the studio they filled our hearts with joy… they were both absolute little angels. we all LOVE working with babies so were all in our element.
Every image that I had planned worked perfectly I couldn’t have asked for more from the babies and the midwives, then when one of the girls backed out at the last minute Julia & Hannah stepped in and saved the day..I have to say the portraits of the Mums and babies are my favourite images from the shoot. The images were then edited super quickly that night as the Daily papers wanted them forwarding to promote the Down’s syndrome Awareness Day which was the 21st March
Please help us raise as much as we can you can purchase our lovely A3 Calendar for just £9.99 here

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.

My first Fine Art Family portrait Session for 2016!
I first met Faye & Kyle last year for their Newborn session with gorgeous baby Kayden…absolutely loved their shoot so when Faye contacted me over Christmas to see if I could fit her Family in for a shoot..the answer was of course …absolutely! Faye’s brother Ian was over on a surprise rare visit from Sydney Australia and to have the opportunity to capture this gorgeous family all together was an honour!
