Announcing the Winner of Baby or Toddler 2018:
Welcome to Baby or Toddler of 2018, the final part of the event that has been running throughout 2017 at the Reclamation Room, Lees Street, Uppermill.
In January 2017, I put out a call for babies and toddlers to come to the Reclamation Room every last Friday of the month. They were photographed and entered into a contest, and the most favoured baby or toddler was crowned as that Month’s winner. It has resulted in 7 winners, of which there is a final poll to find out who wins the ultimate prize of a year’s photography sessions with Jude Gidney Photography ( Quarterly sessions with a choice of images from the sessions worth over £600 to be taken during 2018).
The contest was always run on character of the baby or toddler, and all the babies and toddlers that entered are winners in my book!! I shall be offering all a prize for joining in.
The results of the poll will be announced in 7 days time (12/01/18 – voting closes at 12pm 12/01/18)
Here are the finalists. Please indicate your favourite by clicking the blue ‘send my choice’ button at the very bottom of all the images. You may choose more than one :

Little girls in beautiful tutu dresses, dancing with teddies and galloping on rocking horses always bring a smile to their faces, and an opportunity for lovely memories to be captured.
These dresses are loaned to me by Dawn Houston, a creative dress-maker who stitches wonderful powder puffs of girliness for the little ones, and big ones, to wear. She sells them from The Small Business Emporium in Denton.
Here’s a few from a recent tutu photo session:
Christmas is coming and it seems people are already thinking in that direction.

My work at present is involving not only Maternity and Newborn sessions, but also babies in their first year and older children.

Facebook has been awash with phone images of first day at school. Here’s a few I took of Sam just before his first day back, looking pristine in his new school uniform, proud and very excited to be going.

Thanks to my wonderful brother Richard Grinter, my website and branding has a new look. It’s taken the two of us months to design and perfect the idea, but I’m over the moon with the new look and how it can be used. Please check out the rest of my website to see how it looks.
I’ve been asked quite a few times recently for Bump to Baby Photography Session Packages.
So I’ve put together some for you. It’s fantastic to you when you are expecting, have a girly ‘get to know you’ Maternity Session and then when your baby does eventually arrive, you will get to know me and me you, and the session will run so much more smoothly.
Packages include Maternity shoots to into the first year of your baby’s life, creating pieces of art that you’ll want to show everyone and cherish. Packages include Maternity photo sessions, Newborn baby sessions, 6 month baby sitting sessions, 1 year birthday celebrations with Cake-Smashes (messy) Tea Party Sessions (cute clean fun) and Bubble Bath Sessions, and portraits beyond of them as a Toddler.

I love to meet mums before they give birth, in order for them to get to know how I work and that their newborn baby during their newborn baby photography session will be in safe hands. It’s a quiet and calm time when mum can feel pampered and looking amazing.
If you’d like to have a chat about what it involves or book a session for yourself please just message me or ring on 07759 599134.
Don’t be another one that regrets she didn’t do it.
