So it seems amazing that here we are at the end of yet another year. For some 2016 has been a bad year and we have lost a lot of amazing famous faces this year which is immensely sad, but with New Year’s Eve comes a time for reflection and a time of hope for the year ahead.
For Libby Edwards Photography 2016 has been another very busy year. I have been honored to photograph so many newborn babies – capturing how tiny they are when they are so new to the world. I have been thrilled to see some of my previous newborns come back this year for another photoshoot and have loved seeing how they have grown and changed into the little people they now are. I have also been delighted to welcome back previous clients when they have a new addition to their family, and loved being able to capture those precious memories for them again.
On a professional level 2016 has seen my work continue to develop (no pun intended) and improve. In February I was thrilled to achieve Pro-level status with the Baby & Newborn Photographers Association – you can see my panel of images here. I have also won a number of photography association awards for my work over the year which you can see here. I have continued my own photography education through attending a workshop with Kelly Brown of Little Pieces Photography and then paid my knowledge forward through training another photographer in safe handling and posing – you can read about both here.
On a personal note 2017 is set to be my most exciting year yet as I prepare to welcome my own bundle of joy into the world in Spring. I have long wanted to have a family of my own and to have that dream finally coming true is amazing. I will still be working part time next year but will obviously be taking a couple of months out in the lead up to and soon after baby’s arrival. So next year I am looking forward to lots of baby cuddles not only with my tiny clients but also with my own little one.
Whatever next year has in store for you I wish you health and happiness for 2017, and I look forward to meeting lots of new little faces next year.
