Well the dust has just about settled and we’ve rolled away the red carpet after enjoying our second ever Miss and Master Awards Ceremony and contest. Since the start of the year, little ones have been coming to us for Miss and Master portraits in our gorgeous vintage suitcase and in March we opened up our online galleries for public voting. We’ve had so many gorgeous entrants and once again we’ve been absolutely blown away by the response, votes have rolled in from all around the world; Australia, America even Russia, and all across the UK!
After seven days of public scrutiny we tallied up who the four entrants from each category with the most votes were. And we invited them to the awards party and into another round of voting. All through the week the leaders kept changing as the votes crept up – we must have some very popular parents amongst our clients!
Then it was time for the long awaited awards party itself. A sensory delight for little ones (and tea and cake for the big ones). We welcomed our families with a complementary portrait in on of our prized crowns and then Jo Jingles took over for a fun filled hour of songs and music.
And then it was time to announce our winners (Mummy’s names incase you are wondering):
Best Newcomer – Katie Hodgson
Best Giggler – Stacey Fairfax
Best Mover and Grover – Joanne Zahler
Miss 2016 – Emma Lay
Master 2016 – Rosie Harrison
As well as their lovely title, our Miss and Master 2016 have won an annual portrait package with us including three portrait sessions and a gorgeous big nine aperture frame which we will create for them at the end of the year.
It has been a wonderful few weeks and we are thrilled that so many families wanted to take part. Thank you!
