First Baby of the Month Win in 2019 for Barrett & Coe Essex
Congratulations to photographer Jack Bentley of Barrett & Coe Essex who has achieved his first Baby of the Month winning image!
Jack’s entry of baby Leo in June 2019’s competition was very popular with each of our judging panels and Leo can look forward to receiving a £100 Mothercare voucher and will be part of the 2019 Baby of the Year competition, where he could win £5000!
We caught up with Jack to find out more:
“I joined Barrett & Coe Essex almost a year ago after graduating from university. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far, and it has provided me with more experience than I could have ever asked for. Portrait photography has always been a hobby of mine, ever since I was 11 or 12, so being paid for it is like a dream come true!
I cannot thank Barrett & Coe Essex enough for the opportunity they have given me. I’m over the moon that my image of baby Leo was chosen as the winner for the Baby of the Month July competition, I can’t wait to present the Leo’s family with their prizes!”
Since being established by owner Peter Evans in 2005 the studio has grown to be Essex’s premier portrait studio, welcoming families, babies and even pets!
The team also includes Photographer/Studio Manager Anne Wills, (who has achieved several Baby of the Month winning images) Megan, who looks after Social Media and apprentice Little Jack who is just beginning a career in photography.
Modern and comfortable, the studio is situated in converted barns in the small village of Coggeshall, just off the main road between Colchester and Braintree. The village boasts some lovely antique shops, cafés, and a garden centre close by and with Colchester Zoo not far away, it makes a lovely day out, particularly if whole families are there for a photo experience.
