First Winning Image of 2019 for Photographer Stephen Hands
Photographer Stephen Hands of Barrett & Coe Romford has achieved a winning entry in the February 2019 Baby of the Month competition!
His image baby Harper proved popular with our Mum and Sponsor judges, and as a winner Harper can look forward to receiving a £100 Mothercare voucher, plus the chance to win £5000 in the 2019 Baby of the Year competition.
After spending 37 years working in the City as a broker, Stephen decided to hang up the phone and pick up the camera. Photography had always been his passion from an early age and Stephen decided to branch out as a full-time photographer with Barrett & Coe, the experienced and respected group of portrait photographers.
Stephen says “My life has changed completely. Working on Saturdays is a first for me, but it comes with the satisfaction of running your own business. One of the best things about it is meeting new families and creating images that they love. To see the reaction from clients when they see my work is priceless and makes all the hard work worthwhile!”
The studio is based on an industrial park, situated on the ground floor which is a help to mums with prams and any person with disabilities, as they can easily get into the studio. It is only 10 mins drive from Upminster town centre which has a large selection of family friendly coffee shops and restaurants. There are local attractions including Old MacDonalds Farm, Brentwood. The studio is easy to access from the A127 and B186. Buses stop outside the main entrance to the estate and it is 10 mins from Upminster Overground and District Line services. Lastly, the area has some fine country pubs to visit after the shoot to complete the family experience!
