Congratulations to Style Photography who have achieved their fifth winning image of 2019!
Their entry of baby Evelyn wowed our Mum and Sponsor judging panels and as a winner she can look forward to receiving a £100 Boots voucher and also has the chance to win £5000 in the 2019 Baby of the Year competition.
Photographers Doug Brown and Sheila Mann have achieved almost 30 Winning or Top-10 Finalist images since our competition started in 2015, and have achieved winning images in the 2015 and 2017 Baby of the Year competitions. They have been photographing professionally for over 20 years, bringing past artistic experience to the business – Doug had previously worked in graphic design and printing and Sheila as a florist and make-up artist.
Initially, purely wedding photographers until about sixteen years ago, Doug and Sheila when they purchased a lovely Victorian house which they converted to a studio enabling them to branch out into portrait photography. Doug comments “The building has an area for a reception, studio, office, make-up room, lounge/gallery for viewing, bedroom and lounge set for boudoir photo-shoots and a framing work room.”
Doug and Sheila have established a successful growing portrait business and receive clients from far and wide from many sources. There have been a number of successes with awards including UK Family Portrait Photographer of the Year, Kodak Portrait Photographer of the Year, SE Master Fashion Photographer of the Year.
Sheila says, “We love the diverse range of photography from clients who come into the studio wanting types of images including maternity, newborn, babies, children, families, makeover, boudoir, couples and weddings. The studio is well located in Herne Bay, which is a very popular seafront for day-trippers and has a wide choice of restaurants, cafés and shops.”
There is two-hour parking opposite the studio or Council Car Parks within a two-minute walk. Nearby is Whitstable and Canterbury, so there is plenty to do for families to do in the area after a photographic session where Doug and Sheila will make you very welcome!
Honestly the best experience! The photoshoot, selecting images and collecting has all been one to remember. We have a 36”x 36” block of Stanley and it’s to die for along with other images. Every single photo will be treasured forever. The friendly approach from both Doug & Sheila has been amazing and first class!
Thank you for an amazing experience – Hollie, Sam & Stanley xx
