Sarah Tate, based in Hailsham Road, Heathﬁeld, has proved she is one of the best in her ﬁeld as she has beaten off stiff competition of 500 other countrywide photographers to grab the ﬁrst prize in the Bump 2 Baby Group Photographer of the Year competition.
The arresting pregnancy and child photograph which won was of another local resident, Emma Ansell, and her daughter Hannah. Emma won £500 for her part in the amazing shot and taking the family away on holiday with the prize money.
Sarah loves the thrill of taking photographs of babies and children. She said: “It’s a major achievement to be recognised for my style. I have enjoyed every minute of photographing pregnant mums and newborn babies for many years. It is lovely that Emma and Hannah are winners, too.”
Charlie Kaufman, from sponsors the Click Group, said: “Her winning image of a pregnant mum and daughter radiated warmth and love and captured a very special moment in their lives.”
