Elena Gil

I'm Elena, and I live in Mijas, Spain. I love photography since I was a child and share my mommy life with my passion for capturing children's portraits.
Any place is magical to capture the essence and personality of the children in this photo I turned the daily bathroom into a game to make bubbles and thus be able to take the photograph that I had in my mind.

Third Place:

Claudia Marzo

Hi everyone!
My name is Claudia and I'm from Zaragoza, Spain.
I'm 24 years old and I have been working as a child photographer for 6 years now.
I love working with little kids under the age of 6, I feel they are more natural, I work outdoors so I love to let them do whatever they want and take pictures of them just exploring and playing, I love when they forget about me and my camera and just have fun.
I took this picture a few months ago, next to this field was a field full of almond blossom, it was so dreamy, I took a lot of pictures there and at the sunset we went to this wheat field, there were a few white flowers, but not too much, so I asked her to pick a flower and that's how this photo was created.

Magical Childhood Photography Awards - April 2021

Photo of April 2021 belongs to:

Lea Livingstone    

When I shot this photo I had literally just moved to the Highlands in Scotland and it started snowing. After all the stress of moving 5hours away from my home town.
This photo represents how I was feeling at the time.
Breathe
To Pause
To make Space
To collect your thoughts
To remember
To face the next moment
To choose.
I could just breathe.
My handsome son was a perfect model for this. And my new Fox bonnet arrived it just had to be used!
Although now he is getting sick of his Mama taking his photo
If you would like to see more of my work I have added my social media links.

Magical Childhood Photography Awards - March 2021

Photo of March 2021 belongs to:

Miriam N Vera  

Hello everyone, and greetings from Argentina! My name is Miriam and I am a teacher. When I became a mother I became a photography lover, too. My daughter had two wishes; to have a sibling as well as a cat. And guess what? Some time ago, I gave her the latter. She got so happy and filled with tenderness that I wanted to capture them together in a photo which would represent all the love and affection she has for the little kitten. So, with this black and white picture my intention was to capture a spontaneous moment reflecting her feelings. Feel free to visit my IG for more photos! Photography is a great passion of mine, and so I am certainly always trying to improve. The journey continues! Thank you all so much for your time. Best regards.

About the competition

I started the group of Magical Childhood Photography Awards on facebook In March 2021. The idea was born after I fell in love with the world of children’s art photography. It is a group dedicated to photographers who want to share their photos devoted to their childhood. It is important to encourage photographers to be creative and to save the best childhood moments and memories.

I wanted to connect people who want to take part in a photo competition, to check and verify your skills and ideas while learning how people react to these photos. When I was new to the photography business, I was either criticized for my work or ignored. As a result, I created a place where the photos of not only professional photographers are accepted, but also those still studying at an intermediate level.

The group also has an instagram account, where we promote Your work. It is also a place where are photos which were nominated to the second stage of the competition.

Claudia Marzo

Claudia Marzo is a Spanish photographer from Zaragoza. She is a self-taught photographer that started her journey as a children photographer 6 years ago, but she has always loved to take photos of her family and friends when she was just a child. When she finished high school she wanted to study photography so she wanted to join a photography school but sadly it closed and she couldn’t start her studies. Instead of giving up and studying something else that would not make her happy she started to rehearse by herself and after years of practice she got to find her own style. She is an award winning photographer and her work was published on International Kid Model Magazine a few times, the issue 100 as cover, back cover and "meet the photographer". She is specialized in children and family photography and always works outdoor with natural light, she loves the sunlight and the warm sunset colors, she believes they create the perfect scenes to portray the little ones. One of the things that characterizes her is her edit style, she uses warm and saturated colors trying to transform everyday scenes into images that convey the innocence, naturalness and spontaneity of children.
