MEET 16 month old Enya Parkinson from Bretforton who was the first baby to be photographed in this year’s Observer Baby Photo Competition.

Experienced professional portrait photographer Andrea Powell started snapping at the Riverside Shopping Centre on Monday (June 8) and will be there every day (except Sunday) until Wednesday, June 17.

Simply take your baby or toddler – up to the age of 36 months – along to her from 9.30am to 4.30pm on any of those days. No appointment is necessary.

Prizes will be awarded in two categories 0 to 17 months, and 18 to 36 months.

First prize in each category is an enormous 24in x 20in framed canvas wall portrait of your child (worth at least £200).

After all the photographs have been taken and selected, the Observer will shortlist entries in each age group.
