MEET 10 month old Louis Smith from North Littleton who was the first baby to be photographed in this year’s Observer Baby Photo Competition.
Experienced professional portrait photographer Andrea Powell stopped snapping on Wednesday (June 18) after nine days taking pictures of little treasures from across Evesham and Pershore.
Once again, parents packed into the Riverside Shopping Centre for the popular competition with more than 150 pictures taken.
Judges will now select the 20 babies and toddlers for each of the 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).
We will publish those shortlisted, all in full colour, and readers will be able to vote for the winners.
Keep an eye on the Observer for the first shortlist in early July.
