Weddings! How lucky I am to be able to attend so many beautiful weddings – especially here in Central Otago. Talia and Patrick’s was pretty special – Happening just before covid19 Lockdown. It made for a bit of a stressful time beforehand Im sure for Talia and Patrick – as things were changing pretty quickly at that stage and it was hard to know who was able to come and who wasn’t, but thank goodness the day got to go ahead. We started the day with the boys getting fresh cuts at Tu Meke Hair, and had a few laughs as the boys got dressed in the front window of the main street. Not what the Friday shoppers were expecting to see! From there I headed out to the girls who were staying out Golden Road. There was calm and laughter as I arrived to the girls looking amazing, with makeup just finishing and the final touches being done with hair. Talia and Patrick got married at The Orchard Gardens – a well known local venue that never disappoints. We headed for photo’s around Clyde after the ceremony, which again when you are surrounded by great people was great fun with lots of laughs. Thanks Talia and Patrick for having me capture your special wedding day. It was an honour to be a part of – enjoy a glimpse into this special day xx
Pre wedding shoots are something that have become more popular over the last few years. I love doing these sessions and seeing the confidence grow in these beautiful woman. No matter what our age or size we all seem to be insecure about something. These are sessions I think every woman should take the time to do – not just before your wedding day, but just for you – at any stage of your life. Everyone of you are strong and beautiful. Sometimes we need to see ourselves from someone else’s perspective.
Beautiful, simplistic newborn photo’s.
Well as much as we don’t like being shut in our homes in Lockdown – It is giving me a little time to catch up with things that I have let slip. Blogs are one thing that I really just don’t find the time for – and I must say Im not very good at. Happy to post photo’s but Im terrible when it comes to writing. Mind you who needs words when there are such adorable newborn photos to look at. Here is the beautiful Poppy. Enjoy xx
The Portrait Masters Awards and accreditation is an International competition that I have been entering since it started a couple of years back. I wasn’t planning on entering this year as I had been so busy with work and life in general that I hadn’t had the time to commit to this. Although right at the last minute and with a reminder that there was only 2 hours left to enter – it got the better of me and I searched the photos that i still had sitting on my computer and ended up entering 4 images. # in the newborn category and 1 in Boudoir. There were 11,051 entries from all around the world entered this round, and i was pleased to see all of my images were awarded Bronze. These are my winning entries below…….. Enjoy xx
