Newborn Photography is such a passion for me. I still get excited with each and every session. I LOVE babies – just incase you couldn’t tell – But this was an extra special Newborn Photography session for me, as it was my cousin’s little girl. Meet little Anika and her precious family – Manu, Koren and big brother Tane. Thank’s for coming through from Dunedin for your photo shoot. It was such a pleasure to photograph your beautiful little family xx Annika – fitting snuggly in Dad’s hands. xx
The annual Epson/NZIPP Iris Professional Photography Awards is New Zealand’s only professional photography competition. The aim of these print awards is to recognise and honour the best in contemporary photography from New Zealand and overseas professionals.
I find the Iris awards are a great way to push you outside your comfort zone and put you in front of other Professional Photographers to see how your doing. This year was so busy leading up to Iris I actually didn’t get a chance to do anything special just for Iris – but at the last minute went through my recent work and submitted some photos that I loved. I was pretty happy to come away with 3 Bronze awards. Here are my winning images. Thanks to all my clients that trust in me to document such special times in their lives. xx
Maternity session with Ashleigh.
It is always such an exciting time – the start of a new little family. Ashleigh moved home from Australia recently and it was such a pleasure to spend some time with her and photograph this special time in her life. Such exciting times ahead, and I cant wait to meet her little boy that is due to arrive any time.
Simon & Rose married on the farm at Kidd Gully on a overcast day in March. Rose and her bridesmaids/bestman were so relaxed on the morning of the wedding, while Simon and his crew were busy running around, picking up chairs that were being blown over and moving the ceremony location slightly into an area out of the wind. Down in Cromwell we were a little oblivious to the wind as it was not blowing at all where we were. By the time we arrived at the ceremony the wind had calmed and the boys had everything sorted. It was a fantastic spot overlooking beautiful scenery.
The photo’s were all done around the farm. Time disappeared quickly, and then we headed back to the amazing reception area that they had created under the stars.
The reception area looked amazing. They had spent so much time creating this amazing setting for friends and family, and they were so lucky with the weather. Rose had made not one but three beautiful wedding cakes (they all looked amazing). They arrived to the reception by jet boats to the guest’s surprise.
Thank you so much Rose & Simon for sharing your day with me. I so enjoyed my time you all, and wish you all much happiness in your future together xx
Thanks to all involved:
Makeup – Radiance Skin & Day Spa
Hair – Rochelle Weir
Celebrant – Penny Davison
Location – Kidd Gully Farm
Little baby Kahu traveled from Ranfurly with his parents to have his newborn photos done with me. I find it pretty special when families travel to have their photos done with me. It is a huge privilege to be trusted to photograph these precious little babies, and usually this is the first outing form new Mum’s with their little ones – so it is pretty awesome. Here are some of the precious images I captured from Kahu’s session. Enjoyxx
Precious Family photos to treasure
Look how little Kahu looks in Dads arms. So much love right here!
