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
Little Oliver came to visit from Dunedin at 11 day’s New. He was such a little cutie. Mum – Claire and Dad – Hayden were pretty smitten (and so they should be) Oliver had given them a little cause for concern – but arrived safe and sound. Here is a little selection of photos taken at Oliver’s photoshoot. Dad requested a photo of little Oliver in his boot!! This is the result.
What a delightful little man Nico was. My newborn photography sessions are usually done within the first 2 weeks. This is not always possible and sometimes it is a last minute thing to get photos done. Nico was 8 weeks old when he came to me, so I wasn’t sure if we would get to many “newborn” poses, as by 8 weeks they tend to not be quite so curled up, and are a lot more sensitive to touch. But Nico was a superstar! We got him nice and sleepy and the photos were beautiful. He is such a cute baby! Nice and chubby, with beautiful olive skin and the most amazing long, dark eyelashes. He was a little big to fit into most of my props, but the simplistic photo’s are sometimes the best. I even one a Bronze award at the NZIPP Iris awards with one of Nico’s photos. Enjoy 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.
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!
