Iris Awards 2107Lisa Davidson Photography

Iris Awards 2107

Iris Awards 

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

Baby Kahu

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!

Newborn photos are so rewarding.  I am usually totally exhausted after a newborn session – but I am always left with a smile on my face.  I feel pretty lucky to be doing this as my full time job.  It was such a pleasure to meet little Emily.  Emily was a very treasured little girl that Neil and Renee had patiently waited for.  Renee had ended up on bedrest early awaiting this precious little bundles arrival.  Emily was born back in April – yes my backlog is big – I am finally trying to find some time to get some photos up on my blog.

It has been super busy in the studio lately, and I am very behind in my blogs – but have been trying to get on top of this over the last couple of days.  I have another beautiful session to share with you.  Amber who owns Buff day spa here in Alexandra along with her partner Shane came to visit with their precious little girl Ashlyn.  So cute and so alert for such a little one, but we got the most precious images that Im sure they will treasure forever.  Wouldn’t you just love to have photos of you as a newborn with your parents that show this total love and devotion that is so evident at this special time in ones life.  Here are a few images from our session – Enjoy xx newbornphotos-10 newbornphotos-1 newbornphotos-2 newbornphotos-3 newbornphotos-6 newbornphotos-5 newbornphotos-8 newbornphotos-7 newbornphotos-4 newbornphotos-9 newbornphotos-11 Newborn photography

Maternity Photoshoot - Amber

Maternity sessions are so much fun to capture.  It is such a special time in someones life.  I still remember expecting my first born ( 16 years ago now – but still just feels like yesterday) It is an amazing experience being pregnant – even with the unbearable morning sickness!  Watching your body change and grow- and knowing that this little baby that you have created is growing inside and will soon change your life forever.  I recently had Amber in for a maternity session.  She looked amazing!  I was so excited to get her back to show her the beautiful images we had created.  This was a post that was so lovely to read after Ambers experience with me.

“I just had the most amazing experience with Lisa today ☺️ Lisa you made me feel so incredible comfortable, at ease and truly beautiful (especially when you feel the opposite when pregnant) your gorgeous dresses, beautiful props and studio, I loved every minute of it, can’t wait to see the images I am so looking forward to having our new born shoot with you too thank you so much Lisa ☺️”

.10 days old.

Newborn photography is such a privilege  for me.  I never take for granted how precious these little ones are and how lucky I am to be asked to capture such a special time in peoples lives.

When I get these little babies into the studio they are still so very new –  Mums are still getting to know these little treasures and getting the sleep deprivation and feeding under control, so I am very lucky to be spending this time with them and creating images that are going to be treasured for a lifetime.

This is little Ava Shone.  She came to visit me when she was 10 days old.  Such a relaxed little soul.  I had the pleasure of seeing her again today – 2 weeks since her newborn session, and I couldn’t get over how much she had grown.  Beautiful little chubby cheeks have appeared and she is just so cuddly and cute.  What a fantastic job that I have!

Enjoy xx

Another delightful little newborn arrives into our world xx

You may recognise Annika and Jonny from a beautiful Maternity session that I blogged recently.  Yes they have had their little boy Mason Deane France -(A little while ago actually – I just haven’t had time to sit down and blog)

Mason was born on 17th August weighing a healthy 8lb 12oz  Parents Annika and Jonny were so extremely proud and in love with their little man when they arrived for their newborn photography session with me – and so they should be – he is just adorable.  It is such a special time to share with new parents and I am always so grateful that these clients trust me with their precious little babies.  It is a time when parents are still getting to know these beautiful little beings that have just arrived into their lives – usually not letting them have much time for sleeping – but they arrive on my doorstep happy for me to capture these special moments and connections that pass us by so quickly.  I find the older the child gets – the more treasured and precious these images become to families.  This stage goes by in such a blur – and it is hard to believe as they become teenagers and start to overtake us in height – that they once occupied a space in our womb – or fitted into Dads hands quite easily!

 

Welcome little Mason XXnewborn photography newborn-photography-002 newborn-photography-003 newborn-photography-004 newborn-photography-006 newborn-photography-009newborn-photography-010 newborn-photography-011 newborn-photography-013 newborn-photography-014 newborn-photography-015 newborn-photography-016 newborn-photography-017 newborn-photography-018 newborn-photography-019 newborn-photography-020 newborn-photography-021 newborn-photography-022

Ella - Newborn Photography

Ella came to visit me on Duck shooting weekend with her Mum Stacey.  What better thing to be doing while the men are all out duck shooting.  Ella arrived wrapped in a camouflage blanket with Mum wearing matching top – both in the spirit of the big duck shooting weekend.  When I first laid eyes on Ella I thought to myself this baby is older than 2 weeks (as my newborn sessions I try to do within the first 2 weeks of baby’s life) After chatting to Stacey I soon found out that Ella was only 2 weeks old, but had been born weighing over 10 pound!

Ella was just a delight, and I have been lucky enough to have cuddles with Ella on a couple of different occasions when they have come back to visit and order from their session.

Harper – What a little treasure!  I finally got to meet  Harper a little later than origonally planned.  Harper had decided to give her parents Willy and Olivia a bit of a scare on their drive into town on our first scheduled photo session, and ended up being diverted and spending a couple of days in hospital.  Back on track and eager to get some precious photos of their dear little baby – another session was scheduled, and I got the pleasure of meeting this little princess!   

I hadn’t meet Olivia or Willy before – they are such a neat couple and so excited to have this little girl in their lives.  It is such an amazing feeling becoming parents.  Nothing ever really prepares you for the moment you meet this little person for the first time.  That unconditional love that is just so instant and so strong!  It is such a privillege to be invited into peoples lives at such special times as these to capture precious images of times that will be forever cherished.  These little babies will only fit in Dads hands like this for such a short time.  Precious moments. Precious memories captured and treasured. newborn-photos-001 newborn-photos-002 newborn-photos-003 newborn-photos-004 newborn-photos-005 newborn-photos-006 newborn-photos-007 newborn-photos-008 newborn-photos-009 newborn-photos-010 newborn-photos-011 newborn-photos-012 newborn-photos-013 newborn-photos-014 newborn-photos-015 newborn-photos-016 newborn-photos-017 newborn-photos-018
