Troy & Camyce came back to Central Otago to get married in February. They chose to do a “First Look” at the Shaky Bridge in Alexandra – as this was where Troy had proposed and so was a special place for them both. We then headed out for some photo’s where the weather wasn’t really being very kind. The winds were so strong it wasn’t ideal . Luckily by the time we arrived at The Packing shed for the ceremony the winds had calmed and everything went of smoothly. Thanks for having me to share in your day. Here is a little peek into Troy and Camyce’s wedding day…….
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
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.
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.
