Lisa Davidson Photography-Portrait Masters

The portrait Masters 2018

This year has had many first’s for me.  It has been an amazing year, and one of the most memorable and exciting times was meeting my biggest mentor and most amazing photographer and educator – Sue Bryce – I was lucky enough to spend 2 days with her and a group of amazing photographers from around the world.  This pushed me outside my comfort zone – especially photographing while Sue was watching!! – talk about feeling the pressure – but really I couldn’t have been put more at ease and feel in love with what i do even more.

Then the entries opened for The portrait Masters – which is a world wide Awards and Accreditation program.  This year had the most amazing panel of International Judges!  So I decided to put my work out there and be judged!  The Portrait Masters Conference hosted by Sue Bryce which ran for 3 days in Phoenix, Arizona was were the winners were announced live.  I was sitting at home watching a live feed at my computer when the Newborn Category came on – and I couldn’t believe it when my image came up in the Top 10 images.  With 7000 entries in this competition I was so blown away. Unfortunately I must not have filled things in properly and Instead of Lisa Davidson Photography being announced and seen by thousands it just has my name as Lisa….. Lesson learnt (make sure you fill everything in well.  Anyway not only was I in the top 10 Newborn Photographers I received 1 silver and 8 Bronze awards.  So it pays to put yourself out there every now and again, get over the fear, and do it anyway – as this time it was so worth it.  Here are my images that I entered – each one winning an award.

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

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

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.

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 ☺️”
