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.
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 ☺️”
WOW – What a beautiful Mum to Be!
Annika Henderson – fun , bubbly, talkative, beautiful, but most of all excited to meet this little man that she has been carrying around for 38 weeks.
It was such fun to capture these photos of Annika and her partner Jonny. Annika just looked beautiful -(Jonny you scrubbed up pretty good to!!) There is not to much more to say – I think I will let the photos speak for themselves.
