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 - Ashleigh - Mum 2 Be

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.

WeddingSimon & Rose’s Wedding Day – Cromwell/WanakaLisa Davidson Photography

Simon & Rose's Wedding Day  - Cromwell/Wanaka

Simon & Rose married on the farm at Kidd Gully on a overcast day in March.  Rose and her bridesmaids/bestman were so relaxed on the morning of the wedding, while Simon and his crew were busy running around, picking up chairs that were being blown over and moving the ceremony location slightly into an area out of the wind.  Down in Cromwell we were a little oblivious to the wind as it was not blowing at all where we were.  By the time we arrived at the ceremony the wind had calmed and the boys had everything sorted.  It was a fantastic spot overlooking beautiful scenery. 

The photo’s were all done around the farm.  Time disappeared quickly, and then we headed back to the amazing reception area that they had created under the stars.

The reception area looked amazing.  They had spent so much time creating this amazing setting for friends and family, and they were so lucky with the weather.  Rose had made not one but three beautiful wedding cakes (they all looked amazing).  They arrived to the reception by jet boats to the guest’s surprise.

Thank you so much Rose & Simon for sharing your day with me.  I so enjoyed my time you all, and wish you all much happiness in your future together 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 - Emily -

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.

Larissa & Te Kohe's Wedding

What a Wedding!

The wedding of Larrisa &Te Kohe took place on Larissa’s parents property in Alexandra.  It was such a stunning setting and the day was filled with so much love and emotion.  I found myself so wrapped up in listening to the speeches and wedding vows, I had to remind myself that I was there to do a job and get taking Photos!!    The vows were so heartfelt and emotional, even Larissa’s Mum spoke so emotionally and the words – just so beautiful and full of meaning.  T.K’s son Phoenix was also a special part of the day, and his kind caring nature was so evident as he stroked Larissa and T.k’s back when they got emotional during the wedding vows.The bridal party was a pretty stunning lineup – the girls all looked amazing  – their dresses all different and so beautiful and the boys kept me on the go and very entertained.  We had so much fun.  Thank you Larissa and T.K for trusting me with the job of photographing your wedding day.  It was such a pleasure to meet you both and I wish you all the best with your future life together xx  Hope you enjoy this little preview of your day – and I will get them all on their way to you soon!

Brad & Jeanette’s WeddingCentral Otago wedding

Brad & Jeanette's Wedding

Brad and Jeanette married at The Homestead and Woolshed on Racecourse in April this year.  The day started of with a covering of fog but came out beautiful!  It was an early start to the day as we did the  photography with the wedding party before the wedding.  We were pretty spoilt for choice with locations out in Omakau.  Time seemed to slip away pretty quickly as we were having fun and getting some great photos – but got them back in time for the beautiful ceremony at the Homestead.  Jeanette had done the most amazing job with all the decorations at the reception.  I walked in and was blown away with how beautiful it was.  So much time had been spent on beautiful details.  Here is a look at their day xx
