Mandy & Ted’s Wedding Day

 

Mandy and Ted decided to get married in Moeraki as they spend a lot of time in Hamden at their  holiday home and just love the place.  This was 3rd time lucky for Mandy and Ted who had tried on several occasions to tie the knott but with one thing or the other getting in the way it hadn’t eventuated.  We arrived at Moeraki on the Thursday for the rehearsal to an almighty gale and freezing temperatures.  I was pleasantly surprised to wake the next morning to the sun shining and the birds chirping.  It was an early start as Ted and Mandy had decided to get their wedding party photos done before the ceremony.  We had a fun morning – spending time at the beach, and then onto Oamaru before getting back for the ceremony just along from the Moeraki Boulders Cafe.  We managed to get most of the way through the ceremony before getting a little sprinkling from above.  The reception was held at the Moeraki Boulders Cafe – which has the most beautiful outlook.  Thanks for sharing your special day with me Mandy and Ted, it was an absolute pleasure and I wish you a lifetime of happiness xx

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.

Baby Nico

 

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

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.

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!
