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

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.

Newborn photoshoot - Ashlyn

It has been super busy in the studio lately, and I am very behind in my blogs – but have been trying to get on top of this over the last couple of days.  I have another beautiful session to share with you.  Amber who owns Buff day spa here in Alexandra along with her partner Shane came to visit with their precious little girl Ashlyn.  So cute and so alert for such a little one, but we got the most precious images that Im sure they will treasure forever.  Wouldn’t you just love to have photos of you as a newborn with your parents that show this total love and devotion that is so evident at this special time in ones life.  Here are a few images from our session – Enjoy xx newbornphotos-10 newbornphotos-1 newbornphotos-2 newbornphotos-3 newbornphotos-6 newbornphotos-5 newbornphotos-8 newbornphotos-7 newbornphotos-4 newbornphotos-9 newbornphotos-11 Newborn photography

Look at this beautiful little girl – Layla.  I loved being able to do Layla’s newborn photos for her family.  One of my images of little Layla managed to get me a Silver award recently at the NZIPP Iris awards, which are New Zealand’s only professional  Photography awards – so that was pretty exciting.  Here are a few images from Layla’s photoshoot.  Enjoy xx

I was thrilled to be able to photograph little Orla and her proud parents Jason and Chris.  Orla was a bright little button, and even at 5 days old she was more interested in being social and staying awake than drifting off into that deep newborn sleep!!  She was super cute and very relaxed so we managed to get some pretty cool pictures.  Enjoy xxnewborn-photography-orla-23 newborn-photography-orla-21newborn-photography-orla-22 newborn-photography-orla-20 newborn-photography-orla-18newborn-photography-orla-19 newborn-photography-orla-17 newborn-photography-orla-16newborn-photography-orla-13newborn-photography-orla-15 newborn-photography-orla-12 newborn-photography-orla-11 newborn-photography-orla-8newborn-photography-orla-10 newborn-photography-orla-7

.10 days old.

Newborn photography is such a privilege  for me.  I never take for granted how precious these little ones are and how lucky I am to be asked to capture such a special time in peoples lives.

When I get these little babies into the studio they are still so very new –  Mums are still getting to know these little treasures and getting the sleep deprivation and feeding under control, so I am very lucky to be spending this time with them and creating images that are going to be treasured for a lifetime.

This is little Ava Shone.  She came to visit me when she was 10 days old.  Such a relaxed little soul.  I had the pleasure of seeing her again today – 2 weeks since her newborn session, and I couldn’t get over how much she had grown.  Beautiful little chubby cheeks have appeared and she is just so cuddly and cute.  What a fantastic job that I have!

Enjoy xx

Another delightful little newborn arrives into our world xx

You may recognise Annika and Jonny from a beautiful Maternity session that I blogged recently.  Yes they have had their little boy Mason Deane France -(A little while ago actually – I just haven’t had time to sit down and blog)

Mason was born on 17th August weighing a healthy 8lb 12oz  Parents Annika and Jonny were so extremely proud and in love with their little man when they arrived for their newborn photography session with me – and so they should be – he is just adorable.  It is such a special time to share with new parents and I am always so grateful that these clients trust me with their precious little babies.  It is a time when parents are still getting to know these beautiful little beings that have just arrived into their lives – usually not letting them have much time for sleeping – but they arrive on my doorstep happy for me to capture these special moments and connections that pass us by so quickly.  I find the older the child gets – the more treasured and precious these images become to families.  This stage goes by in such a blur – and it is hard to believe as they become teenagers and start to overtake us in height – that they once occupied a space in our womb – or fitted into Dads hands quite easily!

Lizzie & Matt - Maternity Photo shoot

Lizzie’s Maternity shoot.

There is nothing quite like the experience of your first pregnancy.  I still remember the excitement and also that nervous feeling of not really knowing what you are in for –  But after 9 months it is just so exciting the thought of getting to meet this little one for the first time!  Lizzie and Matt have just been through that experience.  I was so excited when lizzie asked me to do her maternity shoot.  She looked stunning!  (Matt you were looking pretty good to!!)  Matt and Lizzie welcomed little Matilda Jamie-Rose into the world on the 25th of June – and she is just beautiful.  I had her in for photos this week and I look forward to sharing them soon to – but in the meantime here is  the beautiful Lizzie  and her beautiful baby bump xx#maternityphotography-001 #maternityphotography-002 #maternityphotography-003 #maternityphotography-004 #maternityphotography-005 #maternityphotography-006 #maternityphotography-007 #maternityphotography-008 #maternityphotography-009 #maternityphotography-010 #maternityphotography-011 #maternityphotography-012 #maternityphotography-013 #maternityphotography-014 #maternityphotography-015 #maternityphotography-016 #maternityphotography-017 #maternityphotography-018
