The winner is…

2,600 odd votes later and we have a winner for the complete portraiture experience with me! It was a close race to the end but number 20 came out on top. A big congratulations Shella – I will be in touch shortly.

I had such a great time during the whole competition process – far more fun than I could have imagined. It was so lovely to receive all the beautiful photos in my inbox (each and everyone made me smile a happy smile).  And to read all the beautiful emails and comments on Facebook, during the whole process, was sincerely wonderful. So thank you.

To all those families that didn’t win a complete portraiture experience, I hope that one day, somewhere in the future, I get an opportunity to provide you with a portraiture experience you won’t forget.

And to those that finished in the top 5 (I will be in touch), I have an extra special surprise for you.

Thank you again for making the whole experience memorable.

The Entrants Revealed *Vote for your favourite* {Brisbane Photographer}

I’d like to introduce you to all of the lovely entries in my competition to win a Complete Portraiture Experience. I received 50 beautiful entries (how about the even number!? Cool huh!). Check out the gorgeous children/families of all ages, and one absolutely beautiful baby bump below.

So – how to vote? Have a look through the galleries below, tick the box with the corresponding number (or if you know the surname, that will help too) on the poll, and then click on VOTE! It’s that simple.

However, you can only vote once. To be fair the system is designed to allow 1 vote only per IP address. Be sure to spread the word far and wide to ensure the contestant you chose has the best chance of winning! Some ideas to help spread the word include post the link to my blog into your Facebook Page directing people to vote, emailing the link to your friends and family or just give them a simple call to tell them all about it. If you want to keep a closer watch on the progress of the competition please head over to my Facebook Page and *like* me to keep informed of regular updates and also future specials (just for Facebook fans).

I would like to thank all of the families who have entered into my competition. I wish each of you all the best with rallying the troops to vote for your image to win!! Good luck!!

Remember voting closes: 11:59pm on 21st of September, 2010

Miracle of birth… {Brisbane Birth Photographer}

I’ve sat here for what feels like a million hours trying to figure out what I wanted to write that would do my experience justice. Sadly, I don’t think any words could give the experience of witnessing the arrival of new life justice.

Birth is awe inspiring to witness; it is truly a miracle…a privilege to be a part of; to watch a new soul being born is like nothing I can explain with words.

This past Sunday my little niece Scarlett Dian entered this world, lungs a blazing into the arms of her loving parents. She breathed her first breath, cried her first cry and looked with uncertain eyes into a world I can only hope will treat her with kindness, love and understanding.

Sunday, 5th September 2010 is a day that will live on in my heart for ever.

Welcome to this world Scarlett. You are loved.

Birth Photography is about emotion. It’s about capturing the blur that is labour through a photojournalistic approach. It’s about people’s faces. A touch. A moment. The tears. The relief. The laughter. The love. It’s a ride of emotion – moments in time everlasting.
