2012 Australian Professional Photography Awards – APPAs {Brisbane Award Winning Photographer}

It’s that time of year again – Australian Professional Photography Awards (APPAs) time. I arrived home yesterday after four long, nerve racking, fun filled days in Melbourne. Some of you might recall me writing about the experience last year. Nothing much has changed and the experience, for the most part, remained the same, and I imagine not much will alter in the future (aside of course from what awards I walk away with). So, without further ado, I’m pleased to say, that in 2012, I walked away with 3 silver awards (in the family category) from 4 prints entered. Not as lucrative as last years experience but an accomplishment none the less…one I am extremely proud of.

And of course, without my beautiful clients I wouldn’t have anything to enter, so it goes without saying I think they’re all wonderful (and award winning even if their images weren’t amongst those entered).  xx

The winner is… {Brisbane Children’s Photogrpaher}

1,600 odd votes later and we have a winner for the complete portraiture experience with me! It was a close race, with only 3 votes between first and second, but in the end number 7 came out on top. A big congratulations Brittany – 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.

Thank you again for making the whole experience memorable.
