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

A day at the beach {Brisbane Family Photographer}

I try very hard to never plan any sessions I go to, whether that be a newborn or family shoot. If you plan a session too much, you’re only ever going to be disappointed with the outcome because you’ll feel like you never achieved what you set out to. So, if you have limited preconceived notions of what you want to achieve, you can’t ever be disappointed. It’s ok to plan elements of the shoot as in what you wear and where your shoot, but as for the subject matter, I try never to plan anything. Children and newborns are unpredictable – they don’t follow rules and guidelines too well. Often making them do what you want them to do creates stress for everyone involved and doesn’t make for the loveliest of pictures. They want to do their own thing, when they want to do it. And you know what..? That’s fine with me. This is what I absolutely love about photographing children in particular, they create their own story. A story unique to them and their family.

Little Jacob, created his on story the day we went along to the beach. You see, he had never been to the beach before. He loved the sand, but when he spotted the water he was off and no matter how many times we turned him away from the water, he walked right back. According to him, that’s where he wanted to spend the afternoon. And that’s where we spent a good portion of it. I feel so privileged to have been along for the ride, capturing his first real experience at the beach, in the waves. How cool to have that documented for prosperity.

Harry {Brisbane Baby Photographer}

I don’t believe I’ve shared any pictures of my Byron as a toddler, but picture little Harry below and you will get a fair idea. He had the whitest hair and the bluest eyes, just like Harry. It therefore comes as no surprise that I think little Harry is adorable! And equally adorable are the portraits of him with his mummy. There is nothing like a mum and baby son portrait – I only wish I had some like this of my boy and I when he was 13 months…
