Silver Award- Birth Category
This year I entered prints in the newly included Birth Category of the State awards. Once again I feel very humbled to have been awarded a Silver Award with an image that is very near and dear to my heart.
Photography styles are changing and Birth Photography is something I have made a true connection with in recent times. Being able to capture the physical and mental struggle to bring a new life into the world and then the elation of the new parents and loved ones is just a very special thing to do for someone.
Charlie’s expression has won a Silver award in the State Photographic Awards, ok so I won it really, not Charlie. Entering these awards is not for the faint hearted especially when as a photographer you are emotionally invested in the image and quite often the back story can hold much more emotion.
2012 – AIPPA
I am very humbled, thrilled and excited to announce that I have won 3 silver awards for my images through the AIPP it was my first time entering and to say I was a tad nervous is really a huge understatement. My aim for the awards was to score in the high 70’s and that would make my work of high professional standard to be awarded 3 silvers is amazing and really humbling I am very grateful. Thank you everyone that has congratulated me and encouraged me along in this journey I am very thankful xxxxxx
