The 2015 Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards were held recently in Melbourne.  After taking last year off from entering, I decided to enter again this year.  I’m happy to say that I came home with two silver awards for my efforts.  Not too shabby!  Here’s a look at my award winning entries:

Fantastic work Shanna!!!! And only 3 points off???!!!! You most definitely are so close- next year is your year! Look forward to seeing your masterpieces in the lead up to next year.

This is a little one year old client I had back in Canberra.  I haven’t blogged this session yet, so I thought it was time I shared!  I had the pleasure of photographing this little beauty several times during her first year.  The first time I met her was when she was still in mumma’s belly back when I did her maternity shoot.  Then again, when she was born, at 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year.  Look at her grow!  This first photo was a storyboard I created that won a silver award at the state awards.  The parents wanted me to take a photo of her with her bear at each session so that we could watch her grow!  I think it turned out so cute!

Oh my goodness, what an adorable child. You have captured her beautifully Shanna! Great job.

Here is the little bundle that was inside mumma’s belly in the previous post! How cute is he?! He gave me some beautiful smiles during this session. I especially like this first one where he was looking at the camera, then dad came over to talk to him and give him a smile, then he turned back to the camera and smiled for me! ha! I couldn’t believe it! I love this series of images so much that I ended up entering it into the national awards and it won a silver distinction!

I had the opportunity to photograph this sweet family whilst we were visiting Hobart a while ago.  What a beautiful day it was at the Botanical Gardens!  I have known this family since our kids were babies.  We met at our first mother’s group back in Darwin!  Those were the good old days!
