Every year, I enter the SA Professional Photography Awards (SAPPA) and the Australian Professional Photography Awards (APPA). Every year, I put my heart and soul into creating as good a portfolio as possible over a couple of categories, and since beginning to enter both competitions have been awarded with an array of Gold, Silver with Distinction, and Silver Awards. I’ve been a Finalist across categories almost every year, and am so proud to say that this year I was awarded the title of SA Family Photographer of the Year. It is something I am so incredibly proud of. I also won this in 2013 and 2016, so to have won it more than once is absolutely wonderful.
Not only is it wonderful to have been awarded this title, but I also spent some time judging the Awards too – an absolute dream come true and career milestone for me. I learn so much every year from what the print judging – it’s two of my absolute favourite times of the year.
It would be remiss of me not to thank the wonderful people who support me endlessly – my family, friends, and clients. Without my family and friends, the wheels wouldn’t turn in my life. They help me in more ways than one and I am so incredibly grateful for my Village. And my wonderful clients, without them I would not have the amazing, beautiful subjects to photograph, that I do. I thank them for trusting me and for allowing me to work with them – it’s simply the best job in the world. I love what I do.
Pretty happy with this result!
