The last of 2009 and our annual Photo Competition ~ {Johannesburg Photographer}

Hi everyone.

Happy New Year,  I hope your Christmas and New Year was blessed with lots of happy memories…
I can’t believe 2010 is already here.. another new year..  Loads happening this year for us…
We’re off to grade 2 🙂 and we have a new baby coming in June.. we are so very blessed ♥ ♥ ♥

I’ve a few sessions from last year to still share with you, but I’m only going to share one from each session as I still want to load the competition…

Meet Tanya and her BEAUTIFUL family.. wow, they are all so very gorgeous!!  and how perfectly dresses were they?


This little guy’s name is Alexandro and he is such a darling..  I cannot wait to meet his little brother or sister that’s soon to be here, hope you are keeping cool Monique.. this heat is awful!


I met up afterwards with this very trendy family.. Meet Natasha and her handsome boys…


And of course a little newborn to melt your heart… meet Imogen… oh my goodness, she is absolutely perfect! ♥ ♥ ♥


With those being the last of 2009, I’d like to take this time and thank you, my clients, for being such an awesome part of my year.  I’ve had so many fantastic sessions this year, I’ve grown not only as a photographer but also as a person, and you had a part of that.. Thank you! ♥ ♥ ♥
Last year I did the best of 2009 photo competition, but this year as I’ve had over 80 fantastic sessions, it’s IMPOSSIBLE for me to choose which ones to put to a vote.. so I’m going to hand it over to you, my clients.
If you’ve had a session with me in 2009 and would like to enter the competition, all you have to do is email me your favourite image from the session.
{ Please attach the image sized for the web (or you can email me the image number) and please put NWP 2009 Photo comp in your subject so I can make sure it doesn’t go to my junk folder }
Email them to
I will then upload the entries and put it to a public vote.
The portrait with the highest votes will win.
I will be giving away 3 prizes this year to the photos with the 3 highest votes.

First place – your image printed A2 and beautifully block mounted
Second place – your image printed A3 and beautifully block mounted
Third place – your image printed A4 and beautifully block mounted

Terms and conditions

Your entries must be submitted before the 14th February 2010
They will be loaded during that week and put up for voting
Voting will be open from the 21st February until the 14th March 2010
Please attach the image sized for the web (or you can email me the image number)
Please put NWP 2009 Photo comp as your email subject so I can make sure it doesn’t go to my junk folder
Email them to

good luck to everyone, I cannot wait to see which image was your favourite.

To end the year, here is a little slide show of  some of my sessions from 2009…  As you can see I was blessed with wonderful clients.. I wish I could include them all in the slideshow, but alas I had a very blessed year with over 80 clients..
I do hope you enjoy it… it’s about 10mbs in size, so might take a little bit to load…
take care and once again thank you..
