2017 AIPP NSW Portrait Photographer of the Year!!!

Shannon Cotterill

I am absolutely thrilled to win the 2017 AIPP NSW Portrait Photographer of the Year (I was also named a finalist in the Illustrative Category). Judging took place in Sydney on the 21st-22nd May with entries from all over the state, with an awards ceremony held last Tuesday evening in Darling Harbour.

I came away with 2 gold awards & 2 silver awards across the portrait & illustrative categories which I am really proud of. Gold awards are not given out easily... to put it into perspective out of 680 entries just 22 golds were awarded - and I received 2 of them! Whoohoo!

It is such a huge honour (I am still pinching myself!), it really does mean the world to me to have won a category in the prestigious NSW Awards 3 years in a row!!

All I can say is dream big - you just never know unless you put yourself out there...

A busy start to the year!

Shannon Cotterill

Wow I can't believe it's already the 1st of June tomorrow - where on earth did that time go?!?!!

We have had a super busy start to the year, so much so that keeping up with regular blogging has just not happened... it's part of my 'new financial year' resolution haha!

Here are a few images of some of the gorgeous families we have had the pleasure of capturing so far in 2017. We have some great new package changes coming up from the 1st July (and a revamp of the studio space over the winter period which I am really excited about!!) - so stay tuned!!

Kidz on the Coast Magazine - mini model sessions

Shannon Cotterill

We had an overwhelming response to our call out for children aged from 2 - 12 years to find the faces of the Christmas edition (& future issues going in to 2017) of Kidz on the Coast Magazine! 

I am thrilled to say we had 27 families participate over 6 afternoons of sessions at locations all over the Central Coast. With so many gorgeous kiddies I'm so glad it was not up to Kat & I to choose who is to be on the cover! (That's the editors choice, and a VERY hard one at that!)

I just wanted to say a heart felt thank you to everyone who was a part of it, it was a pleasure photographing your beautiful children. The Christmas edition is now out featuring little Milla & Aria, but I do look forward to seeing who else pops up on the covers in the months to come... stay tuned!

(please see below all of the gorgeous faces that participated)
