Announcement : Bloom is no longer offering wedding photography

Shannon Cotterill

This has not been an easy decision for me, but after 16 years the time has finally come for a change & a new path! Everything in life runs it’s course, and my belief is that it’s time to let go so that I can move onto other things…make way for the new so to speak!

I will forever be grateful to my beautiful wedding clients who have allowed me to have this business for so very long. Capturing your special day (and usually followed by newborn & family portraits!!) has honestly been a privilege. It warms my heart to think that those images will live on & be cherished for many years to come…

I have also experienced amazing locations through my work (places that I would not have seen otherwise!!), and ultimately have made life long friends that I probably wouldn't have crossed paths with if it had not been for capturing their wedding day!

A special mention to Kat, Nadina & Sol - I seriously could not have done it without you!! So many laughs (and a few swear words at times ha!!), so many memories, so many images captured... Even though we are not shooting weddings anymore you will always be my Bloom Family, thank you thank you thank you xxx

Kat & I will still be taking limited newborn & family portrait bookings, but I have cut back on the amount of work I am taking on with Bloom to focus on projects I have planned for 2019 with my fine art photography (Shannon Cotterill photographer) & my new business venture - if you are interested head on over to Asha Moon to see what I have been up to!

With this year coming to a close it felt like the right time to make the announcement - thank you again for all of the love & support over the years, it truly means the world to me!

2018 AIPP NSW Illustrative Photographer of the Year!!!

Shannon Cotterill

I am thrilled to announce that last month I was named the AIPP NSW Illustrative Photographer of the Year! This is the 4th consecutive year that I have won a category at the state awards, and I feel extremely honoured (especially after watching the judging over over 2 days & the caliber of images that were entered!)

I was also named Finalist for the AIPP NSW Portrait Photographer of the Year, and won a gold award in that category with an image of my daughter Layla - so that was really special for me. 

The national Australian Professional Photography Awards are coming up in August in Melbourne, I have my sights set on that next - so stay tuned!
