So another year and another AIPP Photography Print Awards down - both the State and National. This year I managed to enter both, and received 3 Silvers for the State Awards, and 1 Silver for the National. As per usual, there were an amazing selection of fine Photographic Images, in numerous Categories. I entered the Family and Portrait categories. This image of a family was taken during a family portrait session earlier this year - personally, I love it when I manage to capture the connection within the family. Sure I can photography everyone standing or sitting looking at the camera - and I totally get that we all want and need these photos. But what really inspires me is capturing those moments of interaction - those times that we will never get back again, soon in the near future these two beautiful girls will be too large to pick up and swing around easily, and even sooner they and you will forget you even did - capture these times - they are the priceless moments we

Recently I had the chance to go back to Queenstown, Arrowtown and Wanaka in NZ – it was a long overdue holiday with my husband Phil who had not been there before. I had lived there from 1992 – 1999, and just never managed to make it back. It was so wonderful to get back to The Otago region and catch up with old friends, and experience the area again. We caught up with friends Amanda and Shane. Shane is now a full-time Sculptor working mainly in Slate and Schist generally for large scale works placed in their environment. The work is stunning. Shane takes commissions and has created works for collectors in New Zealand, Australia an Europe. Take a moment to have a look at Shane’s Art. http://shanewoolridge.co.nz/biography/
