Who or What Inspires you?

I have various amazing photographers all over the world that i follow on social media that continue to inspire me and encourage me to push my photography to the next level. I get inspired by women and mothers, i love to empower them through my photography.

What is your “Why” for entering awards?

Entering awards is a new thing for me. Even though the creative in me critiques all of the work i do and i get the little voice saying “that’s not good enough”, i use the awards to push myself out of my comfort zone.
Being awarded gold and coming second in the birth category in last years Rise Awards validated me, my work and the direction i want to go in, which feels amazing!!

Let us know why its your favourite and what it is that makes you want to create images like this?

It is my favourite image for a few reasons.
– It was from the very 1st birth i photographed.
– The image really spoke to me, i felt so much emotion and immediately it was “the one” out of the entire birth gallery.
– It was awarded Gold at Rise and ultimately took me to coming second in the birth category.

What is the biggest lesson you have had from entering awards?

To just go for it!! Stop thinking too much and just enter, you never know what will be awarded GOLD.
