I won the second and third place in the portrait category of the mandurah landscape and portrait prize 2020!

I can officially call myself an Award Winning Perth Family Photographer! The image that placed second is one of my all-time favourites of my daughter so it holds a very special place in my heart!

The image that placed third is another favourite because I just love the depth and high contrast lighting in this one.

A third image of mine also placed in the top ten finalists for this particular competition.

Can’t recommend her enough
