Photographer recognised for work with newborn babies
A local photographer has been recognised for her work with newborn babies.
Daleys Point photographer Ms Jodie Andrews was named the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers' Newborn Photographer of the Year on August 13 for the third year running.
"I'm passionate about newborns and capturing images of new families," Ms Andrews said.
"I love to create unique images that families will treasure in years to come."
Ms Andrews tales time to create her award-winning images and often spends days hand-painting backdrops and props.
For one of her portraits Ms Andrews dipped leaves in wax, painted them with varnish and even used a laser-cutter to create the studio setup.
"Sometimes I come up with concepts, while I'm and stuck in city traffic.
"But I prefer to listen to my clients' stories, so the images are significant to them," she said.
Ms Andrews said: "Newborn photography requires a very different skill set, compared to other portrait photographers.
"A newborn photographer must understand how to calm the baby, know what poses are safe and understand how the final image will be created."
Ms Andrews said working with newborns was incredibly rewarding, even though it was not always the cleanest job.
"Beware of a baby with no nappy," Ms Andrews said.
