Lifestyle Family Photographer Awards
Last Friday I had some incredible news. The results of the third round of the Lifestyle Photographers Association came out and was very impressed with 12 award-winning photos!
The Lifestyle Photographers Association is a relatively new association, just over a year old and was created to gather and reward lifestyle photographers from around the world. Despite it’s a new association, it’s growing fast and it already has hundreds of photographers participating from all around the world.
For those who are not yet familiarised with the term, lifestyle photography is about portrait sessions, but in a less traditional and posed way. The photos take place on locations chosen by the client, that has to do with them, often in their own home, and the photographer may or may not stimulate the activities and interactions between them. The idea is always to flee from traditional poses and to look for real connections, their personality and, as the name says, their lifestyle.
The contest is in its third round and I only start to participate now. I decided to be part of the association since one of my working styles is lifestyle photography.
I sent my photos and was hoping to have a shot at a prize. When the results came out, I was impressed by the amount. I had twelve photos awarded! And this number made me the photographer in London with the most awards and the UK’s second, without even participating in the first two rounds.
Needless to say, it made me both surprised and happy! In day to day, I care about making my client happy with the work that I deliver. But having my work validated by an international association reinforces that I’m on the right track.
Also, none of this would be possible was it not for the families I photographed, who believed in my work and gave me the freedom to create with them. Thank you, dear ones, you are all special and will forever have a space in my heart.
I am showing here my twelve winners. The caption of each photo has the link to the full session it came from. 😉
