‘a sister can be seen as someone
who is both ourselves
and very much not ourselves.
a special kind of double.’

i’m over the moon excited to announce that i won an award from the master photographers association (far east)! my image was the winning image in the category ‘newborn & children’.
i could not believe it when i heard my name during the award ceremony, as i had not been told before that i had won – then i looked up to see my image of my daughter nele on that massive screen! i actually felt quite shaky when i went up on that stage to collect my trophy… and as i was wearing rather high heals (while i’m normally in flip flops most of the time…), i’m glad i made it up and down those steps without any accidents… ;)
this award is such an honour – i’m overjoyed!

today i woke up to some wonderful news:
i had submitted some of my images to the international image competition hosted by ‘the monochromatic lens’. there were six different categories, and there would be only one winning image per category.

today, i found out that two of my images were ‘runner ups’, and another of my images received ‘honorable mention’! to be selected out of thousands of images and featured among such amazing artwork is such an honour, and i’m over the moon (happy dance!!!)!

please follow this link to check out the stunning images of the winners and all selected photographers.

and here are my selected images (the first two are the ‘runner ups’, the third ‘honorable mention’):

‘you always hear people say that having kids changes everything,
but you can’t fully realise it until you have children yourself.’

~ jeff bridges

well, for me this was certainly true!
you hear so much from other people, you read a lot, you think you are prepared…
and then this little bundle arrives, and you realise that nothing could prepare you for this profound change in your life and in yourself. you already knew that you would love this baby, but you didn’t know just how much love you’d be capable of feeling until you first laid eyes on this tiny human being!

this little guy gave me maybe a 10-minute-window to capture some posed images of him while he was sleeping – he was very much awake and very hungry for the rest of the session!

his mom did something that i find incredibly brave: she had him at home!
yep, that’s right: at home, no medication, doctor only came for a brief check twice, and baby boy was born right into dad’s waiting hands! mom trusted herself and her body and knew that she could do this – and she was right!
congratulations again!!!

photo sessions with this beautiful family are special to me:
i’ve photographed them for the first time when their little girl was just a few days old, and since then we have done yearly sessions.
i love seeing the kids grow up, i love witnessing the developing family dynamics, i love our yearly ‘bench shots‘, and i love to see how the photo wall in their home grows… both in singapore and in denmark! ;)
