It’s been 8.5 months since I photographed this amazing little girl enter the world. She would have to be one of the most famous baby’s I know, seen by tens of thousands of people all over the world taking her first breath. This is Brea – the baby in the photograph I took which not only won Gold at the AIPP National Awards this year, but was more famously known for its removed from Exhibition after complaints that the image was too graphic for public display.
Brea has now had two lots of surgery on her heart so far. Her journey through this first year has certainly been full of action for a little baby. Loving parents Kirsty and Brent are nevertheless enjoying every possible minute with their special daughter, just like any new parents. Brea is full of smiles, intrigue and love. It was such a pleasure to photograph this young family again. I can’t ever imagine not being a part of their lives in this small way. xx
