Connie Edward Photography bio picture
  • Connie Edward Photography

    Welcome to my website! I am a Special Events and Portrait Photographer. As a photographer I believe that photography is more than just capturing an image of what is in front of me; rather I see it as an opportunity to express feelings. I enjoy utilizing the camera as my tool with which to convey life’s emotions. I am so privileged to do what I love, capturing High School Seniors, Families,Children,Engagements, and Special Events. It is my pleasure that you have taken interest in my work and I hope you find what you are looking for. Don't forget to revisit often for sneak peeks...

It is always a great pleasure being able to take portraits of people who have a positive attitude, such so that it easily reads into the camera’s lens as was the case with this Portrait Shoot of Sensei Andrew.

Starting out in a small country town in Australia, he has been able to travel the world and train with some of the best martial artist’s in his field.  Having trained in countries such as Japan, Russia, Switzerland, Spain, Canada, and the United States to name a few place’s Andrew has been.  Also, he has competed in World Championships: All Japans, European and Pan American Tournaments and winning or placing in the top three for his events.  Moreover, he has over 15 years of experience teaching people as young as 3 years old to Adults, bringing a great experience to any class that he teaches.  With the attitude that any form of Martial Arts is good for you and that it can help with self-confidence, self-esteem and brings out the best in people, are the reasons why Andrew started doing Karate, and continues to this day.

Pretty and Nice!

Backyard Portrait Photoshoot! I love it when the surroundings lend themselves for perfect portraits. It’s what you choose to include in your camera frame which gives a photo a certain mood. These images remind me of some kind of tropical place!

2011 Invisible Children Charity Event

This has been Shannon Hair Salon’s 4th annual charity event, this time benefiting a non-profit group Invisible Children Inc. Teamed up with them were such sponsors like Azul Tequila, The Cookie Couture and Lee’s Wine Bistro. During their silent auction Invisible Children Inc. screened the “Roseline” documentary.
With this being my second time around asked to work with these fast paced, show stopping hair and make-up styling pros, I knew I would need to shoot with rapid fire image capturing attitude. I wanted to deliver somewhat different images that would differ from the previous year. As all photographers do, I looked for the best natural light, reflections, and white surfaces from which to bounce light. All these factors, presented themselves to me as I guided one of the models outside to shoot her in the natural light. The reflection of the red carpet bouncing onto the metallic front door counter was a sure temptation for me to try a few shoots. In short, it was a great spot to use as a backdrop with the combination of my flash to add the catch light in the models eyes. I am happy to say that the way I cooked my images of all the beautiful models on and off the runway, shows the hard work and dedication that took place at the 2011 Shannon Hair Salon Charity Event. Special thanks to all these beautiful enthusiastic models that helped make it a successful night for all!
