We are so excited to share, this talented artist with you. Our next featured Rising Star, Janine Coveney, is absolutely amazing!
We have been watching her work for quite sometime now, and (we must say) we are so happy to feature her beautiful work. Check her out!
Hi, my name is Janine and I am originally from New Zealand. I traveled overseas on a working holiday in my early twenties, met my soon to be husband and settled in Australia where we now live with our two boys and one dog.
Like most kids, I enjoyed taking happy snaps of all sorts of things. I’m sure my mother was pained at the thought of the money spent on developing all the film. I don’t have many pictures of me growing up and I know this is one of the reasons my love for photography exploded once our first son was born.
My website was launched in 2010 and looking back, I was not prepared to be in business. I was building the plane while trying to fly it (as a photographer friend once said). It has been quite a journey since then and one that continues to challenge and inspire me every. day.
Family photography is what makes me happiest. I love the simple moments in our every day (you can see a lot of ours documented on my blog). I believe that you don’t need a lot of fuss and stress in preparing for family photos.
When I can capture the true personality of a child and the parents express that to me, I’m over the moon. I would really love to take more documentary style photographs in and around peoples homes.
The photos below were taken in the hospital the day after Tyson was born. I was originally invited to document his birth but it didn’t happen as we had planned (as is often the case with birth).I love that I got to share in these quiet moments of connection between mother (a lovely friend) and son.
