5 REASONS to WORK WITH ME

1. MAKE YOUR WALLS HAPPY

I want to help you remember the magic of being a parent. In the middle of the lost shoes, spilt cereal and toddler tantrums, I want to help you take a breath and remember how much you love your family – and make your home beautiful in the process. Photos shared online are great, but gorgeous photos on your walls make your children grow up feeling loved and special and make your home happy.

I have hand selected a range of amazing, unique products from around the world, from local boutique printers to international professional print labs. My mission is to turn your favourite memories into works of art that will wow your visitors and make you smile every day.

 

2. IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU

Working with me isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. Every session is unique and is completely tailored for you and your family. Indoors or outdoors; your place or mine; more formal poses or crazy, silly, totally-being-yourself fun; one child or five of them; siblings, parents, and the family pet. I am all about capturing your children and family as they are, so everything about your session is customised to fit YOU.

I will work closely with you before your photographic experience to find out about your children and your family - and to help YOU think about what it is you love most about them and what you want to capture forever.

 

3. A PROFESSIONAL AND AN ARTIST

Every photo is backed by years of study, experience and technical knowledge. I understand light and how to make it flattering. I use different angles and lenses and locations to create images that bring out the best in your children and your family. I am passionate about what I do and I take pride in making every photo I create for you as beautiful as possible.

You will have me to guide you through the whole process, with helpful tips and information, a personal design consultation to help you choose the perfect wall art for your home, and support on call for any questions you have along the way. I only take a very limited number of clients, and I do everything possible to make sure you love the whole experience.

 

4. THIS IS WHAT I DO

I pour my heart and soul into working with babies and young children. You won’t be stuck with a wedding photographer who photographs babies on the side or a product photographer who does the occasional shoot with kids. My expertise and passion is focused on bringing out the best in these little people and capturing their budding personalities - and doing it safely.

My studio is set up for children and babies. We have toys and books, an enclosed deck and yard, and plenty of space for older siblings during newborn shoots. You and your kids can make yourselves comfortable, relax and have fun with your session.

 

5. I keep it real

I am super friendly and easy-going! You can ask me anything - I am always happy to chat, and you will be treated like a friend, not just a customer. I am a mum myself and I know just how unpredictable children can be. My whole business is set up to work with families, so you can just relax and totally be yourselves! No pretentious, cold studios where you are afraid to touch anything, or stuffy, intimidating conversations where you don't feel you can say what you really want. Just have fun, be yourselves, and let your children shine.

There is no set time limit for sessions - we take as long as we need to get the photos you want. Snack stops, nappy changes and feeding breaks are all totally normal!

You will never have this day with your children again - tomorrow they'll be a little bit older than they are today. Today is a gift, breathe and notice, smell and hold them, study their faces and little feet and pay attention.

I am a newborn and children's photographer based in Te Awamutu, New Zealand. My studio sessions are held in my home studio in Te Awamutu. Lifestyle session fees include travel to most of Hamilton, as well as Cambridge, Tamahere, Matangi, Pirongia, Ohaupo, Kihikihi, Otorohanga, and a range of rural areas across the Waikato.  I am happy to travel further, including Raglan, Kawhia and other coastal locations, for an extra cost.
