Little Oliver came to visit from Dunedin at 11 day’s New. He was such a little cutie. Mum – Claire and Dad – Hayden were pretty smitten (and so they should be) Oliver had given them a little cause for concern – but arrived safe and sound. Here is a little selection of photos taken at Oliver’s photoshoot. Dad requested a photo of little Oliver in his boot!! This is the result.
What a delightful little man Nico was. My newborn photography sessions are usually done within the first 2 weeks. This is not always possible and sometimes it is a last minute thing to get photos done. Nico was 8 weeks old when he came to me, so I wasn’t sure if we would get to many “newborn” poses, as by 8 weeks they tend to not be quite so curled up, and are a lot more sensitive to touch. But Nico was a superstar! We got him nice and sleepy and the photos were beautiful. He is such a cute baby! Nice and chubby, with beautiful olive skin and the most amazing long, dark eyelashes. He was a little big to fit into most of my props, but the simplistic photo’s are sometimes the best. I even one a Bronze award at the NZIPP Iris awards with one of Nico’s photos. Enjoy xx
Newborn Photography is such a passion for me. I still get excited with each and every session. I LOVE babies – just incase you couldn’t tell – But this was an extra special Newborn Photography session for me, as it was my cousin’s little girl. Meet little Anika and her precious family – Manu, Koren and big brother Tane. Thank’s for coming through from Dunedin for your photo shoot. It was such a pleasure to photograph your beautiful little family xx Annika – fitting snuggly in Dad’s hands. xx
Maternity session with Ashleigh.
It is always such an exciting time – the start of a new little family. Ashleigh moved home from Australia recently and it was such a pleasure to spend some time with her and photograph this special time in her life. Such exciting times ahead, and I cant wait to meet her little boy that is due to arrive any time.
Simon & Rose married on the farm at Kidd Gully on a overcast day in March. Rose and her bridesmaids/bestman were so relaxed on the morning of the wedding, while Simon and his crew were busy running around, picking up chairs that were being blown over and moving the ceremony location slightly into an area out of the wind. Down in Cromwell we were a little oblivious to the wind as it was not blowing at all where we were. By the time we arrived at the ceremony the wind had calmed and the boys had everything sorted. It was a fantastic spot overlooking beautiful scenery.
The photo’s were all done around the farm. Time disappeared quickly, and then we headed back to the amazing reception area that they had created under the stars.
The reception area looked amazing. They had spent so much time creating this amazing setting for friends and family, and they were so lucky with the weather. Rose had made not one but three beautiful wedding cakes (they all looked amazing). They arrived to the reception by jet boats to the guest’s surprise.
Thank you so much Rose & Simon for sharing your day with me. I so enjoyed my time you all, and wish you all much happiness in your future together xx
Thanks to all involved:
Makeup – Radiance Skin & Day Spa
Hair – Rochelle Weir
Celebrant – Penny Davison

Little baby Kahu traveled from Ranfurly with his parents to have his newborn photos done with me. I find it pretty special when families travel to have their photos done with me. It is a huge privilege to be trusted to photograph these precious little babies, and usually this is the first outing form new Mum’s with their little ones – so it is pretty awesome. Here are some of the precious images I captured from Kahu’s session. Enjoyxx
Precious Family photos to treasure
Look how little Kahu looks in Dads arms. So much love right here!
Amy & Adam
It is wedding season again and Central Otago is such a popular spot for couples to marry. The landscape, weather and childhood memories brings people to Central to share in their wedding day with family and friends. Amy & Adam were one of these couples, coming back to where Amy had grown up for their wedding day in Clyde. Thanks for sharing your day with me x
Newborn photos are so rewarding. I am usually totally exhausted after a newborn session – but I am always left with a smile on my face. I feel pretty lucky to be doing this as my full time job. It was such a pleasure to meet little Emily. Emily was a very treasured little girl that Neil and Renee had patiently waited for. Renee had ended up on bedrest early awaiting this precious little bundles arrival. Emily was born back in April – yes my backlog is big – I am finally trying to find some time to get some photos up on my blog.
