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
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.
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!
Another delightful little newborn arrives into our world xx
You may recognise Annika and Jonny from a beautiful Maternity session that I blogged recently. Yes they have had their little boy Mason Deane France -(A little while ago actually – I just haven’t had time to sit down and blog)
Mason was born on 17th August weighing a healthy 8lb 12oz Parents Annika and Jonny were so extremely proud and in love with their little man when they arrived for their newborn photography session with me – and so they should be – he is just adorable. It is such a special time to share with new parents and I am always so grateful that these clients trust me with their precious little babies. It is a time when parents are still getting to know these beautiful little beings that have just arrived into their lives – usually not letting them have much time for sleeping – but they arrive on my doorstep happy for me to capture these special moments and connections that pass us by so quickly. I find the older the child gets – the more treasured and precious these images become to families. This stage goes by in such a blur – and it is hard to believe as they become teenagers and start to overtake us in height – that they once occupied a space in our womb – or fitted into Dads hands quite easily!
WOW – What a beautiful Mum to Be!
Annika Henderson – fun , bubbly, talkative, beautiful, but most of all excited to meet this little man that she has been carrying around for 38 weeks.
It was such fun to capture these photos of Annika and her partner Jonny. Annika just looked beautiful -(Jonny you scrubbed up pretty good to!!) There is not to much more to say – I think I will let the photos speak for themselves.

It is always so lovely to get clients coming back for photos- Especially my bride and grooms when they return with their new family members!! Emily and Ben decided to come and get some family photos done on their return home to visit family recently. It was so lovely to meet their little man James who was just a delight – even though he wasn’t very well at the time. I am so lucky to be involved in such special times in peoples lives – and these people that share such special times with me feel like special friends. It was so wonderful to see you both again and to meet little James. You are an awesome little family – take care xx Lisa Davidson Photography ©
