Beautiful, Happy SLEEPY Forest Baby…
A lovely evening with the gorgeous Jamie at Pines Beach. I love the variety this location offers.. its a little bit of a fairytale really xo
This gorgeous family came in for their maternity session looking absolutely beautiful… then Brae from Makeup Artistry NZ got their hands on them and the little ones left the studio looking like zombies – LOL! Thanks so much guys, I cannot wait to meet your little one… EEEEK!

Another fun morning with Jo from Bibbles.
We had a great bunch of babies with their mummas and way too much time dressing them up in their little dresses and Shorts made by Jo Kidd.
I miss stealing her hairbrush
I miss making ourselves fat by stuffing pillows up our pjs
I miss hiding in the wardrobe every single time we played
I miss dancing with you
We should have had longer than those 19 years.
Do I dare print it, it means so much to me, yet everytime I look at it I lose my breath.
I miss you beautiful sister of mine xo
Another gorgeous session in our brand new studio. Julia’s mum wanted a set of outdoor images without taking her baby outside, we were able to create all of these inside the studio and add backgrounds later digitally. I am absolutely in-love with the Mum & Baby images from this session, make sure you scroll to the end to see them 🙂

What a full-on month! I am so excited to be finally in our new studio. On Tuesday I had a fantastic time photographing what felt like a zillion little ones in the new space. The light was fantastic bouncing around all over the show…. Although I am fighting the urge to paint the entire thing black!! However I don’t think Mr Young will be having that.
Thanks a million to our gorgeous models who all worked so hard to help make these photographs.

This was my last winter sunrise at the beach for a while… our noses almost froze and fell off. But this families commitment to beautiful morning golden light created the most beautiful skies for us to work with.
The nailed the “Mum & Dad” shot. We also did a few one on ones, giving each child a special photo of themselves with each parent.
We are looking for super cute Models to rock our Spring Photoshoot for Stitchaholic, Nok, Baby its Personal, Bean Sprout & Gallop.
We have three sizes of clothing/accessories and are after both boys & girls. Sizes are 6-12 months (must be sitting unassisted & able to stand while supported – eg:holding onto a chair), 18-24 months & size 4.

I love this image, its been in my head for a while, thanks Skyla for making it happen – you’re a star.
and the final image
Over the next week or so, I plan on sharing the images that I entered into the NZIPP Iris awards. I am so grateful to Estelle, her mum, her chicken and pony for helping me bring this idea to life. This image received a Bronze award.
We have had the most fun over the last couple of months putting together a display for Jenna McKenzie School of Dance brand new studio. The dancers did a brilliant job at making the beach & gardens look tropical – I can assure you it was not.
The finished installation consisted of 3 large canvas + 13 custom framed prints which we printed &
framed ourselves. We absolutely love how it turned out – there are still a couple more things to go up so
watch this space!!
Models you can access your images here. Now I really cant thank you all a lot for the huge amount of effort that the children put into the shoot. I really hope you all love your images. If you have not been emailed the password please get in touch.
If they ever sell their beautiful govenors Bay home over looking the sea I have made them promise that I will be first to know, There gorgeous home is surrounded by a wild cottage garden with loads of natives – it was Jenna Heaven… Oh and the cat!!! – how perfectly timed is little Oscar.
