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’ve never made anything with so much of me in it.

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

Christchurch Newborn Photography – Julia

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.

These two little boys are incredibly lucky, the love and sense of fun their big sister shares with them is beautiful to watch & photograph.

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!!

MODEL ACCESS
