EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHS OF THEIR FAMILY

An award winning, Christchurch based portrait photographer, I specialise in photographing newborns, babies, pregnant mums-to-be, children and families.

I offer classic studio sessions or more relaxed sessions at home or outside. I will photograph your loved ones at their best during an enjoyable, stress-free, portrait session and create images that you love.

 

Parents are busy, so I make it easy to create a stunning collection for your home. I have beautiful framing options to compliment your images that you can see, touch and order direct from my studio. I will take care of everything else. 

 

Simple and Perfect

Placing a family photo where a child can see it every day, without having to turn on a device, gives the child a sense of reassurance and comfort. Photographs have a certainty about them and a protecting quality that nurtures a child. It lets them know that they are loved and cared for.

WHAT I CREATE

I am passionate about creating beautiful images that you will love and be proud to display in your home

I'm mum to two energetic boys under five, so I know how difficult it can be to find the time for family portraits; let alone creating an album or framing images for the wall. That's why I have built my collections with simplicity in mind, making it easy for you to have beautiful portraits on your wall and gifts for your family. I will even introduce you to my own picture framer; so all you have to do is decide where to hang your new portraits.

I also know it can be daunting to get in front of the camera, it's not my favourite thing either, but it's so important to "exist" in family photographs. Your kids will cherish these images and one day they might just be the most important portraits they own.

 

I am an experienced photographer and I will help you feel comfortable, to relax and enjoy your session. I will create images that you love, prepare everything for you so there is no additional work and, most importantly, you and your family will have fun during the session and make new memories together. 

I look forward to chatting and helping you create your perfect portrait collection.

My name is Kirsten and I will be your photographer
