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

We cannot underestimate the power of photographs to keep us feeling linked to others and belonging. They cement us into our networks.

For children in particular, looking at photographs is part of the socialising process; learning who you are and where you fit into the family. By displaying photographs of our children at different stages of their lives, we are making a very public statement that we are proud of them. 

Geoff Beattie, Head of School & Dean of Psychological Sciences

(University of Manchester, UK)

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.

David Krauss, Psychologist

EXPERIENCE A NEWBORN SESSION

Have you ever wondered what a newborn portrait session is like?

 

This video gives you the opportunity to look around my studio and watch a newborn session in progress. Watch as my photography assistant and I wrap, soothe and photograph five day old Arthur using props and my newborn posing bean bag.

 

You will also be able to see some of the outfits, wraps, blankets and props I have available for you to use during your session.

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 can even introduce you to my own professional picture hanger; 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
