Capture the exquisite perfection of new life + document your growing family

Internationally awarded and recognised as one of Christchurch’s leading newborn, maternity, and baby photographers, I specialise in creating exquisitely beautiful and timeless images that spark joy.

Do you have photographs of your children on your wall? Photos help kids feel loved, cherished and a valued part of the family. Displaying portraits at home, where your kids can see them easily, makes a public statement that you are proud of them and gives them a sense of reassurance and comfort.


With a lifetime of experience as a photographer and five years of specialist training and expertise in newborn handling and posing, maternity posing and working with energetic children, I will ensure you leave with beautiful photos for your walls and memories of a wonderful experience.

My full-service studio is located in Ferrymead, Ōtautahi Christchurch, NZ. Specialist photography services include: Maternity | Newborn | Older Baby + Milestone | Child + Family

If you love classic, stylish and exquisitely printed photographic art, you have come to the right place. I hope that receiving gorgeous photos from your session is a given; what I really want is for you to have an amazing experience and go home with lots of lovely new memories.

Hi I'm Kirsten..... 


I'm mum to two energetic boys under seven, so I know it's impossible finding time for a photo session; let alone doing anything with your images when they arrive! Let me do the heavy lifting for you. All of my collections include printed images as well as digitals. I will help you design the perfect wall collection or album and will take care of everything else. ​ I also know you don't want to get in front of the camera, it's not my favourite thing either, but it's important to 'exist' in family photographs. Your kids will cherish these images and one day they may be the most important portraits they own.


I am passionate about creating beautiful images of you and your family that you will love. Recognised as one of our leading Christchurch newborn photographers; and internationally awarded for maternity photography, newborn photography, baby photography and child and family photography, you can feel confident we will deliver photographs you will love.


What Clients Say

Kirsten took photos of my seven day old baby. Having her with Kirsten and Lynley was the first time I had relaxed since she was born! They were so gentle and loving with our wee one! I was so excited to see our photos, they were so beautiful I couldn't leave any behind!

Laura, Newborn Session, December 2021


No one likes walking into an unknown situation - so make life easier and check out a newborn session in action

You will get to see how we wrap, soothe and photograph newborn baby Arthur, while using props and my newborn posing bean bag

Spot how Lynley stays close to Arthur at all times, ensuring he is safe and comfortable, so you can sit back and relax (more than one Mum has taken a nap!) and enjoy watching us work

Please note that this video was filmed in our previous studio and before COVID - hence we are not wearing masks. 

Baby Portrait By Christchurch Baby Photographer Kirsten Naomi Photography

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.
