Capture the exquisite perfection of new life

+ document your growing family

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.

I am an award winning portrait photographer, specialising in photographing newborn babies, older babies, expectant mums, children and families.

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.

My studio is located in Ferrymead, Ōtautahi Christchurch, NZ and I would love to help you get some fabulous photos of your family on the wall.

My name is Kirsten.....

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 so important to 'exist' in family photographs. Your kids will cherish these images and one day they may be the most important portraits they own >> Learn more


I am passionate about creating beautiful images of you and your family that you will love


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.

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.
