The first year of your baby's life will pass in a flash
Baby portrait sessions are suitable for babies aged 4 months to 2 years. Family photographs are an important part of any session and I love having grandparents join us at these sessions. Booking is essential.
You will have access to my full range of internationally sourced props and newborn baby clothing. This includes a large range of beautiful vintage style knitwear, bonnets and wraps as well as lovely headbands and halos, crafted by local New Zealand artisans.
I like to hold my baby portrait sessions in the studio, creating elegant and timeless images that celebrate your growing baby. However, if you would prefer a more informal or outdoor session, my Simply Authentic collection would be perfect for you.
I can arrange for a stylist to come to your home before the session to help you with your hair and make-up, and ensure you are feeling your best for the family portraits we will capture during the session. If this would be of interest, please let me know when you book.
What is the best age for baby portraits?
I recommend my smaller petite collection for babies at this age as it is not possible to achieve a large variety of images until your baby can sit unassisted
This is my favourite age for photographing babies
Once they can sit unassisted, and even start to crawl, I can get a lovely range of images that showcase your baby and their own unique personality
Soon they will be running around and your baby will be a child. Capture them now so you can always look back and remember.
