Our Clients Say

Keva - Insta Web 1500px-25.jpg

"We had a family photo session with Kirsten for our 11-month-old leading up to her first birthday. Kirsten's studio is lovely and inviting, with so many gorgeous outfits and props to choose from. Kirsten is extremely good at capturing shots with a very energetic crawler who didn't want to stay in one spot! Her ideas for setups are beautiful, and she set up a special 'ONE' shoot for us. Our photos were stunning, and we can't wait to get some framed to hang up. Highly recommend"

The Experience

Baby and toddler sessions are suitable for babies aged 4 months to 2 years. Family photographs are an important part of any session and we love having grandparents join us at these sessions. Booking is essential.  You will have access to our full range of internationally sourced props and baby clothing. This includes a large range of beautiful vintage style knitwear, bonnets and wraps as well as lovely headbands and floral halos, crafted by local New Zealand artisans.  We hold our baby portrait sessions in the studio, creating elegant and timeless images that celebrate your growing baby. We can arrange for a stylist 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 us know when you book. ​Many of our clients come regularly during their baby's first year to document how quickly they grow and change. You should expect to be with us for up to 1.5 hours.

Best age for photographs

100 days


Celebrating your baby's 100th day is a cherished tradition in many cultures, and it's a perfect opportunity to capture their growing cuteness!  


From tiny toes to toothless grins, this milestone is all about capturing the essence of your baby's sweet innocence.

7 - 10 months


Sitting unassisted is my favourite milestone because the posing options are endless!


From gorgeous expressions to cute outfits, simple prop set-ups, and fun toys, your baby's curiosity and newfound ability to sit independently make for some beautiful portraits!
