Baby + Toddler

The first year of your baby's life will pass in a flash

Capture memories with stunning portraits of your child

Collections start from $1,250

Baby and toddler 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 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. ​I 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 me know when you book. ​Many of my clients come regularly during their baby's first year to document how quickly they grow and change.


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.

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!
