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.

WHAT IS THE BEST AGE TO PHOTOGRAPH OLDER BABIES?

4-7 months

I recommend my smaller petite collection for babies at this age as it is not possible to achieve as large a variety of images until your baby can sit unassisted

I like to include parents in these images and it can be a fun opportunity to try something a little more glam!

7+ months

 

This is my favourite age for photographing older 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

We can also use props at this age!

1st birthday

This is such an important milestone to celebrate!

I like to incorporate balloons, bubbles and letters spelling 'one' to create a fabulous piece of wall art that commemorates a full year of parenting! 

Grandparents are welcome too!
