Self portrait of Kirsten the newborn baby and family photographer behind the camera at Kirsten Naomi Photography

I'm mum to two energetic boys under seven, so I know it's impossible finding time for newborn and family portraits; let alone do anything with your images when they arrive (yes, I also have USBs full of images sitting unseen in my office drawer).


Let me do the heavy lifting for you. All of my collections include printed images as well as digital files. 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. I'm an expert in shaping with great lighting and posing; I will look after you and ensure you look your best.


You will receive a collection of images that you love, and most importantly you and your family will have fun during the session and make new memories together. 

My name isKirsten



Lynley and I look forward to welcoming you to our studio in Ferrymead, Christchurch. Clients have told us that they immediately feel at home on entering  - and that's definitely the vibe we want to create.

Relax in one of our seating areas and watch the session - more than one tired Mum has taken a nap on our comfortable couch! We also have a small play area if you need to entertain older children.


Cold drinks, as well as tea and coffee facilities, are available. For our littlest clients, there is a changing area with plenty of spare nappies, wipes and muslins.

We have a large studio wardrobe with everything you need for your baby, smaller children (up to age 7, with a few options for older girls) and gowns and other options for maternity session or for Mum's who want to feel a little glamorous!

While you are visiting make sure you have a look at all of our beautiful products. We have framed wall art on display, glass portraits, portrait boxes and albums. We are big believers in the importance of being able to "touch and feel" the quality that we offer, so feel free to 'look with your fingers' as well as your eyes!
