Our Clients Say

Heart warming portrait of an expectant mother and her toddler daughter by Christchurch maternity, newborn and baby photographer Kirsten Naomi Photography
"Kirsten was absolutely fantastic during our maternity shoot!
I was quite nervous, being very pregnant with an almost 2 year old running around, but Kirsten was so warm and put us all at ease quite quickly. The photos we received are amazing and we will cherish them forever"

Evette, Maternity Session

The Experience

Your session will take place in our Ferrymead studio around 30 weeks into your pregnancy. Booking is essential, and we recommend contacting us early in your second trimester to secure your session. Prior to your appointment, we will discuss the style of images you love so we can create your perfect collection.


We provide everything you need for your session. We have a large range of maternity wear, including couture gowns, beautiful drapery, and figure-hugging bodysuits, with options for a wide range of personal styles and figures. We can also dress children up to seven, with some further options for older girls. Many of our clients like to take advantage of our hair and make-up artists, but this is not essential. Some of our clients bring along special items such as a Whānau Korowai, Sari, or other important cultural items. You may also like to bring along some jewellery. 

You can choose to come alone or to bring other family members or friends. During the session, we will photograph you in two or three outfits and you can choose two different backgrounds to create a varied collection of images. You should expect to spend up to two hours with us. 

Wall Art

One of the things that makes us different is our focus on helping you create beautiful artwork for your home. We know you are busy, so we do all the hard work in designing, creating, and even delivering your artwork. So all you need to do is hang it on the wall; and we can recommend someone for that too.


All of our wall art is heirloom quality, designed to be passed down to your children. We use the highest-quality materials, and our team includes a Master Framer with decades of experience. 

Don't worry if you don't have room for frames on your wall; we also offer albums and our unique portrait boxes, which are both space-efficient and heirloom quality.
