What Clients Say

Kirsten has such a lovely manner and captured beautiful images that reflected who we are as a family. We’ve done two photoshoots with her and would wholeheartedly recommend her!

Lara, Newborn + Baby Session, April 2022

The first few weeks will pass in a blur and you will be amazed how easily you forget things you expected to remember forever

I typically photograph newborn babies between 5 and 14 days after birth, when they are still sleepy and curly from the womb. 

Newborn babies change incredibly quickly and you will be amazed to see how much they have grown when you come back for your viewing session. Booking is essential and I recommend you contact me early in your second trimester to secure your session. All of my newborn sessions take place in the studio.

 

You will have access to my full range of props and newborn baby clothing. This includes a large range of beautiful vintage style knitwear, bonnets and wraps as well as lovely headbands and halos. Many of my props are sourced internationally, but I also love to buy local and support our talented New Zealand artisans.

Grandparents are welcome to join us and my images of proud grandparents cuddling their newborn baby are always treasured.

I have been fully trained in the safe handling of newborn babies as well as the technical aspects of newborn posing.

This is something you must insist on when choosing your photographer, as newborn posing should not be undertaken without the right training, safety practices and equipment.

EXPERIENCE A NEWBORN STUDIO PORTRAIT SESSION

Newborn Session Video

No one likes walking into an unknown situation - so make life easier and check out a newborn session in action

You will get to  see how we wrap, soothe and photograph newborn baby Arthur, while using props and simple classic backgrounds using my newborn posing bean bag

Spot how Lynley stays close to Arthur at all times, ensuring he is safe and comfortable, so you can sit back and relax (more than one Mum has taken a nap!) and enjoy watching us work 

Please note   

This was filmed in our previous studio, prior to COVID, hence we are not wearing masks - we hope to be able to update the video and show our new studio at some point in the future
