FROM BEHIND THE LENS
Come and take a look behind the scenes and into the galleries of some of my wonderful clients.
Regular, everyday people making precious memories for their family's.
To celebrate a special milestone birthday, Heather gathered all her family together and we brought to life her vision for a family portrait on the front veranda of her beautiful home. When I went to see her for a consult prior to her session, Heather showed me the spot on her wall she was hoping to fill with a large canvas of all the family.

Matapouri Beach is one of my favourite locations for an evening beach photo session. There are so many textures and vistas we can include from dune grasses to rocky outcrops and gentle waves. During this session we made sandcastles, jumped off sand dunes, snuggled up in the warm evening light and finished up with a playful splash for Mum and big sister Abigail. To View More >>

I think we managed to capture all this (and more) wrapped up in a beautiful heirloom album from Queensberry that the family To View More >>
Pataua North, around 30mins east of Whangarei was the beautiful setting for this early evening family photo session. If you are a local, you will probably recognise the famous walk-bridge that connects the north and side sides of Pataua. Home to many brave swimmers who jump from the bridge amongst much laughter at high tide.Being 4yrs old is such a super cute stage in our kids' lives. I asked a few friends what they loved most when their kids turned 4yrs and I loved this response: "Your babies are turning into real little people and they are just genuinely excited at all the To View More >>
