In-home Newborn Session

Let’s make this easy for you all.
All you need to do is feed baby, sit back and relax…..  I will do the rest, all in your own home.

I bring along a selection of gorgeous props, headbands/hats and outfits. Plus a small studio set-up (you don’t need a large space) to create images like those shown here on my website.

A newborn session will last up to 3 hours and is best done within the first 3 weeks. My sessions are limited each week, as I have my own three little people – 5, 3 & 2 years old. So please book your session in early.

Your initial investment is $200.00 which confirms and guarantees your space with me.  You will have a viewing session a few weeks after your session, where I will show you a selection of 25-30 beautiful images. You will only pay for what you absolutely love and adore and packages start at $650.00.

Beautiful Bumps

I love photographing bumps at one of the stunning locations around beautiful Hawke’s Bay.  The beach is my favourite; I also like Te Mata Peak and various parks/gardens. We are spoilt for choice depending on what you have in mind as a beautiful backdrop.

Your session best done between 34 and 36 weeks, will last approx. 1 hour. Your session will usually be done in the “golden hour” 1.5 before the sun sets.

I have gorgeous maternity gowns you can use as well as head bands, flowers etc. I also welcome a costume change during the session. Partners and other children are encouraged to be in the photos.

SPECIAL OFFER – Book a newborn session and receive your maternity session free.
