When Katie told me that they were based on a sheep and beef farm out at Tinui, I knew that we wouldn't need to go anywhere else to capture their family photographs. And it didn't disappoint! I loved hanging out with this wonderful family and getting to see what they get up to as a family out on the farm.

I have been lucky enough to photograph this beautiful family over the years - each pregnancy & newborn session with all three children. Its always an absolute please to see how they have grown and welcome the newest family member. This time we did things a little differently and opted for an outdoor lifestyle on their wee block of land, where they have just finished building their new home, nestled in among the olive trees. I always love the natural flow of shoots like this - giving the children time to be themselves and play in an environment where they feel so at home.

Wairarapa Family Photographer - April & Family April had just recently moved over to the Wairarapa from Wellington and wanted some updated family photographs, but also to celebrate their new adventure as a family. So I thought what better place than to head down to one my favorite local summer spots. Its such a gorgeous wee camping area with a beautiful river & swimming hole, just as the river exits the ranges. The cool thing was these guys hadn't been there before so it was awesome to introduce them to some of Featherston's best assets. :) I reckon there might be few trips down here once summer returns!
Wairarapa Newborn Photographer - Meet Jett! It the second time I have photographed this lovely family. Little Mr Fox now has a new brother. Its taken a little getting used to but I think they will firm friends in no time! Gorgeous Jett is the spitting image of his big brother as a baby - many with a touch less hair! Jett's mum brought in a beautiful hand knitted blanket for him to be photographed on. It was so warm and snuggly - perfect for these winter nights!

Wellington Family Photographer - Queensberry Album This family came to see me with their goal being to capture the characters of their children at this age and also the relationships between them all. To tell their story we opted to take a few images in the studio and then head outside for a chance to play around and have some fun. Its hard to pick a single frame from this shoot for the wall, and sessions like this lend themselves to being presented as a story told through an album. We put together this gorgeous Queensberry album to document this special time in their lives, which I know these guys will cherish for many years to come.

NZIPP Iris Awards 2017 After entering the NZIPP Iris Awards last year, for the first time again in years I was a little nervous entering again! I had set myself a target, so it was a little scarier then last year when I was just happy to get any award! The New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography has a honors system, where you work your way up over the years depending on how many points you have in total and how many you earned within a 4 year period through the awards. Because I have been a bit sporadic with my entries over the years, I had never achieved the required points within the timeframe to work my way up. So, after last year gaining 6 bronzes, I knew I need at least four more bronzes to get me the Associate level. And if I dared to dream big, I [...]
