Night at the bach {Auckland family photography}

It all started a few months back when Bonnie asked about having a Spring photography session at the family bach (cabin).  It was at this point that I did a little internal jump for joy, as it doesn’t get much better than that!  Beauty and personal connection.  The bach holds so much history, joy, and dreams for the future, it was the perfect location choice.  It was all about capturing them at their favourite place just doing what they do – enjoying the stunning beach at their doorstep.

Thanks for the wonderful evening guys! x

Practice camping {Auckland family photography}

Summer is on it’s way!  With all the recent great Spring weather we’ve been having, these two were inspired and decided to do some “camping” in the lounge.  They built the teepee all on their own, filled it with blankets, pillows, teddies, books, and a light, and after a great little evening finally fell asleep dreaming of summer camping adventures that are just around the corner.  Even though it was a school night, how could I say no :)

A Palmy session for this lovely family! {Auckland & Palmerston North Maternity, Newborn, & Family Photography}

A couple weeks back I was able to return to Palmerston North for a special weekend.  It went something like this…  Lovely chats with dear friends who almost all had something exciting happening in their lives.  A movie night in my friends barn with probably 20 members of her family – where it was projected big on the wall and we stayed up late until finally falling asleep in our sleeping bags.  Eating far too much at my favourite cafe so I’d be filled up until my next visit.  And to top it off, I ALSO got to catch up with this amazing family!  What a weekend!

I first met Tracey and Jarrod, and their little family, more than 2 years ago when I photographed them one evening at the beach.  So I was really excited to be asked back to update their family photos!  Little Leah was only a few months old, and she’s now a full-blown running and talking almost 3 year old!  It’s crazy to see them change like that!  It really doesn’t feel that long ago.

We met by the river and were greeted by perfect evening light!  We had a fun little shoot with smiles and laughs, made some beautiful images, and I didn’t think it couldn’t get any better!  But then Tracey said in a msg after choosing her canvas and prints that she “literally had tears of excitement, and would be waiting on the doorstep for the courier”  I’m so lucky to be brought into people’s lives, and asked to create something they will truly treasure.  Often it goes beyond just the delivery of the final products, and friendships are born :)  Lucky girl I am!

So without further delay, here are just few of my favourite images for our shoot.  Hope you enjoy!

2 weeks new {Maternity & Newborn photography Auckland}

Just a little blog today sharing some images from this shoot with the beautiful baby R who was just 2 weeks new.  She was such a small little sweetie, which was a big change after my last couple of big boys who were almost double her size.  She was wide awake for most of the shoot, but that’s ok we got some beautiful photos of her and those big, dark, old soul eyes, that are taking the world in :)  And thanks to the amazing family who wouldn’t let me leave both after the shoot, and after the ordering session, until I filled my tummy with delicious homemade meals.  Yumo!

Light painting at Piha beach {Auckland New Zealand photography)

Last week I was lucky enough to spend an evening enjoying a Piha beach front house with a good friend who wanted to have a play with light painting his company name for promotional images.  This is the result :)  I am pretty proud of my mad “writing with a iphone flashlight/photo taking skills” haha  Before we did this shot, I also managed to get completely soaked from the thighs down chasing a landscape sunset photo in the waves.  I’ll share that one another time, but I have to say it was definitely worth it!  Even though my tripod legs are stiff and filled with sand, and I no longer trust Jason to adhere to my request of “I tend to wind up in the water, please don’t let me do it this time”… Fail on his part lol but that’s ok, he yelled out before my filter got washed away, held my dog who just learnt how to dig in the sand, made me a super dooper dinner, and even carried our glasses of wine to the beach.  I’ll forgive him :)
