Stories | Wedding & Portrait Photographer Auckland

I photograph weddings, engagements, families, maternity, newborns and commercial. My style is natural and organic, focusing on telling a story.

steph & shane | maternity shoot


This is the first in a series of lifestyle shoots featuring my sister Steph, her partner Shane and their newest family member Sebastian. I documented Steph's pregnancy, Sebastians birth and some delicious newborn moments at home. I'll feature the latter in later blog posts but for now heres a few shots  from their maternity shoot out at the dramatic Karekare Beach. Its wasn't the nicest of days with rain, wind and dark skies but these two rocked it. I've finished the post with some fun shots from Steph's baby shower that I styled (yes those are McDonald's cheeseburgers!)
