A comfortable, friendly studio in murrays bay, perfect for pregnancy shots, babies & kids. This is where I’m based.

Compact & personal, this location is perfect for more intimate sessions & smaller groups. Entry is on the ground level - just come straight through from the driveway. There is plenty of free street parking in bellbird rise & also off-street in the private driveway.

at your home / location

Let me come to you! if you feel nervous about coming into a studio or would like to show off where you live or work at the same time, then a portrait in your home or place of work or other favourite location, like Auckland’s Domain or Albert Park for example, is often the solution.

I have a fully portable solution, so I can bring everything from a simple flash (or sometimes none at all) through to full studio lights & backgrounds!

the great outdoors

New Zealand has so many wonderful outdoor locations that we are spoilt for choice. Just name your backdrop!

We have some of the most fantastic scenery in the world, right on our doorstep, so why not have a portrait done in the great outdoors? Family playtime on the beach, Rangitoto or the Sky Tower as a backdrop, or one of our fantastic national parks - you choose!

With my fully portable solution, there are not many places I can’t go...

I do not charge different rates for different locations. I can travel anywhere in the world for you, it’s just my travelling expenses that will add to the bill... but I don’t charge anything for travelling within auckland.
