Pregnancy is a truly incredible time, and what your body goes through is kind of mind blowing. I love working with people who are experiencing the power and strength of what their bodies go through during pregnancy. And helping them to capture that feeling in photos, for generations to come with a maternity photoshooot. There's not many things worth celebrating more than the miracle of life! x
My first Auckland empowerment shoot for 2021 was with beautiful model Comfort. Having to drastically rearrange life in 2020 pushed me in a new direction as a photographer, and by the end of it I was suddenly sure of what I was meant to be doing. So it was an honor to shoot my first focused empowerment photo shoot with Comfort in New Zealand. I really felt like I had found my calling, and this was the first of many shoots I would be doing in 2021. These empowerment shoots not only empower the model, but leave me feeling empowered as a photographer too. I love to see the power of diversity shine through my lens. x
I am finally sharing some favourite shots from a fabulous styled shoot with a group of talented creative women in Auckland recently. I was joined by models Ashley Mcinroe and Lyndi Barret in this gorgeous west coast location to model clothes by My Keeper NZ and make up by Giovanna Neill. I love doing photo shoots like this and collaborating with talented fashion creatives to create magic. For this fashion & empowerment shoot we focused on honoring our mother earth and the power of women. Empowerment portraits have not only an important effect on ourselves but an effect on those around us as well, including our environment. I consider myself very lucky to be able to shoot in such special locations provided to us by Papatūānuku.
It was an honor to photography Ashley again for a maternity shoot in Auckland just before she was due to give birth to a beautiful little girl. The stunning yellow dress she wore complimented the surroundings of the bay at sunset. This was such a special way for her to capture her bump before her body changed once more. Pregnant bodies are truly amazing!
It's not often I'm lucky enough to do a commercial fashion shoot in such a beautiful location! On a trip back to New Zealand last year we booked in a summer fashion shoot with the super cool Senor Lopez who make the original baja hoodies as well as some very cosy towels and blankets. They're perfect for beach lovers in such a stunning spot like Mt Maunganui. If you have a small clothing or designer business please get in touch so we can make some of this magic happen for you!
Remembering back to this spring time shoot with the gorgeous Ashley McInroe in Auckland's Domain Winter Gardens. This turned out to be the perfect location for a spring time fashion photoshoot and we were able to capture some stunning portraits among the flowers and greenery. If you're looking for your own personal branding or portrait session please contact me for more info x
I love doing photoshoots in New Zealand. After so many years in Paris, being able to work as a photographer on a beautiful NZ beach is such a novelty. This shoot with Christine and her whanau was so much fun and it was a pleasure to be able to capture their family's spirit in this beautiful location in Gisborne. I'll be based in the Bay of Plenty for the next couple of months and available for shoots so please get in touch for your own!
I was invited into interior designer Danni-Lee's Auckland home for a personal branding photo shoot earlier this year and I love the results! Launching a new business is tricky business and it's important to have the right profile of images to use on your website and social media accounts so that your clients know who to trust. As a photographer, I love doing personal branding sessions as each one is so different, representing your unique brand and personality! If you're looking for your own photo shoot in Auckland this year make sure you get in touch with me! If you love the look of Danni's home as much as I do make sure you check her out here!
