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.
When the world was still open I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph this incredibly romantic French-Kiwi wedding in the western region of France. The international couple had their marriage ceremony in a traditional mayors office before moving to the most beautiful locations in Bretagne which closely resembled the shores of New Zealand. It was such an honor to be apart of this special day. x
I am in love with the results of this sensuous empowerment boudoir shoot with French belle, Audrey. Something so simple as a little bit of natural light from a window can have such a beautiful effect, highlighting the natural curves and lines of bodies. Even the smallest of spaced can work well as a studio if you know how to use the light. If you're looking to book a photo shoot in your own home please get in touch. x
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!
This gorgeous couple got in contact with me about a photo shoot in Paris for a very special reason. Not only were they celebrating a romantic to the city of light, but they had some very special news to announce! Doing this little shoot was the perfect way to send the news back to family and friends at home with a touch of style. If you're looking to make a special annoucement or would like a maternity shoot in France or New Zealand, please get in touch! x
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
A little throwback to this fashion shoot with stunning, American model Taylor in Paris. We started of shooting at the infamous Bir Hakeim bridge then moved on over to the very fashionable Place Vendome. I'm so lucky to work with such talented people! If you're a model looking to build your portfolio with a test shoot please get in touch! x
It was such a pleasure to work with Auckland couple Sheenal and Hamish after their ceremony for this wonderful post wedding photo shoot. Sometimes your wedding day can be such a rush you don't get the time to get the relaxed and romantic portrait shots you might have planned for. We had a great time in their local park capturing the last moments of the the days light. If you're interested in a couples shoot in your own space please get in touch!
I had SO much fun with this group of fabulous women during their photo shoot in Paris. Booking in a group portrait shoot for your vacation is such a great idea to capture those memories with your friends in style. Thank you to Michea and friends for bringing their bright personalities and beautiful souls on this shoot. If you're based in Auckland and want to do the same, please get in touch! x
