Hibiscus Coast

Auckland family photographer | Durrant family

I love all my Stanmore Bay sessions - it's my local beach and one of the best around! This little family was awesome just wandering along and enjoying a rare sunny weekend day, sheltered from and wind and splashing in that smooth calm water with such a happy little guy.

Auckland portrait photographer | Riley

Riley has a friend who did some modelling for a catalogue, so naturally he thought he may as well give it a go too. The plan was to get some head shots and full length shots of him to use as his portfolio as such... and so I had a go at suggesting poses for him. He has a pretty natural intensity about him, and did well with direction - personally I think he's a VERY good looking and mature 5 year old! Of course I couldn't say no to grabbing some family shots too, and little Cameron needed some shots of her own which have turned out gorgeous (I think her hair/eyes/freckles combo is STUNNING!).

(As an update, Riley scored a spot with Pumpkin Patch almost immediately after I sent some photos through!)

Auckland maternity photographer | Joy family

It was a windy day at the beach when I met up with the Joy family who were soon to become five. But all the long hair blowing in the wind was a pleasure to capture especially knowing that only a few weeks after these photos, mum shaved all her hair off to fundraise for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand. What a beautiful family!
