Brylee's Mum won a free sitting via our Facebook Page and wanted a location photoshoot so we meet up at the top of the gardens with is really nice at this time of year with the red, yellow and brown Autumn Leaves.
Amber and Scott were given a voucher that a friend had won from an advent at St Joseph primary School in Port Chalmers and decided to use it to document the 4th and Final Baby, so they decided to start with her maternity.
Long Beach as been a huge part of Ambers child hood so it was a fitting location for her maternity shoot
Cruz and Roo are two beautiful Golden Labs, their mum and dad Jan and Matt wanted to get images for their wall with their two fur babies to celebrate their anniversary together and picked the spot where they take the dogs for their daily walk which was Frazers gully in Kaikorai Vally.
Connor, Jackson and Ella had a photoshoot with us up at the Botanical Gardens. They were hard to catch in one spot for very long so we were lucky to get the three of them sitting together lol. They even went fairy hunting! Caught and released a fairy :) ("No fairies harmed in the taking of the photoshoot") :)
Back in 2012 i photographed Bonnie and David Casey's Pets, they had 3 cats and an old dog, two of the cats were pure breed persian's named Pepper and Billy, and a persian x russian blue named Beagle's their dog was a english bull terrier named ollie who since photographing her has sadly Passed away, these photos of her are now framed taking pride and place in their home!. We believe that its very important to have these memories to keep for years to come because a family pet in not just a pet they are a very important part of your family, they are just as important as your children and should be treated the same.
Meet Ollie, such a sweet gentle thing! i realised something during the time i new her, i had heard that these dogs were nasty and attacked people the same as the staffie and pit bull breeds and were made to be muzzled when taken for walks but i learnt that that is simply not true, for all the years of knowing this dog she never had a vicious bone in her body yet her breed is feared by most people. i am glad that i was lucky enough to know her and will remember all the good times she shared together, like the times we went camping! Ollie came too, she even came fishing with us, i remember evey time i came to visit she would greet me at the door with a few barks then her funny we grunt as she sniffed me.
R.I.P wee Ollie Dolly, you won't be in pain any more sweet heart rest easy :'(
Jordyn and Lilly came in to the studio with mummy to celebrate Lilly's birth and Jordan being promoted to big sister!
Jordyn adores her little sister and was a great wee model for us.
What a wee Cutie Aria was only 4 Weeks New and slept almost the inter time of the shoot
The Shaw, Steedman and the Casey Families go back years and its been an honour to photograph this family twice now and also watch theIr family grow.
This photo shoot was gifted to Jill by an anonymous friend as Birthday a Present. we had been asked to keep the persons name a secret from Jill and they would reveal who had gifted the shoot to her on her birthday in June.
we photographed this family at the gardens and was so much fun, I don't think i have ever laughed so hard at the photo shoot before this one.
we absolutely enjoyed this shoot so much and we hope you enjoy your images Jill and have a happy birthday from Tina and I
Allison Birthday was coming up and we were contacted by one of her Daughters asking for a price list.
They booked a session with us and organised to go up to the Dunedin Botanical Gardens.
The day started off great the sun was shining and blue sky's things were looking great after a week of rain but as i was driving into town it started to rain and i thought oh no please rain go away and come again another day or rain for now but as soon as 2pm comes please stop but it didn't look like it was going stop. I got up to the top of the gardens and waited for Tina to arrive and it was still spitting, when Allison's family arrived the rain stopped! so we picked up the cameras and completed all paper work and it was time to take some photos!
Meet Allison and her Husband Eric and her 3 Children Ang, Craig, Hayley and Grandson, Brandon who is Ang's Son
