Wee Jakob can in to the studio at 11days New he was a tinny wee button and rocked his photo shoot.
Below is my favourite Image from his session
Here is Photos from Sarah's 2nd Maternity Shoot
This young man, Phoenix, joined us for our Xmas Mini photoshoots and he was such a great Model and enjoyable to photograph. I think when he's older he will be a "Breaker of Hearts"
Wee Thea came to see us once again to have her photos taken, this time in our Xmas Mini's. This is our 2nd photoshoot with this little button, and it was such a pleasure to see her again, and photograph her with her Mum and Dad and Nan and Grandad.
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.
This is Sonia and Tim's second Maternity Session, this time taken in our Studio. Can't wait for this little man to arrive and take his photo.
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.
Gunner came into the studio for his Portrait, he is such a cutie and a breed that i hadn't heard of before.
He is a Swedish Val Hund and looks like a miniature German Shepherd
During my time at Aoraki Polytechnic Dunedin studying the Diploma in Digital Photography, we had a weekly assessment called advanced subject elements and composition that was about meaning, this assessment at the time was "TIME" so my subject was my Grand Pearents!.
This is what i came up with
Advanced Subject Elements and Composition: Meaning "TIME"
Here is some more images from the shoot.
I wanted to capture my Grandad doing his old Boxing moves from when he was an Otago southland Boxing champ! so he put on quite a good show for us! I say he's still got it.
The image Below is what i entered in to the 2012 NZIPP AWARDS Student and Assistant Category and got 61 points a High Professional Standard i was lucky enough to be able to see it jugged in person in Christchurch

I think this Has to be my most favourite Maternity Shoot even though it was only our 2nd Maternity Shoot, i just love to make images that show the progression of a new life and to see how they change as they get older
Meet Chanel, while i was studying the Diploma in Photography at Aoraki polytechnic i had a plan to do progression shoot and enter it in to the NZIPP Awards under the student Category but unfortunately i couldn't complete it in time as bugs hadn't been born in time, so any way i still carried on and this was the end result i am going to try and keep it going as long as i can :)
here are the rest of the images i took along the way
This set of images were taken at the very fist shoot of the progression around 4-6months
and this set is from the 2nd shoot at around 7-9months
and this set was from the last shoot 7 days after Baby Brax was Born
Chanel thank you for agreeing to take part in my project i am so great full to you :)
