Kid's photos that are unique, affordable and show the spirit of your child.
I like photos that are exciting and filled with emotion. That show a child's personality and possibly take a glimpse into their imagination. I want to be excited and amazed when I look at one of my images and I hope that you will be too.
Children do not sit still in life and I do not expect them to sit still in a studio. That's why I shoot mainly on location. It's very hard to capture the spirit of a child in an environment that they find boring and restrictive, but take them out into the world and their inquisitive nature takes hold and they really show their true selves.
The images on the home page are from my Atelier Children's Portraits Portfolio. Once printed in their high resolution, large format size they are true museum quality works of art. For more information on this exclusive product please visit the Children's Portraits - Atelier information page.
Capturing children at their best and showcasing their personality is a lot easier and more natural when they are absorbed in something they find familiar. Whether it's a a family birthday party, a school event, or a regular Saturday morning sports match there are many situations that I can capture fantastic images. Have a look through my Event Portfolio to see that standard of work I produce on a regular basis. I have many options available for events coverage, please visit the Family, School & Sport Photography information page to find out more.
I shoot Events and Casual Family Portraits in a very similar way and I haven't separated them in my Events Portfolio. The main differences between the two are that casual portraits are not based around an event, and are more focussed on capturing images of a particular person or family. If this sounds like something you may be interested in please have a look at my Family Portrait Photographer information page.
I currently live in Auckland and have two young children of my own. I have worked with and taught young children from babies through to school age both here and in Japan. I know how children behave and what to expect from them. I know they have limits and their personalities vary greatly. I also know that with a bit of patience great things can happen. I love the way children see everything fresh, they're not afraid to question and try new things. Kid's photos are something special and really help to remind us of them how they used to be. I would love the chance to photograph your child and capture what is so special about them before the chance is gone. I hope my images can help you to see your child in a new light and look back on them as they were in years to come.
