Finn's sitter session {Baby Grow Programme}

Written by Angela Penn on February 4th, 2019.      0 comments


This gorgeous smiley bundle is part of my Baby Grow programme. You bring your baby in 3 times during the year (or more if you want!). First, as a newborn, then sitter and then a big one year old! Finn has already been in for an extra session - his 5 month old milk bath session.  Here are mum's favourite images from his most recent shoot - his sitter session.

Baby Ivy

Written by Angela Penn on September 25th, 2018.      0 comments


Beautiful baby Ivy was in the studio last week for her session - at 10 days old, she was a wee poppet (as you can see by the photos!). I find the best time to photograph a newborn is around 10-14 days, however don't let that stop you bringing in your 3 week old. :)

This gorgeous wee dot came to visit a while back and I'm so happy to be able to show you her beautiful photos!

If you're thinking of getting professional photos taken of your baby, don't wait until they're walking (coz it's way too hard to try and shoot them when all they want to do it run away!).  Sitter sessions are my absolute favourite age as they stay (reasonably) still, they usually are quite happy to sit and give me gorgeous smiles and they haven't normally reached that 9 month old I-NEED-TO-SEE-MUM-EVERY-WAKING-MINUTE stage where mum inevitably ends up in every single photo (or her hand at least!).  Anyway any age is great to get photos taken but sitters are THE BEST!!!

Newborn Baby Mila

Written by angela penn on October 24th, 2017.      0 comments


This gorgeous wee poppet is part of my Baby Grow Programme and had her first session a couple of weeks ago. I'm so looking forward to seeing her growing and getting to know her lovely family a bit better! I've already had Mila's two cousins through for their Baby Grow sessions so we're certainly keeping it in the family!

I've said this in my previous blog post, but I love wrapping up a baby then letting them stretch and wake up naturally as they unwrap themselves. I find it so much more natural looking than all the posed, wrapped shots. Love them.

Baby Jett

Written by angela penn on October 20th, 2017.      0 comments


What a cutie-pie! Jett arrived with his mum and dad, dog Hendrix, grandma and great auntie! It was a packed studio but wee Jett was a superstar and slept most of the time and we got some absolutely awesome shots.  I don't know about you, but I love the more natural shots, where mum and dad can't stop smiling at each other, and the wonder of what they've just created is so evident on their faces. I also love the more natural baby shots too - I don't like anything too contrived and posed - I prefer to wrap baby up, take a few shots then unwrap him and capture all those beautiful stretches and yawns as they unfold. x

The NZ Woman (Andrea Roberts)

Written by Angela Penn on June 3rd, 2017.      0 comments


This week in the studio I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful and very lovely Andrea from The NZ Woman. I have a feeling we could have chatted all day but the school pickup was calling and we had to go our separate ways. Andrea is a wealth of social media information and has an awesome blog where she's recently interviewed The Bachelor's Matilda Rice.  Here are a few images from our shoot! Click here to read Matilda's interview. x

Baby Beatrix

This wee pet came to see me 2 weeks ago for her newborn shoot - and what a wee angel! She slept most of the time and was just so good!  She's got the most beautiful long fingers too!

It's pretty fair to say her mum and dad are over the moon about her and so is her grandma, Diane who came up for the shoot as well. I always love seeing grandparents getting involved in the photo shoot. :)
