When my son was born I discovered what love really meant. When I held him that very first time and looked into his massive, brown and knowing eyes, my heart expanded so much that it scared me it would burst with love. I couldn’t get enough of his smell, of the feel of his little body in my arms, of just staring at him and watching every tiny movement.
It is this love that I bring to every session I photograph. Meeting families, fur-babies, brand new parents, capturing that emotion, that connection and love – this is my absolute passion.
My hope is that these portraits become your heirlooms, that every photograph of each little detail, moment, and emotion becomes a precious memory not only for you as a parent, but for your family as they grow and their stories begin to unfold.
Steph is our baby -whispering, natural-smile catcher and all round amazing photographer!
Sessions with Steph are fun and high energy – kids love her, parents are quickly put at ease and babies settle quickly.
An experienced photographer for 10 years – Steph has run her own studio in Melbourne before returning home to New Zealand and becoming part of our studio team.
I truly love watching the magic that families create amongst themselves when they come in for their portrait session. Simply by showing their love for one another and by being themselves each family, no matter the makeup, is special and important to us and we make it our goal for you to feel exactly this.
