Newborn photography

By Jo Frances – 2019 Winner NZ Family Photographer of the Year
Photos to cherish that truly magical time

I just love to photograph newborn babies

Newborn portraits are a highly specialised area of photography and Jo is uniquely experienced in settling and comforting newborns. She is known as Wellington’s baby whisperer!  Jo will ensure the shoot goes smoothly and stress free and you end up with stunning images you will treasure. Our newborn photos range from simple and sweet to the more elaborate images with cool props. A newborn photo session will take up to three hours and can include family portraits, mum/dad and baby portraits, your baby on their own and siblings portraits. The ideal time to visit us when your baby is two weeks old or less, when they are still nice and sleepy and we can get all those lovely curly newborn shots! If this stage flashes by you however, we can still take gorgeous photos of babies of any age.

Can not recommend Jo enough!

I absolutely cannot recommend Jo highly enough! Jo is lovely, professional, and absolutely wonderful with children (she's a mother herself, so she gets it). She made our photoshoot feel incredibly easy, despite having a toddler to coerce. Everything was so quick and painless. When I first saw our photos after the shoot, I have to admit that I got a bit emotional! Despite having been an avid follower of Jo's work for some time, I was still shocked at how beautiful the shots were. Jo's work is breathtakingly beautiful, I feel so privileged to be a part of her body of work. There's no doubt that we will treasure these photos for the rest of our lives!!
