HI, I'M ANGELA
I'm one of Wellington's most trusted and experienced professional newborn photographers - with 12 years in business and 25 years since discovering my passion for photography. As a multi-award winning family photographer, I offer a boutique portrait service for families of all ages from my warm and cosy home-based studio in Tawa, just 10 minutes north of Wellington CBD.
I specialise in Newborn photography - a highly skilled field that requires expert knowledge, patience and love. I take my responsibilities very seriously with your precious little people and am proud to have earned my APNPI (Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers’ International) Newborn Safety certificate, as well as my certificate for First Aid for Young Children.
I’m also a busy Mum of two so I know just how precious and fleeting the early days are! It brings me so much joy to capture your most special moments that I know will be cherished by your family for many years to come!
I am so excited you are considering me to be a part of your family's journey...it would be my honour to capture you and your loved ones.
“I want to create emotive portraits that capture and celebrate your journey into parenthood, your baby's first year...and beyond!”
The studio has an ever-growing range of clothing available for your session. Flowing maternity gowns for mums-to-be from designers such as Mii Estilo, Sew Trendy and the Peppy Studio. For the babies, Angela has handpicked beautiful pieces from Jamie Kay, Mia Joy Studio and Handmade by Lululu.
Hair + Makeup
Angela works with a selection of Wellington's best professional mobile makeup artists to ensure you look your best and feel confident in front of the camera.
Rustic wooden props, organic wooly layers, textured wraps and vintage inspired rompers are sourced locally and internationally for your session.
Stunning custom box sets, quality canvases and beautiful matted albums are all available to purchase, as well as your digital files for archiving. Leave the studio with your precious memories preserved forever, to be handed down for generations to come.
Rest assured I take my job working with these precious little people very seriously - I am fully vaccinated as per the Ministry of Health's Immunisation Schedule, plus I keep up to date with my Whooping Cough and Influenza Vaccinations as needed. I also hold a current NZQA First Aid Certificate for Young Children.
Posing a newborn is an art, and I take pride in my knowledge of newborns and handling baby safely at all times. Posing takes time and you cannot rush. I will gently attempt each pose with your baby - but at the end of the day, they are the boss and will let me know if they do not want to be posed a certain way. If this is the case, I will move on to the next pose. I will never ever force a baby into a pose just to get "the shot".
There are certain poses your baby will always be supported in by either myself or my assistant, and it is only through the magic of Photoshop that these poses can be achieved safely.
If you have any questions about baby safety - I encourage you to ask! I want you to feel 100% confident in your choice of a newborn photographer!
