“All Our Babies”

On December 12th I was honoured to document the SANDS Wanganui 10th annual memorial service.

I trucked up to Aramoho cemetery where I failed to find the right spot, remaining a little lost for a full 10min – it’s not even that big a cemetery!

The SANDS committee had erected a gazebo and decorated the tables with really beautiful Christmas decorations. They had scores of balloons and cake to mark the occasion. The service proceeded with a couple of readings, a moving Welsh folk song and the recitation of a list of babies remembered there. All those babies had been stillborn or died in the neo-natal period (that’s about the first 28 days after birth).

After the main of the service had finished attendees were invited to take a balloon each and dedicate it to a baby they had lost. This being done, the balloons were released to the sky. Cake and fizzy drinks followed, and even Santa made an appearance to help decorate the Christmas tree.

Thanks to SANDS volunteers, families who lose babies have someone to lean on and talk to in a time of grief. You can find more information about SANDS at The Wanganui sands team can be contacted at

My Little Button Baby Plan

The Little Button Baby Plan is a combination of 5 portrait sessions that take place in your little one’s first year.

I photograph baby at each precious stage and provide you with a complimentary 5″x7″ print (valued at $46 each, or $230 all together). Additional framed or canvas prints will be available for purchase.

Your investment for this service is $900 – a saving of 10% on separately booked sessions.

Of this, 50% is payable at the newborn session and the remaining 50% is payable at the 6 month session. At the end of the 12 months you’ll have the option to purchase a beautiful, handcrafted album that contains a selection of portraits showcasing your baby’s first year – the ultimate baby album!

The Sessions

NEWBORN – Best before baby is 2 weeks old so I can capture his/her curly, sleepy, newness.

3 MONTHS – Full of smiles and wonder.

6 MONTHS – Sitting and super smiley! – One of my favorite ages.

9 MONTHS – Crawling and discovering a whole new world.

12 MONTHS – Standing, walking, giggling explorers.

This package is wonderful value and an unparalleled way to document your precious bub’s start to life.

Call to book on 021 490 202

N.B. Travel to some areas will incur additional charges.
