WAIKATO, NZ MOTHERHOOD PHOTOGRAPHER


I believe that we all deserve to document this incredible journey of strength, vulnerability and transformation. This journey that makes you and I, a mother. So that’s why I’m here to document your days of maternity, to birth right through to your transition into your new way of life. 


Along the way, I have learned that many mothers believe this too, and they want to capture the fleeting and irreplaceable moments of motherhood, but they struggle with making themselves a priority or feeling overwhelmed with the process. I also understand that getting your photo taken can feel uncomfortable at the best of times. 


So I create an atmosphere that feels safe, comfortable and beautiful. An atmosphere that reminds you that it’s okay to make yourself a priority - to see yourself the way your baby see’s you. So together, we can create images where women are celebrated in the moments they, and their children will treasure forever.

Catherine was my very first photographer ever and for a camera shy person she made me and my family feel so comfortable. Captured the most amazing moments that she’s now my go to and captured many more moments with us. She’s worth it and you will never regret those memories.
