Welcome to Stanley Studios, a boutique baby, childrens and family portrait studio located in Dunedin, Otago


Hello! My name is Jemma and I am a young creative spirit recently relocated to Dunedin with all my worldly belongings, my husband and our cat

For the most part I am flying solo as a photographer, however I love supporting other photographers by having my studio available to them. At the moment we are working on rebuilding the studio in Dunedin so I am a traveling on-location photographer in the meantime

I began working at sixteen as a means to pay for my first DSLR, and I have never looked back. By eighteen I knew that a 'normal' job was never going to truly fulfill me, so I began to rigorously save to open a studio and become self-employed after studying business at university. The first studio opened in 2015 and it's been improvement after improvement since then

Working with families to create beautiful images that they will cherish for the rest of their lives is a humbling experience for me, and I think it's so important to capture the little ones before they are no longer little. Growing up my mother valued photography tremendously and I adore poring over photo albums when I visit her and seeing my little face still on the wall 20 years later. I see photography as a timeless representation of love and joy that you will be brought back to every time you look at your photos in the years to come
