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 relocated permanently to Dunedin in 2017 with all my worldly belongings, my husband and our sphynx cat

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. It's been a wonderful first four years in business and I have met some truly amazing people along the way, many of whom I now consider good friends

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
