Jemma Stanley

In December I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous little family of four in the studio. Monty was such a chilled out dog and obviously loves his new brother Zach very much!

Alana - Dunedin Maternity Session

Jemma Stanley

Forgive me as I spend the next little while fixing this neglected blog - a few of these sessions are from 2017, whoops! 

The lovely Alana and her daughter visited me last year to celebrate their shortly-arriving new family member. I love photographing maternity with a sibling because you can tell how excited they are for the new baby to arrive!

Amy Cope Newborn Workshop - Baby Boy

Jemma Stanley

Late last year I had the pleasure of being taught under Amy, who is one of Auckland's top award-winning newborn photographers. My mentoring session was shared with another two local photographers, and we spent half the day photographing this gorgeous little guy together. 

Photography is the sort of art that is constantly evolving, and working with babies involves a lot of knowledge regarding health and safety, so continuing my education is so important to me. I would highly recommend Amy as a mentor to any other photographers, and I am positive my experience working with her will improve my work and newborn safety knowledge. Below are some of the images I captured of our second model of the day!


Note - all of these images were set up and posed by the talented Amy Cope of Amy Cope Photography (Auckland)


Love always, Jemma xx

A Day In The Life - Zani Family

Jemma Stanley

In a new kind of session that I had never done before, I followed this gorgeous family for the entire day. From the second they woke up to their bedtime stories, this family now has an entire special day of their lives frozen in time - forever. To see a behind the scenes video and testimony of the day, please check out the video I made of the day.

Please enjoy a snippet of their gallery, and see the day as it unfolded. This is truly a special type of family photography session and I would love to do more of them!

Much love, Jemma xx

Aadya Maternity, Newborn and Family Sessions - North Shore Baby Photography

Jemma Stanley

I had the privilege of photographing this beautiful family not once but three times! She's a healthy little girl and has been spending time with her grandparents who flew all the way from India to see her. So much love for this family of three :)

Laksh Maternity, Newborn & Family Photography

Jemma Stanley

I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous little family three times, at the very end of Bharani's pregnancy (actually, three days before Laksh was born!), for his newborn session at five days old, and at one month with visiting family. It's been a wonderful few months getting to know these guys and watching little Laksh grow so quickly, I look forward to seeing them again when he's a little older!

With love, Jemma

I had the pleasure of photographing Ethan and his wonderful parents recently, here are my favourites from their gallery. Look at those lips!  
I got another cuddle today when they came in to see their photos for the first time, it's always an emotional experience!

With love, Jemma

Sam & Olivia

Jemma Stanley

Back in June I was lucky enough to meet these two and capture their beautiful story. They were enjoying the calm before the storm a month before Sam's due date. I know Olivia is going to be the best big sister any boy could ask for!
