J & I - Dunedin Studio Newborn Session

Jemma Stanley

This gorgeous family of 4 joined me in the studio in April when Jack was 3 weeks old - the perfect age for a newborn session! 5-21 days is ideal, as babies are nice and sleepy (well, when they're co-operating of course!) and it's the safest age to photograph using props like this gorgeous little bed.

The perfect little family!

Oamaru, Otago Train Station Family Photography Session {Dunedin Photographer}

Jemma Stanley

I had the pleasure of driving up to Oamaru and photographing this wonderful family + their family visiting from America at their own home, on the train out to the penguin colony, and finally a behind the scenes peek into the train yard - an amazing perk of being a train conductor! 

While I am usually in the studio photographing babies, I love getting out into the world every now and then, especially when it means hanging out with lovely people and driving to the picturesque Oamaru.

This was such a special session as this family is separated by thousands of miles ordinarily, so it was an honour to capture this special reunion.  

I am always available to travel within the Otago region for photo sessions, and often travel to Auckland to see my family, so if you are outside of Dunedin, there's always a possibility you can still book in with me! 

Love always, Jemma

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)

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

Ethan

Jemma Stanley

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
