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!

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

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
