Outdoor Spring Family Session - North Taieri, Dunedin Otago

Jemma Stanley

What a joy it is to be surrounded by the smell of flowers, the chirp of birds, and the love of family

I had a lot of fun photographing this gorgeous family and their very photogenic pets! Did anyone spot the beloved chicken? This session took place on their own lifestyle property in North Taieri, Dunedin, in Spring, and was the perfect backdrop!

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!

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
