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!

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!

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

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
