Thanks for stopping by.  

I am the owner and photographer of Images naturally Photography. I am based in Whangarei, Northland where I have a lovely private studio set among lots of trees, paddocks and stone walls. This is the perfect space to capture beautiful natural relaxed images that you will treasure for a lifetime. 

I love photographing! I love the infinite possibilities of what babies and children will do, I love highlighting their personalities and capturing the love of a family. 

I specialise in photographing Newborn babies and Maternity, as well as young babies/ children and families.

I thoroughly enjoy the creative process of working with clients in my Maungatapere studio to create something truly unique and special just for you. And I also enjoy the challenge of photographing outdoors - the lighting is always changing (as is the wind!) so you never end up with the same photos as someone else. Beach photography is a real favourite of mine, especially Sunset Beach Photography. We are blessed around Whangarei to have so many options for photography locations. 

I am a NZ qualified Midwife and photographer, and I am passionate about capturing those fleeting moments in your life that are so special that you want to be able to look back on them in the years to come..... reminisce .... and smile.  

As a midwife you can be assured that I know how to safely handle your precious baby and how to pose them without placing any undue strain on their delicate ligaments. Newborn photography is an art, and as such is a very specialised art-form.... keeping baby happy, relaxed, asleep and safe takes experience, patience and love.

I would love to work with you!
