A LITTLE ABOUT ANGELA...
Owner / Photographer
I am a mother of two young boys, who definitely keep me and my husband on our toes! I’m and accredited member of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography, and have been in business since 2013. I love photographing family milestones - from maternity, newborn and beyond. Since I started working in this industry, I've been busy photographing, studying, and educating myself. I pride myself in being highly experienced in handling and soothing newborns, and in capturing those first smiles and giggles of growing tots. I love babies of all ages: their squishy little toes, sweet smiles, and tiny button noses.
I love to keep your child as the star of images, so you won't find too much in the way of extra props and fuss in my images. Touches of texture and soft pops of colour are my thing. They will be timeless artwork that will be treasured for years to come.
I'm a firm believer in getting everyone in front of the camera, and creating special images that your children will treasure as they grow older. I hate being in front of the camera myself, and have to push down all those thoughts of "oh I'm too fat for photos", or "my hair doesn't look right" or "I look too tired", and get in frame with my two gorgeous boys every now and then too. Because at the end of the day, they don't see any of that - they just see mum. And one day, they will look back on our images and be able to see the love - and that is exactly how I want them to remember me. So I challenge you all to do the same - get in the frame, make lasting photographic memories for your children. They'll thank you for it in years to come.

I've been photographing families & babies for 8 years in South Africa and I'm so excited to be working in Christchurch now with Angela. I'll be shooting all On-Location shoots and Pop-in events. I love to photograph the special relationships between family members in a natural, heartfelt way. I look forward to creating genuine and candid portraits with you.
