Kim - Photographer 

Kim The Portrait Studio-689-624

When my son was born in 2013, I discovered what love really meant.  When I held him that very first time and looked down into his massive, brown and knowing eyes, my heart expanded so much that it scared me it would burst with love.  I couldn’t get enough of his smell, of the feel of his little body in my arms, of just staring at him and watching every tiny movement and marvelling that somehow we had made this little guy and that he was actually OURS to KEEP!

It is this love and this understanding of what it is to be a parent that I bring to every session I photograph.  Meeting brand new parents, capturing that love, that newness, that intoxicating new-baby-sweetness - this is my absolute passion.  

My aim as a photographer is record the journey of your newborn, your baby as they grow and your family as it expands.  My hope is that these portraits become your heirlooms, that every photograph of each little detail, moment, and emotion becomes a precious memory not only for you as a parent, but for your family as they grow and their stories begin to unfold.

The Studio 

Situated in beautiful Bishopdale we are upstairs in a central block of shops on Farrington Ave and have two large car parks within a few metres from the studio. 

Bathed in natural light, our studio offers the perfect setting for your portraits meaning we have no need for harsh, distracting flash or studio lights. This ensures your session is relaxing and calm, while the soft light is flattering for all skin types. 

We want you to feel at home here, so we have designed the studio and gallery room to be comfortable and intimate, offering refreshments &  freshly-made coffee, also a baby change table, and separate room for breast-feeding if desired.
