Is your Baby the CUTEST little bambino in New Zealand?

Do they have a DELICIOUS smile that instantly melts your heart or a CHEEKY charm that helps them get away with WAY TOO MUCH.  

Or maybe they’re ADVENTUROUS at heart with SERIOUSLY CUTE expressions each time they discover something wondrous and new.

But OH MY they grow up so fast! This really is a GORGEOUS age. Between 3 and 18 months they are SUPER CUTE and choc full of personality … and they haven’t learned to talk back yet

One minute they’re discovering the magic that are their toes and then, in what seems like an instant, they’re walking into the school yard for the first time

Let’s not miss a single moment and capture this FABULOUS chapter of their story!

Meet your photographer

Hi, I’m Laura! I am a mum of two – Zoe and Mason who regularly help me in the studio. I was born in Bristol in the UK and we try to visit family there every few years. I am an introvert and really enjoy working with children. I have been told many times that people love my patience with children – especially the shy ones!

There’s nothing I love more than capturing those first precious weeks of a baby’s life. These weeks pass by so quickly, i want every parent to be able to look back on these moments and re-live these first few weeks through the photos that we capture together.

Lovely Words From Clients

We all had such a great time with Laura, we were nervous about how it was going to go with a 2 week old and she made it such a breeze and got lots of smiles out of our little boy! We’ve just picked up all our prints and we absolutely adore them! 100% would do all over again and recommend to anyone!
Laura took amazing photos of my children. She put them at ease and brought out their personalities. The project she’s doing with heart Kids is awesome. I would definitely recommend Laura Ridley to everyone.
Laura has done our wedding, maternity and newborn photos! They are all INCREDIBLE and we could not be happier with the end product! Highly recommend!
