For ECE Centres

I have been a photographer specialising in portraits  since 2010. 

Families love me because i am a mum with young kids too so I know exactly what silly jokes and tricks make children give us their best smiles. I photograph the kids at play so there is no forced awkward posing – just natural, beautiful & fun photos.

Meet your photographer

Hi, I’m Laura! I am a mum of three – Zoe, Mason & Emily. I was born in Bristol in the UK and have now been in New Zealand for 18 years. 

I absolutely love 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 years of a child’s life. These years pass by so quickly, i want every parent to be able to look back on these moments and re-live these years through the photos that we capture together.

How Does it Work?



We plan the dates to come to your centre. We give you all the posters and information to send out to parents.


Parents register

Parents are then directed to regsiter their child if they would like to be photographed. I only photograph children who are registered, this is so that we have consent & then we know exactly who we need to photograph.



Photo day is so much fun, we bring all our goodies for the best posed play photos of the children.


online galleries

After photo day is finished, we then get busy to get all the photos edited and uploaded into the galleries. Parents will order online through our gallery.



About 2-3 weeks after the gallery close date, the printed photos will be delivered to your centre to distribute.
