Purely beautiful newborn photos



lifestyle newborn photography

I specialise in lifestyle newborn photography. I make newborn baby photographs that look like you and your sweet baby were just hanging out together at home looking totally gorgeous and loving and someone happened to take photos of you. Sounds good, am I right?!  

I believe newborn babies belong cuddled in their parent’s arms or snuggled up in their bassinet. 

If you would like beautiful newborn photos that tell the story of your baby in a natural, timeless and minimalist manner, then please contact me. I would love to work with you.


thanks for popping in!

I'm Sarah

I am a multi-award-winning Auckland photographer. I specialise in natural, lifestyle newborn photography.

Are you expecting a baby and searching for an Auckland photographer to take beautiful, timeless, natural, newborn photos of your new baby in your own home? 

I believe babies are perfect just as they are. I take organic, simple, gently posed newborn photos where the baby looks like their beautiful self and that express the love of the family.

Frequently asked questions

where will our newborn session be held?

I will photograph your baby in your home. Your home is your new baby’s first home - so it is quite special to be able to include elements of your home in your newborn images. 

When will our newborn session be held? 

Newborn sessions are ideally held in the first 2 weeks after baby is born for the sleeping baby shots. Babies tend to become more unsettled and less sleepy and they also break out in “baby acne” around 2 weeks. 

how far in advance do we need to book?

I take a limited number of sessions per month so it is best to enquire and book your session as early as possible during your pregnancy. If your baby has already arrived, please get in touch as soon as possible and I will do my best! 

Pure, simple, beautiful
