fun, natural, unposed

Dunedin family photography

Hi, I'm Edith, a family & pet photographer based in Dunedin, New Zealand.

I'm super easy-going and friendly. My photography style is totally natural and all about fun.


If you're worried about your kids standing still and doing what they're told, please don't! The last thing I want is to make you do those naff, traditional poses that feel so stiff and awkward. 

A family shoot with me involves as many hugs, kisses, giggles and squeezes as you can handle. 

If your kids squeal with delight when you throw them up in the air or the idea of using your bed as trampoline would totally light their eyes up - then we are going to get along just fine :-)


Amid the craziness of life I am reminded
my little boy won't be six forever .

Thank you for capturing him as the fun, mischievous and loveable little boy he really is and the love we have for him.

designed for busy families

Have you ever breathed a sigh of relief as you waved goodbye to the last sticky, teary-eyed, cake-filled child at the end of a birthday party only to suddenly realise you were so busy lighting candles you forgot to take pictures?

Life can be a bit like that too. You forget to stop and savour all those love-filled, silly, emotional moments, then next thing you turn around and it's not toddlers, but the 21st party!

I am a mum. I work. I know just how busy life is. That's why I created a customised photography service just for busy families like yours!

But not just any old photography service.

You don't want a traditional, boring family picture up on the wall, because that's not how you are.


But something natural, a little wild and fun - think wind-blown hair, hilltops and sunflare beaches - now you have the perfect spot for that picture!

Booking your shoot is super simple. Follow these three easy steps, because you don't just want to remember what the kids looked like, you want memories of what having children FELT like!

3 easy steps

step one:

step two:

Go take a quick look at my portfolio because it's really important that you like what you see! 

You do. That's awesome. 

Book a call from me today so that we can find out if we are a good fit for each other before you book a shoot.

Want the inside story? Find out what I'm obsessed with, what brew of tea I love best (this is important) or watch me try to shoot an underwater selfie?

step three:

Book your shoot and leave everything else to me.

Prints, frames, albums - all done for you because you know you'll never get round to that last bit yourself!

Edith made us all feel totally at ease.
