ART THAT CAPTURES THE REAL & HEARTFELT STORY OF YOUR FAMILY
GIVE YOUR FAMILY A GIFT THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME
Do you have family photos that include you?
Yes, I'm talking to YOU here mum (or dad).
I know you love your kids to bits, and all the pictures of them, but - trust me on this one - when your kids are older (or heaven forbid all grown up) they are going to be looking for the pictures that include you!
Don't wait until it's too late . . .
your family experience
ALL ABOUT THE FEELS! (no
There's a truckload of photogs out there that can take a great photo of how you all look - but that's a pretty shallow representation of your family.
This is for you if you love portraits that are real, raw and full of connection, expression and emotion.
Let's show what it FEELS like to be in your family!
GET YOUR FAMILY STORY ON DISPLAY - AS ART
Hands up if you've got some photos you've been meaning to print (from, ummmm . . . 2 years ago).
The magic doesn't happen until you get your absolute bangers up on the wall, because then you've got 10 years (or more) of enjoyment and smiles coming your way.
Oh - and BTW - I'm not talking about the big, cheesy family photo over the couch (cringe) - we're going to get way more contemporary, artistic and creative with your wall art.
BRING YOUR TWEENS, TEENS & GROWN-UP KIDS
Family portraits aren't just for babies and toddlers (although they're pretty cool too).
You would not believe how many parents tell me they kept meaning to do this (and it wasn't until the reality hit that their oldest was packing up to leave home that they realised it was now or never).
Plus you might be surprised at how cooperative teens can be when they see some cool shots on the back of the camera!
FOUR-LEGGED FRIENDS INVITED
Don't leave everybody's favourite family member at home!
Dogs of all breeds, shapes sizes and personalities are welcome to join the fun.
Worried that your dog isn't that well-behaved? Don't be. I'm not going to lie - obedient dogs make my life easier, but I can handle the crazies (ahem, full-of-beans furbabies) too.
STRESS-FREE NEWBORN & BABY SESSIONS IN YOUR OWN HOME
Take all the stress out of newborn and baby photography by having your session in your own home!
Babies don't belong in baskets, boxes or other studio props - they belong in your arms (and that's exactly where I'll photograph them).
Having a new baby in the house is such a special time in your life, so this is your opportunity to capture the raw and beautiful real-ness of your new family.
When we saw our photos for the first time we were blown away.
We can't believe how well Edith managed to capture everyone's personalities
Normally our family shy away from having photos taken but Edith put everyone a ease and actually made the shoot enjoyable - even with two kids and a dog.

HEY, I'M EDITH, YOUR DUNEDIN FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
I'm so glad that you've landed here, because that means you're probably thinking about getting some family portraits, right?
To me, family portraits aren't just photos! They're a family treasure.
And once those portraits are printed they become a family treasure that will last a lifetime and beyond.
OVER 100 DUNEDIN FAMILIES PHOTOGRAPHED BY ME
I've photographed more than 100 families in Dunedin and I've never once asked anyone to smile!
If you're worried because you're the type that feels all stiff and awkward in front of the camera, don't be.
I've totally got you. Take a look at any picture on my website and I can guarantee that mum (or dad) told me they felt exactly the same way - and do they look uncomfortable? I don't think so.
Every time I look at this it brings tears of love and happiness to my eyes.
I love it! It's so beautiful (and I never say that about pics of myself).
Thank you so much.
what it costs
SESSION FEE: 150
The session fee is for your family portrait session (it does not include any artworks, prints or digitals).
You can book your session online (so easy peasy) or get in touch if you have questions.
ONLY BUY WHAT YOU LOVE
After your session we'll get back together for your personal viewing and ordering session which is when you choose what you would like to buy.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO SPEND
It wouldn't be fair if I didn't tell you that you're probably going to love way more than you think you will!
Collections start at 990. Most families spend an average between 950 and 1550, and take home a beautiful artwork to go on display as well as have all their digital files.
LIFE IS BUSY! SO I DO IT ALL FOR YOU
If you want the magic you need to get your favourite portraits printed and on display but if you're anything like me you might have all the best intentions in the world, but . . . . life gets in the way, right.
Your experience ends with you hanging your family artwork on the wall, where you (and the kids) are going to look at it and smile. Every. Single. Day.

inspiration for your family session
Our newborn and family photoshoot with Edith was honestly such a relaxed and enjoyable experience.
She was so calm, put us all at ease and just went with the flow of what our newborn and 5-year-old wanted to do.
The images she captured are absolutely stunning and I'm so grateful to Edith for capturing this special time in our lives.
let's start your experience
THE BEST TIME FOR FAMILY PORTRAITS IS ALWAYS NOW!
Don't miss out on capturing the stage your family is in right now (or wait until your eldest is about to leave home).
Because you can never get this time back!
A year from now you'll only have memories - so let's make them good ones.
I photograph less than 10 sessions per month.
