fun, natural, unposed

photography for fun-loving, easy-going Dunedin families

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 :-)


Do you want family photography that just reminds you of what the kids looked like?

Or do you want to remember what having children FELT like?


Life isn't static like those traditional, posed family pictures with cheesy smiles.

Real life is full of movement, emotion, colour, connection and place!






If you're ready to experience something different it's super simple to book a shoot with me. I've laid it all out for you with:

3 easy steps

step one:

Take a look at my family portfolio

because it's really important that you like what you see! 

I shoot in a very natural, unposed style. If you're looking for traditional family photos I'm probably not the photographer for you.

But if this contemporary style appeals to you that's awesome! 

step two:

Schedule 15 minutes in my calendar to book a call from me so I can answer all your questions.

Choose a time that works for you.

There's absolutely no obligation to book (I know it's a big decision), but I'd love to chat with you.

step three:

Book your shoot and leave everything else to me.

I'll make sure we've covered everything from how to prepare for your session to choosing the right art works for your home. 

I make it easy and fun to be in front of the camera!

I really want you to LOVE your images so I offer the most outrageous guarantee.

Every day I walk past your beautiful pictures in the hallway and look at them.


I love how they remind me of that special  time was when my boy was just six years old.

looking for something else?

Schedule 15 minutes in my calendar to book a call from me to chat about what sort of headshots you are looking for.

Choose a time that works for you for a no-obligation chat.

Do you want wedding portraits that look natural and have all the feels without the cringe factor?

I'm the photographer for you if you're planning a smaller, more intimate wedding without all the extra fluff.

If you want high quality images of the most important parts of your day (the pictures that will mean the most in 10 years time) then we should chat :-) 

Are you a Dunedin dog lover who is looking for seriously awesome portraits of your four-legged bestie?

Then, first up you need to meet Bear because he's the boss of dog photography (and pretty much everything else) around here!



We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand . . . and melting like a snowflake. Let us use it before it is too late.
