How does the Mother's Day Family Photography Experience work?

Pre-session Consultation

We'll organise a pre-consultation phone call or a visit to the studio where we can chat about you, your family and your 'Together Again' Photography session.  It's super important for me to find out what you love and the style of artwork you want created. We'll also sort out details such as clothing and the perfect location for you!

Viewing & Design Session

A few weeks after your photography session you’ll come to the studio to view your beautiful images in a cinematic slideshow.  During the session you can order any Artwork products you would love to purchase for your home or as gifts for loved ones. However - There is NO obligation to make an order. 

Your Photography Session

On your photo session day we will see you at the studio or at our location meeting spot.  Your photography experience with us will be relaxed and fun. No stress, just FUN, FUN FUN! 

Together we will create stunning images which tell the unique story of your family right now. 

5x7in Fine Art Print & $100 Print Credit

As a thank you for your time, you will receive a matted 5x7inch Fine Art print and $100 Print Credit to use towards further beautiful artworks of your family.  Believe me, it will be hard to choose!

After your viewing and ordering session you can sit back and relax knowing your  artwork/s you have ordered will be professionally edited and crafted at the highest artisan quality just for you. 

I guarantee you will LOVE it!

Hey there! 

I'm Maria

photographer - mother - teacher -business owner - cat lover - traveller - creative

I have two children aged 10 and 12

Two cats, 4 budgies and a dog called Barry.

Visual art has always been a driving force in my life. To be able to use and share this passion with others, bring them joy everyday through images of their family, is truly amazing.  I consider myself very lucky to love what I do, and to be able to connect with such a wide range of beautiful families.

 What other people say....

Family portrait outdoors in Christchurch, NZ_edited.jpg

Maria was amazing!!! She was fun to work with and created a relaxed, more than pleasant environment.... she got the most amazing photos of our family. I love that our images show our personalities and our family just looks incredible. The way the light falls in the background has made our shots more than just photos but amazing artworks. Loved working with Maria from start to finish! And I now have the most amazing collection of family photos - better than I ever imagined!!

Having never had a family portrait session previously, we were initially very nervous about the process.

Thanks to Maria’s easy manner and professionalism it turned out to be enjoyable and rewarding.  The final images are of an outstanding quality and beautifully presented. We could not recommend Maria more highly.
