Session info


Photography sessions are held in our studio just north of Levin on Waitarere Beach Road.  Families from Wellington, Palmerston North and all over the Lower North Island travel to our studio for their sessions.

All props, blankets, hats and wraps you see on the website are available to utilise in your pregnancy, newborn or baby session, all you need to bring is your gorgeous little babe, relax on the lounge with a cuppa and enjoy your baby’s photo shoot.

Newborn sessions typically last for around 2 to 3 hours, depending on how hungry or sleepy baby is feeling. Mini sessions are between 1-2 hours. We will never rush your little one as each baby has their own schedule – Our sessions are relaxed and casual.

Please contact Merrin to advise her of your estimated due date and pencil in a session for your pregnancy or baby. Once your baby has arrived, we can lock in a convenient date and time for your newborn baby’s portraits.

Merrin loves photographing babies and always ensures everything is perfect for your photographs. She will retouch every image carefully one by one and has the very best equipment and programs to ensure the end result is of a very high fine art standard.

For older children, Merrin’s Fine Art child portraiture has breath taking results of children done in a timeless style that will be treasured for the rest of your child’s life and generations to come. Merrin has an eye for this type of work making sure every little bit of each image demands perfection. Merrin is a qualified Senior Hair stylist and worked in this profession in the city and overseas for more than 10 years before becoming a photographer. This combination of skills sets her apart as she is able to deliver the full service of hair, light make up and beautiful photography herself. The clothing for these sessions are also vital to the look and style. Merrin has a range of clothing that can be used, more discussion on the clothing will be done during the booking process.
