Family Photos at Home - Wellington NZ

If you’re thinking about updating your family photos, have you considered using your home as the location? I always feel extremely grateful that I get to meet so many families and take their pictures. Being invited into their personal space brings another element into the session. If you have children who are a little camera shy and reluctant, being in their own environment could be an opportunity for them to feel confident and enjoy having their photo taken.

When Candice invited me into their home, everywhere I looked was something out of a magazine. I love the way they have styled the rooms! Absolute goals. Willis thought it was great because he could show me all of his toys and jump on the bed with Mum.

If you have a park or a playground near your home, this is another great location for photos with children. We all jumped in the car and headed to the park where we could run around with their dog.

Self Empowerment and Stepping out of your Comfort Zone - Zsofi Portraits

When Zsofi contacted me a couple of months back I felt connected to her ideas straight away. I love meeting other women who live by similar beliefs as myself. I’m also a strong believer in feeling inspired by other woman and their courage. It feels great lifting one another up, in a world full of competition and comparison, let’s be stronger together.

I caught up with Zsofi again after our shoot to find out how she felt about the experience and what she learnt from it. I hope this resonates with my followers in some way or form. I’d love to inspire you to feel more confident when it comes to having your photo taken because the process can be more than just a pretty picture!

What made you interested in having a photo shoot with Jaymee?

I've been playing with the idea for a while. It came from me recently shifting my perspective from the external world to inward. I have recognised an ultimate power inside of myself and as a result stepped into my own authority, leading a life from this space - The Source.

I wanted a visual representation of this, something to cherish from an aesthetic point of view. I am also prepping to launch my own business soon, which will be based on woman empowerment and connecting back to this Source, through some mentorship, coaching and doula work. I needed nice pictures of me that I can use for my branding.

Did it teach you anything?

OMG yes! As per my above thoughts, it is clear that my recent recognition of my self as a powerful Source and authority of my life is a deeply spiritual experience. It is also fairly new, which means that my life is not fully drenched in its juiciness yet. It's not yet dripping off my chin.

I need to connect the spiritual aspect of it to the physical, embodying ALL OF IT, ALL OF THE TIME. This photoshoot experience shone light to the gap. That even though I know this truth in my mind and heart, I need to bring it into my body.

During the photoshoot I was able to practice this. I was more uncomfortable at the start than I thought I would be, and this recognition was very humbling. Throughout the session I was able to practice what I potentially preach - embodiment of the true self. I have been practising radically ever since and want to make these photo sessions a regular occurrence.

What did you gain from this experience?

I gained a new perspective for embodied self-love. I gained a stronger connection to my body. I gained more access to my inner power and was reminded that it's crucial that we remain humble and always always open to the process to allow for growth to happen. I gained new appreciation for my visual appearance, and an ultimate acceptance of my own beauty.

Breaker Bay Maternity Shoot - Belen and Jeremy

Pregnancy is one of the biggest life changing experiences you will go through. It’s amazing that our bodies can grow and nurture new life. Like everything in life, pregnancy comes with its own challenges which is why I love maternity shoots. This is a chance to embrace all of those emotions and document this exciting time with your partner. It’s also empowering, baby bumps are so beautiful.

Belen and Jeremy chose Breaker Bay as their location for their maternity shoot. With the sun starting to set the atmosphere was very relaxed and intimate. I’m so excited to be sharing these photos with you, they make my heart go eeehk!

Waihoanga Lodge Otaki - Yuming and Bevan's wedding

Yuming and Bevan loved the idea of an outdoor wedding surrounded by nature. Waihoanga Lodge in Otaki was the perfect venue for making this happen.

The day started off with some rain which didn’t bother anyone. I loved the relaxed and easy going atmosphere. Yuming looked so beautiful in her red dress! Take a look.

Peggy's Graduation Shoot - Wellington

Graduating from your studies can be one of the most memorable moments in your life. It’s a time to celebrate with your friends and family, and a time to reflect on all of your achievements.

Peggy and her family traveled to Wellington for her graduation ceremony. During the time they were here they wanted to document this occasion and explore the lower part of the North Island. We met up on the coast for a grad shoot.
