Every day moments pass that we find delight us but have difficulty remembering.
Our aim is to show those wonderful moments in timeless portraits - to celebrate every stage of your life with natural, understated photography that reflects you and your family at this moment of time.
... dad’s tender touch on baby’s smooth skin .... your child’s cheeky grin ... the everlasting love between brothers and sisters ... all captured in baby, child and family photos.
Whether it is a series of fine art prints, a contemporary floating acrylic or a custom artwork on canvas
, we can create a lasting piece of art of you and your loved ones.
We also offer gift vouchers which make a lovely gift for the parents of a new born baby. Click here

"Wow! What great photos! I was so relieved to find a photographer who was able to help me feel relaxed enough to overcome my fear of cameras, with amazing results. The preparation, advice, presentation, choice of location and extremely prompt service were all faultless. I have no hesitation in recommending Ursula and the red photo box
to anyone seeking a professional photographic experience and a top quality product."
Jeanette Elley, Auckland
So how does the red photo box work?
We meet with you to discuss your needs, tastes, preferences and interests for your baby, child or family photos.
We also talk about your favourite locations, suggested wardrobe and possible props such as toys or special heirlooms in the case of babies and children.
There is no charge for this consultation.
This is where we arrange all the details of Your Photo Shoot and pre-payment of the $195 Photo Shoot booking fee.
Your Photo Shoot
We want to capture the real you!
We endeavour to make the whole experience as comfortable and fun as possible.
Allow around an hour and there is no limit to the number of photos we take during the shoot.
Your Preview Session
Your chance to see the amazing photos taken at Your Photo Shoot.
We get together for the viewing and there you make the selections for your Fine Art Portraits. You can order just one or a package and we have a range of options
depending on the look you want to achieve in your home.
We can also use computer simulation software so you can visage what a portrait will look like on different walls in your home.
Unique Portraits created for forever
We personally create your finished artwork including any creative or design work, enhancements, conversions to black and white and retouching, if required.
Our Fine Art Portraits are created in a professional photographic lab using archival materials and our canvas artworks are handmade on photographic fine art canvas and finished with a veneer which ensures your portraits are of the utmost quality and will last for generations to come.
We can also organise for your prints to be framed so they are ready to hang on the wall. Find out more about our framing options.
When it is all ready, we deliver your portraits to you in person.
