So you're looking for a newborn or baby photographer in Wellington, but you don't know what to look for or which one to choose?! I totally get that. So here's what a bunch of delightfully happy clients have had to say about having their photos done with me. Most of these have bought a tear to my eye - I take customer service and satisfaction very seriously!
I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on portraits to all the families I work with. "Jane was a lovely photographer to work with. She made us feel comfortable and went the extra mile to give us the shots we were after. She captured some wonderful moments and I would recommend her to others." - Deborah Tobin, April 2015 "We chose Jane to photograph our young family (mum, dad, 3 year old and 5 month old) after seeing her photos on Facebook and being really impressed by her style and quality. We are so glad we did!! She was happy to accommodate our request to have a very early shoot, and was so kind and patient with our young girls. The area in her backyard where she shoots is just stunning, and it made a great background for our photos. We absolutely loved the final result...watching the photo slideshow made me cry, there were so many good photos and she captured our girls' spirits so well. The hardest part was choosing what to pick! The quality of the photos was fantastic, and her prices very reasonable considering the great quality. We are constantly getting compliments on the photos, and we look forward to using Jane again in the future when we need some new photos taken. - Julie Jordan, March 2015My photoshoot with Jane was a truly enjoyable experience. Upon meeting for the first time I felt like I already knew her, she was very welcoming and when we started the photos I felt very comfortable. As I had a breastfeeding shoot i wasn't sure this was possible but I enjoyed it very much and am so happy I did it as I now have beautiful pictures to remember these beautiful moments with my son. Thanks so much Jane :) - Emma Thorpe, March 2015Jane photographed our twin boys when they were 7 weeks old on an incredibly hot summers day, and we were so nervous about how they would react in the heat. We shouldn't have worried though - Jane was a total pro, she got so many amazing shots in such a short space of time that the boys hardly seemed to notice they were away from home! We are so glad that we have a collection of beautiful photos to treasure and will definitely be booking with Jane again as the boys get older. - Sharon and Nick, March 2015Jane recently photographed my 2 1/2 year old twins and my 8 month old baby. In the same photo session. What an assignment! Thank goodness my mum was with us as my trio were really playing up and I was really doubting we would get one picture that was half decent. How wrong I was. Jane calmly worked with one child at a time and mum and I chased the other two. She was amazing with the kids, heaps of fun and had lots of tricks up her sleeve so that their personalities really shone through in the images. I was blown away when I saw what she had captured. I had written the session off after I walked away that day!!! She's a total professional and you can tell she has a real passion for what she does, her studio, props and backyard are totally geared up for photography.
I would (and already have!) recommend Jane to anyone out there looking to use a photographer. We will be coming back for sure! - Kim Kershaw, March 2015 Happy wedding clients...
Nikki & Samuel, January 2015
Photos are something I treasure, so choosing a Wedding photographer was a big deal to me.
Jane originally popped over to our house for a casual chat. She was great, nice and laid back and the sort of person you feel comfortable around. Instantly thoughts of intimidating photographers were erased. The wedding package we decided to go with included an engagement session, this confirmed our feeling that we would feel at ease and natural being photographed by Jane.
Throughout the wedding planning process Jane was always readily available to answer questions and offer advice. This was hugely appreciated!
On our wedding day Jane went above and beyond, she constantly checked with us that we had all the shots we wanted and she was great at keeping to schedule while still showing great attention to detail. She even snuck us out of reception for some quick sunset photos (my favourite shots). We absolutely love our wedding photos and are so grateful for the amazing job Jane done. We have received lots of compliments about our photos and can't recommend Jane enough. Tamara & Kris, May 2014
"Well where do I start! Jane is and was in a word - AMAZING. Jane was our wedding photographer and from the beginning to end I found Jane really helpful, always happy to catch up and happy to answer my silly questions about timing on the day, or the tiers on the cake or how much booze to order! The engagement shoot made me and my husband feel a lot more comfortable about being in front of the camera, and when the big day came around it was just natural and that was reflected in our beautiful photos.
On the day Jane was there but not there, giggling with the girls, or over sorting out the boys, or just sitting quietly in the background getting those truly unique "in the moment" shots. She helped everything move along on the day and even got my veil on when the bridesmaids were not up to the task! Sam her assistant was fantastic as well, and ran around taking great extra shots and looking after jobs that we had forgotten about.
When we got our photos through I was over the moon with the variety and quality and have had so many comments on them. I felt like I was one of those brides that are all over Pintrest!! Photos were a really important part of our day, and Jane captured the day perfectly with a mix of really natural shots and some classics as well. My whole bridal party mentioned how easy Jane made the photo shoots, and how relaxed they all felt. I will use Jane for any photography I ever need, and have recommended her to friends planning to get married to help remember their special day as well"
