Hi I'm Justine, Your Newborn Photographer

I tell your story, your way

Tell me about your hopes and dreams, about the photos you want to adorn your home with.

A series of baby's cute facials in the hallway, a family cuddle pile printed large and hung in the lounge? 

Soft, formal, candid, relaxed, close, emotive, bright, whimsical, humorous, serious.

Mama, you want your heart in your photos.

I'm here for it.


Every photo tells a story.

Sometimes the story you want to tell is raw and emotive, real and gritty.

Sometimes you want to celebrate an event or milestone in your lives creatively with joy and wonder, or for everyone to be dressed up for a change!

I can create the images you hope for, either in the comfortable and spacious studio at Taieri Mouth, which has a range of props and outfits, or in the comfort of your home.

I work at a relaxed, unhurried pace, allowing plenty of time for feeding, nappy changes and comforting. Baby is in someone's arms most of the time.

I see you

Because I've been you.

Family is everything

Words from the heart

"I highly recommend Bright Eyes Photography for your maternity and newborn photos! Not only is Justine incredibly talented but she made the whole experience so calm and enjoyable. Justine has such a warm and kind manner and it instantly puts you at ease… resulting in stunning photos to treasure forever! I will also always be grateful for how gentle and caring Justine was when working with our 2 week old baby. She truly is a baby whisperer because our wee girl was calm the whole session! Thank you Justine for capturing such beautiful memories of our family!" ​ Shannon - Dunedin
