A Note From the Manager

I have been in the photography industry since 2008. My photography has taken me all over the world and I have been fortunate enough to photograph many of the wonders this world has to offer. However, returning back to New Zealand and starting Photo Hive has been my biggest adventure to date!


We have streamlined our service to offer the very best in quality of work and experience to our customers. As I was describing Photo Hive, recently, to a friend who had not yet had an experience, I was asked “So, how is Photo Hive different from other Photo Studio’s?” My answer, Service + Quality. Here at Photo Hive, no two photo shoots are the same, we are always looking to push the boundaries, to create something that shows off the uniqueness of our customers and tell your family story.


At our core Photo Hive specialise in Newborn & Family Photography, but I think it’s much more then that. A photo session with us is a record of your family, it’s not just about the photo’s but everything that happens in getting them. Our head photographer, Julia Bielan has been creating memories for families for over a decade and was trained by American photographer and mentor Joe Craig in his Missouri studio. “When I am shooting newborns I know that I am capturing something special, these little creations are going to change so much over the coming years and what I do is make sure everyone has a record of where they have been.” Julia says.


I invite you to come with us on a journey to capture your treasured moments and to document your story.

Stay with us—and expect more.
