we make your happiest moments last for a lifetime

Maternity, Newborn, and Family Photo Studio | Parnell, Auckland

We capture and timelessly preserve your journey to new beginnings.

At Photo Hive, we treasure every opportunity we get to be a part of your history. We know you deserve photography that is thoughtfully planned, creatively executed, and beautifully done. That is why we work with you from pregnancy to baby to capture the moments that tell the story for a lifetime.

We specialize in pregnancy/maternity photography, newborn photography, early childhood milestones photography (e.g., 100 days, birthdays, monthly milestones, etc.), family shoots, and celebratory shoots (e.eg., cake smash photoshoots).

Why are we your picture-perfect choice?

We know that the journey from pregnancy through birth to the early years are pure and precious moments that families love to capture, share, and preserve forever. We are not just here to make that happen for your family and loved ones; we are here to do it right and capture every emotion in detail so that you can relive these moments as much as you want without losing the magical feeling.

Julia was professional and lovely to work with. She had great suggestions with theme+props and we had a fantastic experience at our daughter's 3 month old photo session at their lovely studio in Parnell. The results were fantastic. Definitely recommend!

We create five-star experiences

We can proudly say we have learned, mastered, and perfected the art of creative photography, but that’s not the only thing that sets us apart. We are people with families and children, and we know that styling a newborn for pictures requires a steady hand, a soothing voice, a calm demeanor, and a relaxing ambiance. Our approach focuses on discussing the needs and care requirements individually with each family so that we can adequately prepare for every shoot.

Photo Hive did such an amazing job with our family photoshoot. Julia was amazing and easy to work with. She captured so many wonderful memories of the kids which is always difficult with an energetic toddler. She was able to capture wonderful family portraits that we will cherish for years to come. We loved all the photos and highly recommend photohive. Once again thank you Julia and Michael

Perfectly timed shoots are our forte

Not sure when to book or have your maternity shoot or newborn photoshoot? We recommend that our clients make a booking early as our calendar fills up fast. Booking maternity shoots should be planned within 30-35 weeks. For newborn shoots, we recommend that families book weeks before the due date so that together, we can choose the perfect date and day for your baby and make adequate preparation towards the date.
