Hello, I'm Natalie, photographer at Dare to Dream Photography Studio in Hamilton, New Zealand.
I've been photographing newborn babies for over 5 years and I absolutely love it.
Dare to Dream Photography started as a dream for me, and has grown into this wonderful reality where I can do what I love every day – create beautiful art, connect with people and of course, cuddle little babies!
We’ve grown from pushing back the couch to make some space for a newborn session in my living room, to now - a busy studio with make-up artist, editor and social media manager on the team!
Photographing new babies and small children is where my heart is, as well as capturing the love between a parent and child. I look forward to working with you to create beautiful heirloom art for the walls of your home.
Our cosy Karamu photography studio is nestled among the green Pirongia hills, surrounded by picturesque farmland. Only a short drive from central Hamilton, our peaceful location is a pretty, relaxing 20-30 minute drive away.
We have an extensive range of adorable headbands, hats, wraps and props for use during newborn and baby sessions. Drinks and snacks are served, and free Wifi and Netflix are available in the studio for family members while baby is being photographed.
You will find our Hamilton newborn photography studio at 5 Clothier Rd, Karamu, Hamilton, Waikato, New Zealand (by appointment only).
What my wonderful clients are saying
"Natalie was so amazing with our 11 day old boy. Her calm and gentle manner meant that he slept through the entire photoshoot. Her studio was warm and welcoming, and we were made to feel at home. The images she captured are beautiful! I highly recommend Dare to Dream Photography ?"
"We have been using Natalie for several years now. Her friendliness and quality of work is fantastic. We have had family photos and maternity photos and several newborn photoshoots, and Natalie makes them all special and unique.
