When photographing families, I love to keep things light & easy so you all feel relaxed and enjoy your family time together. I will guide you through the whole thing so you don't have to worry about knowing how to pose. I focus on the natural connections you share with your family but always include some great, natural looking posed shots that you will love to have on your wall.

After your session, I don't leave you to work out what to do with your images, on your own. I am an expert at album design and sorting out photos for print. So I am here to help if you want to invest in and album, a large wall collage or just a few prints for your desktop. 

I'd love to be your Whangarei photographer, so get in touch if you have any questions or would like to see if I have your date available.

Your Relaxed,  Fun-Loving  Family Portrait Photographer



am so excited you're here. Thanks for stopping by to take a look around. I have been capturing moments in time, professionally for families (and businesses) in Whangarei, for over 5 years.


Say Hello

A snapshot into my life

1 / 4

I love a walk on the beach in any weather and we're so lucky that we are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches in Northland.

My happy place for relaxing is the beautiful Taupo Bay in the Far North. We have been holidaying there as a family for over 40 years! I took these dolphin photos there a couple of years ago when they paid us a visit. My teens still talk about how magical this experience was.

I love music and musical theatre and have had the pleasure of photographing both Opera North & Whangarei Theatre Company (WTC) productions for over 10 years as our daughters have both done classical singing training from when they were little.

The annual Classics in the Cove and Opera in the Garden events, and the WTC production of Phantom of the Opera are all on my all time favourites list.

I love getting outside to explore the walking and cycling tracks we have around the north.

Although I am not too keen on the the mountain biking tracks - I prefer to stay on the flats!!

My husband and I met on our OE in a London Pub watching the All Blacks. So it's fair to say travelling has always played a big part in our lives.

Slightly harder to gallivant around the world once kids came along and obviously Covid also made a big dent in travel plans too. Like lots of Kiwis though, we took the opportunity when we could to get out and about around our own beautiful country.

My Favorite Things

We have the most beautiful family photos thanks to Tracey.

Tracey's support through the whole process is professional and incredibly helpful.

Tracey is warm and friendly and my 4 year old son enjoyed coming up with some cheeky antics with Tracey to get some fun photos.

I highly recommend Tracey and proudly display our photos on the walls of our house.



Oh I am bawling my eyes out over here Tracey. How am I meant to pick when you've done such an incredible job. I am so so thankful, you have no idea how precious these are!

The photos speak for themselves but your talent goes beyond measure, an absolute star! Your patience and gentle nature with the kids was incredible.

With the recent unfortunate changes in our world, these photos are something we can treasure forever - something to make our house a home.



We had such a lovely evening at the beach with Tracey.

She made us feel relaxed and at ease and went with the flow to capture some precious moments for us.

Tracey really appreciates all the little things that make family life so special and goes above and beyond to find out a bit about your family.

The gorgeous dress was so fun to wear.

I would definitely recommend Tracey, thank you you so much for our beautiful photos.



We have had the best experience with Tracey taking photos of our family... from the initial consultation right through to selecting which photos to choose and how to display them, she guided us through with her beautiful manner, using her knowledge and experience along with patience (which was needed with me! 😂)

We are so very happy with the final result and would highly recommend her.

Thank you Tracey ❤️

They say never work with Kids or animals, but Tracey has proved she can do both, with amazing results and memories!

An hour on the beach spending time with my family, with Tracey capturing every moment. Tracey made it fun and easy, directing our camera shy family, with fantastic images to treasure.

I would recommend Tracey to everyone, she does a wonderful job in capturing the essence and thinks about every aspect of a photograph - from styling to destination to posing - you just need to follow her lead and smile, she'll do the rest - with amazing photos to keep ❤️

Thank you Tracey for making me feel like a Princess in the beautiful dress you have for your photoshoots, and for our beautiful family photos 💕

Tracey is efficient, easy to talk with and relaxed.

Her pre photo session guidance and instructions throughout the photo shoot produced a great product.

We were wonderfully managed - humans and groomed dog alike -in the beachy outdoors and everyone really enjoyed our experience.

It’s not easy getting all eyes focused on the camera with seagulls and waves to be caught in the fading evening light! But Tracey did it ….. nailed it … and has produced for us a beautiful 10 photo montage frame.

Thanks heaps Tracey - love your work!



Tracey is a superstar at what she does!

My husband and I are really awkward people and Tracey made it so easy for us to relax and have fun with it. Our daughter was very active during the whole photo shoot and Tracey just went with it and managed get some amazing photos of us all!

We are so happy with our photos they’re are absolutely beautiful. Would highly recommend.





We had such a great experience with Tracey.

Not only are the photos she took of our family absolutely gorgeous, but her professionalism and communication were outstanding from beginning to end.

We couldn't be happier!

Tracey is an absolute gem!

She was so calm and relaxed when taking our family photos that the kids were super chill in front of the camera. She did an amazing job of wrangling 3 under 9 years, and was able to go with the flow even thru tantrums and tears from falling over. The photos she took really captured the love and craziness of our wee family.

She even took some stunning couple pics of me and my husband that I adore I would recommend Tracey in a heartbeat. Kids grow so fast; if you are considering getting some family photos done with Tracey, please do it!!.

Thank you Tracey for such an amazing photoshoot. You understood what we were after! You manged to capture the magic for us even though the skies didn’t deliver the sunset light we would have liked. It really didn’t matter in the end because the album is absolutely stunning.

Tracey was amazing to work with during the shoot and in the month afterwards while I procrastinated and took my time over all the amazing photos to choose from!! You made the process easy for me and we couldn’t be more over the moon with our keepsake album.

Thanks again and I can highly recommend working with Tracey Morris Photography.

You Deserve the best

Now that you've met me and my family, let me be there for you and yours!

As someone who has always felt really awkward in front of the camera, I have gone to great lengths to develop a way of photographing your family that gets natural, relaxed smiles and genuine expressions from you all - from busy toddler to grumpy teens! 

If you'd love fresh, natural & connected images of you and your family, I'd love to hear from you.
