BOHO VIBES in late summer
SENSATIONAL IN SAGE
CASUAL & CHILLED
Life with kids is super busy and I know that often, the last thing you feel like doing is dressing up and having family portraits done.
I completely get it, I've been there too! But take it from someone who's kids have just left home, one day those photos you are in with the kids, will mean more to you than any other "thing" you have.
Let me help you get these moments captured and transform them into beautiful frames for your wall. Precious memories that will bring a smile to your face every time you pass them. From beautiful dresses for you to wear, through to personal guidance on what everyone else will wear, a fully guided session at the beach and help to choose and frame your favourites, I will be there every step of the way to help you get it done.

Take a look through the following galleries to see how your family portraits could look.
STUNNING ALBUMS & FRAMES
DISPLAY YOUR MEMORIES
Enjoy your photos every day in a stunning collage frame or in a gallery style arrangement on the wall. And if you love all your photos, let's create a stunning album so you can always look back on them with pleasure.
Here's a few ideas of what we can create for you to enjoy your photos every day.
playtime at the beach
FAMILIES AT THE BEACH
The beach is the perfect place for family photos regardless of what age your kids are. From tots to teens everyone seems to relax when their toes hit the sand.
I love to shoot at Matapouri, Ocean Beach, Patau North or Waipu Cove, but we can shoot wherever your happy place is.
casual & chilled
Don't forget that older kids love the beach too and just like the rest of us, I find they are so much more relaxed there! The Cross family opted for a cool and casual denim look which matched their family vibe to a tee!
From this session, the Cross family chose a beautiful 10 image Wall Collage and we had it framed in a light, natural oak to really show off the beachy images.
BOHO VIBES IN LATE SUMMER
The Bowden family and their three gorgeous boys spent an energetic hour on the beach at Matapouri for their family session. This boho dress from my client wardrobe had Deborah feeling and looking just beautiful.
With 3 very active kids, we had a ball with the kids climbing, exploring and having fun with Mum and Dad to create special memories for their album.
SENSATIONAL IN SAGE
Katherine is wearing a gorgeous vintage inspired dress with romantic poet sleeves, from my client wardrobe for her family's session.
It was the perfect way to add just a little bit of romance into their photos for a Mum who is usually surrounded by crazy, loud and energetic boys.
In an age where we can capture every moment on our phone, professional photos give you something your phone just can't! And that is beautiful, natural photos with you in them!
As a Mum who takes all the family photos, you probably have lots with your other half and of your kids. But how will your children know that Mum was there too, if you are never in the photos? I love to capture beautiful natural photos of you and your family together, that you will love to print in an album or frame on the wall so you can enjoy them for many years to come. Treat yourself and your family today, before the next stage of childhood passes you by.
HOLD ON TO THE TINY MOMENTS AND CHERISH EVERY LITTLE SNUGGLE...THEY GROW UP SO FAST!

Then we will book in our Zoom planning session. This is a quick 30 min session to answer any questions you have and chat about what you are all going to wear and wear we are going to photograph you all.
We'll talk about what you would like to do with your images once we have captured them and make a plan around which package suits you best.
For busy Mums, I have found this quick consult saves heaps of time for you to get the family ready. It means you can ask all your questions at once and we can get wardrobe sorted for everyone too!

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.
CLAIRE + USMAN
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.
MORGAN & HER BABIES
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.
DEBORAH & HER BOYS
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 ❤️
JENNie & her teen family
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 💕
kylie & HER Boys
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!
JENNY & FAMILY
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.

KYLA & FAMILY
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.
