All of the foto package sessions are set up in the comfort and convenience of your own home! 

The studio background is brought to your home and by using natural lighting, hello jofoto, creates a mobile studio. This is a perfect solution to suit the busy lifestyle of mums, dads and bubs. There is no mad rush to get wee bub ready and out the door. No need to worry about parking! At home, both yourselves and wee bub, are in your comfort zone. Please note: travel outside of the Porirua region will incur an extra charge discussed during the booking process.

All packages are provided to you as digital images licensed for personal use. This makes them suitable for DIY prints or to share via social media with friends and family. The best photos are chosen for you so there are no tricky decisions to make.

fotoplay

Parents are drawn to fotoplay as they know they are investing in a colourful and humorous outlook of their bub. It is a reminder that in life it is important to do ‘fun’, be silly and have a laugh. Fotoplay is ideal for babies aged between 4 to 6 months old. During those months babies are often not able to sit confidently on their own. For hello jofoto it is a perfect time to capture on-the-floor baby positions which lend themselves to imaginative (and humorous) ‘outdoor’ play portraits. Props are provided for and BYO props are most welcome, especially if you have a set idea for your baby’s fotoplay portrait. They make hilarious and captivating art-work gifts for friends and family.
hello jofoto has enhanced the fotoplay experience by expanding the provision of memories into the ‘Sweet Dreams’ fotoplay book. This book is personalised for each child and is exclusive to hello jofoto clients:

  • One-of-a-kind story book tailored specifically for your child
  • Make your child the star of the story! An actual storybook able to be read to your child, who is the main character in the book.
  • Future proofing: a perfect book for your child to practice their reading with (during those early school years).
  • A precious keepsake book for parents, friends & family.

fotowow

Through the eyes of mums and dads there are many wow moments in their child’s life… and heading home with wee bubs is definitely a wow realisation!

Wow finally! You get to welcome home your wee bundle of joy! The best time to photograph a newborn is within the first 10 days of birth. This ensures that the baby still has all the newborn features that change after the initial 10 days of life. I understand that timeline may not suit everyone, so once you feel the time is right, I am able to visit you at home to photograph your newborn. Using natural lighting; a warm, sleeping or feeding baby provides stunning photos. I have a set art-style I prefer to use for photographing newborns. Refer to the newborn photomontage in the fotowow gallery and if you like what you see please contact me to make a booking.

fotomix

Paint it, colour it, mix it!
hello jofoto uses candid-style photography to record those spontaneous moments of a child during their messy paint play. This allows parents to savour memories of creativity in the early stages of their child’s development. Fotomix allows for more of a natural setting without the stress of posing and parent/s have a lot of fun participating on the sidelines too! No need to worry about the mess either: the backdrop used is water/paint proof! Non-toxic paint is used and the art canvas is included in the price.
