Newborn Photography Book Project

A book designed to raise funds for the Auckland NeoNatal Trust.

We hope to raise $4,000 for the Neonatal Trust to provide loving support to premature babies and their families.

For your $49 participation fee (which is donated directly to the Neonatal Trust) and you will receive a COMPLIMENTARY one hour Short and Sweet photography session and $100 PRINT CREDIT to put towards anything you may wish to purchase.

Your baby will also feature in a beautiful book called ”Tiny Fingers, Tiny Toes…Celebrating Auckland Babies.”

All sessions will be photographed personally by Amy Cope – Auckland’s premiere newborn and baby photographer.  Parents and older siblings are also welcome to be included in the session.

Measles Information

All staff members are fully vaccinated. 

As you would all be aware, there has been a recent outbreak of Measles in New Zealand, predominantly Auckland.

Amy Cope Photography is taking every precaution to ensure the health of our clients, especially that of our babies and children.

Having four children of my own, I understand from a mothers perspective how vital it is to protect them and everyone around them.

All of our team are fully vaccinated, along with our families.

It always has been our normal process to wash each and every blanket used in a newborn photography session, and after consultation with medical professionals, we are confident that when you come to Amy Cope Photography that our processes in this regard are responsible and appropriate.

As an added precaution we are asking all our clients coming into our studio to please let us know in advance if you have been in contact with someone who has
been infected with the measles virus, or if you are not vaccinated against this virus, in order to ensure the health and well-being of all of those who visit our studio.

We are working with each of our clients to ensure everyone’s protection during this time.

Thank you for your understanding.

Last year on the 30th May 2018 the team at Amy Cope Photography embarked on a journey full of fun, naked baby bums and yummy Mums!  The result is the much-awaited book aptly named:
‘A Mother and her Baby: A Celebration of New Zealand’s Future Leaders’

As many of you know this project started with a request for Mums and their babies to join us for a photography session with award winning Photographer Amy Cope for just $51.  All this money went to the KidsCanNZ Charity. KidsCan helps NZ families by donating food, clothing and much more to support families in hardship.  A total of $4,073 has been donated so far!

Since the first post went up on Facebook, applications came in from families asking to donate, and be part of the book.  So, we got to work… One year, 76 families, loads of laughs, far too many sing-alongs to ‘baby shark’ later we are very proud of the result.

We loved meeting everyone.  We had the opportunity to photograph older babies, twins, and newborns with their beautiful Mums.  Yes, some of those naked photos of babies ended up with surprised wet parents, and sometimes even a code brown!

The older babies enjoyed the antics behind the camera including puppets, songs, dancing and silly faces – whatever worked to get a smile.   Some parents even wanted to take us home to help with entertaining around the clock!

Oh yes, and of course we can’t forget to mention that this book features an award-winning shot also.  This stunning photograph was awarded Bronze in the recent 2019 Iris Awards!

The book is ready for pre-sale NOW!  Don’t miss out, they are $55 each on pre-sale, including freight. After the 31st of August books will be ordered on a one-off basis and will be $80 each.

THREE TIMES THE LOVE – Mother and Baby Book

My Mother and Baby Book that I began midway through the year to raise money for KidsCan is still continuing nicely.  I have had such a fantastic response that I’ve decided to continue it through to next year. If you haven’t had a chance to be part of it yet don’t miss out.  You can find out more info by typing “more info” on my Facebook advert. The advert is pinned to the top of my facebook page if you’d prefer to find it that way. You will then receive a Facebook message with more details.

Being an Auckland baby photography I have photographed hundreds of newborns, but I especially love when I get to photograph three or more babies from the same family. I have had the pleasure of photographing all three of these boys, over the past 5 years (yes each photo above is a different baby, same mum). Their mum has been kind enough to write me a beautiful review:

“Becoming a parent is one the greatest things in the world, holding your newborn child for the first time is a feeling you never forget. Amy has recreated these feelings through her photographs that she has taken of all three of my children. She has created beautiful memories that I will cherish forever.

When I first went to see Amy with my first child, she immediately made us feel welcomed and put us at ease as soon as we walked in the door. We felt right at home as we settled in while she was busy photographing my little one. Her professionalism and ability to settle and keep our baby asleep was amazing. I definitely learnt a few techniques from Amy and have used them for my other two babies.

The way Amy handles the babies is amazing, the way she gently wraps them, places them down and moves them into position is an experience in itself. But the best part is seeing the final photographs, they were absolutely beautiful. Every time I look at them now, it brings a smile to my face. That is why I have come back to Amy, to photograph my other two babies.

I have and will continue to recommend Amy to anyone who wants to capture beautiful lasting memories of their child. Amy, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us creating lasting memories of my three gorgeous babies. You are truly amazing at what you do.”
