“When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.”

I'm Chryseis Vivienne Phillips, your photographer.  Together, let's plan a unique own photography experience for your family and create beautiful, high-quality heirloom pieces that will be loved and cherished for many years.

I have been a photographer since 2006. I have covered a lot of genres but I enjoy capturing the personalities of children, and the love shared by family the most.

My style is relaxed, natural, and fun. I prefer candid, unposed, documentary-style images to formal ones. I am, however, happy to provide you with some guidance, if needed.

Over the years, my experiences have made me believe in the following, and these are reflected in the way I do photography:

  • Quality over quantity - a small selection of high quality images is better than a large collection of mediocre ones,

  • Prints are better than pixels - images are best appreciated when these are on your wall, and not the wallpaper on your phone or computer,

  • Celebrate your whanau - whether its family by blood or by choice, celebrate your relationship with  them

I am here to create tangible memories of your life, and of your whanau. Please feel free to call, I'd love  to chat. 

"The memories we make with our family is everything."

Kind regards,
