Do you have an Earth child?
I’m searching for children aged between 0-16 years who would like to embrace nature through a natural lifestyle photography session. I’m wanting to showcase the ideas around the extreme benefits of interacting in the natural world consistently from a young age.
We are lucky living in New Zealand where nature is all around us and I want you to help me tell the story. The importance to the mental and physical wellbeing which we get from embracing our natural surroundings consistently by building a nature bond that lasts a lifetime.
We are beautiful, loving and vibrant beings and I want to show the beauty of the relationship between children and the earth. As a child I felt that nature gave me a protective hug, I would feel at home and energised from being surrounded by the elements which has lasted into adulthood. These feelings and connections are so important in maintaining a healthy body and mind not only as children but for when we grow into adults.
I am worried that this connection is getting lost with our ever demanding lifestyle with its stresses, strains and constant pinch on our time. It often means that there is little time for a regular walk outdoors in nature with the children. I want to highlight just how important it is to introduce your child consistently to the natural world, strengthening their bond to nature.
I want to tell your stories and change how the media sees our family connections to the living world. Join me in this exciting exploration of Earth children by participating in this project that will transform the importance of introducing this into your children's lives and many others across the modern world.

You’re in good hands! I’ll be directing your child every step of the way so you won’t need to worry about a thing. My job is to help your child feel comfortable and enjoy the experience.

They’re amazing and no detail is too small to make this a perfect day for you both.

During the REVEAL you’ll see all your child's beautiful portraits, choose your complimentary print and have the opportunity to purchase more if you wish. What you purchase is entirely up to you and I’ll show you all the beautiful products available at your consultation.

At the end of this project, I’ll select my favourite image to be included with your story in my EARTH CHILD magazine and gallery exhibition.

You’re welcome to invite all your friends to come and help applaud every child who had the opportunity to be photographed for the project. The initial plan also includes a local news station to broadcast this event or help strengthen this Earth Child revolution.
