After more than a decade as a professional photographer, including five successful years as the main photographer and director of Ivy Rose Studio, Kirsteen decided to refocus on what she loved the most – newborn and maternity photography.


She retrained in newborn photography and hasn’t looked back for a second. Kirsteen loves everything about her work, from meeting new mums-to-be at the most exciting stage of their lives to being a part of their journey and meeting their precious babies for their very own

newborn photoshoot.

Photographer and Makeup Artist

Mirren specialises in newborn photography and has has over 15 years of industry experience as a professional makeup artist.  She loves nothing more than working with her sister, Kirsteen, on a daily basis.


Mirren counts her job as a newborn photographer as such a blessing and loves getting to know her clients whilst taking adorable photos of their precious new bundle.  Being a mum herself, she understands the excitement and nerves that are all at play. She also loves pampering her clients to perfection for their maternity photoshoot.
