It was a warm environment where my 7 kids could be themselves …. which made me feel a lot more comfortable. We throughly enjoyed the experience especially the children.

We are bringing our Portrait Experience to Tokoroa on

Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th of March 2020.

Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Te Hiringa are our hosts for the weekend.


We provide the kakahu, moko stamps & taonga needed to create a Maori styled Portrait with your whanau. We only do prebooked sitting so you do need to secure your session in advance.  You turn up 30mins before your sitting and we will style you, make portraits and then show them immediately after so you can make your order on the day. Once your order is paid for the prints and gallerys will be delivered to you at home.

We offer 2 portrait sitting sizes during our portrait days and both include A complimentary watermarked photo which will be EMAILED within 2 weeks of your sitting.  The sitting fee does NOT include any printed products
