About Poihakena Portraits -Teowai & Gareth

March 29, 2022

Kia Ora, 

This is Gareth & I. We run Poihakena Portraits. We've had this business since 2014 when we opened in Poihakena (Port Jackson aka Sydney). We started our Portrait days as a way to fundraise for our daughter Stephanie's Kohanga Reo and it has grown from there.  . 
We live in Patea Taranaki with our 2 younger children Stephanie & Taniora (our big girls Tikanga & Summer are in their 20s and live in Australia).We travel NZ & AU with a collection of kakahu and make Portraits with whanau who book into our Māori Portrait Days
Now in addition to our usual  portrait days we are offering Portraits for our Kohanga Reo and Kura. Just like the regular school photos but with the addition of kahuhuruhuru & rau for the mokopuna who will wear them. 



We can capture classic school photos 

Maori Styled

We also provide kakahu and capture portraits in our style
