Hey! I’m Ingrid

I create happy and heartfelt photos for families and small businesses who value joy and authenticity

Together with my husband, four awesome kiddos and two very spoilt miniature dachshunds, I live in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, on the outskirts of Melbourne.

Through my work, I aim to capture the true nature of love, joy and connection by using a combination of traditional portraiture (look at the camera and smile), lifestyle (natural story-telling moments) and documentary photography (those in-between moments).

And because I know that having your photo taken can feel awkward, I will guide the flow of your session from start to finish to ensure that your experience is as light and enjoyable as possible.

If my style of photography speaks to you, let's catch up and see what we can create together!


How do I book a session?

Easy peasy! Simply complete the contact form with some basic information about yourself and what you're after and I'll get back to you with my availability. I only have a limited number of sessions per month so please book in advance. Once your deposit has been paid and your contract is signed, you’re all booked.

What should I expect during my photography session?

My goal is create and capture authentic emotion and connection, which means that your photography session will be filled with love, laughter and lots of play. Your only job is to show up with an open heart and I will direct and guide you the entire way.

What happens after my photography session?

A sneak peak from your photography session may be shared on instagram or Facebook within a few days. The full selection of your photos will be available to view within 1-2 weeks.

What happens if it rains, or I am sick?

Ready to talk details?

I will be keeping a close eye on the weather and any decisions to reschedule your session due to inclement weather will be made on the day (and up to one hour prior to the session). It is amazing how often the weather clears up at photo time! If you are sick, or I am, we will reschedule - no problem.
