MELBOURNE'S FRIENDLIEST NEWBORN AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
There was an old lady who lived in a shoe...
Oh hi! I'm Ingrid. Photographer of people, places and plants. Mum of four. Wife to one. Nature lover. Hills dweller. Light seeker. Baby snuggler. Sometimes believer that I AM the woman who has so many children that she doesn't know what to do.
You could say that photography and I have been buddies for a lifetime, but it wasn't until our first babe arrived in 2010 that I became slightly (ok, completely) obsessed with documenting her everything.
Fast forward a few years and we now have four cheeky babes to call our own and I know that celebrating life in all its beautiful and chaotic glory - and sharing that gift with others through the art of photography - is indeed my heart's true calling.
So somewhere in between growing and raising our not-so-little brood, I have established and grown my business, and my expertise (including a Diploma of Professional Photography), to support the key phases of your family journey - with honesty, humour, integrity and love.
From the glow and anticipation of pregnancy, to the foggy milk soaked newborn days, and all the days that follow, I am dedicated to delivering a warm and supportive space for you to celebrate and document all that you are and all that you have created together.
noun | / fam.i.ly/
people in your life who are close to your heart. who bring out the best in you. who laugh, celebrate and dream with you. who love you infinitely.
Consider a photoshoot with me as a relaxed catch up with an old friend.
We'll walk, talk, giggle and play. And it won't feel at all like we've only just met (or that I'm there to take your photo).
With a knack for sensing energy levels in others, my job is to guide the flow of your session to ensure your experience is as light and enjoyable as possible.
At the same time, I will be directing and positioning, tweaking and fine tuning, considering light, frame and angles, providing prompts, asking questions, listening and observing. And inviting you to be fully present with the ones you love the most.
As a natural light Newborn and Family Photographer my photos have been described as earthy, uninhibited, joyous, creative, homely, free spirited, natural, comfortable, filled with light and love, magical, bright, playful, fun, authentic and warm.
They aim to capture the true nature of family, love and connection using a combination of traditional portraiture (think look at the camera and smile), lifestyle (natural story-telling moments) AND documentary (no direction, as you are) photography for each and every session.
You should come away from our time together feeling excited and assured that we have captured the very essence of who you all are and how you feel at this particular stage of your life.
