Beautiful, fun photography for modern families
Hi, I’m Inga and welcome to my little part of the blogosphere. I am a lifestyle portrait photographer specialising in bump, baby and family portraits, based in Tenterden, Kent but I also cover the surrounding areas such as Wittersham, Ashford, Rolvenden, Northiam, Hawkhurst, Sandhurst, Rye, Folkestone, Whitstable etc. I am always happy to travel further afield if need be.
WHAT I DO
I love to document life as it happens, capturing those precious, and often fleeting, moments as your baby grows up faster than you had expected. I like to portray children in an informal way so that the photos fully reflect their personalities and how your family lives, creating lasting memories of a particular moment in time – your child, their favourite toys, their cutest outfit, even what your lounge looked like on that Tuesday afternoon.
When you first have a baby everyone tells you to savour those first few days, weeks and months and you try but they really do fly by which is why I think it is so important to document your baby as he or she grows up. This is why I choose to work within a home environment, using natural light, rather than using a more formal studio setting. I also aim to reveal special details, like the sole of your baby’s tiny foot, their rosebud lips or long eyelashes. My favourite photos are ones that take you back in time and you can feel the emotion and happiness.
With these portraits of your child surrounded by their favourite people and things, you’ll have a constant reminder of a special stage in their happy childhood. This is what I hope to create for you – beautiful, fun family photos!
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
I grew up in Belgium but moved to Manchester when I went to University. I made some great friends and loved the city so much I decided to make it my home for over 20 years and it’s here I met my wonderful husband. We have been now married for over 6 years and have a gorgeous little girl who is 4 and a bouncing baby boy who was born in March 2015. It was through my wedding and the birth of our daughter that my love of photography has really grown and developed. We made a big move from Manchester to the Garden of England (i.e. beautiful Kent) in the Summer of 2013 due to Matt’s job so it’s been a new adventure for all of us which I hope to share with you on these pages.
A few things I love…..spending time with my friends and family, Apple gadgets, big fluffy pink peonies, Pinterest, watching the sunrise at the back of our garden, ice cold drinks, Cosmopolitans and when I’m not working or chasing after my munchkins I love to have a good nosey on family, wedding and style blogs.
