Ipswich Portrait Photographer

Most sessions can be booked here on the website or by calling Amanda directly on 07 3466 3481 during normal business hours.

I have a very easy online system. Payment of your session fee is required to add you to my calendar and is payable on booking. I accept Visa, EFT or Bank Transfer.

I specialise in photographing people and people come in all shapes, colours, sizes and ages. Get in touch to see if I can help you.

Yes! You are welcome to mix it up! I shoot different styles of portraiture and most clients are looking for different photos that convey different feelings in their portfolios.

I don’t put a time limit on my sessions because different people take a different amount of time to relax in front of a camera. Most sessions, however, last around 90 minutes.

Cancellations require a notice of 7 days prior to booking date for a full refund of your deposit. Cancellation requests less than 7 days prior to scheduled booking will forfeit their deposit. This policy is in place because my studio holds your date and time just for you.

You can’t possibly know how many photos you’ll love before you see them. I don’t offer packages because I don’t want you to feel locked in to a particular number. My goal is for you to purchase only the photographs that you love.

Not everybody is happy to have their images online. I will never publish any images without your permission. Your privacy is my priority.

A good photo has nothing to do with being photogenic and everything to do with being coached.

I can arm you with practical tips to help you look like the best version of you in a photo. A little knowledge goes and long way and you will never take a photo the same way ever again.

Nope. I don’t use photoshop to change people, in fact I don’t acutally use photoshop at all.

Here’s the thing though – I know how to sculpt with light and I can coach effectively. I can also pose you (and not look “posie”) to diminish that thing you really don’t like.  You know “that thing”, we’ve all got “that thing”,  but it’s usually only a thing for you.

As a professional, I work with professionals to raise the perceived value of their personal brand so that they attract their ideal clients  more easily. The return far outweighs the investment.

My services are more valuable than ever – and I’m worth it. But more importantly,

So Are You.

No, you definitely don’t ‘need’ it. Most of my clients prefer to do their own makeup.⁠

Some of my clients, however, really enjoy a little pampering & the results that a good makeup artist can deliver.

Professional Hair and Makeup can make or break a headshot.⁠ In fact, I only recommend one Hair and Makeup artist who works within my aesthetics.

 Carla can be hired for $150, payable directly to her on the day.

I photograph all my sessions tethered to a large monitor, allowing you to view your photographs as they are being taken. I collaborate with you every step of the way from posing, expressions and help you design the best looks to guarantee your satisfaction. You will know what you are getting before you leave the studio, and you will love it.

You will order your favourite images over a coffee on the day of the shoot. They will  be professionally retouched and uploaded to a secure folder within 10 working days. Your favourites are then safely backed up with me for a period of no less than 5 years. All unselected images are discarded one month after your session.

Product orders are ready for collection within 4 weeks under normal circumstances.

Not at all. In fact, I prefer to take care of all the details for you and offer you a completed product, ready to hang. 

My full product pricing can be found here.

Of course! I offer inspiration boards on pinterest and a call to help you plan and coordinate your wardrobe options for your photo session.

Under normal circumstances, digital negatives are ready within 5 working days and printed products are ready for collection within 4 weeks.

I sure do. Digital Negatives can be ready in as little as 24 hours. This service is available at an extra $50 per photo.

Yes! I back up all ordered photographs in 4 separate locations for a minimum of 5 years.
