Hi, I'm Inger! I grew up on a small Island in Norway and my dream was to study art in the US. Thanks to the most supportive parents, I was able to start making that dream a reality at 17 years old. I spent my 20's and 30's working and studying photography at the renowned Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. Art History and Photography at California State University, San Bernardino, CA, and at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, FL.
I love to call myself a Lifestyle Photographer. I specialize in emotionally driven portraiture. During your maternity or family session, my goal is to capture those precious moments that show how your family interacts when you let your cares go and you just enjoy yourself. I replace words like "say cheese!" with phrases like "snuggle up!", which will allow you to focus on the here and now.
These are not your typical portraits. These photos capture the moment versus the pose- you'll get portraits that display the most genuine and authentic moments. I'll give you just enough prompts and direction to help your family's natural interaction unfold. At your session, we'll generally capture the more traditional poses first and thereafter allow the natural expressions and connections to unfold so that you'll get the best of both worlds!
My classical art education and years of training have given me the experience of blending the old with the new and you'll receive wall- worthy portraits that are skillfully crafted and that you'll treasure forever.
Thank you for your interest in my work! Now that you know a little bit about me and my why, I hope you'll invite me in to capture some of the fleeting and precious moments in your life that would otherwise be lost to time. I can promise that I'll give my whole heart in documenting your story. I can't wait to get to know you!
Warmest, Inger (Photo-Woman, LLC.)
