We’re not hit-it-and-quit-it photographers.
We don’t photograph weddings weekend after weekend after weekend.
We make a connection with you from start to finish.
From your loved up coupledom to your new furry friends to your baby’s first smile to your ‘just because’ adventures.
We help you fill up the walls with beautiful photos of your life as you live it.
We help you capture, remember and relive the hygge moments, both big and small.
Janet is just plain exceptional. We’ve used her for our personal maternity shoots, family portraits, mini Christmas shoots, all of the memory making things for my family and I! I also use her in my makeup business (Iridis Cosmetics) for family portraits and headshots for my clients. I just love how she captures the personality of the subjects so perfectly. Her photos are of amazing quality. And she’s so easy to deal with. She’s calm, professional, funny and creates such magic with her camera!
Our regular stomping grounds cover the inner north and west of Melbourne and we know all the best places and hidden gems that are perfect for your shoot.
But we also take regular romps further afield because we know that the rad graffiti walls, gorgeous beaches and spectacular forests— that make the perfect backdrop for big puffy-hearted hygge moments— exist outside our ‘hood.
Have a space in mind? We’d love to hear your ideas!
MEET THE MAGIC MAKERS
Owner & Photographer
Danish native, hyggelig enthusiast and your won’t-even-notice-she’s-there capturer of magic moments.
A woman of few words who feels more comfortable behind the lens than in front, Janet is a firm believer in documenting the everyday and momentous occasions that make up a person’s life.
Living with her husband, mini human and 4 nutty furbabes in a weatherboard house old enough to claim the pension. Janet is inspired by music, travel and all things retro or Scandinavian in flavour. Hello mid century modern!
Salted caramel is her weak spot (so if you’re looking to butter her up, look no further).
And did we mention she’s also a multiple award-winning, Australian Institute of Professional Photography accredited photographer?
