    I would whole heartily recommend Angie to everyone. I came to Angie after my newborn photographer cancelled on my when my daughter was 6 days old. And if you've been looking into newborn photography you know just how important it is to get them early. I actually rang Angie while she was on a family holiday to see if she was available at all, fortune was on my side that day as she was returning the next day and would be in touch with me. Angie kept her promise and was an absolute professional on the phone, I was somewhat emotional at the time over the situation and she was just great in answering all of my questions. She emailed through a comprehensive questionnaire to fill out the day before my shoot which I found really helpful as I was unsure what I wanted, only that I did want beautiful memories of my daughter. The day of the shoot ran so smoothly and I really enjoyed how there was no pressure of a time limit. Being a new mother trying to breastfeed is hard and with an added pressure of a timed photo shoot is something you don't need. I really found Angie comfortable to be around and that was something very important to me, especially in those early days as a mother. Angie really 'got' what I wanted out of my shoot, she had spent the night before setting up the studio with different areas so we walked in and it was just there, ready to go. She spent time talking to my partner and me before hand and listened to us. I felt we weren't just another client to her, she made us feel like we were her most favourite client. After the shoot Angie kept us informed on when our viewing would be, there was a wait which she told me about before our shoot. I didn't mind this as it wasn't a surprise sprung on us. She did promise that some sneaky pictures would be available that night to swoon over. They were and there was much swooning after we saw them and more when I showed the rest of our families. The day of the viewing was amazing, I brought my mother and my mother in law as well as my partner and our baby. There were many tears and smiles while we watched the video and saw all of Angie's hard work had paid off. Before we saw the viewing my partner and I had discussed a budget figure and had some ideas about what we wanted to buy. This is very important as Angie's work is incredible and I could have spent an enormous figure. We ended up purchasing, on top of our package, 8 canvases; 5 of just our daughter and a group of 3 of our family. The canvases are certainly an investment, the quality is museum grade with a 75year warranty! It helped that Angie did a little mock up of different photo groupings so you can create different styles. She also has some canvas sizes so you can physically see them. Sometimes they look big but on a wall it may not give you the right look. Angie has great vision and certainly helped us in choosing the style we were after. Overall Angie is wonderful, she is respectful and understanding of how emotional it can be being a new mother. She has great advice and stories to tell during your shoot. She keeps you informed after your shoot and also has packages available for the first year milestones, which we have booked. I would recommend her to everyone looking at investing in a newborn shoot, you can't keep your little one little forever but with Angie's work you'll always have great memories of this magical time close to your heart.

    Upon falling pregnant with our second child, my partner and I had not discussed having a birth photographer until we saw Angies work. I was relieved as to how friendly and passionate Angie was towards her work which made me feel more at ease, especially while having her at our birth. I honestly didn't even notice Angie was in the room throught the birth and afterwards. The photos she took were amazing, she was able to captures every moment I had forgotten, including my partner and I walking to the hospital. Her photos truly tell our magical story.

    'Since having my children, I had always wanted to get a professional photo shoot done however the price was always something that turned me off. When my twins were born this year and knowing they would be my last, I looked into local photographers and was recommended to try Angie Petersen, from Desire to Inspire Photography. I was a bit worried about how the shoot would go, whether there would be sufficient time to take all the photos that we wanted, if it would be rushed and if the boys would handle the shoot itself. Angie was so patient; she took the time to help me settle the boys and even helped me feed them during the shoot. Angie allowed sufficient time for the photo shoot itself and time to settle the boys into the shoot. Her attention to detail was evident in the way she took her photos and the way in which she prepared each different photo scene. Having never had professional photos taken before, I was left feeling relaxed and I knew that the photos would come out beautifully. Angie gave me a sneak peak of the photos later that afternoon and I knew that it was all worth it. There were 7 different packages to choose from and Angie even offered take home layby which was a great option. The packages ranged in price but I knew that the quality of the photos that we were being provided with were well worth the price. If I choose to photos done again in the future then I will definitely be going back to Angie. Quality over quantity everytime.'

    Amy,

    When we found out we were expecting our second child I approached Angie about capturing our journey. The birth of my first child was very traumatic and as a result we have minimal photos of those precious first hours & days, and only fleeting memories, due to the focus being turned to myself & my recovery. I was determined not to miss out this time, but I have to admit my husband wasnt completely chuffed with the whole idea. Having engaged Angies services on several occasions, she was a natural choice and we have found her to be both professional and helpful. We werenâ??t to be disappointed this time either- her skills in capturing emotion and the essence of birth made unforgettable memories for our family. She beautifully captured the most intimate photos that truly show the beauty of birth. And best of all my husband was over the moon (as was I!).

    Bronwyn,

    I am so glad I had Angie (desire to inspire photographer) at my birth.... I hadn't had birthing photography done with my other 3 children and thought since this was my last, I had to go all out! I wanted the best in the business and someone I felt comfortable sharing such a personal moment with. The minute I met Angie I knew she was exactly what I was looking for. There was no fussing about. Everything I needed to know was layed out on the table, any questions I could have possibly had were already answered. The service I recieved was nothing but perfect! I felt like I had just taken a friend into labor with me. I had a very long labor and she stayed there the whole time and took amazing photos of me and my new baby along with gorgeous photos of my hubby and sister.

    Stuart & Sam,

    "The birth of ones own child is among the most significant events that a person can hope to experience in their life. It involves those very special moments that mark the entry of a new life into the world. Angie has a rare talent to see those moments and capture them on camera. Her images are more than a chronicle of what happened; they arrest your attention because, somehow, they are filled with the deep emotion of those special moments. During the birth of our twins, Megan and George, Angie managed to capture those wonderful, rare moments. Her creative talents extended to compiling images in multimedia formats of the compilation video of our birth story touches us every time we see it. As we were unable to travel to her studio, Angie visited our home to take newborn photos when the twins were twelve days old and she also took photos of our four year old daughter, Alice and family portraits. We have never seen anyone put so much energy and patience into photography - it gave us a whole new insight into what photography is to a dedicated professional! The resulting photos were absolutely stunning, really incredible. Angie was a delight to work with too: she possesses a quiet, friendly and warm disposition that makes her very easy to get along with. She evidently has a real affinity for little babies and children as well - she certainly has patience by the bucket-load too! She was reliable on every occasion and she accommodated our needs without a murmur of complaint - when we were unable to travel to her studio she just brought the studio to us, and she has some lovely outfits and props! We could not fault her work, far from it: she has that rare combination of technical skill and artistic talent that sets her work apart. Her passion is evident in the care she puts into everything she does, and the resulting products were all of an exceptional standard. We were delighted both with her work, and with her; so we can highly recommend Angie to you. If you are thinking about photography for your birth, or newborns, you could not wish for better. We intend to use Angie again for family portraits, in future, quite simply because her work is indeed inspirational and, when it really counts you need someone you can count on. Every time we look at our photos we count ourselves fortunate indeed to have had Angie there.
