I am Ingrid Barnhart. I'm a portrait photographer in Austin, Texas, where I specialize in capturing moments and documenting memories for my clients so that they can keep them forever.
When photographing women and their families, I look for the interactions - the kiss, the laugh, or look - where a photograph will save an otherwise fleeting moment that my client would want to remember. Life moves too quickly; photos are one way to preserve what we don't want to forget.
I grew up in beautiful Barranquilla, Colombia, and I've loved photography for as long as I can remember. My father loved it as well, and I remember watching him take photos of everything and then develop the images by hand. After graduating from high school, I dreamt of becoming a professional photographer, but it wasn't until after I moved to the United States in 2013 that I could follow that dream. I spent a few years adapting to my new country and language, and when my boyfriend (now husband) gave me my first professional camera for Christmas, I dove into learning everything I could and started my photography business. When a friend asked me to do a boudoir shoot for her, I fell absolutely in love and added that to my portfolio.
I am a mom of two beautiful girls, and I love using my camera to document our family life together.
Podemos trabajar en Español! Si te hace sentir mas comodo comunicarte conmigo en tu lengua natal o si sabes hablar Español y quieres practicarlo, siempre estaré feliz de conocer gente nueva a la que pueda ofrecerle algo adicional para relajarse estando frente a la cámara, algunas veces puede ser un poco intimidante en los primeros minutos de la sesión, entonces por supuesto tu sesión sera en Español!
