Ipswich Family and Children’s Portrait Photography

Photographs are what we hold on to when we can’t hold on in person

We’re all so busy these days and families are spread far and wide. When was the last time you slowed down long enough to reconnect what matters most to you?


Your Family Portraits Matter

They are the anchor to our place of belonging and a wonderful reminder of that safe space where we are loved just for being be ourselves.

Salt Mama Studio helps people celebrate themselves and their families, just as they are, through beautiful artwork. Wouldn’t you love to slow down and reconnect with those who matter most to you, just as they are now?

“Working with Amanda has been an incredible experience. Amanda’s extensive experience enables her to connect with people from all walks of life and capture the true essence of an individual. The photos Amanda captured of our school, staff and students have exceeded our expectations. She is an absolute joy to work with. Thank you Amanda for your contribution to our cause.”


“Our son just had a photo shoot with Amanda at Salt Mama Studios at he absolutely loved it. Amanda made him feel totally comfortable and he walked away so happy. The results are amazing!”

“Amanda is a true professional, she made me feel at ease and made me realise that a photo session should be a joyful experience and this translates into the finished result – natural looking, amazing quality pictures. Amanda sees the most beautiful part of you and captures it with love. You will treasure her pictures forever and you will keep wanting to look at them. I wish I knew of her back when I got married but then again there are so many more memorable moments and special occasions to come where I will certainly call upon her services.”


“Amanda is both artist and muse, a powerful combination. With this gift she gently sees to the depth of you and your intention and this in turn inspires you to feel safe and authentic in your space. The definition of the expression ‘Salt of the Earth’ generally denotes a person that is reliable, trustworthy, kind, straightforward, brings flavour and of great worth. This in my opinion describes Amanda’s Salt Mama and as such I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a photographer for yourself and your business to be seen. “

“Oh I just love LOVE what Amanda captured for us. What an invaluable gift to see my family, MY boys exactly as they were at that point in time. I am so grateful to have found her to make such wonderful memories because she didn’t just take our photos, you gave us a warm, fun and loving experience to let my babies’ happiness shine. I can’t wait to do it again soon and in years to come! Thank you ♡”

“Amanda made me feel comfortable throughout the process and I am very happy with the end result. She has photographed my children and captured their essence in a way that no photographer had ever done before. I can now see the difference between the branded baby mag photography and great artistic photography. I only wish I knew Amanda when my girls were born.”
