About


Inspired Portraits captures natural-looking photos for families to treasure - and professional photos for businesses that help deepen bonds with their customers.

Your photographic Experience

Being photographed can be a daunting experience. It’s normal to feel a little uncomfortable in front of a camera. We know most people want natural-looking photos, so we take the time to get to know you prior to your session. This enables us to capture photos that you instantly recognise as your son’s ‘look’, or your daughter lost in an activity she adores, or a pet dog running around in circles chasing their tail.

Photos bring back memories, stir up strong feelings deep inside, and bring us closer to those we love.

Our Principal Photographer, Kristie, has been a photographer for 10 years, a registered nurse, and midwife for even longer. She has 2 kids of her own that “light up her world”: Tara who’s 12, and Ryan, 15.   

At Inspired Portraits, we soothe fussy newborns, squirmy kids, and sort out teens who are too cool and would rather be chatting with their friends. You can rely on us to have tonnes of patience for the reluctance and self-consciousness that goes hand-in-hand with photo sessions. Finally, you can trust us to respect your choices and guide you on this journey.

Let us help you take relaxed and natural shots of your loved ones that make you smile as you see them on your wall each day. Photos you will treasure forever and pass down as heirlooms.  

What portraits are you after? Maternitynewborn, babies, children, family, and pets - We’re here for you.

When it was finally time to update our family photos (it had been over 12 years and well overdue) we contacted Kristie from Inspired Portraits. I was really blown away with the amount of work Kristie put in before our photo shoot. Kristie took the time to contact us all prior to the shoot to really get to know us so when the big day finally came along she had a great understanding of our personalities and how she could best capture these on her camera. We picked a stunning location for our shoot and we were so happy with how the photos came out. We now have 4 amazing pieces of artwork from our shoot up on the wall in our lounge room and every time I glance up I can't help but smile and be grateful for my beautiful family. Thank you so much Kristie.

Businesses

Your industry is filled with the same products and services. Customers are selective and savvy. They need more than comparisons and reviews. More than stock photos.

We now know that customers aren’t rational. Logic backs up emotions and feelings. Let us help you bring the human element into your website with professional photos that will deepen your bond with your customers and prospects - and draw them to choose you and your business instead of your competitors.

What do you need your photos for? Headshots, business portraits, branded workspace, employees, or customers for your website, e-commerce, ads, social media, brochures and more. Find out how we can help with your commercial photography needs.

Kristie did an amazing job with my headshots. She is so fast and efficient but really knows her stuff. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone needing corporate work done.

About Kristie

Hi! I’m Kristie and the principal photographer at Inspired Portraits.

Having begun my career as a Nurse and Midwife, over 22 yrs ago, in 2008 I started my journey into photography. Completing a few short courses before embarking on a certificate in photography in 2009.

Since then, I have broadened my services to include portraits, commercial work and now offering online photography courses. Specialising in newborn, babies, kids, families and pets.

Having a passion for people and a general interest in their relationships, combining this with portraiture, has allowed me to offer clients an experience that is unique and individual.

I love seeing how kids interact with their parents naturally and unprompted. Being able to capture a child deep in thought whilst they play with a favourite toy or watching siblings interact with each other in a natural, unprovoked way, is amazing! Or it can be as simple as photographing those beautiful details that only newborns possess.

Inspiring people to reconnect and rediscover what they love most about each other is my aim. Having a family of my own with 2 children; Ryan and Tara, as well as a fur baby called Ralph, I am confident that together, we can create timeless photographs that will become heirlooms for future generations to come.

I have used Kristie Dutson from Inspired Portraits As a repeat client - 3 times! One for our dog, 1 newborn and a 1 year old cake smash! All experiences have been fantastic. My wife and I chose Kristie as we knew she was a qualified midwife. We had full confidence with her handling our precious baby and the photos just show that she is absolutely fantastic! Highly recommend:)
