My name is Verity Hipper. Welcome to my page.
I am an award winning newborn and children's fine art photographer at state and national level and an accredited member of the AIPP (Accredited Institute of Professional Photography) which is regulated by the ACCC. I am based in Coromandel Valley, (not far from Flinders University) in the Adelaide Hills, just 25 minutes from the City of Adelaide.
Newborn safety is paramount to me and I have the experience to pose and work with babies in a safe and comfortable way. I keep my immunisations up to date and I possess a Child-Related Employment Screening Clearance with the DCSI.
I have studied the Diploma in Photography with the Photography Institute & I have also attended workshops with world class newborn & children's photographers Kelly Brown, Little Pieces Photography (Brisbane), Mary Maloney, Pebbles & Polkadots (USA), Leah Robinson, (Melbourne) & Elena Shumilova (Russia). I now offer mentoring & one on one workshops for photographers on newborn photography in my own style.
My Style of Photography
I value your personal tastes with preferences towards colours and props in my images yet I am always filled with unique and fresh ideas often using a mixture of natural hand made items, fresh flowers and organic, soft wool layers. I have an extensive collection of quality backdrops, baskets & woven nests, soft textured blankets, beautiful bonnets, hats, beanies, headbands and wraps which I source from here in Adelaide, interstate, and worldwide. I enjoy mixing and matching different textures together to enhance a beautiful background that is safe and comfortable for your baby and in which your baby will star! I have a solid understanding of Photoshop editing and prefer naturally edited images to enhance, not alter photographs too much. I currently shoot with both studio and natural light for different effects. I love colour and my photographs can be described as emotive, whimsical & ethereal!
A bit about me
As a mother, I feel I can relate well to parents whether they are new mums & dads or have more than 1 child. I love babies and children! I love the happiness that my images bring to the parents of the children that I photograph. The way a baby’s eyes sparkle when they stare at their Mummy and Daddy. I think there’s nothing more beautifully created than the sweet little features of a brand new baby. I treasure the response from parents when they receive their portraits from me. To make people happy is a great thing.
For me, photographs are one of life’s most treasured belongings. I'm really noticing time is just flying by these days, so I truly believe that photographs are a life long and important investment.
