Originally from South Africa, Ingrid moved to the UK 18 years ago, newly married planning to stay for just a year. After 10 years in Business Intelligence consulting, she left the corporate world and the daily commute into the city to pursue a career in photography. After attending night classes, she started working for a local photographer gaining valuable experience and knowledge in portrait, commercial and event photography. Ingrid lives in Buckinghamshire with her husband, 2 children and 2 dogs.
Angelina’s passion for photography began in her late teens when she took her first course in black and white printing at her local North London college. After 18 years in the world of digital media and marketing (and a few more little photography courses along the way) Angelina decided to take a break from work, focus on her family and study for a diploma in Photography, dreaming of the day she might be able to call herself a photographer. Angelina lives in Buckinghamshire with her husband, son and dog.
Ingrid and Angelina met in 2014 when their sons began attending the same school. Fast forward a few years, many social school events, chats at the school gates and umpteen dog walks later they both find themselves to be in a similar position. Keen to work but in charge of their own schedules and as luck would have it sharing a love of photography!
And so in 2018 HotShoes was formed with a handshake and a couple of cheesy grins on a dog walk in Wendover Woods, while climbing Coombe Hill.
Simply put, our family photos from HotShoes are the best we have had. The children had a lovely time, Ingrid and Angelina made them giggle and the shoot was incredible relaxed. A pleasure from start to finish
Ingrid and Angelina made us feel completely relaxed, they had a great way with the children, so we have some fantastic and very natural and fun photos, thank you both so much
Ingrid and Angelina were professional in their approach, from the booking confirmation to the photo session itself. Our two younger children were photographed outside which was exactly what we wanted and all of the photos were natural, relaxed, happy... exactly what we were looking for. We will certainly book HotShoes again, my Dad’s 80th Birthday celebrations in the summer is already in the diary! Thank you Ingrid and Angelina
