The Lilypad Story

Hi there!  I’m Lisa Ivandich - Photographer, chief memory maker, lover of good coffee, naps, and perfectly imperfect Mum of two hoomans and one furbaby!

I create photos you will LOVE and capture the unforgettable moments that tell your family's story, your way.

Because nothing fills my heart more than families sharing beautiful and meaningful moments and spending quality time together.

My goal is to simply create authentic moments where you’re relaxed, having fun and looking amazing . . . and then capture those memories.

Sure Lisa, that sounds all well and good, but have you met my crazy kids (or husband/pets/teenager/toddler)? Don’t worry. I’ve got you. I’m a mum of two myself and I get it and I’ve been photographing families for over 15 years and have a trick or two up my sleeve for getting a smile out of even the trickiest or most stubborn family members.

I am passionate about ensuring your family's story is documented with beautiful photographs that you will treasure now, and even more so years from now.

AND just as importantly I want to make sure YOU exist in your family's story too.

My love for photography goes back a long way. Mum was always the one with the camera in her hands, snapping photos of my sister, brother, and me as we grew up. First smiles. First steps. First birthdays. First days at school. Mum and her camera were always there. It wasn’t long before my love affair with photography began and we had two “happy snappers” in the house.

When I was 24, my Mum unexpectedly passed away.

Looking back through those treasured family photo albums, I realised that the great photos of her and I together were few and far between. One of us was always taking the photo.

What I wouldn’t give to change that.

While I can’t go back in time and take more photos of my Mum and myself, I can start with you and your family.

This is why I do what I do.

My mission is to ensure EVERY family in Perth has beautiful family photographs that document their life story as their family changes.

Families like yours.

Are you ready for family photos you LOVE?

Me to.

Let’s create amazing memories together.
