MEET LACEY BARRATT.
Your birth junky.
For the last 5 years Lacey has not only created a stir with her controversial images promoting women’s rights, but she has also cemented herself as one of this country’s most talented and outspoken birth photographers.
Lacey has been known to be unapologetically raw. She encapsulates the depths of the human soul in a single still image. Lacey has even been known to post herself nude up next to Kim Kardashian…why not? Ballsy and emotionally attached, Lacey strives to have women empowered through her imagery.
Lacey is also an accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP), a part of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers, Birth Photographers Australia, and Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project by Leilani Rogers #PBAP. More recently, she has started her own campaign #humansuncensored to help desexualise human bodies, men and women alike.
Lacey has been recognised locally for the impact that her imagery has made on her community. She was nominated as a finalist for the “Fair Go” Pride of Australia Medal in 2014. She has also been interviewed by NT News, ABC Radio, Positive Birth Movement Melbourne, and has spoken to a group of women about the “love yourself” campaign- loving your body postpartum, through the Office of Woman’s Advancement NT. She is an avid lover of birth, breastfeeding, and babywearing.
In 2015 Lacey was awarded NT Documentary Photographer of the Year 2015. At AIPP VPPY 2016 Lacey submitted 8 entries with 6 of them being awarded. Lacey was awarded the EPSON AIPP VPPY Documentary Photographer of the Year 2016 and in 2018 she was awarded the AIPP Documentary Photography of the Year, making her a multi-award winning Professional Photographer.
