We are looking for Mothers and Their Children to be photographed for an upcoming book called “A Mother and her Children.. and unbreakable bond”. To be part of this exciting initiative,

you can simply RESERVE your spot with your $51 participation fee, all of which will be forwarded to the Make a Wish Foundation, to help raise our target of $20,000.

I am excited to be involved for the fourth year in this project involving Australia’s top portrait photographers who donating their talent and their time, and a little bit of money, and with your help are planning to help raise $20,000 for the Make A Wish Foundation……

Every participant will have one of their photographs featured in a beautiful book called “A Mother and her Children” which will be a celebration of the loving bond between a mother and her children.

Wherever life takes you over the years, your family portraits will serve as a timeless reminder of your memories. In a fleeting single glance, family portraits can transport you to the moment when you were surrounded by family, love, and support.

There is a $51 per family participation fee, will be forwarded in full to the Make A Wish Foundation.  Our target is to raise $20,000 for the charity.


Why should you choose über photography?

It's hard to find the time to take that important photo of your family and pets and the last thing you want is for it to be stressful. über photography is known for creating award winning photos of your loved ones as they grow and change. We're confident our relaxed environment will capture that moment you can share and cherish... forever.

Our photographer Kate is a mum to 3 kids of her own Felix 18, Max 17 and Millie 13 . Her dog Immy and cat Sarah are very much part of her family as well. She has been married to her hubby Chris for 23 years. They work together every day and wouldn't have it any other way. 

As a mum herself she understands the ways to help you relax and have fun with your kids during your session. Having raised 3 energetic kids of her own, she loves photographing kids who aren't always that great at sitting still :)

Her passion is photographing families in a natural way. She loves to be able to capture the personalities of your kids through your photographs. Her ability to connect with your family means that she is able to capture images that are a true reflection of your kids and your family.
