Heartfelt, (formerly known as the ACOCP) is a volunteer organisation of professional photographers from all over Australia who have come together to form an organisation dedicated to giving the gift of photographic memories to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature and ill infants and children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units of their local hospitals, as well as children with serious and terminal illnesses. Heartfelt is dedicated to providing this gift to families in a caring, compassionate and heartfelt manner. 

This organisation began as the brain child of Siobhan Cowell, a Brisbane based photographer who was a NICU nurse in a previous life. In early 2006 Jessie Broome, a photographer in Melbourne, came on board, and by working together the ACOCP was born. After a year of hard work and legal red tape the ACOCP officially launched in April, 2007. Since then we have grown from a handful of photographers to a nationwide organisation helping families across Australia on a daily basis.

In 2010 a new name was chosen that captures the essence of the work we do and the experience families are left with.

The current leadership team is:

Gavin Blue - President
Steve Lovegrove - Vice President
Viv Hayles - Secretary
Adrienne Gilligan - Admin
