Changes due to COVID 19

Heartfelt still has a number of photographers in every state volunteering to provide Heartfelt sessions.

Please double check with the State Representative to see if we can help - links are below. 

Heartfelt's commitment to giving the gift of photographic memories will never change.

If a Heartfelt photographer is unable to attend a session or the hospital procedures limit photographer access, we can still assist. 

We have created a downloadable Photography Tips Sheet for hospital staff (and parents) to help them take better photos, 

and a form with instructions on how to send the photos to Heartfelt for processing. 

We can provide Heartfelt Photographers to process the images and families will receive their images in our beautiful Heartfelt packs.


Heartfelt is a volunteer organisation of professional photographers from all over Australia and New Zealand dedicated to giving the gift of photographic memories to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature births or have children with serious and terminal illnesses.

Heartfelt is dedicated to providing this gift to families in a caring, compassionate manner.

All services are provided free of charge.

The photos you sent are just beautiful.
I cried as I viewed them because you depicted perfectly the beauty I see in my family everyday. No one has ever captured Bella's internal strength and innocence quite like you did.”

"Beautiful precious moments with our babies, you capture forever – a gift to a stranger in their darkest moments. That IS HEARTFELT! "


At Heartfelt, we have all been shocked by the unprecedented tragedy that is the Australian bushfires. 

Lives, homes, wildlife, livestock, land and livelihoods have been been devastated across our nation.

We thank those incredible volunteers and emergency services who have been working tirelessly who continue to battle these fires daily and give support to those in need. 

Our hearts go out to all of those who have been affected.

If you have used our services and the fires have reached you, please know that your photos are safe. 

When you are ready, we can send you a replacement package with prints and a USB with your photos.
