Australia’s top portrait photographers are donating their talent and their time, and with your help  are planning to help raise $20,000 for Make-A-Wish Australia.  The participating photographers are some of Australia’s best and they look forward to photographing you for this project. Please help us raise these much needed funds.


During the month of JULY 2018, we are looking for Mothers and their Children across Australia and New Zealand, to be photographed for an upcoming book called  “A MOTHER AND HER CHILDREN… A Loving Bond.” The book will be a celebration of motherhood to reflect on and to recognise the amazing contribution and loving bond that mothers have with their children.

Your $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.

The Photographyroom is the offical photographer for South Australia. Once your registration is received, we will contact you to organise a time for your complimentary photography session.



PLEASE NOTE: The photography session can be anytime up until the end of October, but registrations are due before the end of July.



What is National Family Portrait Month? National Family Portrait Month is in the month of July 2018 and is a national fundraising effort in Australia and New Zealand, to help raise $20,000 for the the Make A Wish Foundation charity.

What is in it for the customer? In addition to helping raise much needed funds for the Make A Wish Foundation and having a priceless portrait taken, you will also have the opportunity to purchase photographs from your photography session, as a priceless record of your family.

What month is it held? Annually during July for a $51 participation fee, all of which will be forwarded to the Make A Wish Foundation, mothers and their children have a great opportunity of having a professional portrait taken that will appear in an inspirational book, called “A Mother And Her Children ... A Loving Bond.”

Who are the photographers? Photographers around Australia have come together by making their own donation to help raise funds for the charity and are also donating their time and talent for the cause. Photographyroom is the sole photographer for South Australia.

Does it work? Last year over 550 photography sessions were booked, and we SMASHED our goal to raise $10,000 and final numbers were in excess of $30,000 raised for the Womens Cancer Foundation.

Can I have all the family photographed?  We are very happy to photograph the whole family at no extra cost, so you can take full advantage of the photography session.

Can I purchase photographs? Yes, you will be given the opportunity to purchase photographs. Images start from $275 with Wall Art, Print Bundles, Albums & Digital Files available.

Will my photograph be in the book? Yes, all those who pay their participation fee and are photographed will be in the book.

Do I get to choose the photograph for the book? The graphic designer will choose all the photographs in the book to ensure that the design is balanced.

When will the book be published?  We hope to have the books published before the end of the year.

How much will the book cost? The price of the book will depend on total number of books ordered, but will be around $85.

Where can I buy the book? The book may be purchased online, or from participating photographers.
