Do you as a mum exist in photographs with your children

or are you always the one taking the photos? 



During the month of July 2019, we are looking for Mothers and Children to be photographed for an upcoming national book called

“A MOTHER AND HER CHILDREN . . . . A Loving Bond”.

To be part of this exciting initiative, simply fill in the form below and we will be in touch as soon as possible to book you in!

Your $51 participation fee will be forwarded to Make-A-Wish Australia, to help raise our target of $20,000.

So often we hear the stories in our community about children lives being unfairly cut short. Through various illnesses, often their quality of life is reduced to a point hard for most of us to imagine. What can we possibly do to help? Well, we do try our best through our photography to bring smiles to peoples faces BUT this year, Dean Agar Photography has also joined forces with other leading photographers across the nation to raise funds for Make-A-Wish Australia who make some kids dreams come true!

You must register on the link below by the 14th of August to be a part of this project.

Please be sure to select Dean Agar Photography as your preferred photographer.

 The photoshoot can take place any time between now and the end of September 2019 but sessions will book out fast.

Frequently asked questions: 

What is National Family Portrait Month?

National Family Portrait Month is the month of July 2019 and is a national fundraising effort to help raise over $20,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation Australia.

What is in it for the customer? 

In addition to helping raise much needed funds for Make-A-Wish, and have a series of priceless portraits made, you will also have the opportunity to purchase photographs from the photography session. If you wish to purchase photographs from the session you will be given the opportunity to look through the images taken right after the session. No need to come back for a viewing. 

What month is it held?

Annually, during July, for a $51 participation fee, all of which will be forwarded to Make-A-Wish Foundation Australia, mothers and their children have a great opportunity of having professional portraits taken with one images being selected to 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. Our studio is located in Bulimba (close to Brisbane CBD).

Can I have all of the family photographed? 

Absolutely! We will be happy to photograph the whole family at no extra cost, if you would like to take full advantage of the photography session.

Do you offer professional hair and makeup?

Yes, we offer professional hair and makeup as an optional extra of $150 or $125 each for 2 or more family members. Your hair and makeup artist will be waiting for you at our studio to give you a wonderful makeover. This service is not necessary for children or younger teens. We generally find that older teens will want to have their hair and makeup done and it does become a bonding experience for mums & daughters to have this done together for the session. Plan to go out afterwards as a special treat. You will look & feel awesome.

How does the book work?

We will choose the best and most suitable image for the book to ensure that the book is balanced. We will endeavour to choose from the favourites that you select at your viewing. The book will be available for purchase towards the end of the year and can be ordered online. There will be a separate edition book produced for each state represented. You will be sent an ordering link and the cost of the book will be around $85
