Babies & Bunnies 2022
We turn little moments into timeless memories..
What is Babies & Bunnies?
Babies and Bunnies is a special photography project by Kindred Portraits- one of Sydney's most trusted and loved family portrait photographers – for families with little ones aged 0-3 years old.
This project is an amazing opportunity to celebrate the magic of babyhood with gorgeously styled studio portraits of your baby – and your experience can also include photos of your whole family!
Kindred Portraits will also be raising funds for one of Australia’s most important charities: PANDA (Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Australia) to help parents on the frontline. Kindred will donate $50 from every photography purchase to PANDA.
Families with babies up to approximately the age of 3.5 (at the time of their session) can apply for a spot.
When we have completed all the sessions, we will create a stunning coffee table book, a stunning heirloom for the families in the project, and also available to buy at the conclusion of the project.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are you doing this project?
We are aiming to raise $20,000 for PANDA, supporting mums who are suffering perenatal anxiety & depression.
What’s in it for me?
In a time where life is uncertain, giving back feels fabulous and you can also get beautiful portraits of your baby and family too, it’s a win-win!
When can we do the shoot?
We have sessions available weekdays between 10am and 2pm with limited weekend slots as well to suit most timetables.
Can I include other family members?
Of course, we encourage it! We’d love you to take advantage of the studio time you have at no extra cost and update your family portraits.

Yes, every family who purchases any photography will have the opportunity to be included in the book.
What if I don’t know what to say in the book?

PANDA - Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia supports women, men and families across Australia affected by anxiety and depression during pregnancy and in the first year of parenthood. PANDA operates Australia’s only National Helpline for individuals and their families to recover from perinatal anxiety and depression, a serious illness that affects up to one in five expecting or new mums and one in ten expecting or new dads.
Your privacy is important. Your child’s picture will be published publicly (in print and online) alongside their first name only with express permission by participating guardians.
For full transparency, we run this project to raise funds for PANDA and also to promote our photographic art. Priority will be given to families who choose to purchase photographs and artwork from their photo session.
