"Her photos make for a walk down a vivid memory lane. Full and alive with color, the photographs evoke echoes of innocent laughter, the feel of hushed breeze, and the soothing, calming warmth of the sun. Not to mention, a tinge of nostalgia for the good old days of childhood." ~ Digital Photographer Magazine Asia Pacific."


JINKY ART STYLED SESSION - Limited Availability.

JinkyArt:  A JinkyArt session is Barb's signature work. A JinkyArt session is a collaboration of ideas aimed at creating a unique experience just for your child or children and in celebration of the wonders of their imagination and interests. We aim at delivering a once in a life time collection of photographs that depicts your children in a way that can be treasured for years to come.  This can be a shoot for a singular child, siblings or in celebration of a relationship such as mother and daughter.  Private commission fee is $2700  and includes a beautiful 12x12 keepsake album filled with up to 20 10x7 photographs from the session gallery.  $1200 is due at the time of booking, with the remainder due one week prior to your session date. Some prop hire/cost is included in the commission fee however if you request anything beyond this, we will discuss this prior to the session. We can also discuss the use of a stylist and other options if desired.  After the session you are able to choose to purchase prints, canvas, collections and digital files.    Print prices begin at $160 for an 8x10" Signed, matted and mounted print.  See below for examples.






JinkyLife: JinkyLife is all about documenting your family, baby or children naturally, as you are today.  Be it in your home, your holiday house, the Jinky Studio  or a favourite location.  Capturing beautiful portraits of your children is just as important as photographing your wedding, and for this reason Barb will spend up to 1.5 hours with you capturing timeless, sweet portraits. These sessions are generally prop free and for all age groups and families, from newborns to teens.  The Private commission Fee is $250 and this includes $100 credit towards your order. (No products included in you session fee).   After your session, you can expect to view upward of 30-40 timeless portraits.  After the session you are able to choose to purchase prints, canvas, collections and digital files.   Print prices begin at $120 for an 8x10 print. Please note additional travel costs may apply for out of area sessions - Barb is located in Bungendore NSW.

Thank you very much for dropping by!

My heart for photography sits in capturing childhood imagination and the beautiful way that a child's daydream can take us on a fantastic journey.

I won’t prattle on, because more than any stories, reasons, acclaims or accolades, I would really love for my work to speak for itself.

Thanks again for visiting.

xoxoxo ~ Barb Uil.
