"It's a truly rare talent, Barb Uil captures pure essence of baby..."- Practical Parenting Magazine Australia

If you are after a JinkyHeart session for a terminally ill child or baby please contact us as soon as possible.  JinkyHeart sessions are about creating a once in a life time photography experience based on the child's interests, loves and personality.   Eligible families receive a copy of the full resolution files (up to 30) for download. The only cost to the family would be any travel or prop costs and this can be discussed in full prior to the session.

"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 is a photography experience inspired by childhood wanderings, boundless imagination, far away places, antique treasures and all things family.  Known worldwide for her magical and imaginative depiction of childhood, award winning photographer Barb Uil began her journey as a photographer in 2003 after many years of working with children in Pre-Schools and exploring all things childhood.

Her admiration and love for children has inspired not only the JinkyArt brand but has also allowed her to travel world wide booking countless portrait commissions,  teach over a hundred JinkyArt photography workshops, feature in magazines globally and become a recognized name in the world of Children's Photography.

However, Barb Uil loves nothing more than the simple pleasure of photographing the children that she meets and creating pieces that depict their boundless imaginations and love that they feel for their families.
