“Barb Uil has become one of the most sought after portrait photographers in Australia, and its not hard to see why” ~ Better Photography Magazine Australia.


Thank you for your interest in booking a session with Barb Uil.    JinkyArt sessions are styled photographs, with an artful touch. Aimed at bringing your child’s imagination to life – consider a JinkyArt portrait like a painting rather than a session of photographs.  However, the difference is that the children experience everything on the day. There is a lot of retouching, however, we bring to life your childs imagination in front of them, actually at the session. So if your child loves horses, of course, a horse will be there.   Together we build an experience to photograph just for your child. It really is all about their wonderful imagination, and the world around them at the time of the shoot.  Due to family commitments – JinkyArt Portraits are presently only available as an add-on to the JinkyLife Family session.  JinkyLife session details can be found here Simply book in a family session and we can arrange to have artful JinkyArt portraits done at the same time.   After a JinkyLife session, JinkyArt individual portraits cost $500 in which you will receive 1  signed 11×14 print and 2 high-resolution files of the portrait. Please note, this does not cover the cost of animals or props – we discuss this at the time of booking and have a variety of ideas for all budgets.

“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 and or beautiful family memories to treasure for years to come.   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.”
