"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."

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

PRIVATE COMMISSIONS

Please note due to family illness, I am not presently taking family bookings.

We have two styles of bookings, JinkyLife, and JinkyArt.

JINKY LIFE : SWEET FAMILY MOMENTS

A JinkyLife session is a relaxed documentary style session that is about capturing sweet family moments. Under the JinkyLife session, you can choose to have a documentary-style shoot in your home, a relaxed session on the beach or a shoot that has all the feel of a JinkyArt session however without the personal styling. JinkyLife is all about capturing those special family moments.  The session usually takes 1-3 hours.

JINKY ART :  INDIVIDUALLY PERSONALIZED SESSION

A "JinkyArt" session is an individually personalized session and 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 lifetime collection of photographs that depict your children in a way that can be treasured for years to come.   The time of childhood fantasy through imagination is fleeting, playful, curious and so authentically your child. A moment in time truly worth embracing and capturing. Together we dream up an idea that can be big, small, dreamy or realistic. The focus is your child/ren however we can take one or two family photographs if requested.
