Over the past few years I’ve been involved in raising money for a few local charities. Two of the fundraisers were large book projects, one called “Shire Tails” a book on dogs and their families, we raised just $1700 for Assistance Dogs Australia. The the other called “Dancers for Dandelion”, which raised $3000 for the Dandelion Support Network . So after a little thought…I’ve decided to combine the two…. yes I’m going to work with kids and animals, because apparently I like a challenge 🙂
This project Im sure will be so much fun. I’ll welcome all pets into my studio, cats, dogs, rabbits, basically any animal that brings your child and family joy. As for Dancers, I’ll love kids aged from 6mths to 18 years of age, so long as you bring along some pretty tulle…Im happy.
Im looking at putting together a photo calendar for 2020, so I will take 12 super models/dancer/ballerinas and their fur babies. I’ll dedicate my time for free to photograph the little Dancers and fur baby in my studio located in Caringbah . The participation fee will be $50 (100% of which will go to Dandelion Support Network). Each Session will receive a complimentary studio portrait experience along with their very own month in the Calendar. There will be an opportunity to have a calendar completely of your own child (but more on that later).

Who are the The Dandelion Support Network .
Dandelion Support Network is located in Caringbah and is a wonderful non profit organisation that help and support families in need by providing nursery and children’s clothing as well nursery items.
They need lots and lots of help, not just through goods donated but also financially. So lets work together and raise some much needed funds for them.
About the Calendar
The Calendar will be produced locally by an Australia Publisher not an overseas company . The above $50 is a participation fee that will go to Dandelion and does NOT include the cost of the Calendar, prints or files. The Calendar will cost approx $50 to purchase. (this is a non profit fee that will merely cover printing/production/ graphic design/delivery cost incurred by the studio). If you have any questions at all about the calendar, sessions or donation fee please feel free to contact me. Every ballerina photographed will be guaranteed a page in the Calendar. Release ETA is January 2020.
**Please be considerate, if you have no intention of purchasing the calendar (which is non profit), please leave the 1 of 12 positions available for someone who really wishes to be included and seen in print. In such cases please donate to Dandelion directly.
