Compassion * Hope * Determination

Desire Images is much more than just a photo session. Its is allowing a safe space for individuals of all ages, shapes and sizes to unearth their identity and potential. 

My Vision is for kids to know how valuable they are, that they are loved, and we can see that they will change the world”

I know that when I take a photo of your child, of your family, that every time you look at that photo on the wall, you know that you are loved. I know that you are going to have an amazing experience.  I know that I can work with anyone, young or old and create for you something special. 

I know that there will be laughter. I know there will be peace. 

Kids crazy, nervous teen angst – relax: I got this. 

No matter what goes on, no matter what is happening in your life, we will absolutely rock your photoshoot. This is your time in the studio. There is no stress here. I totally go with the flow. I know that these photos of you and your children are going to love.

They are going to give you hope that the world has a chance. That the world is going to be safe in the hands of our kids. Our kids are the faces of tomorrow. I know that my photos have an important place in today – by encouraging them, by breaking the cycle of negativity, we can change the world together. 

I know how important it is for you to be in the photographs. I know that every day is not guaranteed. One day, your family and friends are going to look for photos of you- what are they going to find? 

Photos together – as a family are so encouraging, it doesn’t matter what hell on earth it took to get everyone together and clean- you are here, and you are present in this moment.

As a photography studio based in Ipswich QLD, we specialise in indoor studio portraits. There is no need to worry about what the weather is doing, or time of day, everything is controlled. 🙂

I am particularly passionate about Photographing the students at Special Schools. It is the desire to give the youth the best photo we can of them for them – as well as their family that drives.

Everything Desire Images does stems back to our Studio motto: Compassion, Hope, Determination.

Professional Services

Desire Images service many different markets.

As well as photographing Children, Families, Mums, Dads, and Newborns, we also service Schools, Corporate Events, Headshots and Business Portfolios. Fast, efficient and professional. 

Service and value are core to Desire Images. Kate, alongside her staff members, work together with schools and businesses to listen to your needs and deliver them in a timely, streamlined manner.

Our headshot service is efficient, professional and flexible to your requirements. We can photograph at your office, regional meeting, or our studio. Whatever makes it easy for you. We are used to photographing a high volume of people quickly so if you only have time in-between seminars or only a couple of minutes per person, then we can make it work. 

If you would rather spend some time with a more personalized session, our studio session would be more suited.

In both the studio and onsite sessions, we will look after

*Lighting to highlight your best features

*Guidance on how to sit/stand, where to put your hands, and where to look.

*View your images as they are taken so you can adjust anything you don’t like
•*Select your images straight after the session
*A Black and white as well as Colour version of all selected images
*Post-production on all selected images (colour & exposure correction, blemish removal and light skin softening)
*Full reproduction rights

Faces of Tomorrow!

Today I choose to love myself. I choose to be kind to me. I often get caught up in all the chaos and noise around me. I am constantly bombarded with words and images of how I should be, what I should be, who I should be, but not today. Today I choose to be kind. I choose to love who I am.
I choose to have hope. 

The more youth we can get to stand together in unity and shout, whisper, stand in all the determination and solidarity, the louder we will be. Our message will not be put out. It’s time now change, and that time is now. We will not tolerate hate. We will not tolerate comparing ourselves to others. We will stand firm in the knowledge that we are enough. We are the faces of tomorrow. 

To the youth of today, it is up to you to Rise up and be the faces of tomorrow. You are the ones that are going to break the cycle of negativity and self-shame. You have seen the generations before you mess it all up, and for that, I apologise. We need to #standtogether and #riseup face tomorrow head-on.

Before your photoshoot, we will have a chat about what makes you, you.

What makes your child tick. I believe that by giving our youth a positive experience, it will serve to help as a grounding as they go through the perils of teenagehood.

Have a think, for example, does your daughter love sparkly dresses or is she more of a tomboy? Does she love jeans, or maybe superheroes?

I want her to feel like herself, and for her and her friends to feel like models for the day. The girls will be talking about this day for years to come! It is an experience they will never forget! Too often we get caught in all the flashy “Insta” and “snapped” posts around, we forget what is real.

The day will be filled with sugar (delicious snacks) & spice & all things nice (hair, light age-appropriate make-up) and a photo shoot and lots and lots of laughter)!

What can make it even more perfect? Inviting 2 (or more) friends to share it all with. This will give the kids something positive to bond over.

Or perhaps this is a perfect way to spend the afternoon as mother and daughter? Or mother and son? How special will these memories be both now and in the future?

I would love to provide a beautiful, fun day for the special child in your life to celebrate who they are, along with their closest friends.
Let’s celebrate their uniqueness and create beautiful photos that will be treasured forever.

Lets’ have a chat about how we can create a full-service portrait session for your child!
