Welcome to Desire Images

Welcome to Desire Images,

My mission is to Empower all through photography. Reconnecting one family at a time. 

I photograph Children, Families, Mums, Dads, Newborns, Schools,
Corporate Events, Headshots, Business Portfolios.

I create magnificent pieces for you to enjoy for generations to come.
Freezing a moment in time.

Desire Images was born to celebrate women, and all those she loves. Throughout this journey, she has taken on a life of her own and continually teaches me lots of things.

There are lots of aspects of this journey. From studio portraits at talent agencies, family photos in Ipswich, Brisbane and surrounds, styling bespoke photograph collections of your kids, to taking time and compassion with students for Special School photos, and corporate events and headshots, myself and my team are versatile and excited to assist you with all your photographic needs.

I have a Bachelor of  Social Science, majoring in Counseling and Drama. 

Over the years I have won several international photographic awards.

As a mum myself, I understand the craziness that is around children. In our household, I have 3 kids, 2 cats, 2 dogs, a guinea pig, and a husband
(Haha). I seriously understand crazy. I know that time to myself is rare, I would like you to have time to breathe, take time to regroup. It is ok to be you.

My husband is my rock.  My kids are my world. The importance of existing in photographs is something I cannot stress enough. What would happen if you were not there? Would your children, husband (and generations to come) have physical photographs to remember you by?

I have been photographing now for over 10 years. It is a crazy ride. I love it.

My desire is to share an amazing experience with you and your family.  I want daughters to feel the fire within them. I want you to feel the passion, feel the lift that getting beautiful portraits of yourself and your family does.  I want to give young girls and the chance to feel valued, a chance to see themselves as others see them.

Desire Images is a place to help find your center.

“What is your desire?”



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”

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 flexiable 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
* All business headshot prices inclusive of GST and are payable in advance of the session

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!
