About

Welcome to the Kids of Melbourne Charity Book Project.

We are excited about our third year of the project photographing Melbourne kids and supporting our chosen charity TLC for kids. This is an invitation to take part in this opportunity to have your children photographed by Suzette Nesire and help raise funds for TLC for kids. The project raised $15000 for TLC over the past two years and would love you to get involved.

To be a part of Kids of Melbourne the participation fee is $150 per family on application. You receive a personalised photographic session with Portraits By Suzette and are guaranteed inclusion in the next Kids of Melbourne coffee table book produced. The added bonus is the $150 participation fee gets donated directly to TLC for kids.

Payment of the Participation Fee is required to confirm two appointments with the studio. One for your portrait session at a time that suits the children. The second is to return to the studio and choose your favorite image to feature image for the book.

Please Note: The participation fee is non refundable at any time and your appointments must be completed within 30 days of payment.

Photographic Experience

Sessions will take place at Suzette’s studio in Malvern as well as selected locations across Melbourne. Her studio is an idyllic, natural light space, complete with cobblestone courtyard and garden. The space is designed specifically for children, it’s a fun environment where toddlers and older children can feel comfortable – allowing them to do what they do best. Be Kids!

Your session will generally take an hour of time, it allows the children to get comfortable and familiar and for Suzette to capture fun images.

Talking to everyone before your session is of great importance, we like to about your children, their interests and what clothing will suit. After these conversations lots of ideas evolve which in turn make your session more personalized, more about your children. It also gives us variation in the final book.

After your Session

Over the past three years we have discovered that many people love there images and ask to order photographs, we have to say that’s music to our ears.

We start from single mounted images at $248. Fully framed artwork is also a part of our collection whether it be traditional or a canvas option. With you we can create something that suits your home décor and budget. 

Orders are paid and confirmed at the second appointment time with all decision makers present. We highly recommend this time to be a childfree appointment where possible. Full payment is required when placing your order with a four week delivery. Payment can be in the form of cash, cheque, eftpos, visa, or mastercard. Payment plan can also be arranged with the studio.

Your copy of your Kids of Melbourne Book can also be purchased at this time for $195.

The Book

Kids of Melbourne Book Project produces a limited edition hard covered, hand bound coffee table book when places are filled. It will be available on a pre-paid basis for $195. Book release to be announced.

The Charity

TLC For Kids. Their focus is predominantly on children & families that have fallen through the gaps of existing support services. They work closely with the medical fraternity on providing immediate assistance for children in hospitals. From the most practical daily needs that we take for granted to the specialty of the ‘distraction box’ that is available in over 400 hospitals Australia wide. This provides a distraction to nurture the emotional wellbeing of kids undergoing medical treatment.

Kids of Melbourne are very proud of the achievements over the past three years and would love you and your family to get involved.
