National Family Portrait Month is back for 2021
This photography project is all about celebrating the bonds of those close to us :-)
Once again we are excited to be supporting this amazing project and this year we will help raise $10,000 for Make A Wish. National Family Portrait Month began in 2016 and since then has raised over $150,000 for amazing charities.
Duet Images has been selected as one of the photographers around Australia to photograph Mums & Dads with their children, to raise funds for Make A Wish.
From now until Friday 31st July 2021, we are looking for loving parents and their Children, to be photographed for an upcoming limited edition Publication called "A Mothers Love". This publication will be a fundraiser for Make A Wish and will be a celebration of loving families around Australia.
