Our Projects

The heART Project was officially launched in April 2016. Please click below to learn more about the families we’ve met, and the projects we’ve completed so far.

Free To Fly

Little Taliyah Griffin is unable to walk or talk. We were able to free her from the constraints of her mystery illness and turn her into a beautiful butterfly.

Heart of a Lion

This follow-up photo of Taliyah shows her in a wildlife wonderland surrounded by her favourite animals, after a trip was gifted to her by a charity.

2016 Christmas Wish

30 sick kids at Monash Children’s Hospital thought they were getting an ordinary Santa photo, but it turned out to be much more special!

Life with Half A Brain

Inspirational teenager Karley Miller, who has had half her brain removed, dreamed of being a photographer. So we made that dream happen.

Dare To Dream

Teen Josh Thomas has a rare condition that sees his health rapidly deteriorating. He would love shoot hoops with his assistance dog, and did that with a little help from Photoshop.

Fly Away To Neverland

Sienna Cordell is one of three triplets, but was born with Cerebal Palsy. Her parents wanted to see their daughter able to play with her siblings.

The Strength Of A Wrestler

Jacqui Griffin was the recipient of our very first The heART Project – a beautiful photo of her daughter Tahliyah. 12 months on she has paid it forward, creating a beautiful image for a special boy she was introduced to.

SJ and Hamish - Adventure Mother

Two photographers, Von Wong and Karen Alsop have joined forces to complete a photography project for Sarah-Jane “SJ” Staszak, an inspirational woman who woke up from surgery to find she had become a quadriplegic.

The Get Well Tree

12 Photographers from The Heart Project come together to share the story of Evie and Indy, who fought leukaemia and WON! The full project will be released in October
