Mums & Their Kids
National Family
Po​​​​rtrait Month 2019

Because it's about time you were present in your family photos!

Lilypad Photography is helping to raise $20,000 

for Make-A-Wish Australia

During the month of July 2019, photographers across Australia are looking for Mothers and their children to be photographed for an upcoming book called "A Mother and her Children . . . A Loving Bond."

I spend my life enticing and capturing smiles, giggles and joy for Perths families. To be able to raise funds for a foundation that brings smiles and giggles to the faces of children who are suffering from life-threatening illnesses, and joy to their whole families, feels more than right.   

Most of my clients & friends know I'm equally as passionate about making sure us Mum's exist in their family story.  Mum and I were the designated photographers in our family. When Mum died suddenly when I was 24, it soon became apparent that the number of photos of us together could be counted on less than one hand. I can't tell you what I wouldn't give to change that now.  

Don't wait, those excuses just don't matter. It's time to be in the photos with your kids, for them.  Let me make you look amazing and capture that love, forever.    

Lisa, Kid wrangler & photographer.

I was a bit worried we would feel awkward and wouldn’t get any natural looking shots, you put us all at ease and had some great tricks up your sleeve with the kids! We ended up with lots of natural looking photos. Now we have some beautiful photos to pass on to our family and children..... and for once all for of us are in the picture!!!

Lisa was fantastic, made having our pics taken so easy, half the time we were just messing around and she managed to get some awesome shots. Lisa has plenty of ideas of how to make the shot happen and make everyone relaxed and natural. So so happy with our photos. Thank you so much Lisa you did a fantastic job, I am absolutely stoked with the photos that you took.

Katherine Evans

Elizabeth Vos

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! The photos are simply beautiful, I have a tear in my eye.

Wow Lisa!! Flawless!!!!! What an amazing gallery. You have come through shining once again. That is why you are the best at what you do. Captured what I was after perfectly.

Everything is amazing, you did a wonderful job of capturing our little family.The canvas is already up on the lounge room wall and the autumn colours match our lounge perfectly. We were blown away with the quality of the album and the crystal mounts. Thank you so much, I love it all! I might not be able to wait until Christmas to give the grandparents their photos, might cave in well before then.
