Beautiful Heart Project

Introducing my Beautiful Heart Project


The Beautiful Heart Project is a free session offer for children experiencing hardship, illness, or with special needs.  Meet Stevie – he’s 17 months and has Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21).

Since I started as a photographer back in 2010, some of my most meaningful photo sessions have been with families doing it tough.  From families with a terminally ill parent, to children with severe disabilities – photography means so much to them.

For many of these families they are under a lot of pressure.  Emotionally and financially.  Professional photography is often last on a long list of wants and needs.  So.. I thought about the ways that I can make a difference.  That’s when I came up with the Beautiful Heart Project.

Each month I’ll select one family for the project.  Included will be a free mini portrait session and high-resolution digital files of their child/family.  Sessions will take place at my beautiful photography studio in Balmain (Sydney Inner West).

For more information, please get in touch and tell me about your family situation (or nominate someone you know about).

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi! I'm Amy Tong. I'm a newborn baby photographer in the Sydney Inner West surburb of Balmain, Australia. I'm Mum to 3 little ones, and wife to my best friend of almost 20 years. I've always been creative. A lover of music, art and history. Photography has been an important part of my life since I first picked up a camera as a hobby back in 2008.


I began my career as a professional baby photographer back in 2012 and have had the honour of photographing over 300 babies since then.
To me, photography allows us to preserve moments in time for future generations. I can't think of any better job in the world. I'd love to hear from you and help you hold on to these special moments too..
