supporting our community
Supporting our community is important to Kirra Photography. We want our children to grow in a village that cares, empowers and nurtures them.
So as part of our ethos, Kirra Photography donates a large amount of time and profit to giving back.
One of the ways Kirra Photography supports the community is through community group fundraising efforts.
We aim to hold two fundraisers per year.
If you would like to support a fundraiser or if you have a community group that would benefit from some much needed funds, please check out below!

Our first born was in the Royal children’s hospital. Lilah Jane she passed away at 3 weeks old due to a Vascular Malformation, she’s my butterfly. She spent her whole life in the butterfly ward (NICU) at RCH. Born at LRH we quickly realised there was something going on with our baby and at only a few hours old she was flown to The Royal Children’s Hospital, we were lucky enough to stay in the hospital with our baby the whole time she was there thanks to Ronald McDonald House charity. The doctors and nurses there are angels, they never treated Lilah like she was a terminally ill patient. They would make us eat, drink & sleep when we really didn’t want to but definitely needed too. They pushed me to hold her on days where I was so depressed I felt I couldn’t go on. They pushed me to get photos, give her baths, to keep expressing milk for her so I could nourish her body while I still had her here with me & while I couldn’t understand at the time why I would ever want such heartbreaking memories, I understand now and I’m so grateful that they knew what was best for us when I didn’t. I will forever be grateful to The Royal Children’s hospital for everything they did for my beautiful daughter and my husband and I. And now thanks to them and there encouragement I will have photos, handprints, footprints, hand-me-downs and other special memories I will be able share with my second born daughter Aila Louise.
I’ll never be able to fully put into words the effect our time at the RCH had on me or my family but I will always advocate, fundraise or do whatever I can to raise awareness about how important and how special of a place it is.
Over the years our fundraising sessions have been designed to raise much needed funds for the Royal Children's Hospital and Monash Children's Hospitals that care for our little ones. We have raised over $10,000 with your support! We believe that supporting the hospitals is still so vitally important. However we have changed the way we do this. Instead of donations from fundraising sessions (which will now be dedicated to a local community group), we will instead be donating a portion of every single photography session and wedding we capture throughout the year.
