WANTED: Happy 4 to 10-Years-Old to help raise funds for charity!

Imagine a world where every child spent their days living confident and free to be the most unique, spirited and HAPPY version of themselves.

A world where social media, school yard bullying, societal pressures or adult stresses don’t influence their wellbeing.

And I’m sure there is one thing as parents we can all agree on, we just want our kids to be … HAPPY.

Hi! I’m Alan Moyle from Photobat. And I’m on a mission.

This International Children’s Week, I’m on a mission to help build kids confidence, allowing their own special kind of AWESOME to shine through.

How will I do this? Through the magic of PHOTOGRAPHS.

When kids see themselves in Photographs, they get this INSTANT confidence boost as well as a sense of pride and belonging.

They’re totally chuffed and impressed with how COOL they are.

Seeing these Photographs daily is a reminder of how AWESOME and loved they are!

THIS is the SUPERPOWER of Photographs.

Photographs show kids how the world REALLY sees them – cheeky, fun, adventurous, crazy, creative … HAPPY. 

Seeing photographs of themselves cultivates self-love and reminds them THEY ARE LOVED.

The Happy 2024 Project includes:

Total Value $585 for only $85
Price including a $50 donation and $35 for the book.

IMPORTANT: We only have 20 places available for this project, when they are gone we can’t open more due to exhibition space. 

Here is a chance to do something special for your kids and support a worthy cause in the process.

We will be deciding on the cause closer to the date, last year we raised over $1000 for Life’s Little Treasures



Please fill in your details and we will be in touch once we launch this project in late August. Filling in this form will get your first dibs on being part of the happiness.

PLUS goodie bag for the kids at the Exhibition launch.

Ready help your kid's confidence and raise some funds for premature babies and their families?

Nice words from some of our awesome families.

What is a Photobat? And who is this Alan guy?

Hi, I’m Alan the photographer and everything else at Photobat. I’m a life long photographer, starting in grade 5! I’m a Dad, husband and pet wrangler or two cats and a gassy dog. I often subject my family to dress in onesies for family photos.

I grew up being dragged each year to portrait studios and made to sit on a weird couch, put my arm awkwardly on my brother (who smells) and say “CHEESE” into the camera as a man squeezed a little squeaky toy. I didn’t like that and that is why I choose to take portraits that are full of fun and personality! Nothing boring! 

It’s why I often have to change my clothes at the end of a session (wet, dirty and often a mix of both). I love channeling a families energy, fun and uniqueness into fun sessions and then turn them into artwork that make you smile and your friends say “That’s so you” when they see them on your wall.
