Heartfelt is a volunteer organisation of professional photographers from all over Australia who dedicate their skills to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature births, or have children with serious and terminal illnesses.

José Navarro, digital coordinator at Wrest Point and an experienced photographer, volunteers to attend maternity hospitals to capture tender moments that would otherwise go unrecorded.

José nominated Heartfelt to receive a $1000 donation from Federal Group as part of its Helping Hand program.

Hobart Heartfelt coordinator Steve Lovegrove said they were “delighted” to receive the support.

“We are really grateful for this donation from Federal Group,” Mr Lovegrove said.

“This will pay for 15-odd photography sessions, which will have a lasting and positive effect on families who are going through a tough time.”
