No doubt you’ve heard about Babies in Bonnets, an annual Heartstory photography project which since we started in 2019 has raised nearly $50,000 for Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Australia (PANDA)

Having now completed all the gorgeous baby sessions for 2021, and the design of the book, we are doing the very last thing: deciding which adorable baby is going to star on the front cover! AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!

How to vote

We have done a mock up cover for every baby in the book, and we are giving YOU the opportunity to vote for your favourite! The design with the most votes will be THE COVER for our amazing book!!! As a bonus, this means that the lucky family with the most votes will have not just ONE photo in our book but TWO, because we will choose a second image to go on their feature spread. And we will also gift that lucky family an extra copy of the book!!!

Plus, for taking the time to vote for your favourite cover, you could win a $400 Heartstory Family Photography Experience for your own family! How cool is that? 

Voting is open to everyone, but you can only enter once!

Review our adorable cover babies in the slideshow below, make a note of the name/number you want to vote for, and then scroll down to complete the voting form!

PLUS, get a DOUBLE vote by donating!

If you donate $5 or more to PANDA via our My Cause page during the voting period (29 September to 11 October), we will give a double vote to the baby you choose!

We are still short of our 2021 goal so we need your help! Perinatal Anxiety and Depression affects 1 in 5 mothers and 1 in 10 fathers in Australia and the money we raise goes directly towards supporting struggling parents and getting them the help they need, as well as supporting our health professionals who work with parents. The work PANDA does is so very needed, especially since the pandemic started – we all know someone who has been through this. 

Pop over to My Cause via the button below, donate to your favourite baby, then come back and fill out the voting form.
