Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s day to everyone. It may be miserable weather out there (here in Melbourne anyway!) but all the sunshine you need is right there with you.  Either rolling around on their backs or tummies, some IN your tummies, throwing tantrums, watching TV, playing, sleeping or just plain being. Treasure them, capture them & kiss them before the years pass by too soon.

Also a massive shout-out to single dads and the all the women in the world who are mothers in nontraditional ways. All my friends who carry the same kind of love, worry and hopes for their pets, nieces, nephews, mentees, elderly parents and other dependents in their lives. Not all women were born into this world to be mothers but they were all born with nurturing instincts, which they use for the good of other life and I think that is what needs to be thanked and celebrated on Mother’s Day.

Enjoy this special day, in which ever way you were lucky enough to become a ‘mother’. xx


About Chamilka (CJ)

Chamilka Jayawardana (affectionately known as CJ to all those around her) is a Professional Photographer based in Melbourne Australia. Accredited with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP), Chamilka founded CJ Photography in 2010, which specialises in Maternity, Newborn, Children and Family Portraiture. Inspired by her children, her photography aims to capture authenticity, feeling and above all stories - intangible things that can be revisited long after the moment has passed. CJ Photography has since moved into Weddings and Commercial works as well. An equally personal driving force behind her second venture, CJ Photo Escapes, has been her cultural background and her desire to give back to the country she was born and lived in during her early years. Fluent in English and spoken Singhalese, CJ has chosen to combine her love for photography along with her love for Sri Lanka and its beautiful people, to share with the astute traveler this quaint part of the world through the eyes of the lens.
