What the future holds

As the saying goes: “Babies are such a nice way to start people” and this little cutie was no exception.  Such a beautifully natured boy, he seemed to know nothing but happiness. His curiosity was heartwarming, his fascination was endearing and most of all his happiness was contagious. As with such innocent life, even the most basic of things filled his little world with wonder – his mum’s voice, a stranger playing peek-a-boo, his dad’s toes, everything, anything…

As he left the studio, I couldn’t help but feel that pang of nostalgia I often get after being with such cute babies and their beaming creators. I guess that is both the perk and the curse of this job.

All the best, my dearest one.  If those two hours was a small glimpse into your future, then I see it being very, very bright – filled with happiness, more love than you will possibly know what to do with and I suspect a whole lot of growing ahead of you…



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.
