Little Adults

Once in a while I get to photograph a brand new life that looks unusually distinctive for their short time on this earth…what I call a little adult.  They don’t look like any other baby but a miniature version of their adult self. Precious, little Jaiden was just that.

Newborns are etched in my memory for various reasons: their size, their heavy cheeks, their head full of hair, their crying, their heavy slumber… the list goes on. But I didn’t come away thinking he reminded me of a previous baby.  I think I’ll always just remember him as looking like Jaiden: sultry creamy skin, perfect eye lashes, a totally adorable mouth and a button cute nose. Despite the silence, his features spoke volumes of the personality he’s yet to become.

Congratulations Nikoli and Adrian on your perfect little miracle that is Jaiden. There’s absolutely nothing more you could’ve asked for in beginning your new family together.

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.
