What Our Clients Say

Chamilka’s professionalism and passion for her work is obvious, you only need to watch her for a moment to see this. For me, her biggest talent and what I’m most appreciative for, was her ability to also use her ‘motherly instincts’ to capture the preciousness of my babies. She saw them as I see them. Such a fleeting moment is now mine forever. Thank you.

Dear Chami,
We can’t thank you enough for all the beautiful photos you continue to take for us of our growing family. You are very talented and we can’t wait to see the next lot of shots. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
~ Love the Buchanan Family xxxx ~
I cannot thank Chamilka enough for convincing me to do a maternity shoot when I was so unsure about it. She managed to do it so beautifully and tastefully. I felt like the most beautiful woman with a (very) big belly…my daughter Seher’s infant shots are like a family treasure for us. She looks like an angel in each one of them.
Chami  – you are so talented, we can’t wait for the next photo shoot with you for another special occasion in our lives.

Chamilka’s adaptability in any subject and situation is a true attribute to her talent and professionalism. She has photographed my baby, my clinic, my recipes – anything I have asked for she has been able to deliver with perfection. I’m grateful to have found such a talented photographer.

Chamilka came along to my son’s 1st birthday to take photos and for such a stressful event for myself, it was such a great relief to know that the photos were being taken care of by such a professional, but caring photographer. The photos were amazing (a mixture of semi formal to relaxed candid moments) and it was such a perfect record of a memorable day. I can’t wait until my son is old enough to share Chamilka’s photos with him and reminisce on such a special time. Thank you Chamilka for sharing your time and expertise and I look forward to having you at many future family events!

What brilliant talent you have! The kids and I both had a lot of fun during the shoot and it was very relaxed and natural. You have definitely found your calling in life. Thanks so much for giving us the chance to use it.

“I was truly grateful for the photo shoot of my daughter done by chamilka. She was so warm and the whole experience felt natural and comfortable.

I don’t usually like to have my own photo taken and I also didn’t want some staged photos. I instantly fell in love with the photos she produced as she captured both my daughter and the family so beautifully! She truly is a talented photographer and the whole photo shoot was a wonderful experience!”

~ Sohani Anderson

“We chose CJ photography not just because of the picture quality, range and expert guidance in choosing prints, but all behind the scenes stuff and Chamilka’s natural ability to connect with kids of all temperaments and ages. She manages to take the stress and effort out of the whole process with a smile and produces amazing results. You’d never guess from the photos there were toddler tantrums.  Highly recommend for families of all sizes and ages.”

~ Jeanette, Cheltenham

What a fun afternoon. Our 3 children  loved their first photo shoot with Chamilka. She made felt us all feel really relaxed and made an effort to connect with each of our children. This really brought out the best in us. I can’t wait to hang them on our walls.

We are sure to come back again. Thanks for the beautiful photos and memories.
