CJ Photography was founded in 2010 by Chamilka Jayawardana. Affectionately known as ‘CJ’, she is a Professional Photographer based on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.  With three children of her own, the business has strong roots in family portraiture. Over the years, it has diversified into Travel and Commercial photography, with jobs both in Australia and overseas.

Accredited with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP), CJ is a versatile photographer, known especially for her warm and welcoming personality . She gets the best out of children for candid family portraiture, manages families and bridal parties to achieve beautiful wedding photography and equally serves her corporate clients with a hassle free approach to delivery outcome. Her photography aims to capture authenticity, feeling and above all ‘stories’ – intangible things that can not be conveyed by written word. CJ’s children and her love of travel are constant sources of inspiration for her hard work and dedication to growing the business.

In more recent times CJ’s husband Guy has been active within the business and is now committed full-time to CJ Photography, taking on a range of technical and administrative functions including working with Drone photography. Guy has extensive experience in the corporate world with key aspects of leadership and interpersonal skills and an ability to explain technical things in easy to understand terms.

CJ Photography is a true family business and combines the skills, knowledge, passion and personalities of CJ and Guy to provide you with an experience not just a photo session.

“It is important that we all recognise how fleeting time is. As a mother of three children, capturing life is more important to me than ever. My work allows me the privilege of helping you capture and document your journey.  Taking candid portraits that speak a thousand words, providing you with a luxury you want to indulge in.

This is my story – I look forward to hearing yours … and perhaps capturing it one day for you.”
