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 Family Portraiture and Boutique weddings. Since, she has also opened a travel photography business with CJ Photo Escapes. Her photography aims to capture authenticity, feeling and above all stories – intangible things that can be revisited long after the moment has passed. Her children have been the main inspiration for her hard work and dedication to growing her business.
“All my life, I’ve taken an interest in photography and the joy it brought people. Yet it was not until becoming a parent, I realised how fleeting time is and the importance of documenting life.
My work allows parents the luxury of stepping back and appreciating their little ones – something that we often forget to do amidst all the hard work of parenthood.
Three children later, capturing life is more important to me than ever. Candid portraits that speak a thousand words. Memories that you look forward to revisiting time and time again. 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.
