Natural. Beautiful. Authentic South Coast Wedding Photography
Wedding Photography made easy for you. Congratulations, you’ve found your one true love and you’re ready to run off into the sunset together…
BUT WAIT… you want to capture it so you can look back when you’re old and grey, smile and share with your children and grandchildren.
You know even if you lose your mind and your looks you will still have these images to remind you both of how wonderful the day felt (ok and how damn good you both looked!).
What to expect when looking for a wedding photographer
Personally I like to start with a conversation so I can get a feel for what is important to you both. It’s such an emotionally charged day and you want to know you’ve chosen the right person to share this with. You can view more about me here
So do you want everything from getting ready through to dancing the night away or do you only want to capture the ceremony, family & couple photos? Everyone is different and I understand that so I’m happy to work with you and your budget.
Is your wedding an elopement? Is it 3 hrs with 10 guests or 10 hrs with 250 guests? It doesn’t matter, I’m very accommodating and have packages to suit whatever you need. I cover everything from digital files to beautiful heirloom albums and fine art prints.
How far do you travel?
As a South Coast wedding photographer based in Jervis Bay, NSW I service as far as Sydney, Canberra, Bowral & the Blue Mountains but am also happy to travel interstate & international. If your wedding is a bigger journey away no worries, let’s discuss travel details.
How soon do we need to book you?
I usually take bookings 12-18 months in advance so get in contact now to avoid missing out. 2019 is already filling up and I’ve opened books for 2020. Fill in your details on the Contact page and send me your questions and I’ll be in touch within 24hrs.(or else technology has failed us and then I’d suggest trying again!)
Once you have decided to book, a non- refundable booking fee will secure your wedding date and then the planning begins!

Maternity, Newborn, Family Photography
South Coast Photographer
Live Photography Australia specialises in Family photography on location and maternity and newborn photography in the studio. Everyone is different and I am guided by you & your children. I am extremely patient and I guarantee results! Sessions last 30- 90 mins depending on how many people I am photographing and their ages.
Maternity & Newborn Info
Maternity & Newborn sessions are usually photographed in the photo studio in Nowra CBD. Offering beautiful soft natural light and signature studio lighting. If you want to be extra pampered then we can arrange a professional blow dry at a local salon for sessions booked Tuesday- Friday.
I suggest maternity sessions to be around 34 weeks because this is when you are at your best shape. Sessions can be with a partner or other children or just you!
Newborn sessions can be around 10 days old for images of them in your hands, looking all wrinkly and sleepy. I do not over style or pose babies and strongly believe in keeping the session real & authentic.
Want to wait until your baby is starting to resemble you? Filled out a little bit more cuteness and you are more settled with your routine? Then I’d suggest 6-10 weeks old.
If its smiles you want to capture then make your booking for when your baby will be 4-6 months old. I’ll capture those big beautiful eyes looking up at yours.
Finally if you want to photograph them with a sibling its best to wait until they are sitting up on their own so 6-10 months is ideal. This is such a gorgeous age and you will get many cute expressions & laughs, I guarantee!
Family Photography Info
For family photography sessions where your youngest is 1yr or older I love to shoot on location and have a few special spots I can recommend. I usually choose a beach or a park setting depending on what suits your family. There are no restrictions on family size so it might just be you and your child, a family of 5 or an extended family of 20.
I take bookings 3-12 weeks in advance. There are options to postpone if someone is sick or the weather isn’t in our favour.
How do we get our photos?
I offer many display options to suit your home with museum standard and archival finishes. I have packages including digital files, art prints, signature wall art. My service and product is guaranteed to last generations.
Payments can be made with credit cards & payment plans are available, allowing you to space out payments and not miss this special time of life. Enquire for more info.
Choosing a family photographer for life
Choosing a family photographer is something you only want to do once. I believe when you find the right person they should be able to document your family over the years. Getting to know your photographer and what to expect from a session makes it more meaningful each time. As an added bonus your artwork and photos remain consistent. Allowing you to add to a photo wall or decorate your home with photos that work well together over the years.

Hi I’m Cindy an award winning Portrait Photographer specialising in Wedding & Family Photography servicing the South Coast and Illawarra of NSW, Australia. Some of my favourite places to photograph are in Jervis Bay, Culburra Beach, Berry, Gerringong, Kiama, Wollongong, Bulli & my studio in Nowra.
When I’m not photographing, you can find me with my dogs in the bush or at the beach. I make sure to take time out of this crazy digital life to step back into nature and reset.
Why I chose to be a wedding & family photographer
Photography is something I’ve been in love with all my life. For me its a way of sharing all the beauty in each person I meet. Capturing all those important moments that happen daily between you and your loved ones, that usually go undocumented.
I’m here to give you the gift of time. To show you the simple & authentic beauty you have in you.
It is so positive to be surrounded by beautiful, meaningful images everyday that tell your story. For you now, for your children and for those yet to come.
This is why I love portrait photography. I love spending time connecting with people and allowing them to be just the way they are. Seeing something beautiful and unique in everyone.
I am grateful to do what I love everyday. It makes my heart burst creating images that will one day be part of family history. These pieces of photo paper hold so many memories.
So smile, because happiness looks gorgeous on you.
