Natural. Beautiful. Authentic South Coast Wedding Photography
Wedding Photography, it’s a big decision. 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 that day felt. OK so let’s do this!
What to expect when meeting with a wedding photographer
I find it best to start with a conversation so I can get a feel for what is most important to you. Do you want everything from getting ready through to dancing the night away or do you just want to capture the main events 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 2 hrs with 10 people or 10 hrs with 250? I’m very accommodating and have packages to suit whatever you need. I cover everything from shoot only to beautiful heirloom albums and art prints.
As a South Coast wedding photographer based in Jervis Bay, NSW I am happy to travel. If your wedding is a bigger journey away no worries, let’s discuss travel details. You can view more about me here

Maternity, Newborn, Family Photography
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 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 sessions are usually photographed in the photo studio in Nowra CBD. Home visits are available on request. I suggest maternity sessions to be around 34 weeks and newborn sessions to be around 10 days old. As a guide if you want smiley photos its best to wait until your baby is 4 months old. If you want them with a sibling its best to wait until they are sitting on their own so 6-10 months is ideal.
South Coast Photographer
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 take bookings several weeks in advance. There are options to postpone if someone is sick or the weather isn’t in our favour.
I offer many display options to suit your home and budget with museum standard and archival finishes. I have packages including digital files, art prints, wall art. Credit cards accepted & payment plans available allowing you to space out payments and not miss this special time.
My aim for your family photography
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 a little easier each time to go through the process.
The kids get more comfortable and so do you which means everyone is more relaxed and just having fun! 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.
Things to consider when choosing your family photographer.
Do you connect with their style ?
How long have they been photographing professionally for?
Are they experienced, educated, trained & insured?
Do they have a Working with Children Check? Are they vaccinated to work with Newborns?
Do they use professional equipment and have back ups in place?
You are trusting them with your precious memories that only happen once. Just because someone has a camera and says they are a photographer it is still up to you to ask the right questions and find out what skill level they are at to make sure you will be 100% happy with your end result.
Another thing to enquire about is what finished products they offer, quality and cost. Do they accept credit card or have payment plan options? It is always helpful if you can space out your payments over weeks or even months if needed to ensure you can capture this important milestone in your life now and not stress if you don’t have all the available funds right this minute.
When looking at products think about what you would like to pass on to your children and your grandchildren. In this digital age we are so used to having digital files but technology is changing so fast, do we really know they will still be accessible in 100 years time?
A printed photograph has already proven its worth so my advice is to always select a photographer considering everything I’ve mentioned above. Choose a photographer that will give you plenty of options to meet your requirements. One that cares and wants your family memories to last forever. Someone like me!

Hi I’m Cindy and I am a Portrait Photographer specialising in Wedding & Family Photography throughout the South Coast and Illawarra of NSW, Australia. Some of my favourite places to photograph at 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 for me is about finding little connections and catching in between moments. I love photographing people laughing & in love. Simple & authentic beauty, you all have it in you!
I believe children should be celebrated and loved ones cherished. 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 am a portrait photographer. I love spending time connecting with people, photographing their joy and laughter. 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 little pieces of photo paper hold so many memories.
Smile because happiness looks gorgeous on you.
