I’m Cindy, an award winning portrait photographer specialising in wedding & family photography. I was given my first camera at the age of 10 and was convinced I wanted to become a photographer then and there. I found it absolute magic that I could freeze time to look at again later.
I moved from Sydney to the South Coast of NSW in 2013 to live the slower life and be surrounded by nature. This gave me space to commit all my time to running my business and provide my photography services to the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and Southern Highlands. I do travel outside of these regions, so if you’re a little further no worries, get in contact for travel info.
Some of my favourite places to photograph are in Ulladulla, Jervis Bay, Culburra Beach, Berry, Gerringong, Kiama, Wollongong, Bulli & at the photography studio in Nowra CBD.
When I’m not working, you can find me walking at the beach, watching sunsets, playing ball with my dogs, camping somewhere remote or attempting to sail with my sea loving hubby. I make sure to take time out of this crazy digital life & step back into nature to reset.
Why I chose to be a wedding & family photographer
Wedding & Family Photography bring me so much joy. Such milestones in someones life and the fact they trust me to be there with them and capture it keeps me humble. I like to bring a calm energy to what can be chaos at times. Nothing really fazes me, I’m grounded and happy most of the time!
I believe It is positive to be surrounded by images that tell your story. For children (the miracles they are) to see themselves celebrated on the wall, to know they are loved. For couples to see themselves connecting with each other, grounding them in their relationship. For all the generations still to come, to be able to see their ancestry.
This is why I love portrait photography and am grateful everyday this is my job. It makes my heart burst creating images that will touch hearts and one day be a connection to the past. To happy times, significant moments. Stolen glances and warm embraces.You are all beautiful.
