A collection of portraits that celebrate motherhood and family by Hills District, Sydney, photographer Cindy Cavanagh

Motherhood and Family

Life stories of the beautiful, messy, and imperfectly perfect you.

Pause for a moment and imagine this:

It's late afternoon, there's a fresh breeze on your face, but the sun is warm on your back. You are having a good hair day, and you feel a little pretty.( Yay, you!)

Your children are as wild always, and they jump out of the car looking cute as buttons. They race each other and jump through the long grass.

You chase them and sweep the littlest one up in your arms. You tickle and giggle with them.

You play games and tell wildly exaggerated stories. Everyone is unplugged and in the moment.

Legs and limbs all in a tangle. Squeals of laughter. Joy! Real joy!

As the sunsets, you throw down a picnic blanket, cuddle with one another and watch the end of a beautiful day.


This is the style of portrait session that I love to create.

Motherhood and family sessions are natural, heartfelt and filled with love.

They are fun and chaotic. They are calm and quiet. Every session is different as every family is different.

And you can use the beautiful landmarks in Sydney like the Northern beaches, the national parks, the fields of long in the Hills District or by the river in Richmond.

Or you can get cosy in your home and snuggle up on your bed to tickle and giggle with your children.

My newborn and maternity sessions celebrate this new life, your new normal, and capture all of the squishy details of your beautiful and much-loved baby.

An at home session is a calm and gentle way to tell the whole story of your new family. It is not rushed, and you will spend a lovely afternoon relaxing with your partner as you swoon over your little one.

Hand on heart, I love nothing more than to capture motherhood and the beautiful chaos of families with lifestyle sessions.

It gives me goosebumps and a natural buzz every time. It never gets old.
