About Little Love Photography

”With over a decade of experience photographing thousands of shoots, we feel privileged to be behind the camera to tell so many stories.”

Cristina Mahony, Owner and Photographer




Little Love Photography is a small but busy, vibrant photography studio based in Sydney, Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula! 

Little Love was born out of my passion (obsession?) with all things photography. Mastering the art of film, a switch to digital opened up a whole new world of portrait photography, ultimately leading to the launch of Little Love Photography in 2009. Those early days involved shooting lots of lovely families in my home studio, on the back deck of my house. Before long, family shoots had grown into wedding photography, in all corners of the country!

Little Love has been privileged to photograph humans from all walks of life. We have been lucky enough to work with glowing pregnant women to clients suffering terminal diagnoses, with all sorts of cute, quirky and interesting in between. We have photographed in innumerable homes, in offices, on city streets, at parks, beaches and lagoons, atop of mountains, in caves, on boats, under water, in bushland, on farms, in zoos, at airports, in shops, hotels, galleries, schools, in hospitals, restaurants, vineyards, studios, commercial kitchens, in theatres, factories and even in ‘the cloud’! With all types of conditions to match! Each with their unique story to tell, captured in a creative, soulful and beautiful way. 

Whether it is simply an updated family photo album, a new baby’s arrival, an elopement, a surprise party or a brand story, Little Love Photography is the safe bet for capturing your photographic story. We thrive on making your shoot bright, happy and fun, delivering both a friendly, memorable experience and photos you really will love.

Hope to see your smiling faces one day soon!

  • "Hi Cris, I just saw the photos 5 minutes ago and I don’t know what to say. I bawled my eyes out from start to finish - they are a thousand times better than I hoped for and I am eternally grateful! I’m just so happy... and emotional! Thanks again! So so happy! :) Mike absolutely loves them & thanked me for pushing him to do them!"
