Sydney-based luxury portrait experience with fashion and fine art photographer Cindy Kavanagh


A once-in-a-lifetime VIP shoot experience, capturing a moment in your life forever. Transformative and empowering – an expression of your best self.

The Modern Muse makes cover-style portraits available to ALL women, no matter your age, size or personal insecurity. Cindy's portraits transform and empower, not to mention they're also a whole lot of fun! Experience the excitement of a fashion shoot where you’ll be attended to by top hair, make-up and fashion stylists in looks usually reserved for red carpet attendees and magazine cover stars. A truly glamourous experience where The Modern Muse team ensure you feel comfortable and confident throughout. Then have your favourite shot mounted as a piece of wall art or other keepsake for an experience that you’ll never forget. 

The Archetypes

To help you decide on a type of portrait or portrait story, we’ve developed 12 styles based on 12 feminine archetypes. Are you The Purist, The Huntress, or The Wanderer? You may find yourself completely drawn to one or you may see yourself as a combination of two or three. Together we'll discuss the archetypes that inspire you most and the story you'd like to convey.


 Once your images are chosen, turn them into a lasting artwork for your home; as a framed print or editorial-inspired album.

The Modern Muse by Cindy Kavanagh

"Shooting with Cindy was surreal in the best way. I feel like she turned me into an art piece. It’s such a revelation to break beyond the confines of my insecurity and be able to lose myself in the moment. The finished photos are stories within themselves. I feel so grateful to have been able to have this experience.”
