How can I help you tell your family’s story?

Want to remember that baby tooth smile, divine curls, little hands, toes ?

Want to watch your little ones dance, ponder and laugh in front of the camera?

Want to learn how to freeze time? 

The laugh between siblings, dancing with Granddad, cuddle with mum and grandma, tickling dad.

You’ll have a relaxing and fun experience while I create stunning portraits that celebrate you and the beautiful family you have.

You will get to watch the little personalities emerge in front of my camera.

I adore the detail shots, the in-between moments, and the family connection in an un-posed, natural way.



The Moments Family Session is for mum, dad, brothers, sisters, grandparents who want to freeze a moment in time.

We want you to look back at these images 50 years from now and feel all the love and connection.

Capturing the journey of your growing family is just incredible and I'm privileged to be a part.

The Moments Family Session is for mum, dad, brothers, sisters, grandparents who want to freeze a moment in time. Quite often, even the family fur baby dog comes along.

Capturing the journey from pregnancy > newborn > older baby > growing family is just incredible and I'm privileged to be a part.

The STYLE
My style of photography is natural, timeless and minimalistic, with an emphasis on each person and your connection as a family.

The best portraits are artistically simple without overpowering props or unnatural posing.

Sometimes it can get a bit mad in session, sometimes it is calm and quiet. It all depends on the kids and I'm fine with it any way. I have seen it all and thoroughly enjoy every session.

The STUDIO
All family sessions take place at my natural light studio in Blackrock village, South County Dublin.

Your family's comfort and safety are the most important aspects of the session. Family sessions can last up to 2 hours depending on who is here.

I only use natural materials and everything is washed after each session with detergents that are free of harsh chemicals. We have implemented additional COVID-related precautions with an OZONE sanitation machine that runs overnight before the session. Only one session per day. Thermometers, hand sanitiser and masks. 


ENJOYING YOUR ART
I offer high quality fine art prints, image boxes, albums, and elegant framed wall collections so you can thoroughly enjoy your beautiful memories.

I can advise you on designing a family gallery of photos using hi-tech application that models your room.

All products are of the highest quality sourced in Ireland and Europe. They'll become your family heirlooms to pass down through generations.

Digital files are included as backups to printed art.

GRANDPARENTS
I've always loved when the grandparents come to the family sessions. But after the insane year of 2020, I feel their presence is even more valuable.

I always ask if I can take just simple portraits of them without the children too. 

Maybe it's because I was so close to my own grandparents, that these portraits always pull at my heart and make me smile.

What's nice about Blackrock is that they can potter around and have a coffee and drop in at the beginning or end of the session if they don't want to stay the whole time.



RETOUCHING
Retouching is funny word. I would never alter anything about you or your children, it’s unnecessary.

But I do specialise in the detailed skin editing needed for to achieve a clean, natural look. I can handle jaundice, baby acne, scratches, bruises, biscuit crumbs - even undereye dark circles thanks to reduced sleep!

This professional level of retouching is included in your session.

SCHEDULING
Family sessions can be scheduled anytime for a special occasion or birthday, or for no reason at all.

Two weeks following your session, you’re invited back to the studio for the Viewing Session to see your images and decide on the products you love.



INVESTMENT

A Family Session starts with a €250 retainer deposit that secures your date and is modifiable, but non-refundable.

On average, most clients invest around €1000 on heirloom, high-end beautiful products that I source in Ireland and around Europe.

The most important thing to remember is that you only purchase the images you love. 

I’m looking forward to meeting you and your family. I love seeing my families year after year to see how everyone has grown. It’s an honour and privilege to document family stories in this way.
