How do you freeze time?

The Signature Newborn Moments Session captures your baby's first days of life in a natural and unique way in my calm & peaceful studio in Blackrock.



I love to include the parents, siblings, grandparents - even dogs - at each session. This creates the full story of the beginning of baby's life. You can even have a think about adding a mini-maternity session for the true beginning.

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

Capturing the journey from pregnancy > newborn > older baby > growing family is just incredible.

Thank you for considering Moments to photograph your precious little baby.

I'm truly honoured. 

The STYLE
My style of newborn photography is natural, timeless and minimalistic, with an emphasis on your baby, the fleeting details and your connection as a family.

I love the softness of whites, creams, and pastels with an occasional pop of colour. The best newborn portrait is one that is artistically simple without overpowering props or unnatural posing.

The STUDIO
All newborn sessions take place at my natural light studio in Blackrock village, South County Dublin. You and your baby's comfort and safety is the most important aspect of the session.

Newborn sessions can last up to 3 hours as I am completely led by the baby and need for feds and cuddles. You can sit back and have a relaxing and cozy experience enjoying a Bear Market Coffee or take a little nap while I create.

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. 


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.



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.

All products are of the highest quality and become your family heirlooms. Digital files are included as backups to printed art. #Printyourphotos

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

But I do specialise in the detailed editing needed for newborn skin to achieve a clean, natural look.  Newborn baby skin can be tricky, but after years of practice.

I can handle jaundice, baby acne, scratches, bruises, etc.. This professional level of retouching is included in your newborn session.

SCHEDULING
I recommend capturing newborn portraits in the first 6-14 days when your baby is very sleepy and will happily curl up.

Please contact me as soon as possible to check availability for your due date. I usually pencil 10 days after your due date which allows me the flexibility to photograph your little one at the right time.

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 signature Newborn Session starts with a €250 session fee 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 your baby. It’s an honour and privilege that you entrust me to document these incredible first days. I take that responsibility seriously to heart.
