“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
I am the mother to 3 beautiful children and they are my reason for everything. They made me realise how important photography is in its ability to capture those moments that just fly by too quickly. I think I truly found my passion for photography when I became a mother, because I just don't want to forget a thing!
We have a crazy busy household , but I love it. I'm hoping someday the kids will get to rummage through an old photo album or shoebox somewhere and be reminded of their beautiful childhood and how loved they are.
I am a qualified photographer with a BA Degree in Photography, I am also a member of the Irish Professional Photographers Association (IPPVA). I specialise in child and family portraiture; it's my passion as I feel these photographs hold a special place for any family.
I strive to take photographs that show real human connections and capture personalities honestly, to give a genuine sense of a family or person, as beautiful as they are.
With me, all formalities are left at the door! Each session is unique; tailored to the client it is fun, relaxed and easy going. I want to see you and your children's personalities, emotion and most importantly, for you to be yourselves.

We had a shoot with Deirdre this week. I am so delighted with the photos. I knew they would be great but I wasn't prepared for really how much I would love them. She has captured my children's personality and the craziness that is my family 100%. I'm so delighted to have these memories to look back on for years to come. Such a worthwhile investment, I'm so delighted I didn't put it off any longer. I can't stop admiring them!
WHAT IS YOUR SHOOTING STYLE FOR FAMILY PHOTOS?
I am a lifestyle photographer, and my style is geared towards capturing real moments! This means getting you interacting rather than posing, and having a fun time together - because that’s where the magic happens!
WHAT IF MY KIDS WON’T ENGAGE?
That’s okay! Many children are shy or have a hard time with posing for photos - Which is why we forget the posing and just get you all hanging out and loving on each other! You just enjoy the moment and I’ll worry about the photos.
