PHOTO SESSION!

Services

Hey there, I am so excited that we are going to get to work together. 

I can't tell you how important it is to me (and how AMAZING it will feel!) to provide you with photographs that you will love for a lifetime.

This honestly means the world to me.

Let's point one thing out right off the bat. With me, all formalities are left at the door. My sessions are super relaxed and easy going.

 

Each session is as unique as the people in the photographs. I want you to be yourself!

 

If you have kids, let them be themselves. Think of it as meeting up with a photography obsessed friend for an hour or so! We chat, take photos and have fun. There is no pressure to dress it up, stress about it or try to make it perfect. 

You my friend, are perfect just as you are.

Have a scroll through my welcome site to familiarise yourself with how I work so that we can create amazing photographs together!

 

Don't have much time?

SO HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?

Let me tell you about the easiest photo session you will ever have!

The favourite part of my job is that I get to work with families and couples to capture their honest, authentic, messy, beautiful love for one another! Yes, we'll set up shots and tweak things to make you look amazing, but my number one goal is that you walk away with real and genuine photos that truly capture this season of your life. 

During the session we'll do a bit of everything - Unlike studio portraits where you're pulling your hair out trying to get your kids to sit still or smile on cue, my portraits are organic and natural. I work on getting everyone interacting and having fun! In my opinion, that's the best way to have a photoshoot!

Before the Session: 
We will get to know each other and have a chat over the phone.
I will answer any questions you may have and you can tell me all about your family.
We can discuss a time and location that suits your family best and discuss any ideas you may have. 


 
During the Session: 
My photo sessions are very relaxed and easy going.
I will give you simple prompts and direction to get you all interacting, but I will also photograph all the in-between.
My goal is to capture genuine moments and real emotion. We will can do something you love to do as a family, go for a walk in your favourite park, chill out at your house, what ever suits you best. 
After the Session: 
I will carefully select and edit the very best photographs from your session.
Within two weeks of your session date you will receive your online viewing gallery to choose your images from.

Choosing your
LOCATION

Think of a place that means something to you!

Your home or garden can make the perfect location! Ireland offers some of the best scenery around.

If you're looking for amazing spots nearby, let me know and I'll be happy to give you some ideas!

Think of places that speak to your personality best, and are accessible for everyone involved.

Check out some of my blog posts about choosing the perfect location for our photoshoot:

Five Wardrobe
TIPS

Most importantly be yourself and be comfortable!

1. Don't match, coordinate.

Pick a colour combination for your family to work within.

2. Don't be too seasonal.

While the idea of clothes for the season may be appealing, our aim is to produce photographs that you can display in your home all year round! Unless you live in the North Pole, Christmas only really works once a year.

3. Go for earth tones, textures and solid colours.

These are the most classic and timeless. Layers in your clothing provide visual interest and movement (especially for the girls! Dresses or a flowy shawl etc). Avoid bright colours, stripes and crazy patterns.

4. Fitted - Best. Avoid baggy jeans or loose fitting shirts etc.

5. We want your session to be enjoyable and fun for everyone involved.

If your kid's clothing is uncomfortable for them to wear, it won't be nearly as fun. 

Bonus tip: Feel free to throw all these tips out the window. You can actually wear whatever the hell you want!

FAQ

 

What is your shooting style?

 

I am a lifestyle family photographer, which means I give direction and prompts to get your family interacting, rather than posing, because this is where the magic happens!  My goal is to capture real and genuine moments, and although I give direction, some of my most favourite photographs are the ones that happen in between! My photos sessions are very relaxed, its more like hanging out with a friend with a camera... no stiff posing here! 

 

What if my kids won't engage?

 

As a mother of three, believe me, I would be very surprised if they did engage all the time! A lot of children are shy or have a hard time with posing for photos, which is why we can forget about the posing and let them do what's fun for them! Let them explore, let them bring a football or a toy they love, if at home they can jump on their bed or show me their favourite toys. There is no pressure! We can take our time & let the kids enjoy themselves.

 

 Are sessions indoors or outdoors?

 

All session locations are chosen in collaboration with you, every family photo session is as unique as the family! 

 

Can I cancel/reschedule my session?

 

Booking fees are non refundable, as I am holding the date for you and turning away other clients. If you need to reschedule your session contact me as soon as possible.

 

When is payment due?

 

A non refundable booking fee is due before the date can be reserved, with the remaining balance of the session fee due on/before the session date. 

 

What happens if it rains?

 

In Ireland, this is a very valid question! No worries! If your session date gets rained out, we can either select an alternative location or time,  or reschedule to another date. Or we can always splash about in the rain! 

 

How long until I receive my images?

 

After I have selected the very best images of your session, I will edit them and upload them to your online gallery. You will have this gallery to view within two weeks of your session date. Any printed products will be delivered within a month after purchase.
