Photo Sessions

You will see from the photographs in the Gallery that my style of photography is quite casual with the emphasis on capturing children and babies while they are having fun. This usually involves photographing candid shots while they are engrossed in something else and unaware of the camera.

Sessions take place either in your home or a chosen location using natural light as much as possible. If your chosen location is your own home, photos will often be taken near windows and doors. If the weather permits the garden can also be used for older babies and children.

For babies, the ideal age to photograph them is when they can sit without assistance or be placed on their tummies with enough strength to hold their heads up. This can be at any age between 4 and 12 months. However if your baby is already crawling or toddling that’s also perfectly fine.

It’s advisable to have 2-3 outfits prepared to allow for variation in the photos. If you’re unsure about what to use you can have some ready and we can decide together (try to avoid white where possible). Any other props such as blankets, favourite toys and books, hats etc can be incorporated into the shots. If we are shooting the session outdoors, rain gear and boots should be on standby.

I am also available to attend your family functions such as communions, christenings etc to take photos on the day. Some samples of previous work can be found in the gallery.

If required a follow-up meeting can be arranged so that we can view the photos together and I can advise you on the format, sizing and many other options available to you. I am based in Clonakilty but am willing to travel up to one hour to your home or other chosen location.  If you are lucky enough to live in Inishowen (Co Donegal) I am there 3-4 times per year (usually during school holidays) so contact me if you would like to arrange a photo session.

I have a few suggested packages that you can choose from or contact me for a tailored quote .
