Kids will be kids!

As a lifestyle photographer, I specialize in natural, stress-free family photography. During our time together, your children will be given fun prompts and games so they can be 100% themselves. With simple directions, I ensure to capture the best images that truly reflect the essence of your family's story. 

Of course, we'll capture a few traditional photos where everyone is looking into the camera and smiling. Additionally, individual portraits will be taken to ensure each person shines in their own spotlight.

Location

My family sessions take place in the beautiful surrounding areas of Dungarvan, Co. Waterford. Before our session, we'll discuss your preferred location. Do you have a favorite spot as a family? Perhaps a park, a sandy beach, or your own garden where your children love to play? Or would you like to capture the warmth of your own home, preserving beautiful memories of childhood within its familiar walls?

Light plays a crucial role in photography. I'll provide guidance on the optimal time for your session, taking into consideration the season.

*Travel fee outside of co. Waterford may apply

What to Wear for Family Photos

Your clothing can make or break your pictures

The success of your family session and the overall look of your photographs depend significantly on what you are wearing. You can have the most stunning location, but if the clothes don’t coordinate well, the final result might not be what you envision. 

Coordinate, don’t match. Gone are the days of matching outfits white t-shirts and jeans. Choose similar solid colors and avoid bright shades like neons, as these do not photograph well and can reflect onto your faces. Lay the outfits beside each other on the bed or floor to see how they work together. I don’t recommend everyone be in the same pattern, like stripes or florals as it’s usually too overwhelming. 

I love seeing moms wearing dresses. They add a romantic and feminine element and look beautiful in photos. Maxi dresses are a go-to for photo shoots! They create a flattering look when you're standing, and when you're seated, the fabric nicely drapes around you, eliminating any leg-covering worries. Just trust me you will look amazing! 

Avoid clothing with large logos or graphic – T-shirts with large logos, graphics or characters. These can detract from the emotional connection your photographer aims to capture in your family photos.

Please take a look at these two family sessions as fantastic examples of coordinated outfits.
