Our beautiful everyday! | Lifestyle photography in Dungarvan

Our lives are made of a series of moments. The little moments, the daily routines that get lost in the blur of repetition. But these are the moment I cherish the most.

Everyday I am taking Leo for a little walk around village. He loves being outside! I want to preserve those moments in a beautiful images. I hope one day my boy will refer to these pictures as "this is what my childhood was like!" Not a perfect studio photos with a carefully selected props and backdrops but these...mischief, giggles, dirty knees and messy hair! I love lifestyle photography! It adds life, emotions and a reality to the images.

This type of photography is especially perfect for families with small children. It's so easy on parents and children. All you need to do is enjoy your day and I will do the rest!

Along with a few beautiful photographs of my boy, I would like to share three little tips to consider when preparing for a family lifestyle photosession:

1. Have a location in mind.

Before the photo session think about your family's favorite place or what your family likes to do? Do you like to walk on the beach, go to the park, walk in the forest, etc? Or maybe your home is your favorite place in the world? Ideally the photographs should tell a story, and it should be a story about YOUR family.

Here is a little tip: if you prefer a photoshoot in your own home, have an activity planned. For example, if you have small kids, try playing a game, or maybe baking cupcakes together. If you need a little bit of inspiration, I can also prepare an inspiration-board on Pinterest with photo examples for you to consider!

2. Have fun!

When a family can relax, have fun, and be themselves, their true emotions come through and so do the best candid photographs.

3. Props!

Usually a lifestyle photo session does not involve a lot of props. You want to create a relaxed atmosphere for you and your family. Small children are not always good at standing still and posing, so they are much happier if you give them something to do. So bring their favorite toys, a ball, or maybe a book depending on your child and on the location. Grab a picnic blanket and a few snacks and you will be amazed how adorable the photographs will look!

Whether you are looking for photographs of your children or just updating your family photos, I would love to capture these special moments in your life. If you are interested in booking a family photography session, please drop me a line at happymemoriesireland@gmail.com or use Contact Form.

I believe a photography package should be affordable with no additional or hidden costs so my full price list is available on my website.
