Family Photoshoot in the National Botanic Gardens, Dublin

Family Photography Dublin, Ireland

One of the greatest privileges of my job is being asked back to capture a family again, as they grow.

I photographed the Moore family almost two years ago now when they were just three as part of an extended family session in County Mayo, so it was really special to work with them once again, now as a family of four. We chose the National Botanical Gardens in Glasnevin, Dublin as our location for their family portraits. The conditions were almost ideal; we had a beautiful dry, calm spell for the first half of our session with some light rain afterwards so we moved inside to the beautiful green houses for some photos of the kids.

Our photos took place in early April, so some flowers and plants were beginning to bloom and the green tones were becoming more vibrant allowing for some really beautiful colour in our background. 

As with all of my family sessions, I offer some gentle guidance but with a young family like this – the kids really lead the way which always opens the door for some really beautiful candid moments which the boys most definitely delivered on. It’s so important to be how you always are with your children during these sessions; to be at ease with them, engage with them and have fun and this family did this so beautifully allowing us to capture some very sweet moments!

These are just a selection of some of my favourite images from our morning together!
