As a family photographer, I really believe the best family photos are those that capture genuine moments of happiness. Traditional posed family portraits don’t tell this story.
Whilst posed family photos can create beautiful imagery, they focus on compositions over real interactions between your family and lack the emotion and warmth that brings you back to a specific moment or feeling.
Natural family photography allows your family to truly be themselves.
I offer my family photoshoots in an outdoor environment as I find it keeps everyone relaxed and at ease.
I encourage your kids to run and play. I ask parents to pick them up. Cuddle them. Kiss them. All while I snap away in the background. Creating beautiful, natural, and authentic images of your family just as they are. Giving you a record of how your children played with one another, how your baby fell asleep on your chest, and how you held them in your arms.
My photography studio is based in Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim where I offer studio-based newborn photography, baby photography and first birthday photography. I am approximately 30 minutes from Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Sligo Town and South Donegal towns Ballyshannon and Bundoran.
Some beautiful locations for family photos nearby include Hazelwood Forest, Strandhill Beach and Mullaghmore in Sligo. Donegal has endless scenic beaches and locations which would make for a beautiful backdrop for family photography including Rossnowlagh beach and, of course, Roguey Cliff Walk in Bundoran.
As I prefer to shoot natural family photos outdoors, I am available for family photography throughout Ireland.
