First, get in contact  and we'll set a date to head out, please be aware that weekends can book out weeks in advance so don't wait!

How do we book our session?

Your photos will be ready in less than 2 weeks after your shoot and you can book a viewing appointment at my studio. You can sit and relax with a coffee and some biscuits while you choose your favourite photos.
I have samples of all my wall-art and albums for you to view before choosing and I will guide you through the process to ensure everything is perfect for you. You're free to only order what you love, and I'm confident you'll love them all!

When will we be able to view our photos?

Absolutely! I know it is difficult to envisage how your photos will look in your home so you will be delighted to know that I can create a computer-generated preview of your new wall-art on your wall at home, showing exactly how it will look once it is proudly displayed.

I'd like to buy a canvas or a frame for my home but I don’t know which size or style I should choose, can you help?

Yes please! I know they say ‘never work with animals and children’ but I think that sounds like a great day's work! I know how important our four-legged friends are as part of your family and they should definitely be included!
Please let me know in advance if you wish to bring your dog along to the shoot so I can ensure we choose a suitable location (and I can make sure I have some treats in my pocket!).

Can we bring our dog?

Yes! You can head to the portrait section of my website and purchase a gift certificate from my online shop. Gift certificates can be for the session only or include money towards prints as well and are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.

Do you offer photography gift certificates?

I pride myself on offering an excellent level of service, bringing out the personality of your family so that your photos are perfect for you. I have a range of bespoke wall-art to ensure your images are presented perfectly and cherished on the walls of your home for decades ahead. You can read some of my previous clients’ thoughts on my testimonials page.

What sort of service can we expect from you?

Of course! Every family is unique and I encourage parents and children alike to bring their favourite toys and items from home. Not only do these props add a personal touch to your photos but holding their favourite toy can quickly relax a nervous little one in an unfamiliar environment. And if you have a really crazy idea, let me know!

We have some ideas of our own, can we try them?

It's well known in Ireland how unreliable our weather can be so I always check the forecast a few days before your shoot and discuss the arrangements with yourself. We can go ahead and have some fun in the rain, change to the studio or re-arrange for a different date for no extra cost.

What happens if it rains on our lifestyle session?

Yes, I understand how hectic a family’s life can be and how hard it is to fit everything in and I am happy to host your shoot in the weekday evenings and at the weekends. Dates fill up weeks in advance so you’re best to plan your session far ahead.

Are you available in the evenings and the weekends?

I have a very casual and natural style and aim to capture the essence of your family. I want to show everyone's unique personalities as well as how you all bond as a family. 
Family shoots are a lot of fun and not much posing, I feel this brings out the true characters of everyone in your family.

What makes your work different from other photographers’ work?

I will send you a leaflet filled with info and tips on how to make the most of your session, including suggestions on clothing, locations and more. We’ll also chat on the phone before your shoot to confirm the details.

What do we need to prepare for our session?
