Im always talking about how lovely our little corner of the world is. Carrickfergus is such a lovely little town and the people are so friendly. I know I can’t move down High Street with my Mum without being stopped at least 5 times. Its that sense of belonging that give us roots. Nothing brings…
As a Family Photographer I have the best fun. Together we can create a relaxed atmosphere, where no one is expected to perform. Traditionally children have bundles of energy at the beginning of the shoot. Nerves kick in too being around someone new in a strange environment. That’s the main reason I come to you, I want to keep the day relaxed and fun.
The images in the gallery are of some family photography shoots I’ve done.
For family photography shoots we have used locations in Belfast, Carrickfergus, Ballymena and I have even ventured up to our glorious North Coast.
You will see we have managed to create joy and personality in each image. Thats purely down to everyone being relaxed and having fun.
Studio photography does not lend itself to feeling relaxed and natural. Flashes, equipment, noise bouncing off the walls and meltdowns because they wont smile at the camera. This is never an issue on my family shoots, its me talking and laughing with the kids as they climb a tree. I have spent over 25 minutes looking for the best acorn and I’ve rolled down hills. We have searched for primroses and watched squirrels jumping from branch to branch. Children love to explore and I’m there to capture that excitement and joy, its magical!
Wedding Photography is a big business in Northern Ireland, in fact anywhere. A majority of Wedding Photographers offer family shoots as a bolt on. My Family Photography business is not a bolt on, it is my speciality and it is my passion.
I dont want to just take a nice picture of your child. On our family shoot, we will be creating wonderful memories of you being with your children. As you are everyday, there will be nothing artificial, especially the joy.
Filling your home with reminders of those happy memories is what makes your house, your home xx
