Newborn Photography Northern Ireland

Ive always had a camera with me for many many years. I have worked within a studio situation and I have been so lucky to photograph families all over the world.

But by far the photography I get the most joy from is Newborn baby & Family Location Photography

There is just something incredibly special about being asked to join a family being honest, messy, vulnerable and fun with each other. Being able to witness that through my viewfinder brings a lot of joy to my soul.

Your environment will always dictate how comfortable you are

Which is why I will always come to where you are most comfortable. Being a Family Photographer within Northern Ireland allows me to travel. Let’s face it we can realistically get anywhere in Northern Ireland within an hour.

Fresh 48 Photography sessions happen within 48 hours of birth

They can take place within the hospital * this is dependant upon hospital policy. If you have chosen to have a home birth, then I will come to your home within the first 2 days of birth.

My Newborn Baby Photography sessions are relaxed & super calm

The Newborn photography sessions take place between birth & 3 months. They can be at home or outdoors at a location that means something to your family.

Lifestyle Photography is beautiful!

Whether it’s in your home, surrounded by your treasures. Or if it’s at a park/garden that you visited as a child. I genuinely adore meeting a brand new little human
