Hi there!


So true. It really does just take one second. One small click, to preserve your most precious memories. For celebrations, big & small, and really very tiny too, I'm here. Welcome to CaraHodgePhotography. Lifestyle & Family photographer living in Blackrock, Dublin.


After living in Abu Dhabi for 11 years, I recently moved to the Emerald Isle, beautiful Ireland. And I can't wait to share my Dublin photoshoot stories as they come up.


My Dublin photoshoots are in the great outdoors. Or, in the comfort of your own home. All natural light and all natural settings. Park or sea. Rain or shine. In a cozy armchair by the window. I'm here for all aspects of lifestyle & family photography. Portrait, engagement, maternity, newborn, & baby, family & child. Special occasions, too. Celebrate in style Holy Communion, graduation, birthday parties, and debs  (I  love the sparkle of prom & debs). 


Also, I love to treasure the precious everyday, in-between, moments. The ones you can't do without, right? Where remembering your child's hand in yours, a tight hug, and a radiant smile, is all that you need.

I love to capture the details, too. Messy hair, the curl of an eyelash. A favorite dress, a glossy red lip.


You can see examples of my client photography here & award winning child photography in my portfolio here. I have a particular passion for child portraits, and am a sucker for timeless, emotive, black & white pictures. Many of my personal favorites have been featured in Iconic Artist Magazine & have won prizes at International Child Photo Competition.

For more about me, the fact that I like marmalade on toast & tea, "The Queen's Gambit" on Netflix, and Cola-Bottle sweets. Well, that's here in About Me.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Head over to Contact Me to ask me anything. Or simply to find out more about what to expect here.

A light chaser at heart, I love capturing moments that make the heart beat a little faster.
