Hi there!
 What if it takes one small click to preserve your most precious memories?

For celebrations big, small & tiny, welcome to Cara Hodge Photography! Lifestyle & Family photographer, Blackrock, Dublin.

Dublin photoshoots are indoor or outdoor. In the comfort of your own home. Park or beach. Family portraits, engagement, maternity, newborn & baby. Special occasions like Holy Communion, graduation, birthday parties, and debs.
Capture precious everyday moments. Your child's hand gripping yours. First smiles. Baby bumps. Passionate couples.
Details like unruly hair, the curl of an eyelash. A favorite dress...
I love vibrant natural colour & timeless, emotive black & white pictures. Favorites are 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 and Cola-Bottle sweets, that's here in About Me.

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