I am so glad you found me here. I hope to capture the magic of your family because within the chaos & the messiness there is always the magic
I believe the most meaningful pictures lie in the ordinary, every day moments that you connect with most
When they are framed on your wall, or placed beautifully in an album, you get to remember those moments every day. Bringing a spark of joy.
Here are a few favorite things, Aside from photography, that spring to mind.
Cola-Bottle sweets, all the pick n mix sweets
Thai food, especially green curry
Vikings (History channel)
Long walks in nature. Any kind of nature, I'm not fussed, just the pretty kind
Dogs, because they are just the best. I have a Frenchie called Tony!
And some of my favorite photography related things...There are just so many, but, for starters:
Emotive child portraits. Children are so authentic
Passionate couples because love makes the world go around
Sleeping babies, sleeping babies are just perfect
Classic black & white photography.
Timeless & emotive. Everything distilled to its purest parts
Low light & shadows
Older children (I include adults). Because love is forever
Family pictures with your dog, cat (don't get me started on washing Zara) or... hamster. I love pets!!
Photography is less seen then felt
And here's a little fact:
My real name is Caroline. Cara is a nickname from my grandfather. When I started on my photography journey at the beginning, the name stuck.
Pictures are less seen with the eye than felt with the heart
I really got into photography about 11 years ago when I was living in Abu Dhabi
I love my Nikon camera & my Sigma 1.4 Art lens, perfect for portraits
I have taken workshops with photographers I admired from across the world and am a member of CLICKpro. Taking pictures of my own children growing up. Ordinary moments, and then later, with a little staging to create expressive, sometimes quirky, environmental portraits.
I love the in between, unscripted moments. The...
Where timeless child portraits cross into emotionally honest documentary family photography.
Fast forward moving to Dublin in 2018. All around me, there are gorgeous ocean & park locations. Perfect for atmospheric Dublin photo shoots.
I'm inspired by films, books, art, music. Fairytales. Other photographers.
As well as everyday family photography, I love special occasions. Engagement, maternity, Holy Communion, baptism & debs. Your newborn in those first surreal days & weeks of life.
My pictures have been featured in Iconic Artist Magazine & VOGUE Italia portfolios. I have received various prizes at the International Child Photo Competition, best of black & white child photography in the lifestyle & portrait category & in the Documentary Family Awards, "nothing is better than real life" category.
I look forward to capture heartfelt, truthful memories of your family for you to cherish. I am also introducing mentoring if you want to learn along photography with me!
And that's my girl in a straw hat. I love taking pictures of teenagers because they are always our precious babies
