Keeping things fuss free & authentic: Capture your precious baby in the comfort of your home.

I specialize in capturing authentic and fuss-free moments of newborns and families right in the comfort of your own home in Dublin.

Whether you're lying on the couch in your PJs or snuggled up with your little one in a favorite spot outside, I'll be there to freeze those precious moments in time.

Newborn sessions are typically scheduled about two weeks after birth, capturing those precious moments when your baby is still all curled up. However, any time you feel comfortable is perfect – I'm flexible to accommodate your needs.

Celebrate your baby's first milestones with my photography sessions, from the last weeks of pregnancy with natural maternity sessions to the joyous, sometimes bewildering, first days with your newborn. From capturing those tiny fingers and toes to the heartwarming family moments with your little one at the heart, I'll ensure your memories are beautifully preserved.

I also offer coverage for your baby's baptism or christening, capturing the solemn yet joyful moments of this significant event. Additionally, check out my new special: the Bumps & Babe Maternity & Newborn Package for a comprehensive and memorable experience.

Brand New

If your newborn baby is a few days or weeks old, please don't worry about things being "perfect" (I know they won't be, and that's more than fine). Just drag a comb through your hair and wear something comfortable. I have a few tips for getting ready but nothing huge What matters is the bond between you & your newborn or baby. Outside or at home

At home newborn photographer Dublin? I suggest just clearing the space either side of the master bed. The bedroom can be a perfect place for pictures on the bed (and comfortable). Throw open the curtains and let in the light! We can also go into the garden. Outdoor on location shoots are also an option usually when baby is older. I include all the family & pets.

I will record the details of your baby or maternity session with a mix of classic portraits & candid moments, taken with a documentary approach. I love to capture baby hands & feet. Albums & handmade art books are a special way to show off your baby or maternity pictures. And share with your baby one day soon.

Thanks for submitting!

 an amazing experience from start to finish. We chose an in home newborn photography shoot & Cara was so patient, taking the most beautiful pictures of us in window light on the bed, in between me feeding our baby boy.


I wasn't sure I was ready, I felt things were totally chaotic and our baby girl, only just two weeks old! Somehow, it was the perfect time though. Cara captured the love we felt. We will treasure our baby pictures.
