the start of it all. life through my lens

My journey in family & lifestyle Photography started with my own family. My children, nieces & nephews. Capturing the chaotic, unscripted, moments of family life. Day to day. Cuddling up to the street cat that became our cat. Dress up in a princess gown. Climbing trees. Sleeping babies  (...ahh, the peace...). Blink, the children grow.  Always, bitter-sweet.  I love to look back and remember it all. Life, through my eyes. Through my lens. My rainbow moments. From Abu Dhabi to beautiful Ireland. I specialize in natural family photography Dublin sessions & at home newborn photography.
