My Own Story: A Journey in Capturing Family Moments

My passion for family and lifestyle photography began with the chaotic, unscripted moments of my own family: my children, nieces, and nephews. From cuddling up to the patchy street kitten that became our own, to dressing up in princess gowns and climbing trees, I've captured the essence of family life in all its beautiful chaos & wonder.

As the years pass by, I've cherished each moment—whether it's the peaceful sight of sleeping babies or the bittersweet realization that children grow up too fast. Through my lens, I've preserved these rainbow moments, from my time in Abu Dhabi to the serene landscapes of beautiful Ireland.

Specializing in natural family photography sessions in Dublin and at-home newborn photography, I aim to capture the genuine emotions and connections that make each family unique.
