Baby's First Birthday Portraits, Dublin

This was a lovely Family photoshoot I did for a couple and their two little boys. Baby's first birthday was celebrated near Bushy park, Dublin


The pictures were taken around a playground which meant the babies could have fun, and forget about being photographed!


I loved the two baby boys striped jumpers. They really added to the feel of fun & joy.


Mum & dad even got into the swing in the playground!


The trees were still full of bright yellow leaves which gave a golden glow, even though the family portraits were taken around midday when the sun is usually very bright. The midday sun often means I have to look for sheltered spots in the shade. However this morning had soft mellow light, perfect for family portraits.


I love a mixture of classic child portraits as well as more spontaneous, authentic "in between" moments. Moments of natural connection. Baby boy playing with the leaves on the ground of the park. Or with a red balloon tied to his pram. Or, simply giving mum or dad a big hug. Plenty of time to explore the swings & the slide and go through the playground tunnels.


Birthday parties can be very laid back family moments that center around your family just being in the moment & having fun. Parks around Dublin make the perfect place to celebrate a more unstructured birthday party.


Now for my Dublin family portraits there are digital packages as well as gorgeous mat printing, and a new range of lovely print products. Handmade fine art books, matted albums & mounted print boxes


Have a lovely week, Cara
