Child & Family Portraits. Woodlands
Updated: Jan 16
It's been a busy week!
It was delightful to do a family photography session with these children in a woodland with a very enchanted feel.
Child portraits under the trees in a sombre light under the canopy of trees
I love to shoot in half-dark. When the light isn't too bright it can be very flattering for family portraits. That's also why if there is a family session Dublin in the middle of the day, I will often seek the shade of a tree or a building
This Stourhead woodland outing with this family brings back wonderful memories of childhood unplugged. At its very best.
I love the intimate portraits from this session. I look out for expression & gesture. My child & baby portraits are very natural & candid
Children exploring the beautiful woodlands together, connecting with old and new trees. Climbing trees. Playing in their boughs.
Children dressed up in fancy dress costumes, just for gigs.
The girls had Ariel Mermaid dresses complete with orange wigs that were discarded at some point as they got so tangled!
Just children being children.
Using props from the woodland outing as a storytelling aspect of a family portrait to treasure.
Leaves, grapes, apples from the picnic. Using the backdrop of bark and flowers for attractive child portraits
Trees create different & versatile opportunities for light and framing. There were plenty of ways to frame a picture between the branches of trees.
Or to use the backdrop of bark & trunk for portraits
At the moment, too, Dublin parks & wooded areas are particularly beautiful. Flush with autumn colors.
Killiney hill Dublin is great for wooded family photo shoots Dublin
The trees come in a variety of colors too when they shed their leaves, adding a different mood. From fiery red, deep burgundy, and silvery leaved canopies.
Gorgeous filtered natural light through the branches. Seasonal color for expressive child & family portraits!

I have won international awards for my family & lifestyle photography Dublin, and have over 10 years photographing families. Including natural newborn at home
There is a special place in my heart for timeless, soulful black & white family photography. Otherwise I do love rich, natural color.
My photo shoots include travel to the location & the duration of the shoot. It also includes downloading the pictures and going through & selecting all the best moments from the session. The pictures are all soft edited which means I check them for color, temperature, brightness, contrast
About a week to 10 days after your session, I will present all the best candid moments from your family's session in a professional, online viewing gallery with a personalized cover
You can take your time marking your faves with a Heart
