Communion Portraits, Dublin

Updated: Mar 5

I am so excited to be able to share with you these beautiful Holy Communion Portraits, Dublin. These pictures were also taken with the whole family, shortly after the communion event. In the comfort of their home & garden in Dublin


This little girl looked absolutely gorgeous in her pure white communion gown. I love all the details, including the beautiful beaded hair accessory.


Here are a few family highlights of the family together, as well as some classic portraits of this little girl in her dress. In colour & black & white for a classic feel.


The beauty of doing Communion portraits after, or a little bit before the occasion is that there is plenty of time to focus on the photoshoot & not need to be concerned with the other details & logistics of the day. You can also choose a location you love, either at home or in a park, garden, beach, or any other picturesque location!


These pictures were taken near midday but near sundown there is also the pretty end of day light to have fun with. Cloudy days can produce beautiful colours too though.


I also love to do communion family portraits on the special day itself as well. Much like baptism photography there is time for family pictures at home, getting ready, outside & inside the church. Before and after the special event. I love celebration photography! I also love a mix of classic portraits. In this case doing portraits on a simple chair in the garden was all that was needed.


I also love making the most of more natural & spontaneous moments. My fly on the wall documentary approach is more about letting moments unfold naturally...


All the best pictures from the photoshoot are showcased in a professional online gallery with personalized cover. There is the option to own a full or half gallery of pictures. You can then print as and when you like using my recommended gallery printers. Popular mat printing, also fine art books & matted albums are available


Popular for newborn photography is the mounted print box. The engraved print box contains a bundle of mounted pictures. The wonderful thing about the print box is that you can add to it over time. Include pictures of other celebrations throughout your child's life. You can also get your child's newborn & baby photos printed & added to the box at any time.


Communion is a once a year event in Dublin, Ireland, and one that is very much fixed in the school calender, happening in 3rd class year.


This year many are happening from May 2022. Contact me to find out more about Communion family photoshoots. Have a wonderful week,
