Phoenix Park Family

Updated: Oct 24

Just a sneak peak. I haven't had much time to share the favorites from the session. This, a newborn session with family in Phoenix Park, Dublin. What's not to love??


I know a place that has such a good backdrop of tall, lush grasses. A short distance away there is an open meadow that is wonderful to stroll along with newborn baby. Stopping here to make the most of a good vista. Tall trees, long grass. This park makes you feel lost in nature. Perfect for a family session that feels like a natural landscape, but closer enough to the city that you don't have to travel far.


This family were so well coordinated. I am a great believer in wearing whatever you feel comfortable in for a family or lifestyle photoshoot. That's way more important than anything else. And with a newborn, let's face it, most couples barely have time to drag a brush through their hair!

So whatever you feel comfortable wearing is the key to a laid back, comfortable session where everyone feels relaxed.


I say in the tips that I give out before a family photo shoot, that it's great to be coordinated rather than matching. Blue, brown, green tones are always good for an outdoor session complimenting nature's natural colors. Aside from that palette. white and other neutrals work so well in any landscape.


I love that this couple wore white. It makes them stand out whilst not stealing the show.


This couple were clearly in love with their new baby.

Baby boy loved looking around him, and was fascinated by the light through the branches of the trees


I loved that there was a bench the family could sit on and enjoy interacting with their newborn for some casual, classic family portraits


They also brought a blanket which was perfect for some sitting family portraits. More to follow...


I can't wait to share more pictures from this session soon & include them in my family section.


I am working on some Christmas special offers, including some special offer Christmas vouchers. Perfect for a Christmas gift for someone special


Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Cara xx
