Family summer photo shoot. Bond between brother & sister

Updated: Dec 27, 2022

Here are a few more pictures from summer in France on the blog this week


In the meadow to photograph brother & sister. My own children

These two have such a precious, loving bond.

During the pandemic my son was so happy his sister could be home with him as she was doing school online.


Through at times a difficult, tumultuous year, they were there for each other!


They have always been close, and because of the 10 year age gap, my daughter has always taken good care of him.


I really wanted to capture their close connection in this spontaneous mini family photo shoot. As ever, my son will concentrate on pictures for a limited time only, so I have to be quick!


I took pictures of them individually as well as together. I love the child portraits of my son in the old fig tree!


Here my son was recovering from flu and was a bit weary and low energy. So I knew he would look tired and somehow more vulnerable in these pictures. In some ways this emphasizes the care his sister has for him...


This is a series I would definitely love to keep working on.


I love hands and how expressive they can be conveying emotion, particularly here where they are wrapped around each other.


As ever, I love a soulful classic black & white child & family portrait. The light in the meadow is quite hazy and soft, although it was very near sundown...


As a family photographer Dublin, I love to make the most of the loving connection. between family members.


As well as the obvious moments of connection when you are laughing, playing and smiling in the frame, I love to make the most of the in between moments as well. These are the moments that naturally arise in a family photo shoot. When the hugs are all natural with no prompting from me


As well as joy, there are so many other expressions that makes a parent instantly recognize their own child.

Tired or cranky toddler, anyone?

I love expressive child portraits that tell the story of your child. That capture their personality in a unique way. These are the authentic, natural family pictures that tug on the heart strings, that you look back on over the years


As well as beautifully edited digital images, I highly recommend you printing the best family pictures.

That you can treasure, forever
