Hello! I am Sinéad, a full-time professional family and newborn photographer in Dublin. I have specialised in family photography for over ten years now and I know how to get the most beautiful, natural shots of babies, children and family groups. I come to you in your home and this works wonderfully. Everyone is relaxed and at ease and I get a fabulous mix of "studio style" images and the fun, natural, loving, candid shots that all families treasure forever. My expertise is not just in photography but in connecting with and understanding children of all ages and temperaments.
I mainly use natural light and I know instantly where to get the most flattering light in your home and I will direct you just enough that you will look your best and get relaxed, beautiful, heartfelt pictures of you and your family. Your children will have natural expressions and you will look fab! I also have a special interest in photographing grandparents and working with extended family groups too.
I adore working with children and I'm well known for my ability to connect with children very fast and earn their trust quickly. I love working with them all - the giddy ones, the cheeky ones, the quiet, shy or stubborn ones, I'm well used to all of their different temperaments. I have them laughing, cuddling with each other, smiling and having fun with their siblings and parents before they even have a chance to feel shy (I might even capture a few squabbles between brothers and sisters or a little meltdown moment too.. they all make fabulous pictures!!) It's a really lovely experience for the family. I would love to photograph your family too and document precious moments that you will have forever

Photography has been in my family for generations. My grandfather was a photographer and I picked up a love for it at a very early age. It has been my passion for all my life. I set up my baby and child photography business in Dublin shortly after the birth of my second child. I discovered the beauty of newborn and baby photography and the joy of capturing family life and childhood moments for other people..
My family and newborn photography takes place in your home and this works really well regardless of what type of house or apartment you have. Over the years I have become very skilled in finding places to use in your house that you would not even think of. All the pictures on my website are taken in houses and apartments of all sizes and layouts. You will notice that the inside of your house doesn't need to feature at all if you don't want it to. My photography is focused on family interactions, natural expression and lots of laughter. When you book a session with me, you will get a complete collection of images with lots of variety and full of family moments and memories. (You can expect around 70-100 finished, edited pictures from a busy one hour session. Most families choose the best ones to go up on the walls and put all the rest in an album or photobook that the children and parents enjoy forever. A beautiful record of a point in time of family life)
I mainly use beautiful, natural, flattering light but sometimes flash on really dull days. I can work in any home, big or small, cluttered or tidy. It makes no difference to me. It's what I do best. Please read the many Google reviews that my customers have written about the experience. I would love to meet your family too so please feel free to email me for more information or to look at availability.
My family sessions usually take around an hour. It's a busy hour and I get a huge selection of pictures for you in that time. Babies, children and indeed parents can become tired after that. (Please see the Preparing for your Session page for more information on photography and the developmental stages). My newborn sessions usually take around an hour and a half.
Family Photography should be fun and relaxed and a positive experience for everyone - especially the children. This is what I do best!
Professional, personal service with great customer experience are really very important to me. I truly love working with newborns, older babies and children and it is such an honour to meet so many lovely families. Please feel free to call or email me to chat about your family photography session further. I look forward to hearing from you!
