I’m the


Family photos are everyday treasures, capturing your love and connection with each other to look back on for generations to come. As a Northern Ireland family photographer, I specialise in relaxed, natural family photoshoots that don’t skimp on fun!

Awkward poses, frozen smiles and matching cheesy outfits begone! I’m here to put you at ease, and freeze frame you being yourselves, complete with noise and laughter and chaos!   My style is focused on telling your family story in a creative, relaxed way, and I can’t wait to get started.


I’m Emma and I have the best job in the world. Getting to meet families and capture your family story is a joy, and having the chance to present you with beautiful, creatively natural photographs that can become your very own heirlooms is about the biggest honour I can think of!

It’s so often the case that our family photos are slightly blurry phone selfies, or that someone (mums, I’m looking at you here) is always the one behind the camera and avoiding being in shot at all costs.

 Choosing me as your family photographer means making an investment in your memories. I promise a fun and laid-back experience, where you can all feel at ease to be yourselves, whether toddler, teen or terrific parent!

 And mums, while I’ve got your attention, allow me a moment on my soapbox:

 You are a vital part of the family and you need to be in the photos! I promise you won’t feel awkward during our photoshoot experience together, and what’s more your kids will thank you for it someday. In twenty years they will want to look back and see how vou looked at them and how fiercely you loved them when they were little.

I offer two options when it comes to your relaxed family photoshoot. We can either stay in the comfort of your own home, and showcase the everyday magic that goes on there, snapping dozens of perfectly imperfect little moments. Or we can head to the coast and take advantage of some golden hour light, and the chance to be fully present in the great outdoors, on some of Northern Ireland’s gorgeous beaches…


Which will you choose?


at home

Home is where we are most ourselves. Your life is in that space. Show me the toast crumbs, the toys, the artwork on the fridge!

 The point of these at home sessions is the comfortable and the real. Don’t go mad tidying up before I arrive, it’s all about showing the beauty of your everyday life as a family. Fun, laughter and letting the kids be kids, without the pressure of everybody sitting perfectly.

We are lucky to have some truly stunning golden beaches along the North Coast of Northern Ireland. Let’s escape to the seaside for a photoshoot in the great outdoors, where you can be perfectly present with your family, without the pressures of everyday life hanging around you.  



So tiny, sleepy and perfect in every way. In a few months you’ll be amazed that they were ever so small. Let me capture your first days as a family with images you’ll treasure.

“Emma was fabulous from start to finish!

I hate getting my photo taken and was worried that it would be hard to get photos of both kids.

Emma made us feel so relaxed and we really enjoyed the session. The photos are amazing and I’m so happy to have these to look back on!”
