Family Photography Northern Ireland

If you are looking for family photos that show your love and connection, you’re in the right place!  When we think of family photographs, the image of frozen smiles and awkward poses in matching outfits springs to mind.

 

That is why my style is focused on telling your family story in a creative, relaxed way.

 

  • Is the only nice family photo you have together a selfie?

 

  • Are you always behind the camera, but very rarely in the photo?

 

  • Do you take nice photos of your husband and the kids, but the ones he takes of you are a bit rubbish?

 

Mums, you deserve to be in the photo! You are an important part of the family and you need to be in the photos. Your kids will thank you for it someday. In twenty years they will want to look back and see how you looked at them and how you loved them.

Family photography Northern Ireland

I have been photographing gorgeous families throughout Northern Ireland for over 10 years

I guide you through the whole process to make it as hassle-free and enjoyable as possible.

Before your session, I send you through a detailed questionnaire to establish which photos are most important, to get an introduction to your family and to make sure that your experience is unique.

“I don’t know what to wear!”

This is a phrase I often hear, so I have put together a style guide to help with outfit planning to ensure you look and feel your best on the day.

“What if my kids don’t co-operate?”

You don’t need to stress about your little darlings behaving themselves.  There’s no pressure for the kids to perform or sit nicely. For most of the session you will be laughing, running and giving each other cuddles!

“I feel so awkward in front of the camera!”

My clients love that I help them to relax in front of the camera. With plenty of chat, preparing ahead and keeping it fun, you’ll soon forget about the camera pointed at you and enjoy time with your best people.

I guide you to the best light and most flattering poses, then let your family magic unfold as you chat, laugh and even have a tickle. This is where the connection is, and these are the special moments that I love to capture for you.

Northern Ireland Family Photography

AT HOME FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

Home is where we are most ourselves. Your life is in that space. The toys in the basket, the pictures on the fridge door.

These sessions are filled with fun and laughter and are all about being together as a family. Letting the kids be kids, without the pressure of everybody sitting perfectly.

 

Newborn photography

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.

Beach Photography

Life is busy. Take a moment to be fully present, without the distraction of screens or the long to-do list.

 We are lucky to have the golden beaches along the North Coast of Northern Ireland to serve as a beautiful backdrop to your family photos.

We just love the pictures!

You captured life as a McShane perfectly and we just love the pictures.  I don’t know how but I feel like you really captured the children’s personalities.  I will treasure these photographs forever, thank you so much. I became really emotional when I watched the slideshow. You have exceeded our expectations.

YOUR INVESTMENT

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”

What if my kids don't behave?!

There’s no pressure for the kids to perform or sit nicely. For most of the session you will be laughing, running and giving each other cuddles!

Help! I don't know what to wear!

I have put together a style guide to help with outfit planning to ensure you look and feel your best on the day.

How long will the session last?

Please allow 1-2 hours for your session. I want to keep it as fun an expereince as possible for both you and your kids.

What happens if it rains?

I’ll look at the weather forecast a few days before the session and if it looks like a lot of rain, we can reschedule.

Do you take any posed shots?

I do take some family shots of everyone looking at the camera, as these are great for granny! For the rest of the session, I direct you into flattering poses with the best light, and let your family magic unfold.

It sounds great! How do we book?

Use the contact form below to send me an enquiry.  A £50 booking fee secures your date, with the remainder balance due one week before your shoot. I can’t wait to document your family story!

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!”
