Hugo and Gabriel photos | sibling portrait Dublin

sibling photos dublin photography studio babies kids
Hugo was 3 months old When I meet him and his family in my studio for his baby photographs. I also meet Gabriel, Hugo’s big brother who was few months short of 2 years of age at the time. I can simpy say, the session was a lot of fun. Bribing, singing, playing toddler games to get the two boys in one picture together was the only way to work that day. But it did happen, the two boys in one place at one time and the end result, the big canvas that’s in their family home wall, is really worth it. [ess_grid alias="hugo gab blog"]

Nan’s update of the mantlepiece photos.

When I meet Leo first time he just turned one. We had a cake smash fun session.  Leo was such a great little smasher (you can see the post about it here) Sometime before last Christmas (2015) Leo's daddy contacted me wanting to purchase a gift voucher for Leo's granny - Nan. I truly believe this is one of the most thoughtful and precious gifts you can give - the photos full of memories. I was really looking forward to the planned session. We set the date in January to capture the memories. Nan lives in Donegal and she was staying with Leo and his parents for the weekend. She was a host of the house for the day.  We decided to start the photos inside with the possibility to...

Today’s post is about new baby called Lenny. When I have meet him he was only 10 days new little man. Such a sweet little peanut.   He is extremely lucky little man to have amazing big sister to watch him and play with him. Lexi “the lashes” (as her mum said it her nick name 🙂 ) I took beautiful images of Lexi holding and cuddling her little brother. These are truly priceless.   When he was settling in his mammy’s arms I took the beautiful image of mammy and baby moment.   Lenny was an amazing model on the day. I really enjoyed every minute. I hope he will come back soon for his Watch Me Grow milestone session.   Lenny, 10 days…

Birthday celebrations with a smash | First birthday photos Dublin

Meet Amelia. Amelia just turned one. Her mammy wanted to celebrate the big occasion with a special photo session. We arranged a cake smash photo session for her in my studio. Her mammy asked if her big brother can be in few photos.   After few non messy portraits we introduced a cake. Amelia loved every minute of the fun.   When we had enough of the treat there was one more fun part for Amelia. The bubble bath. Everyone needs a good wash after the hard work of destroying a yummy cake!   Amelia’s mum wanted to show off the beautiful images at the first birthday party. She was very organised and scheduled the session early enough to give us some time to process…

While back I meet a fantastic family from north Dublin. I was invited to take some fun cake smash photos to celebrate the twin girls’ first birthday. I set up the studio in a dining room. I started the session with some non messy portraits for both of the girls. Mum and dad had joined for a quick family photo too.   Then a cake arrived. Girls investigated it really well before taking into destroying it. And the fun begin. The cake gets everywhere. In the hair, on clothes, hands and little feet. After all that mess we gave the girls a bubbly bath. The amazement of bubbles floating in the air! There was some amazing actions going on! Even daddy got a little wash while watching the…
