Irish photographer - Editorial | lifestyle | Couples | family
I’ve been working as a creative for 20 years now. That’s even hard for me to believe when I say it loud. First as an illustrator, then a designer, then an art editor. My interest in weddings and portraits began whilst working as a designer on bridal magazines. Around that time my children were born and everything changed. I picked up the camera again, purely to document as a mother and realised the impact photographs could have on the heart when loved ones were in the frame. Since then I’ve never looked back. It’s a discovery of pure joy when you realise you can communicate a feeling or a story with images alone, and others feel it too. “I use my eyes, my camera and sensitivity to capture people and events, but truly these photographs come from the heart.” The feedback I get from my clients is what keeps me going. Nothing else.
“You have such a feel for the moments that matter. I remember on the day saying to myself, “Remember how you feel right now”, trying to somehow take mental snapshots of everything. Now I don’t have to worry – as I have this gift from you; a sweet, sensitive, intuitive feel for the moments and people that mean the most to us in the world.”
When taking photographs, I like to keep things simple and relaxed. I’m seeking moments where real emotional connections are present in the interactions between couples and families. This can’t happen if your checking boxes on a shotlist. The best photographs happen through a relationship of trust.
To create intimate, honest images for clients. To document their love well. To create photos they will still treasure 20 years from now. To make it a bit of an adventure… These are the things that feel important to me. If they’re important to you also, I’d love to be there.
“I use my eyes, my camera and sensitivity to capture people and events, but truly these photographs come from the heart.”
