A photo session at home allows you to get pictures that are relaxed and natural, with a mix of candid and formal shots without having to leave the house. At various stages of life this works, when the children are too small to bring to a studio, or when they are older and between activities, sports, birthday parties it is difficult to get the time to bring everyone to a studio, so let the photographer come to you.
Family, baby and newborn photography.
Lifestyle photos on location or at home.
Avril is a professional photographer specialising in family, baby and new-born photography at home or on location in Dublin and the surrounding area. Using natural light, surroundings that you love, and her skills, Avril captures a mix of formal family portraits and candid lifestyle images that you will cherish forever.
It is always great to take the opportunity to mark and record special occasions, especially when everyone is dressed up and looking their best! It is a great chance to get a family photo or just an alternative to the school photo. This can be done on the day or another day when it is not so hectic!!
I frequently get asked is it possible to get that studio look at home and of course it is! Leave all that up to me!

I find baby photography sessions really rewarding. It is such a special time in a family’s life and it is a true privilege to capture it. I also know it is a very busy time. I would have loved professional images when my children were small, but the prospect of bringing them to a studio seemed too difficult at the time. The idea of someone coming to my house and taking photos of our family would have been amazing and I am so glad to be able to offer this service now. It is such an exciting but short time that it is nice to take a moment to record it.
Photo session can also be booked for a particular location, perhaps somewhere special to your family or maybe you would just like to get outdoors. I am more than happy to meet you at there. It can be great fun, resulting in natural, relaxed photographs. .
More and more I get asked to do extended family sessions, these are brilliant gifts for anniversaries and birthdays. I come from a large close family and I married into something similar, our cousin gatherings are always great fun. These sessions always have a sense of occasion about them, and are a wonderful opportunity to capture different generations together
