What do I do?
I run family and communion photography sessions at home or on location for you to record this time either on the day of the ceremony or another day that suits you. And you get beautiful communion photographs.
I love natural portraits, using natural light at home or outdoors. This allows for communion photographs that are a change from a studio style.
Kids can be kids, enjoy their day, and record it with lovely photographs.
What is the best time to have your communion photograph session ?
This all depends on if you are doing the session on the day of the communion or another day.
On the day of the Communion?
If you want to do the session on the day of the communion and you have young siblings, I would advice to do it before the mass, while everyone is in good form, not needing naps and clean!!
If your children are older and don’t need naps etc, then anytime on the day will work. Just keep in mind sessions are best when only those involved in the session are there. So if you have guests coming on the day, try to organise the session when they are not there.
Many houses are stretched with setting up of an area for guests and bouncy castles taking over the garden. I can work around the smallest of areas but be aware of extra items that you might not want in the photo. If you want action packed images, with kids on a bouncy castle that can be done, but if you don’t please make it clear in your booking form. A local park can be a great alternative, the background is spacious, neutral and you are away from your guest, allowing you to relax for your photos.
This also works and is a bit more relaxed, as you are not under pressure with other commitments.
Who can be included in your communion photographs?
Whoever you want, Grandparents, Godparents etc. Just remember the more people involved the longer the session takes. I always advice, to have a priority list of shots that you want to get. That way I will get the ones you want and helps the session moves quickly.
Where do you take the communion photographs ?
I can do your session in your own home, indoors or outdoors. I also do lots of sessions at locations that are convenient for the family. Often this is a park near their home or church. If the weather allows for it, outside is always great. I cover the greater Dublin area and I am familiar with lots of gorgeous parks that make beautiful backdrops for your photographs. I have worked in St Enda’s Park, Palmerston Park, Marlay Park, Deerpark, Phoenix park, The memorial Gardens, to name but a few. If there is a park that you love and would like to use for your session, just let me know. I love checking out new places.
If you are interested in booking a session or discussing it further please contact me.
