Leah + Michele | County Kerry couple portrait My first shoot after the lockdown this year. It was such a relief to get back into it. My cameras had been out of the bag on and off, to catch shots of the kids, but it wasn’t until we all took a trip down to Kerry...

    Family photographer Northern Ireland | Coastal Portrait Our children grow so quickly. School rolls on. The weeks slip by and the weekends clock up. Then, they’re growing out of their clothes. We stand them up straight against the kitchen door and pull out the measuring tape. And there it is. They’ve grown – and we...

      Johann + James | Family portrait Northern Ireland Between weddings last year, I got to do some family portrait shoots too. I love working with kids, though somehow find it much easier to photograph other people’s than my own, who always want to hide or take my camera. Johann and James’ crew were brilliant. A...

        Jillian + Ben | Engagement photos Northern Ireland I love these guys. I did a fine job (probably) of keeping my professional hat on when they told me earlier in the year that they wanted to book for their wedding. But I was cartwheeling in my head.

          Nadine + Donal | Family photographer Belfast   A stone’s throw from Nadine and Donal’s house in East Belfast, is the lovely Stormont Estate. It’s beautiful pretty much any time of the year. Long rows of lime trees line the road up to Stormont House, and off to the sides pathways lead through wooded areas...

            Rachel and Chris | A Crawfordsburn engagement shoot How fast the year has flown. I did this engagement shoot for Rachel and Chris at Crawfordsburn Country Park back in the spring. Everything was so green. As I write, the leaves are falling outside in a cold October wind – and this morning I was marvelling at the arrival on...

              Belfast Portrait Photographer | Hannah McPhillimy These pictures are from a recent portrait shoot with singer-songwriter Hannah McPhillimy. Hannah was great to work with. We headed up to Ballyboley Forest, which I picked to give a simple contrast against the warm, inviting character of her music. If you don’t know her work yet, head over to...

                Elizabeth + Tom | Belfast engagement photography My shoot with Elizabeth and Tom offered the chance to get out for a walk together on a beautiful, autumnal Sunday morning. The morning light cut through the mist as we walked, chatted, and took photos, and a carpet of wet leaves squelched underfoot. Elizabeth and Tom were...
