I get it, babies in props might not be your thing! Instead you want organic, natural newborn photography that just captures the now. I create authentic, genuine, honest photos of your newborn to treasure forever. A true investment to savour your family in a moment in time.As a natural light family photographer, I capture beauty in these ordinary, days, right at the beginning of life. 

My newborn photography is pure and instinctive, focusing primarily on the newness and rawness of your new parenting adventure. I take a baby led approach and capture all the in-between moments such as feeding, burping & the milk coma cuteness!

Cork Newborn Photographer

Organic, raw, natural newborn photography, Cork, Kerry & ireland

Those first few weeks of parenting whiz by so quickly, the moments fleeting and had to get back. My newborn photography allows you to enjoy those first few days forever more. Our photography session can take place in your home, or for older babies, outdoors at a local park, castle, beach or gardens. Anywhere that you will feel comfortable.

Service areas include but are not limited to: Cork, West Cork, Kinsale, Carrigaline, Kinsale, Crosshaven, Clonakilty, Youghal, Cobh, Douglas, Bandon, Bantry, Skibbereen, Midleton, Mallow, Schull, Glengarrif, Ballincollig, Kenmare and Killarney. Travel outside of these areas may include a small travel fee to include additional travel time & related expenses.

When to get newborn photography?

The best time to book a newborn photographer is within the first 10 days after birth. Ideally you would need to book the session, after your 20 week scan and choose a timeframe within 2 weeks of your due date. I do have flexibility on this professional date as babies have a mind of their own, when it comes to making a grand entrance. As I book up months in advance, try not to leave it until you have your beautiful bundle of joy as I may not be able to schedule you in.

What to expect at your newborn Photography session

All sessions take place in your home, where you feel most comfortable. As a newborn photographer, I travel all over Cork, Kerry and Ireland to capture newborns in their first 10 days of life.

The sessions will take place in a room in your house that has the most natural light. So this may be a bedroom, living room or even a hall way. The sessions aren't staged with props but are more reflective of what newborn life is like in your home in the first few weeks.
