Q: How long does the session last?


A: I would always put aside approx. an hour for a family portrait shoot. However this would vary, depending on the size of the family and the ages of the children – young children can get tired of the camera very quickly, so in these situations, I will work very fast to get the best out of them!

Q: What should I wear?


A: The most important thing is that you are comfortable with what you are wearing. I like to keep my portraits looking timeless so I would recommend wearing simple, neutral colours. Smart casual always works best. Please try to avoid heavily patterned items of clothing or anything with logos. This also applies for children.

Q: Where are the sessions held?


A: All of my portrait shoots are held in the comfort of my cosy studio in Fashion City, Ballymount.

Q: How do I view my photos?


A: Your images will be ready to view approximately 10 days to 2 weeks after your shoot. You will be invited back to the studio where you can view your images for the first time on a large screen in the comfort of our viewing room. This will also be the time to place your order.

Q: How do I receive my photos?


A: Everything from the portrait studio comes as a fully finished printed image finished in a custom frame, block mount, glass block or photo album. Your finished portraits will be ready for collection approx 3 weeks from the time of order.
