Lifestyle Family Photography in Northern Ireland

If you are searching for a family photographer in Northern Ireland with a laid back and candid approach – I would love to work with you!

I am based just outside Belfast but travel all over Northern Ireland for family sessions. Some popular family shoot locations include Murlough Beach in Newcastle, Giants Causeway, Whiterocks Beach and Antrim Castle Gardens.

My approach to family photography has always been to let the story tell itself – capturing your family as you are. Whether its going for a walk for a family photoshoot in Antrim Castle Gardens, exploring the beaches along the Causeway Coast or even just having a cosy lifestyle family photography session in your home – I would LOVE to capture these moments for you. 

For the early newborn days, I highly recommend a lifestyle shoot at home. The early days are so unpredictable and yet so sacred, and I think it’s nice to spend time capturing the little moments we often overlook in your family environment. It’s always nice to get some shots of your newly decorated nursery too! (I know we all put so much time and effort into these things!)

For toddlers running wild, a family shoot in a forest or beach where they can explore their surroundings is always a fun way to spend a session. 

For larger, older groups, why not visit somewhere special to you as a family? Somewhere you grew up going to for days out as a kid. It’s always nice to have some sentiment behind these memories. 

A question I often get asked is – what do we wear?! I recommend neutral and pale tones, whites or blacks. Try to co-ordinate as best you can and stay away from fluorescent colours. You can view a mood board for family sessions here.

Kind Words

We have had several family shoots with Julie and we absolutely loved all the photos we got! Everything was so easy and relaxed which is difficult with four kids all under the age of three. She managed to capture so many special moments that would have been so easily overlooked. We have so many amazing photos to look back on that will always hold such amazing memories. I honestly can not recommend and thank her enough, any future photos we will most definitely be calling on Julie again.
