Kind words from some past clients...

Maeve Walsh

“I really can’t recommend Maria enough for taking the most precious pictures of your newborn! The photo session itself was such an enjoyable experience. It was so lovely to take some time out and enjoy a couple of hours together as a new family… We ended up getting a gallery of photos and absolutely love them! They will be on our walls forever”.

Shaughna Whelan

“I booked a family photo session to mark two landmark birthdays… It is without doubt the best gift I could get! I loved working with Maria. She achieved such beautiful, relaxed outdoor photos… Everything she did was extremely professional and with great attention to detail… The results are beyond my expectations! I’d highly recommend Maria and I’d strongly consider making the investment in capturing your own family”.

Julie Currid, Initiafy

“Maria did headshots for the entire Initiafy team and we were delighted with them! Her calm demeanour puts you at ease immediately so she achieves very natural and authentic looking photographs. We love the end result. Thank you so much!”

ABOUT ME

I’m a coffee-chugging, jeans-loving, always-going mother of three (is it any wonder?) I’m also a passionate photographer by the way! Good people, good conversation and good wine is what makes me tick, especially when all three coincide!

I studied photography with a Degree in DCU, but it’s a passion that goes way back to my childhood. Nonetheless, I pursued a corporate career with a Masters for 10 years before finally making the leap to set up my own photography business in 2017. Like most of you, as busy mums and many entrepreneurs alike, I did all this while starting a family and working more late nights than I care to remember. But I wouldn’t change it for the world!

If you share this passion for beautiful photography, let me help you create the images that you love and get in touch so we can start planning your photo session!
