Newborn and Family Photographers based in Co. Wicklow, Ireland.

 Bronwyn O’Brien | Family Photography

Sharon Smith | Newborn Photography

 

Our work is inspired by childhood summers spent running wild and free barefoot in the sand resulting in images that are genuine, real, romantic and full of life.

We have studied the art of posing and although we take a “lifestyle” approach to photography you will receive gentle direction from us to ensure that your personality and connection shines through in your images.

We believe that being a parent is the greatest reason to live. We make sure to focus on the natural “in-between” moments of this chapter in your family’s journey – all that you can’t put into words.

We adore light – beautiful, soft natural light.

We specialise in Outdoor / In-home shoots that are informal and relaxed resulting in framed and large galleries of images that are bursting with connection energy and love.

Images that you can look at and feel that overwhelming love you have for your family for years to come.

Newborn Session

NEWBORN SESSION

Sharon Smith

We love what we do!  Our relaxed sessions reflect our photographic style and our desire to create images which stand alone as beautiful pieces of wall art, capturing this fleeting moment in your baby’s life. As mothers ourselves we know only too well how quickly the day comes when your little one no longer fits in your arms. It is so special to be able to look back at the images taken in those early days and be brought back in time to those intense, wonderful moments, feeling again her little hand reaching for your hair as you feed her or his small solid weight up against your shoulder while you settle him.

We understand the pressures facing brand new parents and we love nothing more than to look after you with a relaxed and comfortable experience. As a nurse, Sharon has your baby’s safety as her number one priority. We adapt our sessions according to baby’s needs, leaving plenty of time for feeding and settling. And yes, we KNOW you probably feel wrecked and unattractive immediately postpartum but please believe us when we say: you are beautiful; you are amazing; you have just done something incredibly brave – let’s honour this moment because one day you will be glad you did!!

“Where there is perfection there is no story to tell” Ben Okri

Our family photo shoots take place outdoors, on location in the beautiful countryside/beaches in Co. Wicklow using beautiful soft natural light at golden hour.

 Our sessions are informal and fun capturing your unique connection as a family accompanied by all the chaos, laughter and adventure that is family life.

We will direct you in a relaxed informal way so that your images reflect the true you capturing the essence of who you are not just what you look like! As a Montessori Teacher, Bronwyn aims to capture families and children’s individual personalities however, reserved, chaotic or crazy!

All you have to do is relax and enjoy this quality family time together.

If you love our style of photography you are going to love a family session with us-we promise you will have fun!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where will my session be held?

Our newborn sessions are held in the comfort of your own home but don’t panic!!!! We don’t need you to live in some glorious palace and we don’t need the place to be spick and span – trust us, we know what it’s like juggling the demands of a new little one! We promise we will be able to find the perfect spot within your home and you will have images that are all the more meaningful because they bring you right back in time to that familiar space.

Our family sessions take place on location within Co. Wicklow where we are happy to recommend locations in the woods, on the beach or perhaps in your own garden.

A small travel fee may apply for locations more than 25 miles from home base.

How long will my session be?

Newborn sessions typically last 2 hours and our family sessions usually take 45 mins to 1 hour.

We like to do newborn sessions within the first two weeks of life but will happily photograph babies at all ages and stages!

What time do these shoots happen?

Our newborn studio sessions are usually scheduled between 9.30am and 1.30pm while our family outdoor sessions are held at sunrise or sunset – choosing the best day nearer the time weather wise for your shoot.

What should I wear?

Think complimentary colours and muted tones. We will chat with you beforehand to help advise on what best to wear. Best to avoid big slogans or logos as they can be a distraction. Be comfortable. Be yourself!

What if my Children / Husband won’t co-operate?!

Children (and husbands…..) don’t usually respond well to being told to smile or strike a pose. The best thing is to just let them relax and we will capture their gorgeous natural self.  Remember our aim is to capture images that show the essence of who you are, not just what you look like. Most of our best work is full of ‘imperfect’ poses! We will be giving lots of direction to you all throughout the shoot so you just concentrate on relaxing and enjoying this quality time together.

It really helps to make sure that young children have rested and eaten before a shoot! Bring some water and snacks (non-messy ones!!) and we can take breaks.

It’s good to prepare young children beforehand so they are not surprised by us turning up with our cameras! Maybe let them know that a friend will be taking some photos. It’s highly likely that by the end of the session we will be great mates!

How can I order prints and products from you?

YAY! We are passionate about our encouraging our families to display their images! We work with a fantastic local artisan framer to produce custom designed frames for your home.  We want to make sure these precious memories don’t just exist online.

Within 3-4 weeks of your photo session e-mail a link to your own personal online gallery where you can choose the products and packages that best suit your budget.

Will I get the digital photos from my session?

We do offer high resolution digital files with our packages.

How do you choose which images end up in my gallery?

We look at each and every image we capture at your session and we make our selection on which images represent you as a family and ourselves as artists.

We so look forward to working with you and your family. Don’t be shy about asking any questions and we will see you soon!
