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!!
We’re so happy you are considering having Hippy and Bloom to photograph the best of your family. We are inspired by families like yours and it is a passion of ours to capture the beautiful, raw authentic you.
Although there is a consistency to our work, our aim is to give you images that are real, romantic and full of life.
With our genuine and relaxed approach 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 adore light – beautiful soft natural light and we love working outdoors in the gorgeous Wicklow countryside.

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 of 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 early morning or evening time – choosing the best day nearer the time weather wise for your shoot.
What should I wear?
Think complimentary colours and muted tones. Best to avoid big slogans or logos as they can be a distraction. Be comfortable. Be yourself!
