We loved our family photo session with Nicola! She was creative, patient, and incredibly relaxed. As a mother, she knows how to interact with the kiddos so that they keep having fun while getting the sweetest shots. We wanted our photos to be slightly different than the norm, and Nicola had some great ideas for backdrops. Go with Nicola!
Family sessions are all about fun and playing with your kiddos as if I wasn’t there. I adore photographing kids and capturing that special glint in their eye, a bright burst of their character when they are truly involved and in the moment, these are the special times that reflect so much joy. The connection that you have with your partner and your kids is what I’m looking for when I spend time photographing your lovely family. I’m not too fussed on anything super fancy or staged, I want to capture you guys being yourselves.
It’s also worth a mention that there is no perfect season to plan a family shoot, only perfect clothing, as the old saying goes! This is all pretty handy to remember as living in N.Ireland who knows what season is ahead of us day by day. Don’t be wary of planning your family sessions during those chillier times, a good hat and scarf combo and a chunky knitted jumper look pretty awesome in that wintery light.
Your family session will last approx one and a half hours, at a location of your choice, we have so many wonderful opportunities in N.Ireland to go on a mini adventure and capture some epic backdrops, and there is also the option of photographing around your home and garden if you would prefer something more personal. I love to capture a good mix of full family groups, sibling shots and individual images for you. During your family session, your little people are most definitely the boss and my number one priority, I work very closely with how they are feeling and cater your session to their needs.

Nicola! I really can't tell you how much we love love LOVE the photos you took of our family celebration in the summer. I spent the whole afternoon tearing up just looking at how stunning they are. You really captured the essence of the day and I can't thank you enough. Sinéad & Family.

We had such a fun family session with Nicola, creating some memories of our beautiful boy’s long hair before he had the chop. We had an energetic session up and down Bangor Marina with rocks to climb and new spaces to explore, Nicola was great at keeping Isaac's attention and capturing those natural moments. Nic put us all at ease photographing us as we played and ultimately captured Isaac's joyful personality on camera - as well as making his mum and dad look like we scrub up well! I don’t know how she does it! It was a great and relaxed experience with beautiful results. We’d highly recommend her services.

Choosing a photographer from across the Atlantic was a bit daunting, but as soon as I found Nicola’s website I had a feeling she was the one. When she messaged me back, I knew she was the perfect choice. Her communication with me before our trip went above and beyond. While we were visiting Northern Ireland we absolutely fell in love with our cottage and the scenery around it. Nicola captured our family in this scenery beautifully. The photographs she took are by far our favorite souvenir of our trip. Nicola has an amazing ability to listen to what your ideas are and make them better with her own creativity.
Thank you again so very much!!!

Since 2011, when Nicola came and photographed our premature twins when they arrived home, we have insisted she takes care of any family photos shoots since then. She's just so lovely to be around and puts us all at our ease, while still managing to capture the most beautiful photos. She has a wonderful sense of style and composition, and it makes it almost impossible to narrow down which photos we want to display - they are all stunning. Our twins are almost 9 now and not very patient when it comes to having photos taken, so we really appreciated Nicola's gentle and patient approach with them on our last photo session.
