Outdoor Family Photography | Phoenix Park, Dublin

Children playing by park fence in sunlight.

We were in Phoenix park, taking a stroll around Farmleigh House when we saw a dog looking quite friendly. Oliver and the girls chatted to the owner and got closer… which resulted in a little someone getting licked on the nose. She wasn’t very impressed… Her face still makes me laugh 6 months later.

When Catherine first got in touch last spring, she explained that a photoshoot with her girls had been on her to-do list for ages, but she never got around to organising it. This is the reality of so many families. Not knowing where to start, how to find the right photographer and more urgent life “stuff” getting in the way. I’m so glad I came recommended to her and she finally got photographs of her family on her walls.

We spent 4 hours together in the park: picnic, getting icecreams (always a big hit), hugging trees, eating cake (look at Oliver sneaking a big mouthful of it behind the girls’ backs), throwing and collecting gravel as well as sending a little girl flying into the air.

I was gifted with so many natural expressions from the two sisters. Her parents agreed it was really the best way to capture their personalities. This would have been a lot harder in a more traditional studio setup and a lot less relaxed.
