Autumn is my favourite time to photograph outdoors

The beautiful red and orange leaves create a perfect natural backdrop - and plenty for the kids to explore and play with too! This little guy (3 y.o) and I went for a walk around the Airfield Estate gardens in Dundrum in search for pinecones and insects hiding in the bushes (I didn't have the heart to tell him that I'm afraid of spiders!). We had the perfect weather to run around the park; the grass wasn't wet and the trees provided good shelter in case the rain decided to appear (which thankfully it didn't!).

Photoshoots for 3 year olds

Three years old is such a great age - the world is still full of wonder and it's such an easy age for me to photograph. As long as I spend lots of time playing with the kids (easy!) then I'm guaranteed to take some beautiful images. The children relax, naturally smile and have fun - which comes in handy, as they burn off a lot of energy and then love cuddles with mum and dad at the end! I'm also not afraid of bribes, but Airfield is perfect for this - as soon as the shoot is done, you can roam around the farm and see the chickens, goats, cows, horses and donkeys! Mum and Dad can then take a long earned rest afterwards in the cafe where they have great strong coffee!

The Great Outdoors

Dublin Family photoshoot

Outdoor photoshoots are great any time of the year, and thankfully I have never been rained out - touch wood! Yes, even in Ireland :)  The sessions don't take long - this one only lasted 35-40 minutes and we got hundreds of beautiful images that I know his parents will love. I always spend time at the start of the session with the camera well hidden away, so that the kids can get used to me, they can relax and get to know their surroundings. Once we've become mates, then I show them my camera and even let them take a funny photo of Mum and Dad!
