Pictures on walls and why they matter to your family

As a mobile newborn and family photographer covering all of Dublin and the commuter belt, I see so many different homes. And nothing makes me happier than a wall covered in portraits. Research has shown that printed portraits on the wall enhance a child’s self-esteem. And it’s easy to see why- you are showing your child, in a very visible way, that they matter, that they are important and that they are so loved.

Nothing makes me happier than hearing from a previous client. Especially when they say the magic words “We need to finish the wall”. Look at the beautiful wall Lorraine has created in her home of her gorgeous family. After doing baby’s newborn session a year ago, we have just done their cake smash. It was so much fun and we have captured more happy memories forever. It makes me so happy to see my work on my client’s walls. Photographs are meant to be displayed not hidden on a cd or a USB.

I would love to see any more walls from previous clients if they would like to share their pictures in the comments. Feel free to contact me on siobhain@tickletoes.ie or 087  7552092 to plan your very own session to fill your home with magical portraits of those you love the most.

Newborn Photography Customised for You

My newborn photography sessions are held in the comfort of your home and are completely bespoke to you. Before each session we can plan colour schemes, you can choose your favourite props from my wide selection or you can leave it all up to me. It’s entirely your decision. I love making sure your session is as enjoyable and as personal as possible. I always ask that if you have anything specific that you would like to use to let me know in advance of your newborn session. This gives me time to plan how to incorporate it best and create a really amazing image for you to enjoy for years to come.

Here are some examples of personal items used during sessions.

Belly Casting and Baby Photography

Baby In Mother's Belly Cast

Belly Casting is one of the other services that I offer. There is something so lovely about seeing baby all curled up in a perfect model of mummy’s bump.

It is so easy for you. I come to your home and bring everything that is required. It only takes around half an hour – 45 minutes. We then have a perfect replica of your bump to place your precious bundle in at their Newborn Session. So simple but so perfect!

I take the cast home after we make it (at between 36-38 weeks pregnancy) and I thicken and prime it to make it smooth for baby. Mummy keeps the cast after her session as a lovely memento of her pregnancy.

Last week the adorable Áine had a cake smash to celebrate her first birthday. This is a lovely, fun way to mark such a special occasion. I bring a colour co-ordinated cake, balloons and decorations for the event! It really makes for some very cute pictures of your little one.

As part of every Cake Smash and Splash Session I also bring an alternative background to capture some classic family portraits. They are great fun and a really fantastic way to create and capture some beautiful family memories.
