Experience the Magic

Step into my cosy studio just outside Mullingar in Castlepollard, Co. Westmeath, where birthday sessions come to life. Lasting about an hour, these sessions are dedicated to capturing the joy and excitement of your little one. Depending on the time of year, birthday sessions can also be held outdoors. My carefully created milestone sessions have been designed to remain timeless and forever loved, they stay in line with me photography style. I do not create character themed (eg Mickey Mouse etc) sessions.

Capturing Every Moment

We'll start by capturing some genuine smiles and candid moments, and if you wish, we can include a couple of family images too. Then, it's time to change the birthday girl/boy into something more suitable for the 'birthday' images and capture some great fun moments! Smashing a cake totally optional, some parents like to do this and others done, the session will be tailored to suit your needs. Afterward, we'll dive into some bubbly bath portraits, a fun and adorable way to clean up after all the excitement! While little giggles are not always guaranteed, every reaction is priceless, making for a gallery full of cherished memories.

Your Memories

If you'd like your images ready in time for the birthday date, please reach out well in advance to check availability. Editing typically takes 3-4 weeks, ensuring your memories are beautifully preserved and ready to be shared with loved ones. For this reason it is best to book your Milestone Session in advance of your childs birthday.

Your Session - A Memorable Experience

My milestone sessions are not just about capturing images; they're about documenting this very fleeting time of your childs life, when they are growing and changing so much and important milestones like walking are all underway. Your milestone photoshoot will last about 1 hour, giving plenty of time to capture your little loves character. I will discuss with you what your ideas and hopes are and create a session setup just for you.

Meet Your Photographer

Hi & welcome. I'm Laura, a dedicated family photographer based in the heart of the midlands in County Westmeath. As a mother, I understand how quickly our little ones grow and change. Every smile, every step, every milestone is a precious moment that deserves to be cherished forever. My passion for capturing these fleeting moments began with my own children. Their milestones, from first smiles to first steps, inspired me to help other families preserve these special times. With a blend of creativity, patience, and a deep love for storytelling, I am committed to crafting beautiful, timeless portraits that celebrate your child's unique journey.

During our sessions, I strive to create a relaxed and enjoyable environment where your child can be themselves. Whether it's a birthday, a special achievement, or just capturing everyday magic, I'm here to document these moments with care and attention to detail. You can relax and enjoy the session, knowing that I am dedicated to capturing the essence of your child's milestones in a way that will be treasured for generations.

Can siblings or parents be included in the milestone session?

Absolutely! I encourage siblings and parents to join in the session. Capturing the bond between family members adds an extra layer of emotion and connection to the photos.

What should my child wear for the session?

I offer styling guidance and have a selection of outfits available for your child. I recommend simple, comfortable clothing that allows their personality to shine. We can discuss specific outfit ideas during your consultation.

What if my child is fussy or uncooperative during the session?

As a mother, I understand that children can have off days. I have plenty of patience and experience in working with little ones. We will take breaks as needed and create a relaxed atmosphere to ensure your child feels comfortable and happy.

When should I book a milestone session?

It's best to book your milestone session a few weeks in advance to ensure availability, especially if you have a specific date in mind. This allows us to plan and prepare for a wonderful session experience.

What types of products do you offer after the session?

I offer a range of high-quality products including prints, albums, and framed wall art. Each product is designed to beautifully showcase your child's milestones and create lasting keepsakes that your family will cherish for generations.
