weddings + portraits

A little about me . . .

I'm Vanessa, a girl from Monaghan who takes photos of the best days in life. I am married to a furniture making /selling handsome dude called; Paul (he is going to be delighted with that title), and I am the proud mammy to four gorgeous kiddos. Donnacha, Saorlaith, Fiadh and Caoilte. As you can see, we have a thing for Irish names in our family :). Sadly our little Saorlaith passed away shortly after birth but I can't write a bio paragraph about myself and not mention all of the beautiful children that we have been blessed with.



I have been taking photographs professionally for 8 years, and boy have I changed in those 8 years! I have become a mammy, learned (and currently learning) how to navigate the path of grief, we have built our home and all the while I have poured my everything into fine tuning my photography. Taking photographs is second nature to me. I think in through imagery, I communicate with my nearest and dearest through imagery and I even dream in photographs. Taking photographs of couples and families is what I'm meant to do. It's my thing and I love it!
