Hi! I’m Christin ( say Christine, its a long story but I’ll gladly tell you about it over a cuppa!). I’m a photographer based in Belfast, Northern Ireland and live with my amazing husband ( Mr Beardy) and our two Maine Coons ( Marshall & Zelda). I am based in Belfast and I photograph Newborns and Families all over Northern Ireland. 

Thats the Husband and I, on our wedding day just casually having axes thrown over our heads!

I love capturing details, raw and authentic emotions and I'm happiest photographing in natural light! I specialise in Newborn and Wedding Photography ( you can check out my Wedding Photography here)

 I studied Fine and Applied Art at University and knew from day one that this was the career path I wanted to pursue. I’ve been a  freelance portrait/family photographer for over 10 years and after attending my first Newborn Photography training workshop with Emer McCubbin in 2016, I was hooked.  Capturing your brand new baby in this most precious stage of their life is one of the most rewarding experiences ever! The best thing about being a Newborn photographer is that I get to build a completely bespoke and custom designed session for you and capture this wonderful human being that you made in a creative way! Its fun, full of emotion and no two sessions are the same!

I created the Snug Sessions as an alternative to typical Newborn photography, I wanted to give parents a new type of newborn photography that is natural, authentic and focuses on your baby and their gorgeous details rather than overly posed and staged poses. I follow baby led posing, which means I listen to your babies body and how they naturally curl and lie while asleep. The outcome is natural, comfortable and beautiful. Combined with textures, vintage items and bespoke styling, you are sure to receive a gallery like no other!
