It makes me happy that you are here!


I am a newborn and family photographer in Ireland serving Dublin, Meath, Louth, Kildare and Wicklow.

My story with photography started 12 years ago when I was in Fashion College, in Belas Artes - São Paulo, I fell in love with Fashion Photography and decided to go the start my photography journey.

My first Fashion Photography class, we were playing around with the lights in the studio

My first photography job was as an assistant for the photographer

Vladi Fernandes' Fashion Photography Studio Casa de Moda, back in Brazil.


Then I worked with photographer Rachel Guedes, a family photographer, founder of Projeto Família, and there I started photographing children's birthday parties and christenings and occasions.


Then I went to work as a photographer on cruise ships, my first contract was on the Disney Cruise Line - Disney Magic and I really loved my time there!

Working on cruise ships was an intense but amazing experience, I learnt so much but the best part was definitely getting to travel and see so many stunning places.

I've also started a photography project Breastfeeding An Act Of Love to help #NormaliseBreastfeeding

My photos are very natural with minimum posing and I love capturing candid moments and interactions of families' everyday moments.


My first Award Winning Photo:



In 2019 my daughter Erin was born.


One week old

Becoming a mum has been a life changing experience!


It has taught me so much about the importance of keeping our little ones memories.


They won't remember anything from their first years of life so it is in our hands to document these memories for them.



Post nap cuteness!

I am sure my baby girl will love to look back at her photos and will be grateful for me to have captured these precious memories for her.

Are you expecting a baby?

Just had a baby?

Celebrating an important day?

Or would like to create some family memories?


I would love to tell your love story!


I wrote this blog post talking a little bit about how I work:



Have a lovely day,

Camila
