About me


Award Winning MATERNITY Newborn and Family Photographer Baldoyle North Dublin.

Irish Newborn Photographer of the Year Finalist 2023 and 2024.

Glimpse into My World: Céire Rhein, Your Dublin Family Photographer

Hello there! I’m Céire Rhein, the photographer with a passion for capturing life’s precious moments. But a camera isn’t the only thing that defines me. Take a peek behind the lens and discover who I am beyond the photographer’s eye:

Family: My Anchor and Inspiration

Family is the cornerstone of my life. I’m a proud mama to a bright and energetic 10-year-old who keeps me on my toes! My wonderful spouse is my partner in crime, always there to support my creative endeavors. And let’s not forget Lexi, our adorable cockapoo, who brings endless cuddles and playful moments. 

But my family extends beyond my immediate household. I have three amazing sisters and a brother, and together we’re a close-knit bunch. We’re constantly on calls and WhatsApp, sharing laughter, support, and the joys (and sometimes challenges!) of life. These strong family bonds are a source of immense inspiration for me. Witnessing the love and connection within my own family fuels my desire to capture the same love and connection in yours.

Overcoming Challenges, Embracing Life

Life hasn’t always been easy. At the age of 21, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Facing this challenge head-on taught me the importance of resilience and finding joy in the everyday moments. In December 2022, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Choosing to undergo a bilateral mastectomy with DIEP reconstruction under the care of Prof. Hill at Beaumont Hospital

 Today, I’m a stronger, more grateful person, cherishing every moment with my loved ones and pursuing my passions with renewed vigor. 

Fueled by Movement and Wellness

When I’m not behind the camera, you might find me hitting the pavement with my running shoes on. Exercise is my personal sanctuary, a space where I clear my head and recharge my creative batteries. This passion for movement and well-being translates into my photography, infusing my work with a sense of energy and vibrancy.

My dedication to capturing life’s precious beginnings is evident in every frame. As an award-winning Dublin Maternity Photographer and Dublin Newborn Photographer, a finalist for the Irish Newborn Photographer of the Year in both 2023 and 2024, I combine artistic vision with a genuine, caring approach in each session.

“I can still remember the magic of becoming a mammy, seven years ago. My son’s first year was the most magical year of my life. His sweet baby smell, the little noises, all his milestones, his tiny fingers and toes… It went in the blink of an eye.”

You may feel reassured to know that I’ve photographed over 500 babies through my lens at Captured Photography since 2016. My clients often call me ‘The Baby Whisperer,’ because they can tell how much I adore the newborn stage – the magic of those tiny features, the joy of those earliest expressions, the beginning of a whole new chapter for you. Yes, I remember how daunting those first few weeks can be so being able to document these early days in your baby’s life is just so special. Truly, it’s an honour to be invited to capture some of the most treasured images you’ll ever own. But we all know that birth is just one part of the journey into parenthood, don’t we?
