From snuggly mohair onesies to custom-knit hats, each piece is chosen for its quality and ability to create a beautiful scene around your little star.

Q: Why choose Céire Rhein Photography for a newborn photoshoot in Dublin?

A: By choosing Céire Rhein, you’re not just booking a newborn baby photographer; you’re embarking on a bespoke experience where every detail is crafted with care and professionalism. I am committed to providing you with premium service from the moment of booking until you receive your final baby portraits, mirroring the five-star experience I mastered as a high-end hotel manager.

Q: Are you Feeling Camera-Shy Post-Birth?

A: No worries at all. I am a Mammy too, I have been there and know how you feel. I will work my magic and have you not only looking a million dollars, but feeling it too. I specialise in gentle, flattering poses, guiding you to look and feel your best, capturing the beauty of new parenthood with sensitivity and grace.

Q: Can I still book a newborn photoshoot even if my baby is already born?

A: Absolutely! While ideally baby photoshoots are held within the first 14 days after birth (with 5-8 days being best for sleepy posing), I understand circumstances vary. Please get in touch with Céire as soon as possible to discuss availability. She will do her best to fit you into the schedule.

Q: When should I ideally book my newborn photoshoot?

A: The best time to secure your spot for a baby photoshoot and to get on Ceire’s busy calendar is after your 20-week scan. This allows you to relax and focus on your pregnancy journey, knowing your baby photoshoot is already booked, most newborn baby photographers’ diaries fill up fast.

Q: What if I don’t know my exact arrival date?

A: No worries! I book provisional bookings 2 weeks after your due date. Once your little one arrives safely, simply contact Céire to confirm a baby photoshoot within the first 14 days.

Q: How long do newborn sessions typically last?

A: Newborn-Baby photoshoots typically take 1-2 hours, while family sessions can range from 1-3 hours depending on the package and the number of family members involved. The focus is on a relaxed pace, with plenty of feeding, changing, and cuddling breaks for a stress-free environment.

Q: What’s the studio environment like?

A: I maintain a comfortable temperature specifically for your newborn’s well-being, so feel free to dress lightly. It’s a warm and cosy space designed to create a perfect environment for newborns (and many parents find themselves relaxing and enjoying the experience too!)

Q: Do you have newborn props and outfits?

A: I have gained a large range of newborn photography props and newborn baby outfits especially made for photography. During my time as a newborn baby photographer, I have invested in a large amount of adorable, high-quality props and outfits available for you to choose from. This includes beautiful mohair onesies, soft woollen blankets, hand-knit woollen bonnets, delicate hair bands, and custom-made outfits – everything you need to create timeless and beautiful baby portraits. You’re also welcome to bring your special items for a personal touch.

Q: Can I include extended family and pets in the photoshoot?

A: Absolutely! I love capturing the love between your entire family. Grandparents are welcome, (see “Pricing & Packages for which packages include extended family “). Well-behaved, freshly groomed Dogs can also join the photo shoot, but you must inform your newborn baby photographer when booking.

Q: What if I’m not feeling my best after birth? Can we still capture beautiful photos?

A: Family photos are incredibly precious! Don’t hesitate to share any concerns you might have. As a seasoned professional newborn and family photographer, Céire is skilled in creating flattering portraits through gentle posing and guidance. Your comfort is her top priority.

Q; I had a Toddler they are not at the best stage at the moment what should I do?

A: Capturing a child’s spirit is more about playful moments than posed smiles. With over 10 years of experience, I create fun, relaxed sessions that bring out their true selves – from joyful smiles to curious glances. The result? Photos that capture their unique personalities and all their charming quirks. With the tender age of 2 it’s all about patience.

Q: What should we wear for the photoshoot?

A: Looking your best and feeling comfortable is key! I recommend opting for earthy tones like cream, beige, soft browns, and muted mustard tones. Think texture, wools add a nice texture to your images, These warm colours create a soft look to your baby &  family portraits. Try to stay away from plain white t-shirts and tops and go for more details like chunky knit cardigans, and fine wool tops or jumpers for Men. For more specific outfit recommendations, I will send you a newborn baby photoshoot preparation guide before your session on how best to prepare for your baby photoshoot and what to wear, this is a detailed guide covering everything.

Q: How much do your newborn photoshoot packages cost?

The first gallery is the unedited version of your baby and family photoshoot, For the best experience admiring all the beautiful details in your newborn photographs, we recommend using a large screen like your computer monitor or even connecting your phone to your TV through a casting device.

What to wear to your Newborn Photography photoshoot?

Newborn Baby Photographer Dublin Baby Girl

Want to create a look that’s both beautiful and timeless?

Earthy Elegance:

  • Nature’s Palette: Ditch the trendy fads and embrace a calming earth-tone colour scheme. Think cream, beige, soft browns, and even a touch of muted mustard yellow. These warm colours create a harmonious backdrop for your precious moments.
  • Textured Touch: Want to add depth and visual interest? Consider incorporating chunky knit sweaters, cosy cardigans, or flowy linen pieces in earthy tones for both mom and dad. These elements add a touch of nature-inspired charm to your photos.

Effortless Elegance for Mom:

  • Confidence is Key: You’ve just achieved an incredible feat! Choose an outfit that makes you feel absolutely beautiful. Remember, your comfort shines through in photos.
  • Layered Look: Skip the plain white t-shirt! Opt for a flowy cream blouse or a soft beige top layered with a chunky knit cardigan in a muted brown or mustard yellow. This adds texture and visual interest while keeping you comfortable.
  • Simple Sophistication: Keep accessories minimal and elegant. Delicate jewellery adds a touch of sparkle without being distracting.

Dad’s Dapper Look:

  • Comfort First: Dad deserves to feel relaxed and enjoy the moment! Opt for comfortable clothing that reflects his style.
  • Classic Companions: Neutral and muted tones like earth-toned browns, beiges, or soft greens pair perfectly with mom’s outfit. Avoid matching exactly, as coordinating colours create a more cohesive look.
  • Shirt Options: Depending on the overall theme, Dad can choose a collared shirt in a natural linen fabric for a textured look, a soft henley top in a muted mustard yellow, or a cable-knit sweater in a warm brown for a touch of cosiness. The goal is for Dad to feel relaxed and ready to capture genuine moments with his precious family.

Sibling Style Tips:

  • Coordinated Cool: Ditch the matchy-matchy look! Instead, coordinate colours or complementary styles. This allows sibling personalities to shine! For girls, a beautiful linen dress in a soft cream shade adds a touch of elegance and texture.
  • Boys’ Chic: For your little man, a beige knit sweater or a soft brown tee paired with comfy jeans creates a timeless and relaxed look. The knit adds warmth and texture, while the jeans provide a casual touch.
  • Patterns with Caution: Opt for solid colours or subtle patterns in earthy tones to avoid outfits competing with the love in the photos.
  • Embrace Playfulness: Don’t be afraid of fun! Whether it’s a cute mustard yellow headband for your little one or a little brown teddy bear for a prop, capturing their personalities creates heartwarming memories.
  • Layering for Depth: Adding layers with cardigans, suspenders, or vests in earth tones adds dimension to sibling outfits for adorable photo opportunities.

What to Leave Out:

  • Busy Patterns: Large, busy patterns, especially stripes, can distract from the emotional connection in your photos.
  • Neon Nights: These vibrant colours can cast unnatural tones on skin tones.
  • Logo Overload: Avoid clothing with logos or graphics to keep the focus on your family.
  • Extreme Contrasts: Outfits with stark contrasts can compete for attention. Aim for a harmonious colour scheme within the earth-tone palette.
  • Trendy Traps: Fashions can fade, but memories last a lifetime. Opt for classic styles with textures you’ll love for years to come.

By prioritising comfort, classic styles, and timeless earth tones with a touch of texture, you’ll create a beautiful photoshoot that reflects your unique family bond and captures memories you’ll cherish forever. Let’s work together to make your newborn photoshoot a truly magical experience!

We had out newborn photoshoot with Céire Rhein in early March and it was a fantastic experience. Ceire is so professional and the results were amazing - we love the pictures! She was very communicative during the entire process and answered any questions I had very quickly. On the day she was welcoming and very professional, she was also excellent with our toddler! The finished product was amazing, memories we will have forever. I would highly recommend Ceire! Elaine

We first went to Ceire for a maternity session in 2019 for our first daughter and was first thing on my list to book this time around also. We rarely document the pregnancy and i have never been so delighted with photos of the amazing experience and then to return for the newborn session after the baby had come. The time and care Ceire gives to her sessions is second to none and we have been delighted with the beautiful pictures every time. Cannot reccomend Ceire enough for her beautiful work. Thank you for being part of our journey.

We had our family/newborn photos done with Dublin Newborn Photographer Céire Rhein yesterday and had a great experience. This was our second time to get newborn photos done with Céire, we also had photos done 2 years ago. Céire was friendly, kind and patient with all of us during the session and, having already received the unedited gallery of photos, got beautiful photos of us again. I cannot wait to see the final results and would recommend Céire to anyone looking to get newborn/family photos done.

The photographs we received for our daughters new born and first birthday shoot were nothing short of stunning. Ceire has a remarkable talent for capturing the most precious moments. What made our experience even more special was the patience and care Ceire showed during the session. These photos are treasures that we will cherish forever. I wholeheartedly recommend Ceire to anyone.

A big thank you to Ceire, for our baby’s newborn photoshoot! We are delighted with the 10 final images, which really capture the happiness of our family. Ceire dressed baby in the cutest outfits and gave us advice on where and how to position ourselves, and how to hold baby for the camera. The photographs are beautifully taken and edited. Ceire went the extra mile to soothe our baby whenever he was fussy and we learnt a few tips on how to calm him. I highly recommend this studio!
Wonderful experience this morning with Ceire for a baby photoshoot. She is very professional and her experience in this delicate area was apparent throughout. There was no issue with changing and feeds as they arose and Ceire kept the baby calm and relaxed throughout, which I can barely do myself! I would highly recommend her and reassure any parents that they are in great hands with Ceire.
