I’m Mary and I am a newborn / children and family outdoor and studio natural light photographer and first launched Keepsake Photography NI in 2011, I am also full time mummy and absolutely adore my job.
Keepsake Photography NI Studio is based in Maghera and all outdoor shoots are located in Upperlands where I love to shoot naturally among the trees where children are at best themselves and to capture their personalities rather than forced smiles is always my goal.
With family photography, parents sometimes express worry about their children’s ability to cope with a photo-shoot.
Well, I have dealt with the shy ones, the grumpy ones, the hyperactive ones, the tiny ones, the teenage ones and many more using patience, making a fool of myself or occasionally bribery but we always get there in the end!
My main aim as a photographer is to truly capture the character of the person or people I’m photographing. Together we will create images which are full of personality, lit with beautiful, natural light!
