A photographer in heart, mind & soul, I couldn’t love my career more. I’ve lived in the Moy between Armagh & Dungannon for over 2 years now but I used to live in Newry where I had my own full-time photographic studio. Delighted to have our new natural light portrait studio in the Linen Green, right in the middle of Northern Ireland, I use daylight & a soft focus to capture dreamy photos of families throughout NI.
Weddings have always had a place in my heart and newborns/toddlers are not only sleepy & cuddly but full of fun, laughter, excitement and totally unpredictable! I am so grateful for every little smile and every little moment I get to capture. Life is always changing and never so beautiful as when it is just beginning.
Take a camera anywhere and you’ll never get bored. That is what I teach my photography students, because no matter where we go or what we photograph, even if it’s the same people or location we’ve seen before,
What I most love is watching families grow! Photographing your wedding is only the start of your story, and then if I’m lucky enough to see you back again with your own babies, photographing your family as it forms is the real icing on the cake as your photographer! I love what I do and capturing forever what changes in only days is a rare challenge, privilege and always a complete bliss to me – Kat x
UPDATED OPENING HOURS:

If coming from the Dungannon direction, head towards the M1, then turn right opposite the Swifts Football Club after the BP garage on the Moy Road.
Once you turn onto Main Road, you’ll go down hill and see the Linen Green complex on the right. Turn into the entrance and you’ll see a cobblestone roundabout. Turn right and we are in the building far off to your right-hand side. You’ll see PWC beside us with a large glass front. We are on the very left of that building and our door is on the side. You need to ring the doorbell and wait for us to open it for you, then you’ll be able to take a lift up to the first floor where our Linen Green studio is located.
For my own wedding in June 2017, I hired my favourite photographer to come to the service and take photographs of my husband and I in a nearby scenic location afterward with our family, friends, bridal party and of course, on our own. It was wonderful! I hired a duo team of videographers to video the whole day from start to finish and make me a 30-minute highlight reel as well as the full set of speeches so we really missed nothing and we have stunning portraits on our walls and in our album from our photographer. It meant we could get on and enjoy our day and make memories to really treasure and believe me, it worked out magical.
My photography takes a natural approach to capturing the beauty and innocence of your newborn & toddler as well as your family in our studio, your own home or out on your location-based portrait.
Children certainly don’t stay little for long and that is why it is my true passion to capture the first years of your baby’s life for you and your family to treasure for many years to come.

Ultimately we will be big, bright and meadow based but for now, we have our beautiful, natural light studio in the Linen Green designer shopping village in Moygashel, between Moy & Dungannon and minutes from the M1. Our little studio is just the perfect venue to slow things down and enjoy the quiet little moments your baby brings.
Book a free fact-finding consultation and let me give you and your family a very warm welcome to the Daisies & Buttercups Photography studio here in the Linen Green, Moygashel.

A real photographer in the making, her photographs are honestly better than mine at times and she is just recently turned 16.
