– ABOUT –
Let me express a warm welcome to you and your family to Daisies & Buttercups Newborn & Family Photography. My photography takes a natural approach to capturing the beauty and innocence of your newborn & toddler as well as your This is Us! family portrait.
They 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.
Daisies & Buttercups grow up in the meadows on Rea’s farm every year bringing springtime with them & adding colour to the fields. New to life & vibrant, just like your little baby when you first hold it in your arms, that is how the name came about for our little studio.
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 x

IN OUR HEARTS ”
– ABOUT KATHLEEN –
Recently married, I am the newly minted Mrs Brendan Rea. We’ve had such a wonderful few years and a real whirlwind of change this last 12 months. Brendan & I live on our farm with our dogs Lily & Dawn and our little cat Lucy. There are normally sandy boots in my hallway from beaches and forest parks and I love everything about the sea.
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.
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. No two babies are ever the same and even twins will have their own little intricacies and stories to tell. I love the details like their tiny hands & feet and the wonder in their faces.
Photographing their baby to toddler years for you and capturing forever what changes in only days is a rare privilege and complete bliss to me x

Catherine looks after clients on a Saturday as well as assisting me in the studio sessions that take place at the weekend. A real photographer in the making, her photographs are honestly better than mine at times and she is just recently turned 16. She will be a filmmaker on our sessions and film little bits of moving moments for your slideshows at your ordering session. She really knows how to capture that little magical snippet of you and your family sharing cuddles, laughter and having fun together.
– WE ARE HIRING –
We are looking for a part-time Junior Photographer who is bubbly, organised and fun. The JP is the lady/gentlemen who will answer your calls & emails, make you really nice tea & coffee, and be on hand to assist in your sessions. They are also the person who keeps the ship right way up by monitoring each client’s journey and managing the studio staff (including me!) to ensure we are all on time with our photography/ordering sessions and product deliveries. Over time, they will be trained to photograph & film alongside Kathleen in the studio.
We are looking for a bookkeeper to look over our accounts one morning every week. The right person will be able to work 3 mornings from home per month and come in on the last Friday of the month to do site-specific jobs like payroll. We expect this role to commence in the new year so please get in touch if you are interested in this post.
– LINEN GREEN STUDIO –
The Linen Green is a large shopping complex in Moygashel between the M1 and Dungannon. They have a wide variety of designer shops, cafes & restaurants, premier businesses & hair / beauty salons. Our photographic studio is in the newly refurbished Dye House, where the Linen which was produced at the old Linen Green mill was once washed & dyed. Daisies & Buttercups Photography’s new address is: First Floor, Unit 8, The Dye House, Linen Green, Moygashel, Dungannon, County Tyrone, BT71 7HB
OPENING HOURS: Tuesday – Saturday 9:30am – 5:30pm
*From Tuesday – Friday 9:30am – 1pm & Saturday all day the studio is open for walk-ins / in-person enquiries & order collections, however the studio is only open on Mondays, after 1pm Tuesday-Wednesday and Sundays for appointments only.
LOCATION – To find the Daisies & Buttercups Photography studio, if heading into Dungannon from the Armagh direction or M1 motorway (junction 15), take the Moy Road exit towards Dungannon at the motorway roundabout. The Linen Green is on the first road on your left after the roundabout. You’ll see signs for the Linen Green and a Land Rover garage, then a school all on your left before the turn on to the Main Road.
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.
