For a couple of hours we want you to relax, have fun and spend time with the ones you love. We’ll be there to document this very special time and to create art that will remind you forever of how much you love one another.
Our aim is to capture the love and the bond that you have for your little (and not so little) ones. We want to help tell the story of your family love. We’re all in so much of a rush these days that we rarely get time to just be with the ones we love. There’s always some distraction, some worry, the feeling that there’s something else we should be doing.
Looking back, 2003 was a huge year for us. Having lived & worked in Hong Kong for 6 years, we left our corporate jobs to travel to Australia, in search of a new way of living. We studied photography and worked with some amazing Australian photographers. To top it off, we got engaged and then married a couple of months later on a mountain top on the South Island of New Zealand. We said to each other that it was ‘now or never’ and we moved back to Ireland to begin our new lives as photographers!
Our photography business and life has changed significantly over the past 12 years. We spent the few years printing our art on canvas and selling our creations from Cow’s Lane Market. Friends then started asking us to photograph their weddings, hence Allegria Photography was born and we spent the following 7 years capturing peoples’ love on their wedding day. However, the most significant change came 7 years ago when our little boy Oisín was born.
Our little boy Oisín had a very rocky start in life which was quite a life changing experience for us. To have something so precious nearly taken away from you makes you realise what really matters. It makes you appreciate the little things, the seemingly insignificant moments that make up our lives.
Oisin is doing really well now and he is so full of love for everyone. Our journey with him made us realise that photographing a family’s love was what we wanted to do. As a result, we rebranded 2 years ago as And Baby Makes Three to help families record the love they have for one another and to document the very special moments which are all too fleeting.
We would love to chat to you about how we can work together to tell your story. We are based in Sandycove, Co. Dublin and we travel to homes and locations around Dublin and surrounding counties. You can get in touch using the contact us page or by emailing us at email@example.com or if you fancy having a chat you can call us on 087 281 1067.
We look forward to capturing your family’s story of love.
