I don’t know about you, but I’m often behind the camera catching all the vacation fun. And though I’m trying to teach them, my kids just don’t quite have an eye for taking flattering photos of people.

So I end up with a very one-sided vacation story of my family in amazing places and maybe a few shots of me that are blurry, at a bad angle (hello double chins when shots are taken from below!), or just unflattering in so many ways.

This year we had a short bit of time near Dublin before leaving Ireland so I decided to make sure there would be some good, Christmas-card worthy photos of the entire family.

Family Vacation Portraits with Flytographer

Hiring a photographer in a distant city can be challenging – so I was really happy to learn about Flytographer, a network of local photographers across the globe.

Just so you know: I paid for our Flytographer session and was so impressed with the service that I became an affiliate. Your costs will not be higher if you use my links; your purchase helps support the costs of maintaining Ireland Family Vacations. Thank you!

Setting up our session was simple- I chose the city (Dublin), the photographer (Aoife), the package (60 minute Subtle Chronicler),  and sent in my request, including date, type of shoot, and a request for the photographer to come to Malahide- a village outside of Dublin.

Communication with Flytographer was terrific. All my emails were answered promptly and to say I was excited about the shoot was an understatement…

Not only was I excited about having family portraits done (it had been 7 years since our last family photos!) but were were doing our photo shoot on the west lawn of Malahide Castle!

Aoife met us at outside the visitor centre and was as fun and unique as her bio implied. The girls were instantly smitten! She had arrived early and had scouted out some spots for photos. We had a few ideas of our own, and together we created series of photos that show a sense of fun, love, and family.

My girls. Love how this shows the tween personality of my eldest and the fun fairy sprite of my youngest.
