About Emma…

 

About Emma ImageOriginally from Kendal in the Lake District over the water in the UK, I moved to Ireland for love and fell in love with Ireland itself. I love good food, talking, travelling and red wine but none quite as much as photography! My husband, Patrick, would tell you about the many hours spent hanging around for that special moment or perfect light. As a mother of two I know how important (and difficult) it is to capture their little personalities as they grow and change. Having worked with photographing tiny tots and families for many years I adore seeing and capturing their expressions, quirks and individual personalities, whether that be a screaming, dribbling, teething toddler or a cool, moody, grumpy teenager. That’s the beauty of the portrait, it’s individual, personal and just yours.

 

My Professional Background…

I finished a BA Hons degree in Photography and Visual Communication before joining a leading chain of studios in the UK where I honed my skills for 2 years before Patrick and I spent a year travelling, me with my camera permanently in my hand. I then moved to Dublin and returned to the same studio group where I saw my talents rewarded with two photographic awards. I worked hard to become the group’s Style Director in Ireland, where I recruited, trained and managed a team of portrait photographers for 5 years. After the closure of these studios during the recession I launched Emma Hollingsworth Photography and haven’t looked back since.
