It pays to be prepared.  I have a Product Shoot tomorrow and my client wants to Direct.  That’s an ideal situation for me because there are hundreds of small design decisions made in a shoot like this and I’d much prefer getting direct input from a client who knows what they want rather than finding out later that they wanted something else.

But this kind of stuff is time-consuming so I set up the lights and the supports this evening so we’re ready to go.

The mood board supplied features a lot of textured products in shiney containers shot from directly above.  So I looked around the office to see what I had like that.

Lovely crema there lads.

First Holy Communion 2017

Wow, First Holy Communion Sessions for 2017 are already booking up.

In particular we have very limited availability for 6th May 2017 and 20th May 2017 is practically full.  There are sessions available in the gallery for the other dates in May.

So give me a call if you have your Communion Date: 087 683 8511

Of course, you can still book a session for a different day – it’s lovely to come in on another day and spend a little more time on your photos.  The package pricing is the same.


Halloween Revisited

Our Halloween Dress Up raised a mighty €700 for our two chosen Charities: Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumin and the Ronald McDonald House.

Time has flown since last October’s Halloween Dress up and I just realised I didn’t get to post a follow-up as we ran through a very busy December and January.

A big Thank You to everyone who called by and took part.  We had great fun as always!!!


Halloween Dress Up for Crumlin 2015

Our fourth Annual Halloween Dress Up for Crumlin is on this Friday. 23rd October.

We’ll be here from 10:30 to 4pm with the Den all set up for anyone who wants to call in for a Free Photo.

So bring the kids in their Halloween Fancy Dress.  We can take some photos with the pumpkins and our cuddly pet spider and they’ll all get a print.  There’s no charge for the photos or the prints but we’ll be collecting for Crumlin Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House.


Autumn Family Portrait Special Offer

€50 Session Fee + 10% Discount on Prints and Storyboards

It’s a perfect time to get out and have a Family Photo Session: autumn is here and the woods look fantastic; it’s bright and still warm outside.

This October we’re offering special discounted rates on all session booked from now until the end of the mid-term break.

For €50 you get a full Family Session anywhere in the Cork.  We’re also offering a 10% Discount on the Gallery Price list for print orders placed at your viewing after your session.

There are many spots around Cork for great Outdoor Family Photo Sessions.  We’ve worked in Currabinny, Rostellan, Fota Gardens and even more suburban locations like Fitzgerald’s Park and the Japanese Gardens.  All we need is somewhere you can be free to relax and play and we can capture your family at their best.

You might also consider some of our great local beaches at this time of year: Myrtleville, Rocky Bay, Garretstown or the Dock Beach have all worked well for us in the past.

But if you have your own favourite spot that your family know well then why not get photos taken there.

Weekend sessions are available but with limited availability.  The promotion runs through to the end of the October Mid-term break so you can also schedule a session while the kids are off school (3rd November).

  • All work is covered by our normal terms and conditions of business

Bring on the Autumn

Family Photographs Outdoors
Don’t let the weather stop you

OK so the weather has taken a turn after one of the best summers we’ve had for years.  But don’t let that stop you getting out there and enjoying yourselves.

In fact it’s still pretty mild and there’s some dry weather forecast.  The woods are looking fab at the moment and there’s nothing kids like better than getting out there and enjoying the fresh air now that schools are back and we spend so much time indoors.

So it’s a great time to organise a Family Photography Session and we’re launching a new promotion to help you make the step and book your session this Autumn.  Watch this space for more details.

What to do about First Communion Photographs?

In order to help you plan your child’s First Holy Communion I’ve put together a couple of pages of info on the blog:

First Holy Communion Photographs for 2014 gives details of the services we offer on the day of the Communion: Studio Sessions, Home Sessions and Pictures at the Church

First Holy Communion Packages 2014  has information about the print packages we’ve put together for First Communion Photographs.  These are available to all sessions that we shoot for First Communions and Confirmations.

We generally offer the same range of services to Confirmation Services – please call to check our availability on your date.

Hopefully these are useful but if you need any more information please do not hesitate to call – 021 4293714 or email rob@roblambphoto.com

€30 Christmas Vouchers Now Available

Following the success of previous year’s Kris Kringle vouchers we’re making them available again this Christmas.

These are limited availability vouchers that give the gift of a full family session and a 5×7 print for just €30.

We’ve found that people coming back to us with these vouchers were all delighted to receive them – often they were thinking about getting a family session done but hadn’t gotten around to making the booking.

Our family sessions are unique, they are designed to be relaxed and fun and the images that come out are the gift that lasts a lifetime – so why not give the gift of bit of magic for Christmas.

Halloween Dress Up for Crumlin 2012

Friday 26th October, 11 to 3pm

We’ll be holding our Halloween Dress Up for Crumlin again this year next Friday 26th October.

Kids can come into the Gallery in Halloween Dress Up and get a Free Photo in our Festive Den.

We had a great time last year and we raised over €500 for Children’s Charities.  So this year we’re hoping to go even better with more kids getting to come in and experience the Den and hopefully as much raised again for Crumlin Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House.

We’ll be opening up around 11pm on Friday the 26th and we’re hoping that since it’s the last school day before Halloween there’ll be lots of kids in frightfully good costumes wandering the streets of Douglas.  They can come in and get their photo taken in the Den we’ll give them a free print.

If you weren’t here last year and you’re wondering what it’s all about, take a look at the gallery on Facebook for more of what we did last year.
