What to Expect
From the first phone call to delivery of your final products, when you book a portrait session with DOK Photography, my focus is on creating not only beautiful, timeless family portraits, but also a luxury and hassle free experience from start to finish. Every finished portrait is hand-edited to perfection and printed on the highest quality materials available, designed to last a lifetime and beyond.
How it Works
Every session starts with a phone call. Call me on 01 848 1698 or use the contact form to get in touch and I'll call you to talk about your family and your goals for your portrait session. We'll also talk about session style, timings and options to see which products and services are just right for you.
Your photoshoot can take place outdoors, at your home or in studio, depending on the style of photography you prefer. After the session, you'll be invited back to view all of your images, choose your favourites and decide what you'd like to do with them. In some cases, we can do this right after the session too!
When it comes to portrait display, you can choose from matted prints, framed portraits or my signature albums.
All products come with a matching digital file so you have the flexibility to add your images to your devices or make additional prints for family and friends.
All products are delivered free of charge and our wall art even comes with complimentary installation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where does the session take place?
The session can take place outdoors on location, in your home or in our studio in Raheny.
How much are your packages?
Everything that I do is custom designed for you, including my collections, prints and portraits. My session fee is €200 which includes planning your session, the session itself, and your viewing appointment. Products are all sold separately with prices starting at €200. All of my prints are heirloom quality, printed with the finest available papers and inks. This is custom art, designed for your home and is intended to last for generations. Photographs increase in importance and value with time so I only work with the very best quality providers for my prints, frames and collections.
Do you sell digital images?
The focus of my work is not just to take soulful portraits of your family, but also to get them printed in an archival format that's designed to last so you can see enjoy them every day. For this reason, I don't offer files on their own. However, I do include a matching digtial copy with any printed portrait.
How many pictures will I get?
As each session is custom designed, the amount of images that you will see in your reveal session varies. There is no minimum purchase so you can choose to take one perfect portrait or you can choose them all! What you decide to do with your portraits is up to you. I help and guide you through the process to make it hassle free and ensure that you only take home what you truly love.
When should I book with you?
For newborn session, try to book several weeks before your baby is due. If you baby has been born already, please call us as soon as possible as ideally, we will photograph your baby in their first few weeks of life. For older baby or family sessions, three weeks is enough time in advance to book for midweek sessions or a month for weekend sessions.
How long does it take to get my order?
All good things... Most of my suppliers are in Italy and are hand finished, so a lot of time is invested into ensuring that each portrait is absolutely perfect. Depending on what you order, turn around time is between 6 and 8 weeks, however, I can supply your digital copies within two weeks if you would like them in advance of your printed products.
