• About Dermot Murphy Photography

    You know your family better than anyone, and it’s important to you that they feel relaxed and totally at ease with whom you choose to photograph them.


    You’re looking for a friendly photographer with a studio that’ feels like you're at home, instead of intimidating, where they’ll be able to have fun and be themselves in front of the camera because you know those are the times when they produce the most adorable and treasured portraits.


    We are Dermot & Catherine Murphy, a husband and wife team with four children of our own and we like to think we know a thing or two about what it takes to create a great photograph. We are also great pet lovers with our dog (Honey) and two cats (Tom & Katie) sharing our hectic family life!


    We are seven-time Professional Photography Association of Northern Ireland Award Winners including the Northern Ireland Photographer of the Year Trophy.

    We LOVE what we do and our PASSION shines through.

    We met each other when we were 16 and 17 and have been together ever since. We like to think we complement each other. Dermot’s a bit of a perfectionist with a love for new technology. Catherine's career has always revolved around people. She started her career as a nurse before running her own Children's Daycare Nursery. We both love to learn a little bit about our clients, so we can understand their family chemistry and give them exactly what they want. We are highly experienced dealing with babies and children having had four of our own, two boys and two girls. We also have a dog, two cats, and a hamster! Can be a bit busy around our home! We feel that our experience over the years working with all kinds of people, making them feel at ease when getting photographed, helps to make our photography unique.

    Whether it's a delicate Newborn Photography session or giggle-filled Family Photography session we work together to create a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Children walk away feeling like they’ve just been on a play date, and that's the secret as to how we capture those natural moments of families just being themselves. We love what we do, and that passion shines through in our photography.

    Meet our family :)

    We love to capture original images that totally capture your family’s individual story. As parents of four children ourselves, tow boys and two girls (Yes that's them pictured we seen and loved the golden curls, pouty lips, sweet giggles, and silly faces that all parents love. Those special moments we all want to remember, like a father, gently holding his newborn baby girl in his arms, her small tiny hand clasped tightly around his manly finger. The loving gaze between parent and child as they grip hands and laugh together. Life is filled with tiny moments like these, and our passion is to capture them as beautiful works of art so you remember
