Hi, I am Camila Lee

Updated: Feb 25

Nice to virtually meet you :)

I am a newborn and family photographer based in Clontarf, Dublin - Ireland.

My photo sessions can be at your home or at any special place you love!

I am originally from Rio de Janeiro - Brazil, and I've also lived in São Paulo and have moved to Ireland in 2014.

This is me when I was very, very little eating my favourite food, rice, beans and eggs 😋

My story with photography started 12 years ago when I was in Fashion College, in Belas Artes - São Paulo, I fell in love with Fashion Photography and decided to go the Photography path.

This was my very first Fashion Photography class, we were just playing around with the lights in the studio :D It was fun!

My first assistant job was at Vladi Fernandes' Fashion Photography Studio Casa de Moda, back in Brazil.

After that, I worked with the photographer Rachel Guedes, the founder of Projeto Família, and that was when I started photographing 😃 I used to photograph kids parties for her.

Then I became a photographer on cruise ships, my first contract was on the Disney Cruise Line - Disney Magic (and I loved it so much)!

Working on cruise ships was an amazing experience (and tough too) I learnt a looooot but the best part was that I got to see some amaaaazing places!

Then I went back to Brazil to start my own photography business:

(Oh, yes.. Camila Lee is my married name 😊 )

And I photographed a lot of portraits, shows, events and a bit of fashion.

My work changed so much over the years!

This was my first website (and I just found out that it is still online 😲

It only works on desktop though) Click on the photo to see!

And here is a little bit of my fashion work!

My photos are very natural with minimum posing and I love capturing candid moments and interactions of families' everyday moments 😍

My first Award Winning Photo:

Are you in love? Planning a romantic proposal? Your big day? Expecting a baby? Celebrating an important day or just a little moment?

I would love to tell your love story!

Would like to learn more about my sessions?

I wrote this blog post talking a little bit about how I work:
