ISPCC

The ISPCC helps hundreds of thousands of children and young adults throughout Ireland every year with a range of unique and independent support services. We help children who are being abused, bullied or neglected; children who are confused, sad, or who badly need a friendly voice.
Childline is the ISPCC’s free, nationwide helpline dedicated to children and young adults who can contact us 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and talk to a volunteer who is trained to listen and understand. In the last 25 years Childline has answered over 5 million calls from children in real need.
Through our community based support programmes ISPCC Counsellors and Mentors work with over 1500 individual children and their families nationwide each year to address behavioural and emotional concerns and to prevent issues such as social isolation and early school leaving.
In 2014 the ISPCC marks 125 years protecting children in Ireland and we are delighted to partner with the IPPA’s National Portrait Day whose support can ensure that we continue to make a real and lasting difference.
No matter the extent of your support it will make a big impact on our services. For example for every €25 picture taken during National Portrait Day the ISPCC will be able to answer 5 calls to Childline. That’s five children who will be listened to because of you, thank you.

Ireland Equine Horse pony photographer Ni Riain Photography Thur

This was an equine commission from Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show of sisters Charolette and Sarah Jane with their beautiful horses at their home. The girls were fantastic to work with. We had glorious evening light. When I arrived the girls were wearing beautiful blue dresses, the opposite in the colour wheel to brown is blue. It was a great fun session for me and we even took a few family photos with the girls parents & brother as well.

The girls Mum helped behind the scenes at the session.  You can imagine how much work goes into cleaning tack, clipping and washing horses for a photo session:)

I used my signature studio lighting to enhance the conformation of the horses
