Family portrait to celebrate Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas – Tipperary professional photographers Ireland
February 10th, 2017

When Josephine & Laurence celebrated 40 years of marriage their 9 children knew what their mother always wanted a Ni Riain photography family portrait. They surprised them with the gift voucher for a wall portrait.

This contemporary style captures the connections in a family and the light coloured clothing helps to maximize the impact of the image that all the focus is on each family member.

After retiring from competitive dancing at the early age of 19 with 45 major titles under her belt, Michelle followed her dream of dancing all over the World as a Lead dancer and Choreographer touring not only European countries but also America, Australia and Asia. Michelle flew through her Dance exams to become a qualified teacher for An Coimisiun Le Rinci Gaelacha. The school now only open just over 3 years has spread from Cashel to Cahir, Clonmel, Dundrum, Fethard, Galbally, Golden, Littleton and Tipperary Town having many dancers winning 1st place at the mini Munster Championships in 2012 and 2013, Munster and All Ireland medalists the same years and Qualifiers for the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in LONDON this Easter.

Michelle’s partner Michael Fischer comes from Leipzig Germany. Michelle and Michael met on tour in Norway while Michelle danced the leading role and Michael lit the stage as the lighting designer and technician for the Irish Dance show. They toured for over 2 years together to countries such as Norway, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland and Russia before moving home to Ireland together to start a family. Their first baby daughter Elaina Lawrence Fischer was born on 11th February this year.

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.

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.

FREE Engagement Portrait when you book your wedding

Engagement portrait couple with calves Ni Riain photography ThurTo mark this couples recent engagement I wanted to create a unique portrait that the couple would treasure forever. They both come from Dairy Farms and I originally thought lets take the portrait on the farm with cows, however the Groom rightly pointed out that “calves were the future on any farm”. I wanted a casual relaxed fun image.

I presented it to the couple in a large cream mount – A signature board so all their guests could sign.

Newborn Portrait by Ni Riain Cassestown Thurles Co. Tipperary Ir
Dearest Sinéad,

What can I say, I saw the photo of my  beautiful baby on display today & I am one proud mama.
The impact of seeing that photo evoked such emotion of the precious moments of when Cathal was born. I find it truly inspirational that through your many years of expertise you were able to tell our story through our eyes and heart. As a family we are so grateful that you managed to capture for us that special moment in time. But most importantly the emotion of it which is resonant of the way you connect with people. Nobody  could have been as intuitive or professional.

Those photos will be treasured for years to come & take pride of place in the O’Reilly household.

“Time in a Frame” – Celebrating 20 years in Business Ni Riain Photography
February 2nd, 2013

Time in a Frame 2013


The mother of these teenagers has brought them in every 5 years over a 15 year period. When they walked into the studio in January 2013 I was taken aback at how grown up they had all got. Her beautiful daughter Erin was now taller than me! Her babies were teenagers. We reckoned the next time in 2018 the two boys would be 6ft’ers.

Time in a frame 2002


These portraits were each taken 5 years apart and you realise babies and young toddlers are for a limited time only – suddenly they are teenagers and portraits are the reminders of those fleeting moments of time – “Time in a Frame”.
