As well as owning Heyday Studios, we are first and foremost good friends.

We offer our clients the best studio experience possible and the best images to treasure whether it is a photographic print, wall art or painting.
Bridget Lambert, Photographer
Bridget joined the HeydayTeam in Summer 2021 as a photographer with many years experience. Her technical ability and quality of her work was a given but what is important to us is that Bridget is also a friend.
I am a Sligo girl who has made Portlaoise her home. I took an unusual route to photography. For many years I was a Nurse specialising in Intellectual Disability. I took at career break and since then photography has become my full time passion and career.
I love that photography allows me to be creative and provided a real service to people. One of my favourite moments is seeing the look on parents faces when they return to view the images of their newborn or family photographs.
I am an Artist and an art facilitator. While I have always painted, like Ciara my career started somewhere else.
I worked in industry for many years and then as a personal and business coach. I went back to college and did various courses in art.
My art which can be with paint and brushes or a camera (or both together!). I love experimenting with different media and exploring all types of arts.
The other part of my work life is not as exiting but very necessary... admin and accounts!!
I am a proud Dublin woman. I moved with my family to Laois in January 2021. I have more than 10 years experience as a photographer. I have known Ciara for years and I'm an absolutely delighted to be part of the Heyday Studios Team. I specialise in Newborn and Family photography. I am known for my patience, which I attribute to being a mother of six. I love children and capturing beautiful images of babies and families.

"I cannot recommend Heyday Studios enough. From start to finish Ciara and Pauline put us at ease and my little one Emily was so relaxed throughout the session. As they said themselves when we met the sessions are completely baby led and baby dictates how session will go nothing is forced and this could not be more true. We got absolutely beautiful photos both awake and asleep and the results were more than we could have hoped for. Cannot wait to return for her sitter session at the end of the year!"

"Would recommend Pauline and Ciara to anyone, very professional and the pictures are just fabulous. Both are brilliant with making both baby and mother feel comfortable and don't try to force anything. They let the baby express and make moves that the baby feels comfortable with. Even before going into the photoshot a lovely welcoming sign was placed, I thought this was very thoughtful. I am over the moon with my pictures and can not thank either of ye enough."
