Newborn Photographer

Lidi Lima-Conlon is a Brazilian-born photographer living in Ireland. During her early work as a TV journalist, she became fascinated by the visual aspects of her work and storytelling through images. Shortly after moving to Ireland from her home country in 2008, she took a photography course that served as the springboard for her current career. She began photographing everything from weddings and events, to landscapes but soon realized her talents lay in photographing families and babies.

Since then Lidi has established her own studio, Newborns by Lidi. At the Irish Professional Photographer & Videographer of the Year Awards in 2021, Lidi won both the Chairman’s Award and the Newborn Photographer of the Year title. She also gives mentoring sessions and is an ambassador for DreambooksPro.
