Professional Headshot With An Award Winning Portrait Photographer In Waterford

Are you looking for a professional headshot in Waterford or Kilkenny County?

Would you like a photographer that will capture your personality, friendly approach and professionalism at the same time?

Are you bored of the same old ‘stand here, smile and snap’?



You can contact Bara here, by phone at 087 97 48 548, email at or by message on Facebook. She will reply to you within 24 hours and schedule a phone conversation to answer all your questions.


Once you book your shoot you will be invited into the studio for complimentary planning session. You’ll mainly discuss your vision and ideas, wardrobe styling, hair and make up and look at different packages that will suit you most. After this, you will be fully prepared for your shoot and have an understanding of the investment involved.


Your photo shoot starts as soon as you step into the studio. A professional beautician and hair stylist will take care of you and while you are being pampered, Bara will prepare the set. During the two hours of your photo-shoot you will change several poses and outfits but don’t worry about it, Bara will guide you and make sure you look your best with a few easy tricks. At the end you will go home feeling and looking beautiful and filled with new emotions about yourself.


About two weeks after your shoot, you will return for your Portrait Viewing & Ordering appointment, where you will see your ideas from the planning session come alive.


I would highly recommend Bara to capture all those treasured memories. I have been with Bara twice, first time for our family portrait, and more recently for a headshot. Each time, Bara made the whole experience from beginning to end so special . She was so professional, generous with her time and has such an eye for detail. Bara has an amazing talent of making you feel at ease, and bringing out 'the best you' in the photos. The results were amazing and those images will be treasured for years to come. Thanks Bara.

Bara, I can’t thank you enough for the fantastic experience I encountered when hiring you to shoot my corporate headshot. I am so grateful to you that I now have five very professional photos to promote different aspects of my business. Before the photoshoot, Bara took the time to discuss my vision and then gave me lots of useful tips to ensure I was fully prepared for the shoot. She made feel like I was a celebrity. The day of the shoot I was given a complete makeover by Bara’s Hair & Makeup Artist. I have to say that I crawled into the studio feeling like a caterpillar and flew out like a butterfly. Bara has a natural way of making you feel relaxed to capture the “best you”! She is a true professional who is very skilled at what she does; I have yet to meet anyone that provides the experience and the results that she delivers. I can’t highly recommend her enough and I look forward to returning with my family for our family shoot. Keeping doing what you are doing, you are truly gifted!

I was looking for a portrait photographer in Waterford for some time. I loved every second of my headshot photoshoot with Bara Alich Photography. She listened to what I wanted in my photos and what I didn't. She made me feel so comfortable posing for photos by posing with me. She guided me through the whole photo shoot, from what way I smiled, to what way I held my body. She would boost your confidence by bringing out your best features and focusing in on them. I never felt rushed or under pressure. She uses only natural lighting which makes her pictures soft and have a unique feel to them. I would highly recommend Bara whether its for a professional headshot, or just a confidence boost, shell make you look and feel amazing.

After seeing some of her previous work in a local charity calendar (for the Solas Centre), I contacted Bara about creating a professional headshot for my first book. On the phone, Bara was the epitome of professionalism: courteous and asking all the right questions. In this first conversation, I was also pleasantly surprised that Bara wasn't rushing me at all. She took plenty of time to find out what I was looking for. This impression was reinforced in all our subsequent dealings. I was a newbie to photoshoots and needed a lot of guidance! Bara took me painstakingly through all the stages involved: detailed sit-down meeting (during which she supplied me with home-made honey, ginger and lemon tea for my cold!), selection of outfit and jewellery, the photo session itself, and the 'reveal' meeting a few days later where I got to see all the photos Bara had taken and select the ones I wanted. The photo studio that Bara uses in her home is a nicely appointed, relaxing area to spend time. There is even a small extra room where Bara's make-up artist (yes, there is one!) gets clients camera-ready. I am delighted with the final product. It is now displayed proudly on the back of my first published book. I can't recommend Bara and her services highly enough. She is a fantastic portrait photographer in Waterford.

Couldn’t recommend Bara enough. She did some lovely corporate headshots for me and will do exactly what you want. She even provides hair and make up for you too. She’s very professional and she makes you feel very comfortable!
