Creativity has always been at the core of Shauna’s career choice.
From fashion and interiors design to engineering design and photography, Shauna’s roots have always been firmly in the creative realm. After studying fashion design in LCAD, interior design in Griffith College, and finally, photography in Limerick Senior College, Shauna found her professional home with the camera, hosting her first solo Black & White Photographic exhibition, ‘Limerick you are a Lady” in The Hunt Museum in 2004. After its unprecedented success, Shauna decided to follow her passion full-time…and Morning Star Photography was born.
In 2008 Shauna opened Morning Star Studio which is located in Ballyneety.

“It’s a renovated barn. It’s wonderful space and has great energy which, in turn, helps create beautiful images. Having been a shy child, Shauna understands the importance of positive energy and what it takes to feel comfortable in unfamiliar environments. She knows that when you give time and support to someone, they will eventually shine in front of the camera”
“I discovered my love for photography as a kid roaming the countryside of Athlacca – I always had a camera in my hand. I’m very lucky to have found my passion. To get the chance to work with that every day is enormously gratifying.”
My work, my love
“Photography for me isn’t about simply capturing an image. It’s about working with the person to encourage their true personality to shine through, and when it does – with a smile, a laugh, a twinkle in the eye, a turn of the head – click. I’ve captured the moment. There’s no better feeling for me than that moment when I grasp the essence of a person.”
Something magical happens that second you capture the essence of a person – be it in a glimmer of the eye, or a turn of the head. That’s what great photography is all about – capturing the essence of you.
Morning Star Studio
When it comes to the big occasions in your life – your engagement, your anniversary, your child’s milestone celebrations – they come and go but memories last forever. Photographs provide the stepping stones for that trip down memory lane. Those special occasions we want to remember which photographs ensure we never forget. The excitement, the joy, the love. We help you relive those moments by capturing not just the occasion, but the feeling.
Photo sessions, for both individual and family portraits, usually last an hour.
We offer a large range of finishes, from black and white and colour prints, to sepia. In addition we offer a range of sizes. We also have lots of picture samples and a range of frames in-studio which provide a visual of what the finished product will look like hanging on your wall. We can also print your photos on canvas for an extra special finish.
