It has been an age since I blogged !! So this definitely seemed like the right time to remedy that !!
This beautiful session happened in my little studio and I couldn't be more delighted with it. Its a style of session that I have always loved doing and I think its time that I introduced it as a choice.
This session is, beautiful, natural, clean, light and airy. Its your new little family interacting with eachother in a relaxed comfy environment. It captures pure emotion and interactions and all those little details. There is no formal posing, its not needed for this session. Its as if this session were happening at home, without the hassle of cleaning up ;) We all know how full the house is after the arrival of a newborn so here is a session where you don't need to worry about any of that !
See for your self how Daisy and her family got on !! I have had the pleasure of doing older brother Harry and older sister Scarlett's newborn session so I thought it would be nice to do something different this time for this lovely family.
Scroll down to take a closer look at all the images.
The other beauty of this session is that it is not a tied to age as a typical Newborn Session is. This session can happen at any stage really up to about 3 months ! So if you've missed the new Newborn time this is your chance to capture your sweet new babe :)
If you think this session is for you contact me and I can schedule you in.
Pricing for this session is the same as my regular Newborn Sessions and that can be found here
So its that time of year when we all take stock of the year gone by. And what a year it was, lots of fab babies in the studio but I was also blessed with some fab weddings !! I'll be bloging a few over the next few weeks to give you an idea of what I was up too.
First up was my very own cousin Alan and his fab, now wife Laura. It was a wonderful mix of Irish and Spanish tradition, held in the gardens of the Glenview Hotel Wicklow. It was nothing short of perfect !!! And I got to boogie the night away after with my family. What more could a girl ask for :)
I love to watch my families grow !!
A gorgeous wee man, awake for his whole session, but it didn't matter a bit. He was as calm as you like and gave me such lovely eye contact shots. In my book they are some of my favourite ones :)
More often than not its a Wedding that I share here on my blog so from now on I'll be sharing more Newborns too.
First up a short video compilation of a beautiful little lady from today .......
So I have just realised how far behind on blogging I am !! I will remedy that over the next few weeks as I have lots of lovely weddings to show you from the end of last year !!
First up are the wonderful nuptuals of Beverly & Stephen, in the FANTASTIC surroundings of Crom Castle in Fermanagh. The cermony took place in 'The West Wing' and my goodness what a wow location !! I couldn't believe my eyes when we got there, a photographers dream venue !
Beverly is actually my most organised Bride EVER, she booked me a full 2 years and 1 month in advance. Now thats what I call organised !!! Love it !!!
Here are a few of my favourite images from the day.....
So I'm a bit behind on blogging at the moment, I'm right in the middle of crazy wedding season !! Not a bad complaint !!
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Marie & Kevins nuptuals, in the fabulously sunny village of Howth. The sun was splitting the stones as I arrived at Maries. This day was made extra sweet by the fact that the Chief Bridesmaid was an old friend, and there was plenty of girly squeals upon meeting, lol.
There are two words that spring to mind when I think back on Marie & Kevins day and they are 'totes emosh' !! It was an emotion filled say from start to finish, happy tears and some sad too. Also the other most remarkable thing was time keeping. Holy Lord, I have never met such an on time Bride before. Determined to be walking up the aisle on time, I think we even caught the priest on the hop !!
After the ceremony and a photo shoot on the 'fishing' pier we headed to the lovely surrounds of Castleknock Hotel. The sun kept its hat on and we had a lovely afternoon outside on the veranda before the call for dinner. A fab day, definitely one to remember.
Here are some of my favourite images from the day !
It seemed like a lifetime to go when Susan contacted me about her wedding to Alan, well my goodness it flew around, it happened yesterday. it always catches me on th hop, how quick names and stories come around again from the time of booking to the time of well doing !! There were to be a few familiar faces in the crowd at Sue and Alans wedding so I was looking forward to this one.
The weather Gods, thank goodness were on my side again yesterday. That lovely bit of cloud cover and mild and dry, score us !!
My phtographer buddy Ciara Drennan was covering the boys prep in Kilnamanagh and I headed to Rathangan to catch up with the ladies. All was in full swing with favour finishing, photoboard making and all sorts thrown into the bridal preparations. A little later than planned, ahem..... we headed for the picturesque Lady Chapel in Maynooth. Wow, it was my first time to shoot there, it had been on my list for a while, it didn't disappoint. Such a gorgeous little church, steeped in history and so romantic. Suited our couple very well.
After the ceremony we held a quick Family Photo Session as there was a bit of a drive ahead of us to the fab Tulfarris Hotel & Golf Resort, and people tend to scatter to the four winds once there are check-ins involved. Better to have them done and save everyone stress and precious reception time in the long run. A slight shower on our way over didn't dampen anyones optimism and we had a lovely Bridal shoot in the Manor House and the grounds of the Golf Course itself. I love shooting in Tulfarris, so many great locations and opportunities, its different every time.
Everyone was being well catered for back at the reception when we arrived back in our golf buggy. All the children (Groom and Best Man !!),loved it, they even gave the flower girls and page boys a little go !
With formalities over after the lovely short speeches, everyone was tucking into what looked and smelt like a fab evening meal as I took my leave. I hope you guys partied late into the night and had a ball !
Here are some of my favourite images from the day.
Last Fridays wedding was such a treat for me, the Bride was getting ready 5 mins drive from me, the church one of my local parish churches and the hotel a 20 minute drive also. My Bride, Rhona was also super relaxed, which is always a major bonus and allows me to enjoy the day along with the couple.
St. Marys Church in Saggart has just recently gone through a major refurbishment with the roof being replaced. So it was in great shape for the ceremony. The weather gods were also looking like they were playing ball so we headed to Dunboyne Castle Hotel so as not to waste any time in getting all the outside photography completed.
Dunboyne Castle had their usual warm welcome awaiting Rhona and Kevin with bubbly and sambos for the hungry family members. We completed the family portraits on the steps of the old house before heading out into the gardens with the Bridal Party. We were done and dusted in no time at all and everyone could head back in to enjoy the hospitality and chat before dinner. Children were on their best behaviour as there were a lot of teachers floating round among the guests ;)
