Love Stories

I have always loved photographing people.

During the last 10 years (maybe 11, kinda lost count) I’ve photographed a bit of Fashion, Show, Plays, Events, some Families a lot Portraits (which I’ve always known I loved)..

I think that now I am at that stage when you see babies everywhere (my facebook feed is full of babies πŸ˜‚) and you find them all so cute and you the see the love in their mother’s eyes when looking at them and you start to understand what motherhood is about and that there is love in even an everyday shower in the sink or in changing your baby’s nappy and making them feel comfortable and clean πŸ’š

These are some of the reasons why I am sooooo in love with Family Photography, I see a love story in every interaction and it just makes sense 😊

I love this session, Janelle is proud to be breastfeeding and wanted some memories for Reuben who going to be 1 this month πŸŽ‚

Janelle inspired me to start a new photography project:

Breastfeeding – An Act of Love

I’m really, really excited about it and will be talking about it on the next post βœ¨πŸ’«

Have a great Sunday 😘

Lunch Time As It Is

As a photographer, I’ve always liked to have control of the light, to pose the models, to try create scenes and make them “look real”.

That worked well for me for a long time.. the past few years I was just not 100% happy with my photos anymore, something was missing.. πŸ˜•

Until now.. I am discovering a whole new exciting world in documentary photography, life as it is is way more interesting than posed life.

So, my friend, who is a great cook (better than me at least hahahah) invited me for lunch at his place, and I decided to take my camera with me.. πŸ“Έ

While he was preparing our meal, I took some snaps, trying to not interfere so much on the way he was doing his thing and at the same time, to make him comfortable with a camera pointed at him..

I really like what we both did! 😍 My snaps of a lovely and real afternoon and his food (was delicious) πŸ˜‹

And some coffee after all that food 😊

It’s Ready.. And It’s Live! πŸ˜

I’ve been working on my new website for the last few weeks and I’m so happy I can finally say, it’s READY!! πŸ˜ƒ

I put a lot of time and love in it and some of my favourite photos 😊

I would love to get some feedback, positive, negative, any feedback is welcome!

So if you have a little time, please let me know your thoughts on the comments below.. or send me an email.. facebook message.. insta direct.. 😜

Floral Dress and Sis’ Sunnies

Megan saw this dress in a vintage shop and immediately fell in love with it! 😍 

The floral print is beautiful, very summery and its short sleeves let her show off her tattoos!

She bought it to wear with her fishnets and the shoes she treated herself to, after doing so well in her college exams! 😊

“My brother was moving to Scotland and I got this outfit for his going away party, but  the first time I wore it was actually for this photoshoot, as the party only happened a week later” πŸ˜‚

Her bracelet says “Megan” and is her baby bracelet, a gift her older sis gave her and she has been wearing it since she was only 2 weeks old 😲 It still fits her, I think that’s amazing!

And her sunnies are actually her younger sister’s (that by the way, will be here soon too) they swapped them because they decided their own would match the other’s outfit better! Typical sisters 😎

And you, what do you share with your sis?

A Nightgown as a Dress

Martha always wears what she likes and likes what she wears! πŸ˜‰

This is a nightgown, but she doesn’t care! What matters is that it looks really nice with her favourite skinny jeans!

She first wore it when she was moving house and hosting a house β€˜cooling’ party.

“It felt lovely swishing around the house topping up everyones prosecco in it!” 🍾

She loves red and when she wears red clothes and lipstick she gets loads of random passersby serenading her with “lady in red” and it makes her smile 😊

Now, this camera bag has to be the cutest thing ever! She saw it in a fashion magazine and specifically went on the hunt to get it πŸ“·

“It holds next to nothing and often turns upside down, spilling all my goods on the ground.. but who cares when it looks this cute!” 😍

A Sea Themed Outfit

Martha loves outfits that tell a story. She matched these pieces because they all have a “sea” element, the image of a boat on the necklace, a swan on the top and the mossy coloured dress underneath, that moves like murky water 🌊

The necklace was a gift from an old friend, it has a watch inside πŸ•”

The top was a present from her niece, she caught her admiring it, remembered and bought it for her for Christmas 🎁

The dress used to be her sister’s (the mother of that same niece who gave her the top). She likes to wear it as a β€˜skirt’ with tops over because it’s a bit too big for her to wear it as a dress πŸ‘—

She told me she wore this outfit to work a few weeks ago and a lot of people liked it 😍

The boots which are a bit scuffed at this stage bring some edge to an otherwise girly look and gives the outfit a hard and soft balance that Martha loves πŸ’š

Dancing and Fashion

Last week I photographed a person with a very unique style, Martha! And she picked really, really nice outfits 😍

Martha likes to wear makeup, skirts, dresses and heels almost every day, even if she is not going anywhere, she can buy a beautiful new dress and wear it that same day sitting at home πŸ‘—

 “I don’t believe in saving your best clothes for rare, special occasions”.

She bought this skirt for the Rose of Tralee Festival, when she was a participant a few years ago. She remembers wearing it to the circus, with a white corset and a little hat and feeling like a ringmaster herself! πŸŽͺ She loves its bright pink, the heavy fabric and the way it moves beautifully. 

“I think I’ll probably keep it forever”.

Martha has two passions in life: dancing and fashion! And her shirt encompasses them both, and although she is not usually a fan of patterns, she loves this one so much πŸ’™

“I think it’s the most beautiful pattern I’ve ever seen”.

She prefers to wear silver or white shoes to black as a neutral footwear choice. These sandals are perfect for her in the summer as she doesn’t like to show her Irish dancer’s not so beautiful toes πŸ˜‰

And her super cute bag was a great bargain! She fell for its colour and fluffy material. πŸ‘› And while it has a label, this doesn’t really matter for her, she prefers buying cheap things often and keep recycling her closet than spending a lot on designers products! 

I totally agree with her! Who doesn’t love a bargain?? 😁
