A Satisfying day with Sam McCauley’s…

IMG_9999

A very busy day at St Aiden’s Hall in Bunclody today, but very satisfying too. I got a lot of lovely photos and we had a good bit of dress up fun along the way.

A big thank you to the lovely Niamh for all the help she gave me during the day.

Here is a small sample of the images taken today, the The Sam McCauley’s photo-shoot was so successful we are already talking of doing another!

A day after the Communion…

Eileen asked me a month ago, to take photos at her son’s communion, but as I had already committed to another client for the Bennekerry communions on the 10th May, it was out of the question, I only get one Saturday off work per month you see.

She contacted me again recently to see if I could manage the Sunday instead for a photo-shoot and this time I was available.

The photo-shoot was held at her home, and I found it far less stressful, and much more relaxed than trying to get everything done after the ceremony, at he church, when everyone just wants to leave and go back to whatever celebration has been organized. I think in future, this is the way to go…

Communions in Bennekerry

Saturday 10th May, and the weather was rotten. The dry weather we’ve had for the past month didn’t fool me, and I had been purchasing umbrellas at every opportunity. I chose plain but bight colours thinking I could make use of them as a feature of the photos if necessary.

I arrived at the St Mary’s Church at 11:30am plenty of time to scout the area, and get a few snaps of the church.

Just as the communion finished and everyone exited the church, the rain eased off and we had about half an hour of breezy dryness. Two of my clients for the day were photographed in the churchyard, before the rain began again in earnest.

A quick visit into the National School to finish up. This Link will take you to the full gallery: http://wp.me/P3XBcM-70

Only one of my umbrellas was used, and that was only for the effect! Were the others a waste of money? In Ireland, I very much doubt it. I’m sure I will have plenty of opportunity to use them the next time.

Ruth’s Photoshoot at Duckett’s Grove

Ruth

I had a lot of fun on Friday afternoon. A camera and a pretty girl, what more can I say?

My young friend Ruth agreed to come with me to Duckett’s Grove in Carlow for a photo shoot. It was her first time modeling, and she was fantastic. She was a little nervous to begin with but it didn’t take long for her to relax and enjoy the experience.

Thie photo above is my personal favourite. I had made a comment to her about the way she was looking at me, her forehead had wrinkled up slightly. She found this hilarious, and I got the most natural shot of her laughter. Totally spontaneous and easily the best of all of them.
