Let the summer begin!

In the morning, very early,
That’s the time I love to go
Barefoot where the fern grows curly
And the grass is cool between each toe,
On a summer morning ~ Rachel Field

The photography world has been busy for me lately - and finally being able to go outside in the fresh air with the sun shining and bare feet running about always makes me smile. How could you not smile with these happy children - cousins delighted to see each other and a garden to play about in. What more could you ask for?
Still as cute and full of life as ever...
double trouble but triple the fun!

The gorgeous, adorable and spunky O'Connor clan

The fundamental job of a toddler is to rule the universe.
Lawrence Kutner

Two adorable children, two very easy going parents makes for one happy family. The O'Connor's drove all the way up from Dublin to come to the studio and what a pleasure it was to meet them - but whew, are they active! Playing peek a boo, jumping on cusions, climbing stools and of course battling over toys - Emma and Harry kept us all busy during this session, but what fun too. Not a quiet household here, I'm sure.

Do all Emma's have such big personalities?
Just LOVE that cheeky grin!
A gorgeous family all around..
Happy and full of life - THAT is what all children should be
It was lovely to meet yopu all - thank you for coming up to see me!

My Sweet One Year Old, Ben

To become a mother is one of life’s greatest blessings. It is a lifelong event that forever changes you. Becoming a mother changes your heart, your thoughts, and your actions. However, you may soon wish you had a few extra hands. And I certainly wish I did have more hands...Wow, 3 is busy! But how lucky I am to have this gorgeous, sweet, happy little boy in my life. I just cannot believe a year has passed since Ben was born. Each morning, he actually looks older than the last. SLOW DOWN!!! I was on a much needed holiday over Ben's big day, but thankfully he didn't really mind - he was showered with love and celebrations with his cousins and family in Kerry. Look at these cheeks...I could kiss them all day - if he would only sit still long enough!
My Sweet, smiling, baby boy Ben - into everything and making life even more crazy than it already was - and I wouldn;t change it for the world!
Happy 1 year Ben - you light up my every day

Boys will be boys

“One of the best things in the world to be is a boy; it requires no experience, but needs some practice to be a good one"

Having both a daughter and two sons has helped me to realize the complete difference between boys and girls even before they are born! My son can't help but throw, bash and stomp things. He finds dirt, scrapes and mischief without even looking for it. He is happiest outside, can easily entertain himself and loves cars, trucks and superheroes. We have not put this upon him - this is within him. But along with this, he is more sensitive than my daughter and gives me more cuddles. He tells me daily that he loves me of his own free will and speaks as though everyone he meets is his friend. Boys are fabulous!

So, I was thrilled to meet this adorable boy. The "cool as a cucumber" Ty O'Neill. Mum and I worked our buts off to produce the smiles - but he was far too cool for our silliness! Oh, but how could you resist such an absolutely GORGEOUS boy?

Millennium Photo Evening

You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself.
Galileo Galilei

I always enjoy meeting the new families at different schools in the area, but it is equally fabulous to take photos of the children in my school. The photo evening at Millennium brought in some gorgeous children and an opportunity to have a bit of fun with them different from our everyday teaching. And how adorable are these kiddos!?!
