Violin Concert...

Life is like playing a violin solo in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.~ Samuel Butler
The first violin concert of Emma and Jack's. They were nervous, excited and did brilliantly! I was so proud of them.
Emma was the first up to introduce her piece to the audience and play her solo of Twinkle Twinkle. She did fabulous!
Jack demonstrating excellent concentration
The group piece "pop goes the weasle" s3
Then up came Jack to introduce his piece "I'm a cheeky monkey" - that had the audience eating out of the palm of his hand...
 All thanks to their wonderful violin coach Aoife Cormacain. Well done all!

Trisha and Paul Houston

It's a beautiful night, We're looking for something dumb to do. Hey baby, I think I wanna marry you. Is it the look in your eyes, Or is it this dancing juice? Who cares baby, I think I wanna marry you.  ~Bruno Mars

What an absolutely beautiful wedding...every detail was seen to - from the fabulous sweetie table for the kids to the wonderful band to the gorgeous dresses for the girls and of course the devine Bride and Groom themselves.  It must have been the worst June day in the history of time - gale winds, cold and rain.  But that didn't stop Trisha and Paul from making their day perfect.  I really enjoyed myself and was overwhelmed by how welcoming and lovely these people were.  I was honoured to be a part of their special day.  I wish them all the best for their future.

 Braving the crazy weather on the beach...just fabulous!

A few nerves...a lot of love s2
 The lovely newlyweds

 Two very special little girls
And a little of Trisha's characther - what a girl! s5

The Little Flower, Blanaid

Blanaid - meaning little flower, and here is a gorgeous little flower. Blanaid was such a pleasure to photograph - not only because she is so absolutely gorgeous, but also because she was such a sweet little character - full of fun, mischief and happiness. Like flowers do, she has certainly brightened the lives of those around her, particularly her doting mum and dad! Thank you Sinead and Bernard for giving me the opportunity to capture such a precious period in your lives. It truly was a magical evening!

Fun in the Sun

Open your eyes the sky is full of butterflies The blossoms on the trees stir up the honey bees 
Spring makes my fever right ~Elvis Presley
And didn't Belfast have a burst of Summer in the Spring - and we all enjoyed it as much as we could.  The sun was shining and temperatures soared.  Everyone had a smile on their face and enjoyed the outdoors as much as possible. If Ireland had weather like this all the time, there would be no need to go abroad - it was just idyllic!  And now here is my gang enjoying the Fun in the Sun!
