Two cool dudes…

When I started photography, I declared I never wanted to be a portrait photographer. “Weddings are my thing” I used to say. I guess I had no children of my own at the time – and didn’t fancy studio work too much.

8 years on, that statement is a little ironic given the trophies sitting here on my desk! Thing is, I’m really enjoying doing portraiture! You get to meet such a wide range of interesting people. It’s almost like speed dating (without the romance) – you get introduced to people for a short time, have a laugh with them then we part company. It’s fun,relaxed. So there you go, I’m now also a portrait photographer and I love it!

I also realise I don’t blog many portraits. I guess its more difficult to get permission etc with kids, but I’ll try to post a few more. Today let me introduce you to Tiernan and Odhrin. Two of the coolest little dudes. Was delighted that there mum wanted something a wee bit different!

I really love this photo of them looking at each other. Brotherly love 🙂

Oh, love this next one too:

Definitely a cute baby:

I always knew having a studio in an industrial estate would be handy. Red shutters!

For the last 2 months we have had road works right outside our door. They’ve gone now, but I’m told they are returning…
Anyway, I was determined to do something with all the signs etc – but just never got round to it. Tiernan gladly obliged :-). This photo is the only good thing to come of weeks of cleaning dust out of this studio!

And finally – kinda like this one:

Little George

Last week we had the pleasure of welcoming George and his favourite duck into the studio. I’d always designed the studio so I could use the wooden floor and wall as a natural background – but just hadn’t tried it out. So this was a first – and George was a great subject!

A few baby pictures…

We recently had Louise and her little girl into our studio. She might be the youngest baby in the studio yet – here’s a few pictures…

Little Kaylee

Well the studio is in full swing now (and I haven’t got round to having the official opening – but I’m holding off until I get a nice big sign out the front!)…I also managed to do my weekly house sitting last week which went really well – wonder who will be next!

Anyway, last week I took some pictures of little Kaylee. She’s very cute – here are some of the photos! I’m kinda getting into a style for my studio work. I find a lot of studio work very flat, so I’ve tried to mix studio lighting with some nice depth of field…Kaylee’s mum was happy
to ditch the white backdrop for something a bit more low key – you can let me know what you think!

…and I’m saving my favourite to last:
