Hope everyone is keeping well wrapped up in this freezing weather :)

Never a truer word spoken!

And when she was good, she was very very good.
But when she was bad she was horrid"

snow, weddings and an adorable church

Friday was a disaster weather wise. Gale force winds, torrential rain, sleet, snow and ice. Like I said, disaster!! Saturday turned out to be a wonderful day, mostly dry and bright, only raining when we were inside (who can complain about that!). Michelle and Gavan, you guys are so lucky!

The church at Ballinahinch was one I have been dying to get into since I moved to Connemara, and I was not let down by it. Wow is all I can say, it was just adorable! The church was solely lit by candles and the atmosphere in there was outstanding. Have to say, it is my favourite church by far now. The hotel too was fabulous, and those blazing fires were appreciated by everyone I think!

So here's a little sneak peek at some of the photos from the day. I'm still working my way through them all, but these have been some of my favourites so far from throughout the day.

Iain and Mary

I had the wonderful pleasure of photographing Iain and Mary's wedding last weekend in the stunning location of Tuam Cathedral. Storm's were forecast for the day but I was greeted by clear blue skies as I drove into Tuam and thankfully they stayed until just as we finished doing our portraits outside after the ceremony, phew!! I hope you the rest of your day went wonderfully for you.

I'm still working on the photos but as promised here's a sneak peek for you!

monday, funday

Last Monday I had the great pleasure of visiting the J family to take some portraits for them. It was Summer 2007 when we had last met for portraits, between then and now K has turned into such a big girl and baby C has joined the family. Poor little C had a tooth coming up and was apparently feeling less than delighted all morning before I arrived but he was a great little man and was full of smiles and giggles for me!

The Beach

I have to say, we are really lucky with where we live. A beautiful mountain and lake right behind our house, a little harbour only a 3 minute walk away and an amazing beach that goes on forever is but a 10 minute drive from us. Since we got Mia it has been in our plans to take her to the beach, we knew she'd love it (and I knew I'd love it too!!) Finally the time came 2 weeks ago, we loaded Mia into the trailer and headed for the beach. She was such a good girl while we were there, though she was a little apprehensive. I knew the second time would be better.

We went back to the beach with her again this Sunday, and boy was the second time a million times better!! We didn't go near the water the first time we went so we decided we'd do it this time. At first she wouldn't have anything to do with it, she wouldn't even walk through the shallowest of puddles, so Peadar put on his wellingtons and walked out into the water, after a moment of hesitation Mia followed. And that's when it got really wet and really fun! She had a great time, and had myself and Peadar in knots laughing!!

We're all very much looking forward to going back and getting soaked again! next time I think I'll bring a towel!


PS Thanks to Peadar for taking these great photos of myself and Mia, they are ones that will be cherished for years to come :)
