Each year I get to meet, chat to & photograph so many wonderful mothers, I get to offer some advice & reassurance to new mothers & get advice myself from some not so new mothers !!
What I always hope to get is the connection & the love, to make some memories.
Unfortunately in the past year I said farewell to two wonderful mothers, taken way too early in life – as I stood watching slide shows of photos their families had put together I cried & smiled at the same time, so happy to see all the memories that had been captured, so many happy photos of a mum and her children.
Get in the photos with your children ladies, please, it is so important & then print those photos.

A few weeks ago I got to spend a morning taking photos of a gorgeous new business in Maynooth Co. Kildare – L’art Du Chocolat opened a Chocolate Bar serving delicious french pastries, hand made chocolates, yummy croque monsieur, freshly brewed coffee and of course the best hot chocolate !
We try take a little family trip to Connemara during the summer holidays, each time I fall in love with more, whether the sun is shining or not … this year it was.
I was thrilled to shoot some production photos for Ballet Ireland’s The Nutcracker during dress rehearsal night in The Gaiety. A wonderful show that travelled around Ireland delighting audiences.
A few photos from the little dancers display earlier this year at The Peelo School of Dance – and a little display from the older students giving them something to aspire to!
Well it only took me a year – Happy 1st Anniversary to my sister and her husband Andy, this time last year we had a few gorgeous sunny days in Mayo.
Little Niamh photographed just before she takes off and starts running around the place!
Another stage to adjust to, love the happiness the shows on the faces of toddlers starting to walk, they just love the new found freedom.
