Rock 'n'roll bride!

A recent hen shoot in the Pillo hotel  Galway turned out to be a rockin experience. Our bride to be Elaine was surprised with the 'cosmo makeover session' by her friends. They even went to the trouble of making the ultimate soundtrack for her and bringing it down so we could have a bit of craic during the shoot. As Alice cooper and Metallica were blaring the ladies all had their makeup applied by Theresa Danaher and there was plenty of banter between them in the hotel room! (yes we did a group in the hotel bedroom believe it or not!)
Seeing as this was planned to be done in the  room we opted for the pyjama party look and the girls all had a lovely set each for the photo shoot. Firstly  we did the glam one to one shots for a different look followed by some shots of the bridal party and different scenarios of family etc.
On went the Pj's and all hell broke loose - pillows flying and plenty of belly laughs! We did some tongue in cheek shots in the bed also just for fun. Here are some snippets!
I have visions of them all at Elaine's Halloween wedding moshing up a storm!!

Thoughts of the morning after creeping in!

Autumn Baby bump shoot

The lovely Ms D approached me for a Baby bump shoot recently as she felt it was time to document this special time in her life. Unlike myself she was brave enough to find out what sex the baby will be - we hinted at this in one image..! She was positively blooming and it showed through in her images.  We also took the time to do an original Autumn theme shot of the bump which is one of my personal favourites...afterall we end up calling our little ones 'pumpkin' often enough!!
 I have to thank her for allowing me to show some snippets from her shoot as this really is such a personal experience. x
