“Goodbye sweet summer sounds……..”

I love what I do….but I think that I have uttered those words more than once at this stage !! Who would blame me…..getting to spend time with wonderful people…capturing special moments….memories to cherish…..I’m also so very fortunate to meet some of my favourite people on a regular basis….to do just that….capture special moments….It’s so very humbling to watch these three beautiful little ones growing up in front of my lens…..catching glimpses of the wonderful young women these ladies are well on their way to being……catching little Mr. L’s sheer delight at the most simplest of things…..watching him wrap his two adoring sisters around his adorable little fingers…..its moments like these that make me very very blessed.   It’s moments like these that turn into cherished memories. 

“Grow old with me..The best is yet to be ”

I honestly believe we meet people for a reason…there is no “chance happening” and meeting Judi and her wonderful family has changed my views on growing older….on growing up ! Judi is one of those “magnets” those people who are a bright light that draw all near…..she travelled to Ireland with her son, daughter, son in law and beautiful grandchildren and our whole time together was a series of giggles and belly laughs…..she has an amazing sense of humour and shares such a special bond with her family….everyone being so attentive…loving…and yes there was some teasing..hey what family is without it !! Unfortunately there was a member of their family who could not make the trip…however they marked him in a very special way….Liz…your amazing..I’m saving that idea for again !! I’ve made friends with this family…how could I not….I could not leave the effervescent Judi without asking her what was her “secret”…what had her 84 years on this earth taught her…..her reply…Laugh…as often as possible, surround yourself with those that love you and finally a large glass of white wine is good for the soul !! Wise words indeed…..My dear friends I’m so very proud to introduce you all to Judi and her amazing family !

I was captivated the moment I met these three very beautiful, very different..very unique little girls….adored by their Momma and Poppa…not to mention Auntie M ! I was also very honoured as this gentle family had travelled some distance to spend a little time with me. It was so very beautiful to watch their loving relationship… and to witness their unique personalities….little ones are a delight to work with as they are always honest…always so trusting and like me believe in magic !   Here is a little of the magic we saw that afternoon. 

” Family is not an important thing, it’s everything”.

Some months ago I received a beautiful, warm email from a lady called Holly who was hoping, during her family’s trip to Ireland to capture some memories of her beautiful girls “before they grew up and left home”….Holly’s words struck a cord with me instantly…and we soon became fast friends.  By the time her husband and beautiful daughters arrived I felt I knew them ….and what sweet girls they are…as beautiful on the inside as they so obviously are on the outside.   We spent a few hours together on a magical sunny evening….we laughed..shared stories and captured some memories.  

Family

I cant begin to describe my delight with this adorable young family….suffice to say I was in my absolute element when they also bought some props along !! There is nothing I love more than Mommas and Poppa’s more excited than I am..and boy did Paul and Lorraine show excitement…and energy..lots and lots of energy…Little man C had just taken some steps in the days running up to our time together  and it was magic to watch him do it ….magic and so very touching…his little baby steps…towards his Momma’s outstretched hands…all the while Daddy making sure everything would be OK.   Ladies and Gentleman I’m so very proud to share some very special moments with you…this is what life is all about.
