Vietnam - the people

Vietnam is an incredible country, I think its mainly the people that make it what it is, they are so happy and welcoming. From the bustling streets of Hanoi, the serenity of Halong Bay to the chilled vibe of Hoi An everyone you meet will be full of smiles and humbleness. I got lost just watching people everyday. A photographers heaven!

I am so happy I got to be one of the firsts to photograph this little lady, something tells me she will be a star. She was a dream to shoot and she is just turning 7. Check out a couple of my favourites from the session.

Fall fun with Alex

Alex and his dad had a great day out at Appleland and I was there to capture all the fun. Alex loves trains so it was a real treat for him to get to ride one to the corn maze and back to the pumpkin patch.

I have lots of new work to post but waiting on different things to fall into place so for now here are a few iPhones snaps over the last couple of weeks. Fall is almost my favourite season, I crave my summers.

The array of colours, the real fresh smell in the air, squirrels scurrying everywhere which I find cute, they drive my beagle nuts!

Family day at High Park

Family shoot with graphic designer Sylvie, her husband Mike and baby Juliette on this glorious day in High Park. The light was so nice and Juliette was in great form the whole time.

New Born Juliette

Cute new born session with baby Juliette earlier this summer, here are a couple of my favourite shots from the day

Hayworth Vintage

I have only just realised I never blogged about one of my favourite shoots Hayworth Vintage. From the styling, hair and make-up, to the models and locations this shoot was so full of beauty and talent. We shot on a fairly cold day for the spring/ summer collection so the girls were real troopers. The location was Malahide in Dublin.

Catherine Stevens owner of Hayworth Vintage, home of one off original vintage dresses and accessories had such an array of beautiful pieces for this shoot, the girls looked like they walked straight out of the 40s & 50s. MUA Lisa pulled out all the stops to complete our vintage looks.


Models: Susan McAdam and Laura Holland
Hair & MUA: Lisa McLoughlin
Stylist: Catherine Stevens of Hayworth Vintage
Location: Malahide Castle, Station and Village
