Outdoor Family Portrait Shoot

It’s the perfect Summer for an outdoor family portrait shoot. This shoot was planned to celebrate a golden wedding anniversary and involved all the family including Cracker the horse and two dogs.

Punchestown

It was a pleasure to work at Punchestown Racecourse to capture the atmosphere and spirit of the racing during the Punchestown Festival.

Flag Iris

It’s amazing how exotic the flag iris looks on an overcast February afternoon if you stop to look! All the early Spring bulbs seem to be abundant this year, from snowdrops to the hyacinths which are just starting to appear. Looking forward to the bluebells over in Charnwood this year.

Hare Photography

Discovered some hares living fairly locally – there appear to be three of them. A few images from a couple of visits – the low light of an early morning visit gave a painterly feel to the last two images – will look great printed on art paper.
