On the blog this week, July 5th

School's out for summer! The weather is gorgeous in Dublin, Ireland. A perfect time for family photographs in the sun. On the beach. Or in the park.


Walking into Blackrock village this morning, the sea was a bright line of blue. I could imagine being in the Mediterranean it was so hot looking. The beach at Seapoint, Dublin, is full of bathers, particularly now the weather is slightly warmer.


The longest day of the year, the summer solstice has passed, so although it is still the height of summer, the days will be slowly shortening. This means golden hour will also be earlier and earlier too.


I am looking forward to individual portrait sessions, as well as engagement & maternity photography on the beach at Seapoint booked soon! Can't wait to share! As well as checking the weather forecast, it is important to check the tides. After all, there needs to be a low tide to get down on the beach for family & lifestyle photography. Rocks make the perfect backdrops, and places to perch for a portrait


I am also looking to get away this summer. A holiday! It has felt like a long time since we got away... Hopefully to France soon, then...In late July or early August.


Here are some quick portraits of my daughter from last summer in France. In the meadow by the house. French summer portraits can't be complete without a summer straw hat!


Incidentally, hats are wonderful in individual portraits in general. They make the perfect focal point.


Enjoy summer, talk to you soon
