International Womens’ Day 2018

Happy International Womens Day!

 

When women support each other, incredible things happen. 

Let’s not forget that, I know March 8th is about celebrating strong women, equality and many other things but this should be on our minds all the time not just one day!

A girl should be two things: who and what she wants. 

Behind every successful woman is herself. 

You can tell who the strong women are. They are the ones you see building up one another instead of tearing each other down. 

The woman who does not require validation from anyone is the most feared individual on the planet.

So here’s to strong women, may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.

By the Lake..

A lake carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable..William Wordsworth. 

I met Jo after taking some photos of  the wedding band she sings in The Moog69’s, ( they are brilliant check them out!) she came to me looking for new photos for her website and solo church side of things, so we had a chat over a coffee, clicked straight away and started planning. She was very open to ideas and naturally goes with a bit of a rock chick vibe, I like to try to push things a little out of the ordinary but still stay in that comfort zone so it’s not forced and unnatural, so after talking to Jo I knew Jill would be brilliant at bringing all of our ideas together, more coffee… loads of ideas.. we always tend to go waaaaay beyond the brief, get super excited then nail it down to something not too scary! So off we went to Glendalough one morning, it was an awesome day outside in the cold, wandering around the beautiful lake and playing in the trees, it was really fun! and this is what happened…….

 I did share a few photos before but I love them so much I had to show you some more, It would be the perfect romantic spot for an engagement shoot or even a family portrait session with the kids splashing by the water.

Thanks to Jill for her styling on the day and to Jo for being so good at standing in cold water!!

Gorgeous (…and cold) Glendalough

Heres a little teaser from a stunning outdoor shoot i did this weekend with the lovely Jo for her new website.

I arrived in the morning with Jill who i often collaborate with and was styling for the day, check out her website for more about her .  We wandered up to the lake and it was absolutely breathtaking, the water was still, there were low clouds in the valley and it was quiet, although a bit chilly! It was everything id hoped for when planning the shoot so i was super excited to see what we could get up to!

We had several outfit changes in the day, lots of cold water to contend with and plenty of tourists watching us, Jo did so well taking all my directions!!  Heres a small taster of the shoot…
