Flower Power 70’s inspired Pregnancy Shoot

If you haven’t been to Mount Usher Gardens in Wiclow..Go!I came across it researching for places to go for Aoife and Glens shoot and I am so glad I did, what a hidden Gem. Aside from its astounding beauty its so peaceful and you feel as is you have really escaped the rat race of everyday life. I knew that it would work so well for the theme that we wanted and although we had to postpone the first time due to bad weather, it was worth the wait because the day we had was incredible. Having know Aoife and Glen for quite some time now and watched their lovely relationship grow I was so happy to photograph them before they start this wonderful new chapter in their lives. Aoife you look so beautiful and you the love between you two really shows. Thank you for such a great day and letting me share such beautiful photos that I hope will be cherish for a long time.

Tribute to Girl Power xxxx

Anyone who knows my beautiful sister, Debbie and her adorable daughter, Hannah knows that this past year hasn’t exactly dealt them the best hand.. I have been meaning to do a portrait session for sometime now but I’m glad, that a year on, much stronger, happier and more beautiful than ever, I waited. These two young ladies are testament to how love can help us move from the most painful of situations we will ever experience. Their love for one another is eminent in their everyday lives and of course will be in their portraits. Debbie, you are SUPERMOM and Hannah, you are just the cutest little thing who is growing up SO FAST!

Aside from being my family and I love you unconditionally.. I have so much respect for you and will always be in awe of your strength. Go girl power! Women rock!!! xxxx

Bed Full of Roses

When little Darcy was born late last year I couldn’t wait to go over and take some photos of her. She is such a chilled out baby!! I wanted to create a little mood to the photos with some lovely fresh roses to compliment her beautiful skin and add a bit of girliness to the shoot in a fresh way. Delighted how the photos turned out and really feel that this can be a start of an ongoing series with flowers and babies. Thank you Linda and Colin for always giving me free reign on my portraits and your constant faith in my work. xxDarcy Roses BlogDarcy Roses Blog 2

Ida and Lucas Maternity Shoot

I was so happy when Ida asked me if I would do the ‘Mum to be’s Final Journey Package’ for her. I have known Lucas and Ida for a couple of years and think they are one of those couple that have really found ‘The One’. They are friendly, fun, creative people so I knew this was going to be a great shoot. Ida and I worked together to achieve the looks that she wanted and she also let me work away with my creativity. the shots were taken in their beautiful new home in Trim and then we set off to the woods to get the outdoor shots. These photos just go to show, you do not need a fancy studio to create good shots, just a bit of imagination. They very kindly let me use some of the intimate and beautiful shots taken from the day. Really looking forward to the arrival of the little one and can’t wait for the second phase (Newborn) of the Package.

Six weeks after lovely little Noa was born we set out to shoot the second phase of my ‘Mum’s to be Final Journey’ Package. The shoot was set in their beautiful home in Trim. Lucas and Ida worked tirelessly with me to create all the scenes we both wanted and Noa bless her little soul put up with four hours of modelling work. The hard work payed off and the photos that were achieved we exactly what I had envisioned. Such a pleasure to see all the ideas be brought to life and have a happy couple with memories to cherish forever.

Thank you Ida and Lucas and Noa amazing shoots!

“Dena, we are just looking at the picture there now. They are amazing, loving every single one of them! It’s gonna be so hard to chose some pics.
Thanks again for the wonderful pictures.” Ida J.Bird
