Last year, I had the pleasure of shooting with the very beautiful Actor, Méabh Ní Chualáin. I cant believe I never blogged these images but one thing lead to another and soon after I shot these I ended up injuring myself. I had to put the camera down for awhile and take a break but here they are, I just loved doing this shoot!

Méabh is a regular on the popular Irish language soap, Ros Na Rún on the TG4 Irish language Television channel. I sort of knew her through a friend of mine and from the arty scene in Galway too. I had previously shot with the lovely Séona Tully who also is a regular on the program too (Séona was my first shoot ever!!) so it was lovely to work with another person from Ros Na Rún!

I was delighted when she emailed me about shooting some photos as I just love working with Actors! Even though I love models, I do – working with an actor in from of the camera is so different to a model. They can really, really act and portray emotions, its incredible and brilliant for a photographer!

So we decided to shoot around Galway on a busy Autumn day. Méabh had her friend and TG4 makeup artist Anna McDonnagh join us to do makeup. I knew Anna also through Into The West Blogger Network as she is a beauty blogger too so it was great to finally work with her in this capacity and see her do her stuff! She is an excellent makeup artist and a true professional! I real enjoyed this shoot and loved finally working with beautiful Méabh. Here are some of my faves from the shoot!
