Earlier this season, Orla and I finally got around to shooting some looks. Orla is one of my favourite people to shoot. I met her a couple of years ago when she decided to not only start a blog but her business too, she wanted to shoot some promo shots as well as some outfit shots for her blog, thus started a wonderful little friendship. Now she is a very well established and very sought after Personal Fashion Stylist with a booming business. Her work with her clients brings them the very best of the seasons style and helps them discover their style along the way.

As well as this, Orla worked with me on some Fashion Editorials for Irish Magazines, check out this one we did for the Irish Examiner Magazine. we shot outfit photos last year when she was pregnant with her baby! This shoot also was a great one!

Fashions fade, style is eternal. ― Yves Saint-Laurent

Orlas own style is fantastic, I often say that anyone can be fashionable, I mean anyone can buy the seasons must haves’ and wear them ‘off the rack’ but Orla has style – something not many people can boast. She has an eye for style, she has her own style, she knows how to style other people and knows both what she likes & what suits her. She doesn’t conform to latest trends – well, not in any way you would overly notice anyway. She has a wardrobe to die for and a solid collection of stylish wardrobe staples. (Believe me! Ive seen the wardrobe!! I DIE!)

Having not shot with Orla in quite some time (since before she had her baby) we decided to shoot these looks earlier this  Autumn. The Dungarees have been a staple in Orla’s life this past season so she wanted to show how to style them creatively and in different ways. Long gone are the days of baggy, 90s ‘rees! You can read more about this look and her styling over on her blog.

I absolutely love shooting with Orla, although, we the amount of chatter we do, our shoots always take awhile. On the day of this shoot I finally met Orla’s baby son Bobby who I also got to shoot some images of too.  He’s handsome like his parents and a wonderful baby. I don’t normally photograph peoples children but I was delighted that we were able to send the shots over to his dad, Colin who was away working at the time. Spreading the joy!

This lady totally proves that we ladies can be both an awesome, stylish mommy  and be a working lady too!

I have two more blogger photoshoots in the pipeline at the moment and am working on dates for some creative portrait shoots in the new year, Hope you enjoy!

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with blogger, Laura ‘Nellydoll’ Carroll. What I absolutely love about Laura is her blog is truly different, her style, her art, (she’s a class artist too) her writing, everything. When you read as many fashion blogs & magazines as I do (and Im sure you do too) they can sometimes tend to start to look the same (there are, of course exceptions to this) but generally, I scroll through a lot of pages with a lot of the same content.
Laura’s bubblegum pop style, ever-changing hair colour & love of the extraordinary, Laura really gives you a glimpse of her personality which comes out in her style and I for one LOVE that in a blog/blogger. Be sure to check her out at NellyDoll Blog & show her some love!

I shot some images of my beautiful friend Julia a few months ago, first time I was alilttle nervous because Julia is a wonderful photographer! But, at that point I realised that I liked shooting her & her energy and it isn’t that scary shooting a photog! Julia inspires me everyday and pushes me gently when I need it. We’re opposites in many ways but alike in more!
