One of my coworkers recently asked me if I was interested in a family portrait session.
She is a mother of two, that was for me a new experience (I only had the opportunity to shoot families with one child) and a new challenge.
It was a great and exhausting challenge but something that you can't do alone; hopefully my bf is good with children, that helped a lot!
After a delicious meal on the Saturday evening and a gigantic breakfast, we were ready to have a walk to Emo Court (near PortLaoise).
Anne-Claire’s children had a very good time playing with a ball or running in the grass. Everybody was photographed, posing or not.
The little girl looks like a doll: blond hair, beautiful blue eyes and a pale skin. Her brother preferred to run in the park instead of being a model. But I succeeded to have nice pictures of him and his mother.
After two hours of shooting, the children (and I) were exhausted. So, we decided to have a break in a café: hot drinks and cakes.
We really want to thank Anne-Claire and her family for the welcome and the nice time spent with them. It was my first family shooting in Ireland and I will never forget it.
