Happy Happy!

So, is the end of February too late to wish you all a happy new year? ­čśë

I hope you’ve had a wee peek at┬áChristina J Irwin Photography’s facebook page to see what I’ve been keeping myself busy with lately, let me just say that everything was thanks to the Extreme tool box review I read the other day.

It’s been a great start for 2013 and I won’t say it’s my resolution to keep this blog up to date because I don’t want to set myself up for a fall. But I will try. Trying to keep up with all this social media is tough!

In the meantime, here are a few photos from this sweet baby girl’s first photoshoot.

Vavavoom!!!!

Wow!

On 12/12/12, this blog will be four years old! And what a bad blogger am I! While all around me, blogs about every imaginable thing, I have been neglecting mine.:( I’m not one for resolutions but I will *try* to update more often. You can catch more recent updates on my facebook page!

I shall leave you with a few photos from today’s shoot. A little bit different, but I am all for expanding my repertoire. ­čÖé

Summer!

I’ve been a very bad blogger, haven’t I? Let me assure you, I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth (although it sometimes feels like I’m buried under mountains of editing!). I do update my facebook page a little bit more regularly, so please head over for a peek. ­čÖé

In the meantime, a few bits from the last few months.

Max and Anna Marie, a Winter Handfasting

Why would I shoot a wedding during the worst winter in the last 10 years with the most deplorable driving conditions AND 37 weeks pregnant? Well, for the love of, well, love… What else?

Max asked me to help with his wedding photographs a few months back and knowing how late in the game I would be by the time it rolled around, I made no promises, but boy was I glad to be part of their wonderful day. The ceremony was a traditional handfasting and it was held at Markree Castle in Co Sligo. Very intimate and very personal, it was a great experience. I hope these have done their day some justice!

One radiant bride, check.

Ahhhhhhhhh. Gorgeous cake, made by the groom’s mum!

It’s so hard to choose which photos to include here but I hope it’s given you a flavour of their day.

Check back soon!

What’s up, pussycat?

So, continuing on from my last posts’ feline theme, i present, Gabriella kittycat. As you can see, it’s a dry run of her halloween costume. I normally make them but this was a present from my SIL. Needless to say, she loved it and I couldn’t get a great picture because she was so excited showing it off!

Shoes, Glorious Shoes!

From one of my first jobs this year for Dance Supplies Europe. I really must do more product photography, even if it’s just to get the practice in.

I’ve been a bit swamped and haven’t got my workflow thing going on so I thought i’d post this to inject a bit of colour to the blog.

In other news, I’ve ordered my new business cards from MOO. I CAN’T wait to get them ­čÖé
