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.

Happy 12/12/12!

It’s become a bit of a tradition here to post on repeating dates since I started the blog on 08/08/08! And i’ve tried to make sure I update every year since so hence this update even though it’s been quiet here for far too long! I was hoping to do a monster post or best of 2012 but between getting Christmas orders ready and battling this “dose”, I am about done out. There’s still time before the end of the year but in the meantime, I will leave you with this ad that appeared in the local papers today. Don’t forget, gift vouchers are available for all your special occasions through out the year. ­čÖé

You can catch up with what I’ve been up to HERE!

Lookie!

I know it’s probably not cool, but I am so super excited and honoured to have my work featured on mrs2be.ie! My first submission and feature, natch!

If you’re visting from there, thanks for stopping by. You can keep up to date with me here as i’m a very naughty blogger!

Summertime shoots are in full swing and my next shoot involves sprinkles and glitter among other things so check back soon.

Just can’t resist!

Okay, I was preparing Megan and Sean’s photos and I absolutely could not resist posting a few more. ­čÖé
I LOVE my job ­čÖé

Updates!

Just a quick update, I hope to do some over the next few days but it has been absolutely hectic here! I tell myself it’s a good thing though.

This is an update on my last post with Julie in her Shave or Dye quest. The big day came and though *I* wasn’t sure she was going to do it, Julie turned what would be a traumatic experience for people who don’t have the choice, into a celebration. To celebrate the fact that we did have that choice and to celebrate and honour those that don’t.

Well done!

This is Julie. See Julie’s lovely hair. See Julie SHAVE her hair off for The Irish Cancer Society with TodayFM’s Shave or Dye. No mere dye job for this lovely, she’s going whole hog! She is then donating her hair to a charity that makes wigs for children that need them. Support her here.

I met Julie and her lovely family on Bundoran beach on a typically wet and misty Irish morning. But the wellies were out and there was lots to explore so off they went!

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

A&V

So my blogging frequency still hasn’t improved but I am definitely still about! Make sure you check out my Facebook page “Christina J Irwin Photography” to keep up to date with all that’s happening! Here are a few from a recent shoot with the lovely Amy and Vlad, can’t wait for your wedding!

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.

Great expectations!

i LoVe maternity shoots. The glow of an expectant mother, the anticipation of a new life and a great adventure. It’s enough to make you broody! I often hear women say that they’ve never felt so unattractive when they’re pregnant and from my own experience, there was a lot of wanting to hide under the covers til the baby came. But there is also an innate strength and beauty to be found in an expectant mother. A mystery and miracle that is wholly a woman’s. Nine months of nurturing that start a person. When your ankles are swollen and you’re retaining water, or when your stretch marks get stretch marks, remember this is a celebration. This is life.

great expectations.
