Poppiesandme go to Norway | Part Three | The Royal City of Trondheim

August 28th. 2014 | Leave a comment

Words can never describe what we witnesses over the next three nights. Lights that danced like will-o’ the wips, right up so close that you could touch them, spreading so vast that your eyes ached to take it all in. We saw the lights in greens, pinks, hits of reds and yellow. We watched them play hide and seek over mountains, we watched them skip across the freezing waters.

Jennifer & Patrick | Lovebirdshoot | Kilkee | Ireland

August 25th. 2014 | 1 Comment

We started this lovebird shoot packing a picnic of all our, I mean , their fav foods and took a wee trip on a train to the coast to the wonderfully sunny Kilkee. Where we sat for a while and watched the world go by. It really was just one of those relaxed afternoons where we chatted and took some pictures and chatted some more. One of those days where you never wanted it to end. xxxx

The Sister Tess | Portraits | PoppyHQ

While learning the camera skills that are required of me, I needed some one to practise on. I could think of no one else but my beautiful sister, Tess. I know I am biased on the beauty front, but hey! Tess was my birthday present finally arriving home for Christmas 91′ after surprising the world a couple of months previously. I knew then at the ripe old age of 11 that my life would never be the same again! Weighing in at a bag of sugar when she was born, Tess has grown into a wonderfully strong spirit. She has defied all the odds and logic  to be here with us and I really think the world is a better place for it! Tess has a “unique” laugh that I…View Full Post.

Jill & Steven | The Dunraven Arms | Adare | Ireland | Wedding

June 17th. 2014 | 1 Comment

So one day I get this email, from this nice lady called Jill. “Hmmm” I thought to myself as I sent back a response, should I ask if she has any brothers and if so would they be called Robbie and Niall? No, I thought, like what are the chances? I did and it turns out she did and they were. Still strikes me as mad that I knew Jills two insanely crazy/talented/loveable brothers from school but not herself, part of me wishes that I had, as Jill is one incredibly, funny, caring and beautiful soul. Even if I did think that her directions were a little bizarre we found her parents house in the country side and settled into a what turned out to be a very memorable day….View Full Post.

Valerie & Mark | Kilshane House | Wedding | Ireland

June 04th. 2014 | 1 Comment

Awh Valerie and Mark! What an awesome couple. It seemed rather fitting that they got married in Kilshane House, a place we know and love so well. Valerie was perfectly content when we arrived to Kilshane, more lady of the house than nervous bride to be! We chit-chatted for a bit, though there were interruptions from Mark! Every now and then some one would arrive at the door with a wee present sent from Mark to his bride to be. Queue swooning from me and shaking of the head from Sean! Take note grooms to be, this is definitely how to start out a marriage on the right footing, start as you mean to go on!!! I have to say I was totally blown away by Valeries Dress… It turned…View Full Post.

Valerie and Mark | Love bird Shoot | Dublin | Ireland

June 02nd. 2014 | Leave a comment

Valerie and Mark brought us to Dublin Christmas just gone, for their Lovebirdshoot {no giving out for a christmas post in June please.} It was a shoot to be full of romance and memories of their time living in Dublin before the big move to the other side of the country. We imagined twinkly lights, hot chocolates, snuggles with wooly hats and scarves, strolling through Trinity college. What we did not bank on was the baileys coffees and the lovely lazy chats in a teeny tiny bar and for the fight that occurred in Merrion Park. Relax there wasn’t an actual fight, well not really! While the couple were nestled up in the warmth of autumnal leaves, Sean may have mentioned about throwing leaves in the air, you know for…View Full Post.
